Next Chapter Podcast Episode 08: Nicola Wise-Sturt – Your Visual Style


Your Visual Style, your Personal Brand, is a direct reflection of what’s going on inside of you and what stage of your journey you are on. Thus, aspects of your style will ebb and flow, flux and change as you move through life, as you embark on a next chapter.

Nicola and I discuss how she is now in her 3rd or 4th book as opposed to chapter! A long and winding path with many challenges along the way, a journey that many of us can readily relate too.

She shares valuable tips and insights about how to stay connected and true to your own style along the way as you evolve in your own business and life so that you own Visual Style is consistently and authentically communicating the authentic core of you – so important when you are wanting to attract clients to you who resonate with your style.

So much goodness in this Episode that will deepen your understanding on authentic brand building – you really need to hear it! But here are s few small highlight points

  • The images you choose are such an important piece of the feeling and tone you exude
  • Developing your own Personal Visual Style Statement is crucial to consistency with your brand expansion
  • Your emotions are your very best guide to style – quite simply, what do you love? What appeals to you?
  • Personal Pinterest Boards are a fabulous way to becoming aware of your style – look for the visual links

    Completely enlightening! I have been on my own journey and fumbling along in a similar way to find my own style for my business. (And going around in circles!) This podcast was completely what I am about and I now feel I have a base to refer and spring from.
    Funny how things happen and what you need in your life just appears!
    Thank you.
