"Those who are certain of the outcome can afford to wait and wait without anxiety." -Amber Renae
If helping other people become the best version of themselves is what you desire to do, then being a stylist may be the right career for you. Starting out with no clients, no experience and no contacts can make it challenging for someone to get started in this career, that's why having a styling mentor is essential for your business. Many stylists won't share ALL their styling tips with you so when I discovered that Amber Renae, "The Style Engineer" created a styling course to help people grow their styling business, I was overjoyed. Even as an experienced stylist, I have learned essential tips throughout the course that have made me a better stylist.
Amber Renae is a style icon from Australia who is well versed in the fashion industry. She is the Fashion Editor of Australian Women's Health and Fitness Magazine and the resident stylist of Australia's largest media network, Southern Cross Austereo. Amber has also been recognised with her appointment to the board of the inaugural Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival and was selected to discuss ‘Innovation in Fashion’ with the Australian Government’s Parliamentary Secretary for Trade. In addition, she has styled celebrities such as Michelle Bridges, Firass Dirani and Deborah Mailman for red carpet events such as the Cannes Film Festival and the GQ Man Of The Year Awards.
Amber Renae is "The Style Engineer" because she was an engineer before she became a part of the fashion industry. If you're like Amber, then you know what it's like to have a good job but to always seek something more because your passion is in another career. She knew from when she was a little girl that she was destined to become a part of the fashion industry as she used to create pieces for her friends. So she eventually decided that it was time to live her dream.
Amber Renae moved on from design and followed the path of styling because it was the easiest thing for her to do. But little did she know that this was a true blessing because she later realized that the role of a stylist was more suited to her natural gifts and abilities as she loves helping people and changing people's lives.
Although there have been many challenges throughout her career, she has and continues to have many highlights. One of her biggest highlights have been educating other stylists through her online courses.. She loves knowing that she's making an impact on their lives as they're learning what they need to know about the styling industry. She admits that she cries when she gets positive feedback from her students.
At that moment, Amber realized that if she didn't understand what she needed to do to improve then no one else would. Amber understands that there's no need to be selfish with her knowledge and gifts, and therefore decided to create the course so people will know how to be a successful stylist instead of figuring most things out on their own. She's been told that people learn more from her course than some of the more expensive courses with other companies.
Amber Renae believes it is essential for a stylist to join online communities and to learn from experts in order to be successful. She says people need to find like-minded people who are going through the same things as you so you can learn together while learning from someone who is an expert in the business.
Amber Renae's future plans are to continue expanding her online academy to include an online dating profile program that will assist people with personal branding and copyrighting.
Amber Renae has brought her dreams to reality while helping others to do the same in the process. She is truly "The Style Engineer" as she develops solutions to help her clients and students reach their goals in life and I look forward to seeing how her style engineering continues to grow.
