Last night I had a surreal moment when I walked into Barnes & Noble and there in the business section sat my book, Strategically Suited. It hits bookstores nationwide this month! My daughter (she’s 6) asked me how I knew how to write a book. I thought about it and told her I didn’t know how but I said yes to figuring it out.

The truth is, I never planned to write a book. I didn’t put it on a vision board. Or set a goal to be in bookstores across the country. Yet here I am with my second book on the shelf at Barnes & Noble. Pinch me, please!
Her question made me realize that my book is the result of a bunch of yeses. Navigating entrepreneurship is challenging. You must learn to say no. And you try to say yes to the right things. But really it’s just a journey.
This month my yes journey has brought me to the release of the printed version of Strategically Suited. This particular milestone came from saying yes—even when I was afraid to do so.
The Birth of Strategically Suited
In 2011 I said yes to a meeting with a cool woman named Lily Herndon-Weaks—simply to learn more about her and her publishing business. I asked her to edit copy for a program I was putting together. When I left that meeting I called my Dad in shock and said, “I’m going to have a book!” I said yes to have her help me turn all my notes and teleclasses into what became Simply Effortless Style. Without her I don’t know if it would have occurred to me to write either of my books. I am forever grateful to you Lily!
In 2015 I said yes to working with my mentor, Ron Wilder. He wrote a book that year, which inspired me to write another book that was more relevant to the work I do helping entrepreneurs use their image to drive revenue in their business.
In March of 2016 I got on the phone with Angela Lauria of Difference Press and said yes to writing and publishing my second book with her. I didn’t need to know how to write a book. She showed me how easy it can be. I just had to say yes.
In January of 2017 I said yes again to being published by Morgan James who would release my book in bookstores nationwide.
For every one of these yeses there was a time (more like days!) when I agonized over whether or not I could say yes. I wasn’t ready. I didn’t know how I was going to make it all work. But last night, holding my book at Barnes & Noble, answering a simple question for a child I realized the power of YES!

The Key to Your Powerful Brand Image

More often than not, each piece of your brand image was created when you needed it, but not altogether in a strategic fashion. Your image may look fine, but does fine help you grow?

Eventually as you scale, your image foundation cracks, and the way your business presents itself no longer helps propel growth – costing you time and money to fix.

When you unlock your brand power, you get to pick and choose how people perceive you and your brand.

Our Image Mastery System™ takes the 5 key brand components that you already have and ties them together in a way that amplifies your results and achieves your vision.

I feel like a whole new person. I’ve been unchained from the old self. I’ve been freed to laugh and dream and smile. And I’ve become more accessible to my clients, which is the whole point.

Donna Terrell, Criminal Defense Attorney

It is hard to explain why Lee is so brilliant at what she does because it is almost like magic. She pierces through your personality and reflects who you are in what you wear. She does not just pick out great clothes – she picks an outwardly appearance that creates a comfort zone while also allowing the world to see the real you.

Nate Casey, Entrepreneur

Working with Lee has dramatically increased my revenue, not because of what I’m wearing but because of how I show up when I am dressed like my future self.

Angela Lauria, The Difference Press

When I reflect on who I was before working with Lee, I see that everything about me was a muted version of who I am today. And thanks to Lee’s incredible gift, I’m me. I now show up every single day: as the thought-leader Lee helped me dress to become (and be).

Hillary Walsh, Esq., New Frontier Immigration Law

Thank YOU! It was such a fantastic mini-class you took us through. You got everyone really into it! I can hardly believe that I actually had to cut them all off. You are a force! We are very lucky to have had the benefit of your help and we’re all better for it.

Megan Graves, Client Happiness & Team Happiness Coordinator, Upleveling Your Business

You are amazing!!!!!! I’ve been thinking about our conversation all day and this is just brilliant – you are a strategist and creative genius. Your vision completely resonates with me. I am so grateful for you, Lee.

Kelly McGrath, Esq., Kelly McGrath Law

Lee had a surprising way about her that uncovered my deeper self, my reason for being, and encoded it onto my wardrobe like a symbol—a moment-by-moment reminder of who I am, and what I’m here to do. Her brilliance crept up on me; I didn’t realize it was her behind the changes in my life until months afterwards. Now, I am able to approach everything I do from a place of power.

Jonathan Sparks, Esq. Sparks Law

Lee brings to life a vision bigger than I imagined. I’ve had the pleasure of working with her on my personal brand, photo shoot strategy, and the brand experience of events for my non-profit. Through each piece she’s helped me grow as a leader and an organization. I love having her on my team.
