I was playing with my phone doing some extremely “important” networking on Facebook while clinging to my drug of choice: a soothing grandmother of Cappuccino at The Procrastination Café.
It was Friday. My one day off work. My free day to shoot videos to grow my business, and here I was wasting time. Maybe I should create a pretty infographic about taking action. Just to get into the right mindset.
Filming those perfect fashion videos had turned out to be a lot of work.
I had to set up lights and camera in my tiny living room, scare my family away, and then work like a maniac to finish before they got back. It took me hours to cover up my wrinkles and tame that naughty little poodle on top of my head that poses as hair.
And don’t get me started on technology. We all believe in positive psychology right? Deep breaths everyone. I’ll admit I still don’t understand my camera. What the hell is ISO? Or IOS for that matter.
God, I need another coffee! Triple espresso.
I’ll just quickly pop into a couple of stores before I go home to work. I’m a stylist after all. It’s simply my duty to queen and country to get some retail therapy even if I live in a Fashion Wasteland.
Then I saw it in a window.
Was it a mirage?
Was I so high on caffeine and business guilt that my mind was playing tricks on me?
You know what I mean ladies. It’s just like being struck by lightning when you lay your eyes on Mr. Right.
THE DRESS is the magic wand that transforms your body and mind and turns you into Michelle Obama. (Maybe it can even transform your husband. Mmm. Have to try that.)
This gorgeous number was begging to be recorded on video. Leaving it hanging there would be a crime worse than abandoning an adorable puppy that fell in love with you at the shelter. You can’t do that. Just look at it!
Energized by the vibrant color of the dress (and the fact that it made me look much better than I do naked,) I was fired up and ready for action. All the way home I was fantasizing about how wonderful the dress would look on camera and how amazing the video would turn out.
The amazing energy of THAT PERFECT DRESS is something we all can use!
So get some gorgeous clothes that are begging to be shown off and get out there to promote your business. Looking and feeling like a million bucks will inspire you to get your photos done, make a video, or go to a networking event.
Let’s go shopping!
