Image consulting is a very exciting and satisfying career path to follow which can be a full or part-time business, conducted from a home office or commercial premises by men and women of all ages. Image consulting as a career incorporates many niches within the areas of personal and professional image. There should never be a reason to grow stale or tired of this career as there are so many challenging niche markets around every corner.
A PROFESSION THAT GROWS WITH YOU
As an image consultant, it's possible to start small and gradually build your skill base. Many consultants run part-time, home-based businesses, and often there is never a need to move beyond this even if they move into corporate image.
Image consultancy complements many other careers and businesses in various industries like makeup artistry, hair styling and fashion design, as well as counselling, coaching and mentoring.
Being able to make a tangible difference in the lives of others is a real joy. Whether it's the discovery of how to look and feel great, attract a partner, nail a job interview, climb the corporate ladder, increase credibility or simply bounce back from a setback, the experience of being a part of your client’s success is a real joy.
A CAREER WITH NO AGE LIMITS
Image consultancy is one of the few industries where it is possible to make a professional income well past the normal age of retirement, especially for women. The reason for this is that the human body continually changes over time and a woman experiencing the challenges of a maturing body would rather consult with a woman they see as attractive and who's more or less in the same age range. This makes image consulting an ageless career.
