Ever since she could remember, Charissa has always wanted to help women and build their confidence. She developed workshops for women on how to face their fears, help run workshops at the women’s prison in Perryville, styled women in fashion shows, and became a Certified Life Coach through the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts in Tempe. Her objective is to let women know that they are beautiful and worthy. Through her work as an image consultant for Dress for Success Phoenix and her own consulting/shopping business, Charissa has had the opportunity to style hundreds of women all of ages for their careers. She feels that being a part of their journey has been such an inspiration. What makes her unique is that she works with women who want to up-level their career and image by dressing them in luxury brands at bargain prices, all through second hand stores. Her objective is to teach her clients how to develop the same eye that she has and save tons of money on their wardrobe. As Charissa says, “You don’t have to spend a million dollars to look like a million dollars.”
Before networking starts, before you open your mouth and say “Hello my name is…” You have already been looked over and a judgement has been place on you. That first impression starts before the event happens, before that conversation starts, before that initial connection. Dressing appropriately, putting the effort into how you look and present yourself is so important because you are a walking talking build-board of your personal brand. As women, we do want to be remembered for that product we are selling or the service we are providing, however if you aren’t dressed the part, you will be remembered by how you looked. If what you do doesn’t match the way you look then how do you change that? This workshop is for you! What you will learn is what to wear vs what not to wear in business and what you can do to make that killer first impression. For the full hour there will be a power point presentation, photos, stories, and also tips/tricks on how you can level up your wardrobe.
