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:

FACEBOOK PAGE

 
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

Colette Werden is with Colette Werden.

Elaborate clothes won't mean the woman will get noticed.

Nor do simple clothes mean she will go unnoticed.

She doesn't have to wear more colour or less colour, more dresses or less dresses.

She doesn't have to wear heels, or the latest trends or whatever other people deem to be appropriate for her age, her body or her size.

A woman will make her mark in whatever she chooses to wear, when she feels like her soul comes alive wearing it.

When she looks at herself in the mirror and feels like herself, again.

When she steps forth with the fierce confidence that she is showing up as who she really is, not who she thinks she should be.

It is only then that she will feel like she can take on the world on her terms. X

Colette Werden is with Colette Werden.

I walked through the Royal Botanic gardens today and for the first time in a long time, I was present.

I didn't use the time to process thoughts, or come up with solutions or even connect to my big vision.

I just walked. With no time restraint, nor pre-conceived path; I allowed my body to take me on whichever path it chose.

I saw a family of Chinese elderly dancing in circles under a pergola, moving with such happiness and fluidity.

One woman smiled at me with such sincerity it moved me.

I saw a large pack of excited young school kids on an excursion with hope in their eyes.

Followed by a tender group of senior citizens with faces covered with lines of wisdom and a wealth of experience.

The contrast was extraordinary.

I saw a couple with a young child immersed in the awe of floral beauty around them.

Whilst a woman presented a Vlog to her iPhone, engrossed with great purpose.

And an African American man sat on the park bench, speaking on the phone to what seemed like a loved one, "I really miss you" he said.

I was needing inspiration to leverage off.

I was needing to feel connected to the energy of life again so I can move forward with inspired action.

I realised as I was walking through the gardens that this connection didn't need to come from great feats or audacious goals, but from the smaller opportunities of wonder that form the true meaning behind the bigger picture.

For the first time, I really understood the sentiment behind the saying "inspiration is everywhere".

I just needed to be present enough to be able to connect to it. X

Colette Werden is with Colette Werden.

You are strong because you have the most remarkable way of getting up when you're knocked down.

You are brave because you stand by what you believe in, even when you fear not belonging.

You are respected because you show up with no pretences.

And loved because of your generous spirit.

Your smile lights up the darkness.

Your touch heals wounds.

Your presence brings hope.

You will always be memorable because of the spark of self-belief you ignite in others.

You are also human.

You are extraordinary even when you need to break down.

Even when you feel you're not coping.

Even when you are fragile, vulnerable and afraid.

Your realness shows others that it's OK not to feel OK.

That it's OK to be all of them, not just the part of them that they think the world needs to see to feel loved. X

Colette Werden is with Colette Werden.

You're aiming to achieve more that most people can even comprehend.

So along the way, you will experience more than most people will ever have enough courage to live through.

High highs.

Low lows.

Breaking points.

Tipping points.

Devastation and elation.

Your "off" days will feel destructive.

And your "on" days will feel soul-soaring.

So you have to get real with yourself - let go of the pressure to feel motivated, passionate and enthusiastic all the time.

You're not going to.

You're going to hate it, resent it and want to check out many times.

But if you choose to keep going, to go all in - no matter how much your mind tries to trick you into giving up - you will be rewarded with a life that most people can only ever dream about. X

Colette Werden is with Colette Werden.

Their bitterness has nothing to do with you. It's a state of their self-hatred.

Their jealousy has nothing to do with you. It's a reflection of what they long for but believe they can't attain.

Their ridicule has nothing to do with you. It's an insight into their self-criticism.

Their gossiping has nothing to do with you. It's their control freak manipulating everything they can.

Just keep showing up.

Keep rising.

They’ll soon realise that the only person they are destroying with their toxicity, is themselves. X
