Well, hello!

It’s great to see you having a stalk of the site.

I have a heads up for you.

We’re right in the middle of re-vamping the website content to reflect our movement towards Authentic Personal Branding.

We’ll be launching Australia’s first Personal Branding program that strips away all the rules of who you think you should be and shows you how you can be the real you, consistently and confidently, from the inside and out.

There will be two; one for entrepreneurs that are the face of their brand and the other is for employees within an organisation. For both the ladies and the gents.

In the meantime, check out one of the Personal Branding pillars; our image development services and let’s team up to grow your success from there.

SERVICES

 

Head over to the Facebook page; that’s where it’s all happening at the moment and join in on the conversations:

And sign up to the letter-of-the-news above, if you’d like to be kept in the loop of the launch.

I’ll catch you on the Facebook page!

Colette Werden with Colette Werden.

You have to be conscious of what you think when you are at a crossroads. The fear of change is crippling you when you are focusing on what you have to lose, rather than all you have to gain.

You have to be careful of the tendency to compare yourself to those you think are superior to you. You are ridden with insecurities when you are focusing on who you are not, rather than who you are.

You have to be conscious of where you are investing your energy. You feel like quitting when you are fixated on all that is going wrong rather than all that is going right.

You have to let go of the belief that there is only one way to live this life. You are being weighed down by judgement when you are wanting others to be like you, think like you, live their life like you, rather than like them.

You have to know that you are always presented with a choice. You will forever feel like it's a hard road when you are only choosing to escape via the easy way out. X

Whose fault do you think it is?

Who made you this way?

Who didn't give you what you needed when you needed it?

Who made you feel like you're not good enough? Not loved? Not deserving?

Who are you pointing your finger at?

Turn your finger around and point it at yourself.

Your life is the way it is right now because of you.

Because of your choice of thoughts, reactions and stories.

Because of everything that you said yes to and everything that you turned down.

Because of every single time you believed that everyone and everything had control over you.

My darling, you are not a victim.

It’s time to stop playing like one.

You have all the power within you to move mountains.

To smash through glass ceilings.

To transform the ordinary to extraordinary.

You are worth more than second thoughts and maybes.

You are worth way more than guilt trips, mindf.cks and other people’s insecure projections.

But the only time that you will ever know this, is when you are pointing the finger at yourself.

It is only then that you will have no choice but to believe that it is you, only you, that has the power to lift yourself out of the dark into the light. X

Colette Werden with Colette Werden.

You've allowed excuses to get in the way for a while now.

You've let self-doubt play its little game and given procrastination its glory in the spotlight.

You've disguised challenges as road blocks.

And villains for heroes.

You've spoken about your big dreams with little minds.

And given naysayers' opinions way too much credit.

You've been running away from it rather than towards it.

It's OK.

But it's enough now.

Clean your slate.

Re-focus.

And f.cking do it already. X

Colette Werden with Colette Werden.

We have seen a woman quit her 9-5 job and start a business she has always dreamed of.

We’ve seen a woman lose 8 kgs of baby weight that she could never budge.

One woman spoke up about a promotion with a large pay rise and got it, after 14 years.

And another faced up to her public speaking anxiety by stepping up on stage to share her story.

One woman committed to buying her own home.

Another decided to pursue her dream of living in Italy.

A woman developed the courage to leave a toxic relationship.

Another attracted her soul mate.

All after their image transformation.

Why? Because when a woman looks at herself in the mirror every day, feeling like she’s in her full power consistently, she acts like she is.

A woman that dresses, walks and talks like she’s going to change her life, will.

A woman that rids herself of the “pieces of fabric” that represent her old conditioning, old patterns and old beliefs will also rid herself of old limitations and flourish in the excitement of new beginnings.

You can do all the “life coaching” and “self-confidence” development you think you need, but the catalyst for change will come when you look at yourself in the mirror and see your internal transformation come to life - physically and energetically.

Your perspective on the way you think you can live your life will change.

Your standards will strengthen.

Your energy will amplify.

Your spark will be back. X

Our image transformations are all encompassing. They have nothing to do with the clothes, but everything to do with the woman wearing them.

We only work with those that are ready to change.

Two experiences are available:

GROUP WORKSHOP - NEXT WEEK.

Our 2 day Women’s Group Image Development Workshop in Melbourne is next week. Friday 18th and Saturday 19th of August, 9-5pm.

This intimate workshop covers a range of topics including self-confidence, self-esteem and overcoming the critical mind when it comes to our authentic identity.

You will discover what your true image actually is and how to bring it to life, with practical, immediately implementable steps. $1497+GST per person. This is our last Image Workshop for the year.

Get in touch with our Brand Manager, Carmen, to learn more (info@colettewerden.com) or call her on 0405 250 653 to lock in your spot.

OR

1ON1 IMAGE DEVELOPMENT

1on 1 Personal Brand Image Development with Dee - this is a “do it with you” service, where we help you discover your new image and help you bring it to life, with a Wardrobe Edit, Shopping Session and Integration.

In Sydney & Melbourne. If you’re in Sydney, our August trip has SOLD OUT. Our next trip will be the week beginning Monday 9th of October. This will be our LAST trip for the year.

Get in touch with our Brand Manager, Carmen, to learn more (info@colettewerden.com) or call her on 0405 250 653 to organise your sessions.

Colette Werden with Nicole Whiley and Colette Werden.

Darling brave heart,

Remember that the crown is heavy, but you wear it like a feather.

Remember that you walk with grace, but you have a mighty roar.

Remember that the track may be unclear, but you're on the right path.

Remember that your strength did not come from flourishing in the light, but by learning how to glow in the dark.

You are courageous.

You are bold.

You are lionhearted.

Remember that your tale of woe will become your tale of victory. X

#AuthenticPersonalBranding #BraveHeart #WrittenByColetteWerden
