What's Your Style Statement?

Meet a workbook designed to shake you out of the things you've settled on (career, fashion, friends, home, etc.) and help you focus your intentions on what is truly right for your unique life. Is there any more powerful choice than to be authentic in every move you make?

You know the choices that you've made that bring you joy? Becoming friends with the right person, ditching a job that didn't fit, finding the dress that was exactly "you", art that grabs you by the eyelashes and won't let go? Take the time to discover your Style Statement and you'll find yourself making a lot more of those perfect choices. In Style Statement: Live By Your Own Design, you can take a profoundly fun journey to find the two words that represent who you are!

At first blush, it may sound over simplistic, self-absorbed, pretentious... but keep an open mind. I've started applying it to my life and already it's helping me to not only make wiser buying decisions but also to understand why I love what I do. There's also the added bonus of finding a newfound appreciation for yourself and what makes you tick.

Journeying through the many thought-provoking questionnaires and examples of others who've found their Style Statement, I found myself surprised by my own answers. I must have forgotten how much I yearn to travel, love sharing information, and want to wear dresses. (Dresses? Me? Really?).

The more true to your desires you are, the better able you are to fully love your life and make empowered choices. This is so incredibly important both for your business life (Seriously, why spend the majority of your waking hours doing something you don't find fulfilling? No excuses!) and for your personal life. It's important to be the fully realized version of yourself, especially if you have sweet impressionable children learning from your every move.

The book also has a "Lifestyle Map" which can be very helpful in keeping your goals balanced when putting together a visualization board/ Treasure Map. (We'll be discussing Treasure Maps in March).

I highly recommend working through the Statement slowly and mindfully. Relax and let it come naturally for the best result. Also, don't worry about what others think about your style statement. It only has to please you.

I enjoyed this book so much I gave it to all my girls for Christmas. Now we'd like to gift you with your own copy! We'll be randomly drawing one follower on January 15th. If you'd like to be included in the drawing please join our followers. We'll be doing a different giveaway each month!

Also available for purchase in our Amazon store.

(If you're curious, my style statement is Designed Celebration, and Dani's is Magical Visionary.)

I completely adored this work book and could not put it down. It made me focus in on the things I love in life and the things I could do without. It's so thought provoking and will have you rethinking large parts of your life. Everyone must have this!
