Speaker 2 (02:23): Happy to have you. I'm so excited. We've been trying to record this episode for, it feels like forever, and I'm just so excited to hop in and share with the fellow fast trackers, all about soft magic. So thank you for having with Tara. I'm really, you know, I'm really honored to be here. I'm so excited. So let's just jump into it. So creative, like the first time I even met you, I'm like, you know, if you're not watching the video and you're listening to the podcast audio now, you know, she's got these beautiful, like colorful Legos that she constructs behind her and she's got lots of color pop and stuff like that. And Monica has even been such a source of inspiration for me to be like, Tara, you should add, you should add a color to your, your branding palette. And you know, maybe you should swap out that.
Speaker 2 (03:17): Blue's kind of like, you're more bright than that, you know? So she's been such a great resource for that. And I'm just so grateful because now I feel like with the kind of new brain colors, they're just, they feel more me and they feel more of a pop versus just the quote unquote me-too brand that we've talked about in the past. So thank you for all of that. I have to start this episode by saying that for sure. So she's remarkably creative and just understands color theory. Like no one I've ever met. So let's like, what got you into this? Like, you know, as a little girl where you just, the artist that was exploring color and things, and then you've just brought that forward in your business, but tell us how you got into this. Okay. So this is really, you know, before you were talking, I was quiet, but I was like, my smile was like, you know, from, from ear to ear.
Speaker 2 (04:09): Like, so first of all, very interesting question, you know, I, I'm not a color theory person at all. Like color theory is like, I actually remember in college, I was painting and I had a friend that he was like the best colorist, one of the best colors. And he always said, well, I always like, look at the color wheel to like, know what to do. And I was like, I never look up the color wheel. I never look at the color wheel. So color theory doesn't interest me so much the color wheel. I liked the way it looks, but it's also not, you know, my thing. So, you know, the whole, so you want to know about the color first, right? Not about the self magic, like the color. So the color is real interesting because if I'm tracing now back, there have been two or even three moments in my life that the color has decided to really come in, but it came in as a time capsule.
Speaker 2 (05:12): So not, you know, not immediately understood them, how important it's going to be, you know, not just in my life and in my business, in the way I live in, in, you know, in, in, into everything. So of course I was always an artist and of course I was always colorful. And of course I was always using a lot of colors. Like, that's like, you know, I never tried to do that. That was like my, my normal state. Yeah. And I even remember once it was in a, in a, in a sketching class, you know, when you sketch with like a charcoal or like a one pencil and I just, it was boring for me. So I just took a color pencil. And not because I couldn't, I couldn't stand it. The single color. It was one of those pencils, you know, that you turn it around and it has four different colors in one principal. I would like sketch with it. So as I'm sketching, the color changes as I'm sketching, it does having a single color, which is not doing it for me. Yeah. I have to tell everyone this story, like when you're like, what's your favorite color? Cause we were going to switch up sometimes on my colors for my branding. I'm like black.
Speaker 2 (06:21): And she's just like, oh yeah. I was like probably vividly bringing you back to the charcoal. Maybe, maybe, but not for long, not for black too, by the way. So one memory I got, and again, I backtrack this. Okay. Like I backtrack, I backtraced these. So I was in fifth grade and I had to read, it was in an essay class and we had to read around, you know, se new. Remember I wrote something, I really remember, you know, my shiny shoes. Like I was really, you know, looking down at my shoes. I was really like, kind of like very excited to read my thing. I started reading and after a few sentences, my teacher like, just cut me, says color your voice.
Speaker 2 (07:09): And I remember he was like, I never heard this, you know, this sentence before I, you know, I, I, I didn't know what it mean, you know, but I knew what to do with it. Like I got even, you know, I got it and I applied it on the spot, even though it was a completely new concept. Like I never heard of it. No one explained to me, why is the color of your voice? You know? So now that I'm thinking about it, that was like really something because now when, and that's why I'm telling you that I'm not the color theory girl. Okay. Because to me to work your color and to color your voice have nothing to do with actual color. And this is like one of the thing that I'm, I mean, I am also colorful. Like I create in actual colors, but to me to be colorful, to live colourful to color, voice, have nothing to do with, you know, the color theory of the universe, if, if you know, so, you know, so that was like one thing.
Speaker 2 (08:08): And then in college I was in art history class and suddenly that, that was like really big. Okay. Because the color of your voice, I forgot all about it. And later years later, we'll just few years ago it came up. But what I'm telling you now is like, you know, when you hear something, you don't think it's like, you don't know what to do with it, but you know, it's significant. I remember when I heard it, I knew it was significant. And she went like this. She said, Y doff red rose, black Crow. Okay. And you know, it was like one of those cryptic messages, you know, that, you know, like the, how you go, that them artificial intelligence that you have to say those words in the exact way to unlock something. Right. And it was really like, like a code. It was like a code.
Speaker 2 (09:11): And I remembered it and I put it in there. Like only like 16 years later, I actually created all my, my framework around that thing. Wow. This three colors, the white, red, and black, and these, they're not my favorite colors by the way. And you know, I, I actually, I, I I talked to this teacher last year. I think it was already COVID days. I trace her and I called her and I, and I told her everything I was doing. And I told her how this thing inspired me. And she, and she told me that this thing exists that you sometimes have, like, when you, you know, that this, this is you're going to come back to this, she had a name for that. Yeah. That's when I say that, I was like, really? So, so this is my, my color thing. And then my, my art is very colorful.
Speaker 2 (09:59): I created the [inaudible] for the artists in each of us. That is, I think, most colorful deck and all my, you know, so yeah. I leave color, I breathe color, but it's, it's really not about having the palette. Like it's not strategy around it. Right. It's just, you like it, like you can, you're just, I think some people are just completely gifted and being able to see something that goes, and it's beautiful, just like an artist, you know, which is why this and this people who don't have an eye for that, but maybe we have a passion for business coaching or life coaching or copywriting people. Like you are able to really look at it and go, yeah, this is you. Like, you can almost, it's just a gift, you know? And I think that's beautiful. Okay. I'll tell you something about that. First of all, yeah.
Speaker 2 (10:51): You know, it's like someone that writes really well, you know, they can tell you, you know, it's, there's definitely a talent here, you know, that's, I think it's obvious, but th but the think that the thing really is, you know, you're saying there's no strategy in it for me, but I have now developed a strategy and I have developed a process so I can communicate it to my clients because I see so many people have color palettes that, you know, they got them from a talented designer, but they don't really reflect. And also maybe there were you yesterday, but there are not you now. And, and there is by now, I have developed processes to actually understand what is the next step in your revolution. And that also reflects in your colors. Okay. And, and actually, you know, it's, it's like a, it's like a statement it's like a sign, you know, like when you put a sign to like a restaurant, you say now open, right.
Speaker 2 (11:52): So that sign is not just the sign. It reflects everything in the back end. Right. But now it's open. So when you're doing this, change the shift in your colors, even if it's a refresh and not the whole thing, it's, it's, it's totally like making that statement off. You know what, now I moved and now evolving, which we should all evolve is the world, the world of idea you know, evolve is the word. And this is something that I really, my system is about. You just said it, you know, th you know, not working exactly. Again, I'm about to launch my own show and evolving is the thing. And let me, you know, I'll tell you a role with myself for a second. Okay. Is that okay? I rolled with myself. So I was just thinking the other day, you know, but, you know, we all want to be our next self and our best self.
Speaker 2 (12:49): And, and I, I'm not so happy with this. I'm not so happy with this notion. Because one of the things that happened to me really recently is that I realized I don't want to look back and, and feeling nostalgic about my youth, you know, eh, feeling nostalgic about my more youthful looks okay. Or feeling nostalgic about some success in, you know, I think evolution is really the way to look, especially as for women that we do change no matter what we do, we age, no matter what we do, our, our, you know, our body changes or face changes, everything is changing. And I think that really accepting the volution and bringing really the present moment, eh, of having radical self-acceptance in the seldom in that moment, and really having the volution as the goal and not, not having like a goal. I love that.
Speaker 2 (13:52): I mean, I haven't been pollution. Yeah. Evolution. When you say that, I, it, it, for me, it unlocks my belief that I had, which was, I've spent 10 to $15,000 on this brand, if not more right than I had before. And then she's like, I was just thinking, maybe you should add orange to your color palette. And I was like, ah, this is my system. I've spent so much money. And I start going at a business perspective instead of going wait, like I need to evolve. I wear my whole 90% of my closet is black. Right. Is it the worst thing in the world? If I add in some color, like, no, this is kind of like where we want to be post COVID and like, kind of moving into that fresh look and whatnot. And you know, and all my stuff was very like vintage airline colors.
Speaker 2 (14:46): And I'm like, you know, what, like, why do I have to go with a vintage airline kind of color scheme? Why can't I go with, if I were to create an airline, what would it be? And it would be fresh and modern and all that stuff. So I love the idea of evolution and all of us looking forward to what we have instead of trying to be a younger version of ourself. Right. That's beautiful. Well, the younger version of ourselves is, you know, and, you know, I just had a big birthday, you know, I just turned 50 and I know many people, you know, I may look a little younger, so, you know, it's not clear that I'm 50. And, and then I, even at the beginning, I felt not to say that I was like, no, nobody needs to know that I'm 50. It literally looked like 28.
Speaker 2 (15:35): Okay. But you know what I realized just now that you know what, actually now I see my age, not as my problem. I started seeing my age as my asset, and I actually really want, I said, you know, I want to crusade for the Crohn's now. Okay. And you know, and like your magic, like yourself magic doesn't need to have an expiration date. Absolutely. Okay. Like, and, and, and you see everything, you see all the models and you see all the Instagram feeds and you see all the amazing bodies and you see, and you see, and at some point, you know, like, so what I have to feel that now I can't play the game because I'm 50, you know, when I think now, or for the women that are inspiring me the most, you know, who they are, are the ones that are the most wrinkled, like really wrinkles, you know, the ones that are, you know, I'm talking about Iris Apfel and, you know what's the lesson that they're like a hundred and they're still kicking it.
Speaker 2 (16:41): You know, like they're juicy, there's juicy, it's your decision to keep being juicy and not, and you know, how are you going to be juicy? You just have to have curiosity about yourself. You know, when you give, having curiosity about yourself, you don't fate. And so starting to feel bad that we're all there. No, we're just have to talk surely use that and find even ways to, and also to bring, to bring other women that are, you know, like are not in their twenties anymore to just, I don't want, I really don't want to change to chase my youth. And I don't want to hang on to it anymore. You know, I want to allow myself to, to evolve. And every time I'm going to have a different focus, look, I wasn't two weeks ago, last week, I w this thing was not in me.
Speaker 2 (17:33): I wasn't talking about that. Something happened and it made the shift. So you think are not going to be more shifts down the road. Do you think I'm done? No. Like, obviously I'm going to, right. So I think embracing it and also building a brand that can go through you through this evolution, you know, I teach women how to take, you know, their own self portraits and their own brand photos. And the beauty is exactly what you said before. When someone goes and has, you know, offensive photo shoot, then I see them, you know, they spend like 10 grand on that. Then I see them use those pictures for years to come because they paid so much money. Okay. The pictures aren't amazing. Fine, but they use them again and again, and again, because they pay, they have to like justify, right.
Speaker 2 (18:21): They have to justify them and, you know, they look good. So, so then they're like keeping that, you know, now they're like three or five years older, so they prefer how they look then. So let's make, let's squeeze that image a little more. Okay. Let's get something more out of it. And then they're losing the opportunity to express themselves now and see what's coming up for them. Now, you know, with myself, Tajik ladies, like one of the big things we're doing is the birthday shoot handling. The last few years, I've been doing a big deal around my breakfast food, and it's such a self celebration, you know, and every time I have a new idea and a new thing, and like, I allow myself to just leave with my fantasies and I'm not locked to that big thing I did then, and I want to relieve it and, you know, bring it back and make it last longer.
Speaker 2 (19:11): So that's brilliant. Yeah. That's a, that's a really cool idea. Cause that's when we're, we really recognize where we've came at least in the last year. Right. Cause it always feels like yesterday it was just my birthday. Like, and that was here, you know, these years are going fast and you know, and I think that's a really cool thing to do for yourself. And you know, one thing that I've noticed quite a bit is when people, especially like an Instagram feed or they're so perfectly brand curated down to the high-end images and, you know, and that used to be a large part of my brand too. It was like, you know high end private jet, blah, blah, blah. But then, you know, went through COVID and it's like, the reality is it's not wearing the black dresses with 8 million shell broaches. Like I used to, I still will wear them, but like, you know, I'm wearing leggings and all that kind of stuff.
Speaker 2 (20:05): And it becomes a more, it just has felt more casual for me. And that business can be casual and it can still be serious. So that's kind of been my own evolution in the last year is my husband masterminds with my clients. I'm like, come as you are, wear your pajamas. I am clear, you are a smart woman. And you know, when you need to dress up, if you're going to a business dinner or a speaking engagement, versus when you can just be yourself, because that's where the magic happens, right. Is like, when you're just casually yourself, you know, so, well, this has got to both be yourself. There both be yourself. You know? I mean, I like dressing up. You, I'm not, this is what I say. You know, that your most authentic identity is your most creative identity. And actually when you do dress up, but I think what COVID did, you know, it was a reality check.
Speaker 2 (20:58): How all of us, you know, there's one thing I appreciate this horrible thing is that it, it, it brought every human to zero, but it's the same zero. It's not exactly zero. It just doesn't matter who you are, where you live. What's your color, how much money you have, what's your assets? What your education level, what is your values? What are your ethics? What is your, your personality doesn't matter? You know, there's nothing, everybody was affected. Everybody was affected in this way or another. And, and, and I think this was also, I think it allowed a lot of business owners to really revisit, you know, what is the facade? You know, that, that I, is it my creativity speaking? Is it my self expression? Or is it the facade? I think this is what, you know, because I think it's okay that you wear your Chanel brushes, you know, and he's okay.
Speaker 2 (21:53): You like your vintage, the theme and it's, I think it's great. But how long are you holding onto it and how are you evolving with what really happened? You know, I think COVID really forced us to really recreate ourselves, you know, whether we want it or not. You know, so many people were even used to have ongoing photo shoots or suddenly no photographer, no oxygen photographer and the end, they have no reason to dress up either. You know? So, so this, this new reality emerged, but you can still find a way to be relevant and to stand out and to really celebrate yourself. I'm thinking there's also something to be said about being relatable, right? It's like, there's almost like a tone deafness. I think you have a couple of, you know, brand personalities that I know, and it's like, they never stopped with the high end, this and that.
Speaker 2 (22:45): And it's like, at what point is it you're just disconnected from your audience that are like, why is she still wearing it down? Or why is she, you know? And it's like this just put a little tone, deaf, like with what was going on in the world. So yeah. That let's segue into self magic, you know, let's hear it. Like, what does self magic mean to you? Okay. Okay. Okay. So first of all, self magic is, is two things. Okay. So one it's, it's a, it's a resource. That's what I say to resource. It's this feeling of just, oh, all. Oh, to write for Nancy drive a w E. Okay. Oh, oh, oh, oh yeah. Yeah. When you do something and you just have that self surprise. Okay. Okay. And anything can happen in a positive of course, you know, self and, and I think we all have it.
Speaker 2 (23:48): We have, we have all experienced it in different ways, not just about branding and business. Okay. Just when you have that. Oh my God. Like, did I just do that? You know, did, did that just came out of my mouth? Did I just create bad? You know, is that me right? This like, wow. So it's not the self surprise. So that's one thing, the resource. And then it's my method, my system, my whole belief mom, and actually my lifestyle. And, you know, so the self logic, it starts, I, you know, I, I started, I needed pictures on my website and I didn't know what my brand was. And I didn't know what to ask for. Even if I hired a photographer, but you know, I didn't also want to hire one because I didn't know what I wanted. So if I hired one, it felt like, what am I gonna, you know, it was like this, no one thing.
Speaker 2 (24:42): So started taking my own photographs and then I got better read it. And then I developed a process. So it's really when you're taking your own pictures. Okay. And the metric of success is, is exactly that self surprise. So I always tell my clients, unless you're self surprised you don't stop. Okay. You keep your session going, you know, until you get to that point. And this is when your self magic is released, this is when has been revealed. Because when you looking to get surprised, it means you, if you're not executing it, no brainstorming will help you. You want sell surprise. You don't brainstorm it. You don't strategize it. You don't execute it. You have to plate. And to trust, to trust, that's going to come and really cast your magic. You know, like, I, I totally feel that act, you know, like you have like your magic wand.
Speaker 2 (25:44): You're like, you're, you're like, you're saying, okay, this is where it's going to happen. Okay. Like if you imagine that, you know that the space, the scramble to do it, and I'm casting my magic and then you come alive in a way that you surprise yourself. And this is how it gets, you know, my kinds of decorative pictures. And when this is happening, this is the magic. Okay. So your, your evolving self is showing up your next selfie, showing up. Other messages are showing up your creative self. Your most authentic self are showing up. And again, because you can strategize, you can brainstorm and you're not executing. Okay. So it works on a completely different other level of, of really in a way, you know, some people will say you're downloading it. Okay. You know, it's, it's, it's like a download of your, of your visual self.
Speaker 2 (26:42): So this is for me, self magic. And I, and I, and what I'm doing now is that I discovered, you know, it's not just to take the pictures, but I'm using this exact method of extracting your visual, your visuals as a brand building methodology. So instead of asking, who's your ideal client, you know, what are your stand, you know, or why does it concept, you know, you, you want your brand to be the pirate you want your brand to be, I don't know the singing bird. You want your brow, your brand to be the golden unicorn. You know, you want your brand to be, you know, the silver pilot, what you, you know, no, we don't do that. We don't choose a concept. Okay. I work with, you know, we work with one color at a time, as I say, and, and we just let your, your brand and your authentic creative self just emerge.
Speaker 2 (27:39): And so, so, so my clients are creating a bank of a bank of images that totally full of the personality totally matches their message, even if they don't know yet, or their message is that's the thing. They actually get insights about their message through those pictures. Okay. And then, then they build, you build your brand around that. So you have, you have visual proof visual assets. Okay. And you also have that energy that is full of life and is facing forward and makes you more visible and just allows you to it's. It doesn't have that control thing because I set the metric of success for self magic surprise. And what I love about what you do is, you know, most people would go to a brand strategist. They do the extraction of who do you want to track this and that. And then they create like this beautiful brand in a box.
Speaker 2 (28:38): Right. And they're just, and when my whole, in my past, it was like, here's your brand system just don't deviate. It don't confuse your customer, you know? And then, but what you do is you take such a different, I would say, even a more organic approach, right? It's like when you create the bank of images, then it's like, you know, you can write the copy and then the brand emerges from that. But then what's really cool is what you're creating is a sustainable brand. And I use that word because it's like, sometimes the hardest part is when you have this like perfectly curated brand, it's like keeping up with it, but you're giving women the confidence to go and create their bank. And then when they run through their bank, it's like, okay, go do it again. Right. And it's like, you'll always have fresh content versus recycling these pictures from 10 years.
Speaker 2 (29:28): So, I mean, it's just a totally different approach to get even a better result, which I think is fantastic. So Tony, you just said two words that are exactly, you know, the words I also use, you said organic and other word is fluid and the other word is sustainable. Like these are, these are my words. And by the way, first of all, you never run out of pictures. It doesn't happen to you. And I really don't run out of pictures that there is such joy in creating more and new ones. So I create more for the sake of my self care and the sake of myself expression. Okay. But then I can also go back and mix and match. So sometimes actually I can bring back a picture from five years ago because something in there, something in the color or something in the theme, you know, but really my bank is really, you know, I'm really not short of photos, that's for sure. But it's so, so you can, you're doing this mix and match. And, but I think that the idea of keep doing them, first of all, I, you know, one of my clients said, you know, it becomes, you become addicted to it, you know, because it's really a place, you know, to me, the space to be, it's really a place to breathe. And really when I need some, some nurturing, when I really w you know, you know, business is not always ease and ease with ease and fun and ease and flow.
Speaker 2 (31:05): Yeah. So actually when I'm in those, you know, not so amazing places, this is what I do. And I do it for me and my business. Okay. So I just go and I do another photo shoot. It gives me, honestly, the photos at this point are like the least, I like the bonus of the bond. Like the bonds. It gives me the confidence. It gives me this attention to myself. It gives me this possibility, you know, of self celebration. And really, it gives me attention and care and also reflection that I don't get anywhere else. When I look, when I do my photo shoot with myself, first of all, it's solo. Okay. I don't have that kind of time with myself in any other configuration. It's not like when I'm in the shower, it's not like when I'm having a massage, it's not like when I'm reading a book, it's also not even when I'm painting or creating. Like, it's not, it's much more intimate. It's, it's reflective. And I love that there was this immediate result, you know, of the photo. And then I look at the photos and I decode them also, you know, like I see, wow, what am I getting here? You know? And I, all the done get insights and messages and, you know, work with my clients. And they're always like, like dislikes, Photoshop is so spot on. I'm like, this is magic. How does it happen? You know, how does it happen?
Speaker 2 (32:37): Yeah. And I think yeah, I think that's, and that's just an, a beautiful way for women entrepreneurs to like come forward, because you also stand out. I mean, if you want to see an amazing example, and I love saying this because I also, you know, Monica has helped me. I'm like work with her on the coaching side, but it's like, when you have a client who you can say, I want to refer her, go look at her Instagram feed and right there, you're going to see exactly what you create for yourself. It stands out is different. It's very intimate. It feels just yeah, I mean, it's, there is that magic to it. And you could almost not almost tell, but like, you know, I know some of the other women she's worked with and their whole, you know, feed and website evolution and all this kind of stuff, too, all the imagery and visuals, they create, they have this Monica feel to them that does feel so much more intimate.
Speaker 2 (33:37): And, you know, and you just felt like, you know, them more, which isn't that what we want and all the people that we've worked with. So, you know, and, you know, to wrap up here, I have a couple of questions left for you. The first one is how, how can people work with you? Like, what's it, you know, first, how can they get in touch with you? And then what's like your main thing that you provide for people. So that if they're like, yeah, I'm ready to step out of my comfort, uncomfortable zone of putting myself out there and get some self magic for me. What does that look like for the average woman that's listening right now? All right. So first of all, I have a group program which is called the self magic society. And this is it's an an eight week program, but I delivered in, you know, 12 weeks.
Speaker 2 (34:25): So there is a little bit more time and we are doing self magic. And we do it one color at a time. So I'm integrating inside there mainly to it's, it's really a hybrid of a program it's training, coaching, and implementation in, in a, in a small community. So I have two main trainings that go there. One is the salt magic portraits, and the other one is what I called the color called quest. And this is a one color at a time, which is a whole other thing. We didn't even patch it today here, by the way. So there's a whole other thing, and this is what really allows you to unlock different sides of yourself. So you're not just smiling and doing the usual selfie thing you're really going into and allowed them to use the word intimate. Do you know, it's actually something I never thought of that way.
Speaker 2 (35:15): Although intimacy is one of my core values, by the way, I wasn't aware that this comes across. So I think it's fascinating that you say it like that. And thank you for, thank you for this. For me, I'm like, I feel like I'm getting a sneak peek into their world, or, you know, like I'm always so fascinated that, you know, the image is just like, I'm thinking of this one you did in your challenge of this one woman who I've known and, you know, whether we're on online events or I've been in, in person events. And when I saw her self portrait, it was the, you know, like her laying down and just this beautiful smile. And it was so useful that I have never seen her in that light. And I was like, oh my, like, this is, this is something. And it really was that magic piece.
Speaker 2 (36:02): So I've seen firsthand all of this working. So the self magic societies, so the self Mexican society. Yeah. It's definitely an amazing, and you know, the women there, you know, I talk with Mahnomen and she said, you know, it's not, I'm not just looking forward to see my, my next pictures. I want to see the others. She said the others, it was formation to see what the others is like, look, I'm saying this and I have goosebumps anyway. So that's one way. And then I have my one one-on-one you know, practice, which is kind of different. We kind of do the same thing, but we're going much deeper. And the whole thing with the colors, we're actually working on this together, and we're going really deep on the clients that did this is like therapy. Okay. Right. So, yeah, but again, we're, we're creating a health and create, you know, their never ending bank.
Speaker 2 (36:54): And then we're also like taking more also into the branding. So it's more extended time in the society where mainly, you know, doing this, this first this first thing. And I, you know, I spy, as I say, there will be like a next level of like a mastery think after the society that we really take everything we did. And we were rapid engaged in, you know, cohesive brand. So really talking the branding piece. Yeah. Well, how many people before I ask my final question, people get in touch with you. If they're like, I've got to check out this woman, I heard Monica Cleo, Saki, and they're like, how do you even spell it? Like they go to stalk you.
Speaker 2 (37:38): Yeah. I know this felling thing. Well, I'm about to have no, you know, and you show what's going to be called the self magic show, but I also, you know, if, if they see my name in your notes, which is, yeah, definitely hard to spell because money goes with a C and a K and you know, CLIA was CLA oh. And Saki is without, okay. I know, I know it's a mouthful to even, I don't expect anybody to dispel. Right. But anyway, it's, it's I have on my website and I'm on Instagram and and yeah, that's, that's how you can find me her fandom. Yeah. And, you know, I work with people that I read. They're also, I mean, I have a whole list of the kind of people that work, but it's also for those that are starting and they want to really discover their brand.
Speaker 2 (38:22): It's also for people who want to like, you know, heal their in disability who have a really hard time becoming visible people. I, I, you know, I have really helped them to really, really crushed some, some blocks there. But, but it's also with people, you know, the work to rebrand, that's already out there visible doing things, but they feel that they need some change. And, and also, you know, sometimes the corporate people that they've been there, their system is programmed in a very different way. And they need really cold, new configuration of coming online and what it means to be authentic without getting naked, you know, without right. Feeling good, like find a way to represent yourself and really taking charge of your image, you know, in, in a new way, in an organic fluid and sustainable way. That's definitely, I love it. So go visit her website.
Speaker 2 (39:17): Monica, M O N I C K a Clio C L I O Saki S a K K i.com and also on Instagram. She's fantastic. So, and her posts are some thoughtful and curated. Like, you'll love it. Just go, just go follow her on Instagram for sure. And then as far as the last question, I always ask everyone, like the name of the podcast is the fast track woman. What is your number one piece of advice that you've learned that you want to share with all other women entrepreneurs about when it comes to wanting to get to success faster? What is some insight you've learned that you would like to share with them? Okay. Okay. Okay. Let me think for one second. You're getting me off guard here because you know, I had, it'll be that much more impactful, I guess. I guess it will look there.
Speaker 2 (40:14): There is one thing that I always say, I was always saying, you know, that I want that on my grave. So, and the thing is a, you create creative. So just really go and create your thing. Don't, you know, there is a lot of things in your business you want to delegate. I know, and I know I'm not delegating enough. That's like minus thing, but taking charge of your image and really getting creative with your brand and being really being really the head creative director of your brand, be a really the creator, you know, be your own creator. I think this is not just to create fast success. This is to create the success that you'll feel aligned with. And you'll be happy, happy to be there. You know, like, because when you're creating yourself, when you're doing things that create you and you are in charge of that, you decide how you're going to represent yourself.
Speaker 2 (41:14): You know, you don't follow the blueprint, you create the blueprint. Okay. You can go wrong. You can't go wrong. You're you're going, you're going, you're, you're getting to the core of, of who you, who you are. You know? And I always say that, you know, it's like who you are, who you are not. And then more of who you are. Okay. So only you can achieve more of who you are. No one else can shape more of who you are, but yourself, you know, it's good. That's really good. So that's it. And you know that everyone has this like fear of being like, well, they're gonna steal my stuff or wouldn't they copy me when you are truly who you are and you make your own self magic. It's impossible to anyone else to recreate it. Which is, I mean, can you put a price on that? No, that's just beautiful. So yeah, your next spot is just crash.
