Is This You?

The Body Brand with Carrie Montgomery

There’s something that no one tells you about when you’re growing a successful brand and business.

The businesses that get noticed and stand the test of time have this one thing in common… they all have a solid brand (message, personality, mission, image) at their core.

After 2010, you may have noticed a few public brands making a shift to PERSONAL BRANDS like crazysexycancer.com, which turned into kriscarr.com, or whitehottruth.com, which became daniellelaporte.com.  

Both of these woman saw the value of who they were and their ability to produce a more diverse body of work when they claimed personal ownership of their business and stepped into the spotlight.

Both women chose to OWN THEIR NAME.  

This step towards personal ownership has given them the ability to expand their offerings as they grow and evolve in the seasons of their own lives.

Hey, styles change. Sometimes orange is the new black, and sometimes pink is the new gold!

You gotta learn to roll with it.

But, this shift in identity takes time and money.  

Building a business is the real-deal facts of life. The hard work pays off in spades only after you’ve laid a solid foundation.  

A business that looks like a fast rise isn’t. The owner laid a firm foundation brick by brick for years prior to the visible success you see. Marie Forleo didn’t become Marie Forleo overnight. The behind-the-scenes work is often overlooked because, well, the idea of a fast rise feels good.

Creating success that’s personally and professionally fulfilling is no small feat.

Needless to say, the identity of who you are and how the world perceives you is incredibly important. It requires consciously creating a connection between who you are in your private life and who you are in public. (You don't have to share everything about your personal life to have a successful brand. I'm talking about getting into alignment of what you stand for and having integrity here.)

A client came to me, she had her first $100K year.  That’s a big deal to grow your business to that volume, but she had bigger dreams.  She wanted to achieve high 6-figures, and soon after hit the 7-figure mark.

Growing your biz takes focus, dedication, and A VISION.  She knew she could not hold the whole container herself without SUPPORT. There are so many buckets of responsibility. And no one wants BLOCKS to get in the way or our success.  These are body, mind and soul blocks that hold you back from actualizing your dream.

So, we committed to her success from the inside out and the outside in. We did multiple shoots to express her image and the power of her brand. And, yes, she had doubts, fears, and challenges looking at herself. We used The Body Brand process and The Somatic Dressing Method™️ to create her million dollar shoot. (We didn’t spend a mill, but the energy of 7-figures was there).

Tears streamed down her face when dresses were too big (realizing her body image was off). We laughed as we curated the look for her timeless brand. There were moments of realizing her true power to go out there and call in a tribe of loving, amazing clients.

I love to help women look good and feel good. But more importantly, I love to teach women to honor themselves exactly where they are, meet their own needs, and rise to meet their next great success with ease and grace.

It doesn’t mean floating through life like a flower. It means getting real with where you’re at, what is happening, and what you need to do to rise up.

Did you know that you can do all that and more with clothes?

It’s true. Dressing yourself based on how you want to feel is one of the easiest ways to rise to your success, find your true voice, and embody your confidence by just being yourself.

I often find clients stuck in conflict, confusion, or indecision, burning their brains with why they don't know what the next step in business or life is. It becomes debilitating.

I typically find them alone at home behind the computer, looking at social media and comparing themselves to other successful women out there rocking their brands. They’re wondering why the hell they aren’t getting more clients and are desperately waiting for their next big idea to come.

They're looking for their true voice and have no idea how to find it.

Sound like you?

  • If you’re ready to make more money

  • If you’re ready to step into your true power

  • If you’re ready to align your voice, your body, and your business

  • If you’re ready to confidently step out onstage to magnetize your dream clients

I have the solution for you. It involves a deep dive into your body, your soul, and your business.  

THE BODY BRAND is truly about aligning your brand with your body and embodying your true style.

THE BODY BRAND is a customized system that will help you discover your true style and create an image that magnetizes your dream clients.

You’ll uplevel your income, find your edge, and find your confident aligned voice while still building a dreamy business or lifestyle that your clients aspire to mirror.

Lastly, you’ll learn how to dress yourself with UNSTOPPABLE CONFIDENCE so that you can show up for yourself and your audience in the most authentic and powerful way.

If I told you that in 6 months, you could completely transform how you feel about your body, create more income, and confidently step into a business that honors and serves you and the world, would you believe me?? It’s doable. I’ve seen it happen over and over again with my clients in with my signature BODY BRAND process.

If you’re interested, I would love for you to book a discovery call so we can talk through THE BODY BRAND to see if it’s the right fit for you.  

There are only 4 spots available right now for this work. And since these will be the last opportunities to work with me 1:1 this year, they’ll go fast.

Evolution of Style

You might have guessed this already, but everyone has a different style. No two styles are alike.

And you might be like… ”Carrie, I have no idea what my style is!” (hair raising scream) It’s OK. Seriously, we’ve all been there. I know with all my global moves from cities, to countryside, to islands, to the desert, I have had my fair share of identity (aka STYLE) shifts.

You make choices that resonate with you in your environment. It’s called Bio Individuality or your own Sass! BUT when you start to step out of your arena and are growing into a new space, be it work, a new business venture, or maybe even just taking time off, a new identity arises.

You think,” WTF does that look like?”

How about asking yourself what does that FEEL like?

Do I need soft and cozy? (more athleisure)

Do I need structure and routine? (more form fitted clothes)

Do I need ease and flow? (maxi dress or flowy top)

Do I need support? (high waisted pants, please)

You might think, I need to know what shape that is and how does it fit my size? (remember everyone is different) If I told you that you were a pear shape and needed to wear Aline dresses and we should counter your hip width with broader shoulders, well, there are gonna be some hard feeling convos in there.

But if I asked you how you felt and what your body needed to be as EFFECTIVE and POWERFUL as possible… instinctually you will start to recognize how you feel in your body as a tool… an informant to choosing clothing that makes you feel more CONFIDENT.

We can have avatars of people we think we like or look like and build our style off that. But that’s an outside in perspective. It’s helpful to know what you are attracted to, but it’s more important to know how your body feels and what it needs.

When I first do a discovery with a client, I look at three areas to get perspective of their style and where they want to go.

  1. Lifestyle
  2. Body Image
  3. Body Shape

When you have an understanding of these 3 things, well, you can never go wrong!

Your style will always evolve based on where you are, the weather, your environment, how you feel and what you are doing. But it doesn’t have to be complex.

Try doing a brainstorm exercise and play with your dream style. Grab my Pinterest Worksheet and have fun building out your desired look and feel. I use this with all my students and clients.

Feel free to respond and share me your Pinterest board with me!
