Dressing For Success I'm so excited about today's episode because, y'all, we are talking about clothes! Okay, I'm not a fashion expert and I'm certainly not a stylist. But I will tell you, I've never met a pair of pumps I didn't like-and I know that the right outfit can instantly change the way I carry myself, how confident I feel, and my overall mood. It's simple, really: I feel my best when I look my best. And I think you will, too. Now I'm the first to admit: I've made my share of fashion mistakes. A few years ago, I was at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas speaking at a huge conference wearing my most favorite black waxed jeans and a teal blouse. I was in one of my-shall we say-"fluffier" stages. And I may or may not have had to squeeze into those jeans, but I did happen to think I looked pretty cute. But then the photographs from my client came in. One look and all I could see were jeans that were creasing and pulling-in all the wrong places, I might add. Throw in the reflection of the bright stage lights, and it was glaringly obvious that my jeans were entirely too tight. I told my leader right then and there, "I can do better. I will do better." And I haven't stepped foot on a stage since without first asking myself one question: "Am I dressed for success today?" Can the Way I Dress Affect My Business? You may be wondering what any of this has to do with your business. In a word? Everything. The way you present yourself (and what you wear is a big part of that) affects your customers' opinion of you. That opinion and first impression then influences whether they do business with you, which positively or negatively impacts your bottom line. And your bottom line, of course, determines the ultimate success or failure of your business. So dressing for success is about so much more than just clothes! How Can I Dress for Success? In this episode, I'll talk about the three most common mistakes women make when it comes to clothes-and believe me, I've been there too. Yep, I've made every single one of them. But the good news is these mistakes have easy solutions. I'll share those with you as well! By the way, I also have a little formula I follow when it comes to putting together a super cute outfit. And don't worry. It doesn't require a closet full of clothes and accessories or a wardrobe loaded with the latest trends. And you definitely don't need to spend a lot of money to pull it off. Even better? It works every time! It's almost as good as having a personal stylist. I can't wait to tell you all about it! I know that, just like me, you'll feel the best when you look your best. And when you're at your best, I know one thing for sure: There's no stopping you. My Guest This Week Is Toi Sweeney! Toi is an award-winning stylist, brand image specialist, and successful entrepreneur who is passionate about helping women-everyone from influencers to CEOs-present themselves favorably in business. And the stakes are pretty high. "You are a brand. Your clothing is your packaging," says Toi. "That packaging is one of the most visible ways to stand out from the rest." After 20 years in the fashion industry, Toi has styled her share of personalities and has made it her mission to do so as authentically and uniquely as possible. After all, she believes what we wear on the outside should be a reflection of who we are on the inside. But there is a right and a wrong way to achieve that. Did you know that, on average, you have less than nine seconds to convince your customers that you are smart and kind and worthy of their business? And did you know that the color you wear impacts someone else's perception of you? Or that the wrong personal image could lead to lost opportunities? That means every single style choice, from the color of our earrings to the height of the heels of our shoes, is an opportunity to cultivate trust. That may seem like a lot of...

In Episode 12: How to Find Your Business Idea, we talked about taking a look at what you already have to come up with some business ideas. In that episode, I mentioned three things to look at specifically. Three ways to come up with business ideas: Your skills Your stuff Your strengths When you look for business ideas in those three areas, you're making it so much easier on yourself to win! For example, my first business idea came from my stuff. There was an 11-stall barn already on the property I was renting, so I used that to start a horse-boarding business. Now, my second business came out of my strengths and skills. That was a side business doing life coaching, and it was long before I ever became a speaker for Dave Ramsey. But now we're going to take this a step further. If you want to start a business of any kind and you want it to work, your idea needs to be based on two things: It needs to solve a problem. It needs to serve a target market. In this episode, I'll walk you through examples of how to determine which of your business ideas meet this criteria. Related: The One Thing All Businesses Must Have My Guest This Week Is Ken Coleman! My good friend Ken is an author, a speaker, and the host of The Ken Coleman Show on Sirius XM and the EntreLeadership Podcast. His passion is helping other people find their passion. To do that, Ken helps people who feel stuck or confused in their careers by shining a light on their core qualities as a person. From there he brings clarity by weighing their passion against their talents to help them discover what they should be doing with their lives. But Ken didn't start out as a successful speaker and Ramsey personality. Ken says, "I left a corporate VP job at age 31 to chase a broadcasting dream that started with two listeners. One was my wife." Before getting his own show, he spent years working behind the scenes at Ramsey Solutions and eventually on the stage hosting Dave Ramsey's live events. Ken has interviewed hundreds of top business leaders all over the country and helps thousands of people every week with their career and business ideas. In this episode, Ken and I talk about: How to narrow down your top talents-those things you do better than anything else The euphoria that happens on a scientific, physiological level when you're working in your sweet spot Creating a "purpose sentence" for yourself and your business How to change an entire conversation and shift the room by asking the right questions Why chasing significance will bring more success than chasing wealth or status Choosing a Winning Business Idea With Madison Dennis! Our success story this week comes from Madison Hardy Dennis. Madison's business idea checks all three of our boxes: MHD Beauty is based on her skills, her strengths, and her stuff! When she started thinking about leaving her full-time administrative position in 2014, she took stock of all the things in her life she was really good at. She discussed the list with her husband, and they thought about which skills and strengths would lend themselves to a freelance business. She kept coming back to makeup. That first year Madison started her freelance beauty business, she was hired to do makeup for two weddings. But her business has absolutely exploded since then. Last year, her company did makeup for 133 weddings. And y'all, this is just one facet of her business! She'll also tell us everything she took into consideration before hiring team members and what gave her the idea to start her own cosmetics line. Related: Want a Business Like Mine?
