These days more and more people are considering new ways to work from home, and one of the best ways to achieve this goal is to work for yourself. One increasingly popular option is to start a home-based career as an Image Consultant.
The Association of Image Consultants International (AICI) defines an image consultant as “a professional that provides image consulting for corporations and individuals through workshops, presentations, seminars, and coaching. These consultants may address issues including appearance, communicating effectively, proper attitude, social etiquette, and overall branding.
The Benefits of Starting an Image Consulting Business
There are many instances where a person or corporation may want to hire an image consultant. For starters, those who look to present a high-end image, like executives who want to relate to stockholders of their own company, actors or other performers who need to develop their stage or camera presence, or even those who are planning a formal event, such as a wedding can benefit from the advice of an image consultant that will help them present the right mood, character, and appearance for whatever situation they are facing.
Because potential clients have a lot at stake, they are willing to offer their image consultants good money for their guidance in presenting the best version of themselves. Possible services to offer include
- Personal shopping
- Wardrobe/fashion consulting and closet auditing
- Beauty consulting to determine the best hair and makeup options for the client’s goals
With the right skills and the right clients, you can earn good money for providing these services, because these potential clients have realized the importance of putting their best foot forward in various situations.
