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!

ONE more sleep until I head off to the USA!

My mind cannot even fathom how fast time has flown leading up to this.

I'm in for a big month! Kicking it off in New York with The Champagne Dame to co-host the New York Champagne Insiders Tour (the itinerary is insane).

I then break out to LA for 11 days for work and play and see it out in Miami for 5 nights.

June 2017 is going to be killer! X

Ps. I'll be sharing the trip on video via Instagram Stories - play along: @colettewerden

Pps. Business as usual with our clients in OZ whilst I'm gone - my team is holding the fort brilliantly.

Colette Werden with Colette Werden.

Be with those that cherish you in a way that nourishes you.

Those that respect your time and value your presence.

Those that look through the walls you put up when you're hurt and hear past the words you say when you're having trouble expressing yourself.

Those that are so intuitively connected to you that they only need to feel your energy to know where you're really at.

They remind you of your greatness when you forget it.

Tell you the truth when you can't admit it.

And nudge you back on path whenever you veer off.

Those people aren't just friends.

They're a soul family. X

*This is a massive shout out to my team - they are part of my soul family - we're stronger than ever and I'm so grateful for it! ❤

There's something about you.

You're memorable.

Your eyes see the greatness in others.

Your smile warms the loneliest of hearts.

Your words awaken dormant dreams.

Your actions activate inspiration.

Yet it's even more than this that keeps the memory of you alive.

There's something about you that's indescribable.

Unmeasurable.

Unconfined.

Contagious.

Your presence alone is influential.

Thank-you for choosing to live out the best version of you; despite the set-backs, hardships and pressures of living in a society that prefers a mould.

You're a positive influence in more lives than you will ever realise. X

Colette Werden with Colette Werden.

How you show up in the world is a reflection of who you believe you are.

The pieces of fabric you choose to wear are reflecting whether you are wanting to hide, settling for "that'll do" or allowing yourself to shine.

What you choose to post on social media is a representation of what you stand for.

The words you speak represent how you feel about yourself and how you are wanting others to feel about you.

The state of your self-talk is effecting how present you are in a conversation; how certain you are when you communicate and the level of eye contact you're making with those passing by.

The people you show up with are a reflection of your values in relationships and in life.

The leaders you support is your influence on how you want the world to be.

The opportunities you go for directly display the courage, skill and self-belief that you believe you have.

Everything on your outer world is a reflection of your inner world. X

The last is you in spades young Colette☺️👌🏻

Colette Werden with Colette Werden.

We all have a sob story. A sequence of reasons that we play out to keep us from taking any responsibility for our actions in those times we don't want to face up to what's really going on.

The "poor me" story that relinquishes us from growing through the times that make us the most uncomfortable.

This story had worked, its gotten us to where we are now. We and those around us have believed it, empathised with it and forgiven it.

All because we accept that we are all doing the very best with the situation we find ourselves in right now.

But there will come a time that we will get stuck on reciting the same page of the same book; re-reading every letter, every word and every paragraph of that same page without realising that years have passed.

Without realising that whilst we consumed ourselves in our story, it's cost us our mental health, emotional stability, sense of purpose and the true connection with ourselves and those around us.

That story is old; it's repetitive, numbing and boring.

If we keep going with it, it will crush the dreams we yearn to achieve.

We must realise that we are bigger than that story.

We must redefine what "doing our best" means to us.

We must own the fact that we created the "tale of woe" and can re-create a tale of victory.

We must lift our standards and smash through the circumstances that keep us from sitting idle on page one, if we ever want a chance to live out the story our children will be proud of. X

Paula BernadetteWow! Such a rock solid message. I get caught in my story and the stories have kept coming for the last 5yrs. Each time I tried to pull myself another blow knocked me down. And theres one constant knocker that continues knocking...but my boundaries are stronger. I feel myself turning the corner but not sure to where - which is fine - I know its better than where I've been. A former shadow of myself! Broken and broken to my spirit core. So much to relearn...about me, people, relationships, life. But there amongst the pieces, I know I'm very slowly (at times) building myself into my beautiful. Thanks for your post...immensely positive and confirming my way forward can only be forward. 🌹❤🌹❤
