CONSULT OTHERS TO SCALE UP YOUR ELITE BUSINESS
As you scale up your business, you need a trusted business mentor who can guide and support you. For instance, Jen Auh tells a personal story in her first book STYiLES that shows a great example of the importance of consulting others to develop a successful business and grow professionally:
A former boss has been my mentor for over two decades. To this day, when I need advice, I call her up. The wisdom she shares is invaluable because of the many years she has spent in the business world. She knows me personally and understands my professional needs.
My mentor is also the person who put me in touch with my first life coach. At the time, I was considering the idea of starting my own business. I liked the idea of helping people look better, but I didn’t know where to start.
Consulting a life coach was a brilliant idea. It was great to have a professional I could talk to about my future. She helped me navigate my thoughts as I considered the idea of venturing into a full-time business. Because of her, I was able to prioritize and get things done right.
Jen Auh shares more tips and advice on how to build an elite image consulting business in her first book, from defining your market fit to communicating well with clients. The book is #1 International Bestseller, so get your copy and learn more about the world of elite image consulting.
