Client Success Story
Angela Nuss is my first “second generation” client. Her father has been a client for many years. When Angela got serious about moving on in her career, he suggested we get together.
Angela recently graduated from Bentley College with a degree in Management. Her career goal is Event Planner. She is currently working in this field part time and is looking forward to making it a full time career.
After our initial phone conversation, we decided she could use some help updating her professional image plus perfecting her networking and interviewing skills. We started by doing her color analysis; she is a winter. We then went shopping for a few new suits. She already owned many tops that will coordinate with the suits and create a working wardrobe.
Our next meeting was a combination of cosmetic application instruction, goal setting, interviewing and networking skills. It was a lot for one session but Angela is eager to get her career in order. That day proved to me Angela can handle a hectic schedule with many tasks effectively. Qualities a good Event Planner must have.
Angela has a very upbeat personality; she is fun and has a great attitude. I am confident she will be a very successful Event Planner.
Jane was a referral from another of my clients. She is a very lovely lady and professional woman. Our relationship has gone on for a few years now. I have come to know her not only as a client but also as a friend.
We started a few years ago with a friendly conversation about what she was looking for in my services. I always like to get to know my client's lifestyles, interests, careers, goals, budget, etc. before we begin.
The first thing we did was Jane's color analysis. Color is the basis for my image development services; I often like to begin there. We discovered she is a "winter" and should wear cool, bright colors.
Next we culled through her closet, weeding out everything that did not fit her figure type, personality, career, goals, lifestyle and color scheme. I gave her some suggestions to fill in the "gaps" in her wardrobe. Jane loves to shop and was excited to purchase the new things.
Approximately 2 years later Jane was ready for my cosmetic and skincare application instruction. She is currently seeing the results from my skincare and makeup line.
Check out Jane wearing her “cool, vibrant" colors! Her wardrobe, accessory and makeup colors all complement her skintone and natural hair color. She looks fantastic! (See more pictures of Jane on my Before and After page.)
A word from Jane:
Jennifer Lane is a certified financial planner and owner of Compass Planning Associates, LLC. She came to Gretje (Gretje Ferguson Photography) and me to help her with new photos for press releases and her web site. She was a delight to work with! Her intelligence and warm, caring personality really shines through in her photos.
A Word from Jennifer:
Hi Gretje --
Gail Van Kleeck
Gail Van Kleeck is a wonderfully creative person. It was fun working with Gail’s artistic flair when developing her new image. With the publishing of her book, she needed press release pictures and a change in her entire appearance for her promotional tour and speaking engagements.
We began with casual conversation about her personality, career goals, body image and preferences for her new look. I conducted a color analysis to find her best colors in wardrobe, makeup, accessories. I showed her new makeup application techniques. We culled out her entire closets (upstairs and down) removing the pieces that no longer portrayed the "New Gail". I made some suggestions about what she needed to add to her current wardrobe, accessories and makeup.
Gail had her press release photos (above) done by Gretje Ferguson Photography. I assisted with makeup application, wardrobe and accessory suggestions and basic grooming before and during the shoot.
I highly recommend Gail’s interior design services. Her book "How You See Anything is How You See Everything", changed my life. I know it will have a positive impact on yours too.
A Word from Gail:
Lori Johnson is a genius!!!
Lyn Buckley Mogan has been one of my best clients for about 5 years now. She has experienced many of my workshops and one-on-one consultations. We have worked closely together to develop her image to match her professional career advancement. Lyn has seen much success in her writing career both as a corporate employee and as a business owner. I am proud to be a part of her success.
A Word from Lyn:
“Rubbing elbows with executives, yuck!” Even though I’m a professional writer with all the years of experience, credentials, and plenty of references I’ve always been just a tad nervous about becoming a self-employed writer and computer trainer. As a writing and computer consultant, I’ve plenty to offer area businesses from writing, to desktop publishing, to computer training. So what was holding me back -- image -- more defined -- my own image of me. I’ve simply never been comfortable walking into meetings with business executives and selling -- myself. Why not? I simply didn’t look the part and didn’t feel the part. Suits just don’t suit me and where I do wear makeup, I don’t WEAR makeup. I’d never been comfortable wearing formal business clothing. If you aren’t comfortable in your clothing, you don’t look comfortable in your clothing and the result is giving the appearance that you don’t have any self-confidence.
