If you were directed here from the email you received from me, WELCOME! This is new for me, to have blog posts automatically go out to my email list. I’ve been building my list very slowly for several years now and I know that changes mean I’ll lose some people, and gain some people…so I wanted to fill you in on
what I’ll be blogging about in 2016.
If you’ve been with me for any time at all, you might have noticed that my focus has changed over the years.
When I started with my Mary Kay business in early 2011, I soon launched FanTABulouswomen.com, which focused on image, fashion and beauty. My ideal client was a woman with her own business so I also wrote about direct sales and marketing. All along I threw in some posts about motherhood, home and health and wellness.
I quickly discovered that the women I was giving makeovers to also needed CONTENT makeovers.
I have always loved to write and I have a heart for small business, so I launched “Let Me Rephrase That Writing Services” and purchased TabithaDumas.com. I wrote more about small business, online marketing, personal development and blogging, with some faith and family mixed in.
In the summer of 2014, I felt like I was running two businesses: a beauty/image business…and a writing business.
Coach Erin helped me bring everything under one umbrella:
Image & Influence Strategist
with the tag-line
Elevate your image. Expand your influence.
I have not deviated from that (I will spend the rest of my days talking about image and influence) but I HAVE fine-tuned it.
Everything I talk about still points toward image and influence.
How you see yourself, how other perceive you, how you are showing UP in the world, the steps you are taking to pursue your God-size dream…that is my passion.
Here’s what’s different this year:
I had to make some tough decisions in order to make space to write–with my time, energy AND emotions.
So I am no longer offering one-on-one strategy sessions to assist people with their branding, social media, projects or blogs…
…except where it relates to color and image!
So how people work with me has changed. You can read more on my work with me page.
I’m offering color appointments, makeovers and monthly gatherings for women who want to live more colorful, confident and cohesive lives.
As for the blog…
Of course I’ll be talking about beauty and color sometimes to remind people that I DO still love working with women one on one. Playing with color, accessories and makeup is one of my favorite things!
But I’m also adding in a lot more stories, faith-related topics and encouragement for people who need less pressure…and more purpose.
I narrowed it down to this:
As an “image consultant,” I’m concerned just as much about your self-image as I am about your outward style.
I’m excited to explore both sides of the coin this year. You can read more about that in my post about That time I got ripped apart.
I hope you’ll stick with me so we can journey together. Certainly reach out to me if you have questions or suggestions.
