Q. What opportunities will open up to me with a Diploma in Professional Style Coaching™?
Most of our Style Coaches™ set up their own Style Coaching™ businesses
, as self-employed professionals. They work primarily with one-to-one clients and they also offer personal Style Coaching™ workshops
/ Style and Image
evenings / events, Inside & Out Makeovers, they give television appearances, work on fashion shoots, etc, to ensure that their work is varied and not dependent on one portion of the potential of their business.
Others have used their qualification to offer their services in corporate settings offering Style Coaching™
to the staff of various businesses; this can have fantastic earning potential.
Some Style Coaches™ prefer to offer their professional services to malls, department stores and boutiques as either an in-house Style Coach™ or a Style Coach™ who is available on certain days of the week on a freelance basis. This can be a good choice for those who wish to have the stability of a regular, guaranteed income.
A Diploma in Professional Style Coaching™
is fast becoming recognised as a prestigious qualification and it speaks volumes when you are looking to secure positions such as a Personal Shopper or Personal Stylist in department stores and boutiques; we have trained Personal Shoppers and Stylists who either originated from or went on to work for some of the top retailers around the world. Here is a recent email from one of our graduates who is now working in Singapore (we have over 900 graduates throughout 53 countries):
“Here's an article that appeared in a leading Singapore women’s magazine on me. It also features 2 other Style Coaches™ who graduated almost at the same time with me, and was the result of a press release I sent out. In addition, I was also quoted in an article in Time Out, and in December when I was a personal shopper at Paragon Shopping Mall, Her World did a blurb on me. Paragon is also an upscale shopping mall with Gucci, Prada, Miu Miu and other major fashion brands as anchor tenants. I am now the head of Style Services, the personal styling division of Club 21, one of the largest high fashion companies in Singapore. I shop for my clients from within the portfolio of brands that my company represents including Georgio Armani, Dolce and Gabanna, Dries Van Noten, Balenciaga, Marni, Donna Karan and many more. This is one of the best jobs I've done, every day is different, my clients are wonderful and my company is great. I have a team of 4 stylists who work with me. I give presentations to external parties who want to learn more about grooming and fashion. In addition, I host parties for my clients to share the new season’s major trends. I'm really pleased I took up the Style Coaching™ course, it's really helped me a lot to understand people, inside and out.” Q. I’m not sure if I want to do Style Coaching™ as a career, but would the course be suitable for me anyway?
Yes, absolutely! We have had many students complete the course purely for their own personal benefit, and the feedback has been consistently outstanding. Every student who studies Style Coaching™
reports on major changes that they experience as they go through the program, and for many students the course is literally life-changing before they’ve even had their first client! All students find that their personal style develops beautifully throughout the course, they develop new shopping habits, they enjoy their wardrobe more than ever, and look forward to getting dressed every single morning! We have had a 100% student satisfaction rate, with many testimonials stating that even if you never chose to take it to a professional level this course will change your life for the better! We recommend choosing one of our ‘CLASSIC’ packages
!Q. What can I expect to earn as a Style Coach™?
There really is no set salary that a Style Coach™ is limited to; it all depends on what avenues you choose to take, what goals you set yourself and what highs you aim for! The sky is the limit! As a basic starting point, you can expect to earn no less than £60 GBP per hour. For a standard four-hour Style Coaching™
session this would work out at about £240 GBP per session. An experienced and confident Style Coach™ can expect to earn up to twice this amount per hour. Some Style Coaches™ like to operate a sliding scale of charges in order to allow Style Coaching™
to remain accessible to everyone, regardless of their salary. Q. I would like to incorporate my past experience and career into my work as a Style Coach™, is this possible?
Yes, in many cases it is very possible! Many Style Coaches™ have personalised the Style Coaching™
experience to suit his or her past specialisation's, creating new niches and targeting specific needs. Here are some examples of how Style Coaching™
has been cleverly adapted:
- Previous position: Job Recruiter. Style Coaching™ has been used to help people to get back into employment after a long-term career break (coaching them through interview dressing / confidence while giving presentations / creating an appropriate image, etc)!
- Previous position: Carer for Cancer Patients. Another Style Coach™ came from a medical background and decided to offer Style Coaching™ to individuals recovering from debilitating illnesses such as Breast Cancer; she found that Style Coaching™ helped them to focus on creating a positive body image, and helped them to build up confidence again.
- Previous position: Wedding Planner. Style Coaching™ has been offered to bridal parties, from the Bride, Groom, Mother of the Bride, to bridesmaids, etc…
- Previous position: Financial Trader. Executive Style Coaching™ has been offered to various levels of staff, all the way up to Chief Executives.
- Previous position: Photographer. Style Coaching™ has been used by photographers specialising in makeover photo shoots as a ‘feel good’ package.
- Previous position: High School Teacher. Style Coaching™ has been offered to teens in schools, as they often have issues around their changing body image and confidence levels.
As you can see, the list of possibilities is absolutely endless!!
