5 TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR MENTAL ENVIRONMENT TO INVITE NEW OPPORTUNITIES

It’s no new concept to the Holistic Fashionista that space and energy are vital components to a healthy mindset and a healthy business. Whether it’s rearranging furniture, filing old paper work, or getting a new haircut, sometimes it’s even something as small as mending a few items of clothing that will help sales flow like water. It’s imperative that we keep the chi flowing.
As we enter a new season, the second quarter, slowly peeling off the layers we endured over the winter, just as we practice daily gratitude or our much needed yoga routine, it’s also important that we look around and discover what no longer serves us: a beat up desk that’s more falling apart than vintage, an ancient cell phone that makes social networking nearly impossible, goopy nail polish that belongs in the trash, or expired make-up that could be the culprit of those less than glowing skin days.
Here are several ways you can improve mental environment to invite more opportunities as we move into one of the busiest seasons!
1:: Desktop/Back-Up Drive Dump
Look, I’m not preaching here, my desktop is usually a HOT MESS, but from time to time I have to clean it up because, well, it’s just necessary. I wish I was one of those OCD people when it came to making folders for everything on my computer, but I’m not. Do yourself a favor and say goodbye to outdated Facebook banners or old advertisements you made for Instagram (that didn’t perform). And when that waste basket is full, empty it. You’ll feel almost as great as that last organic facial you had last weekend!
2:: Jewelry Box Purge
Most of us fashionistas have a jewelry box and some of us still have jewelry we wore in high school— you know what I’m talking about— some plastic techno rings or cheap-o metals that contain harmful toxins like nickel. Do your body and your brain a favor and go through your jewelry box and donate or toss any jewelry that you won’t wear anymore. If it’s something sentimental, give it to your daughter or donate it to a women’s shelter. Another woman’s trash is another woman’s treasure, right?
3:: Color Coordinate Everything
Just yesterday I went on an organizing frenzy and even color coordinate not only my wardrobe, but my collection of shoes. If you’ve followed me in the past, I’m a fan of color coordinating things: books, dishes, etc… And while I do not follow the traditional rainbow when color coordinating items, I am a fan of mixing it up while keeping it coded. For instance, if you have a couple leopard printed tops and a whole bunch of camel-colored blouses, because beige is a color in a leopard print, I would pair those colors together. Heck, I may even throw black into the mix. Have fun with color coordinating. It’s super creative and the end result is usually stunning— just imagine waking up every morning with new outfits to pair!
4:: Trim Your Tresses
I realize it’s approaching festival season and long hair is all the rage, but as my hairdresser told me, long, unhealthy hair is not pretty and nor does it make you look younger. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had my Operations Manager trim my hair or taken a pair of shears to my pony tail… I know, I know— so wrong, but those dead ends were killing me! Book an appointment with your hairstylist to maintain healthy, strong hair. Then you can get new head shots taken! Double win.
5:: Unlock Your Kismet Client
As a business owner, we’ve all heard the term “target market”, but the majority of small business owners haven’t quite nailed who “their person” really is. We keep trying to put people into a box or write down a laundry list of characteristics or perhaps even where they shop. But there is something much more effective to discovering your target market, and that is to unlock your Kismet Client®. A Kismet Client® will make your business— not finding yours may break your business.
One of the biggest questions I hear time and time again from clients, academy students, and Club Members, is WHO is are their people? They’re all leaders and looking to grow their own tribe, so it’s paramount you know exactly who your Kismet Clients are so you can pick them out of a crowd, get the right traffic to your website, and clear your mind from all the questions around this topic! This is a topic that keeps most entrepreneurs up at night!
It may sound cumbersome, but rolling up your sleeves and getting to clearing our your clutter, refining your look, and working on your business are mandatory ingredients to success.
