Benefits of Your Beauty Game

Benefits of Your Beauty Game

There is pure magic in collaboration. Creating strategic aligned partnerships and alliances. When Amber flew me home to speak at her mastermind retreat in February, I had a wild awakening. I desired deeper connection with women who desire to build residual income.

I’ve worked with multiple social marketing companies over the years, but know they were a one hit wonder. I had to use multiple companies to meet my needs and it was overwhelming.

As I sat in the audience at Amber’s Accelerator Mastermind Retreat over 3 days and spoke with Rachel Camfield (Amber’s bestie, you have to see her speak at the Summit), I felt totally turned on to the opportunity to work closely with Rachel, Amber, and my goddess sister, Meg Haines. It wasn’t just them, it was the products they RE-introduced me too.

I saw the light. I saw the big picture. I birthed the vision!

The vision was ignited by these ladies to support women globally as they embrace their bodies and align their beauty & self care rituals.

Recently, I created a partnership with a beauty and wellness company to help you feel and look like your best version of self.

A little unknown secret about me: I used to be a Lifestyle Medicine Consultant, teaching doctors nutrition and lifestyle therapies to reverse chronic illness. AKA I taught them how to use supplements to heal their patients.

I’m all about the cleanest, the best, and the most natural products to support me.

Firstly the nutrition line had no adverse effects on my tummy like many other commercial products. I was in just for that. But then I started washing my face with the skin care line and POW years of build up started peeling away.

My skin is transforming from the inside out and the new layers are glowing. It’s really something to be able to say at 42 years young!

Last week my photographer came over to do a shoot and she brought me the MAKEUP! Can I get a hell yes? I’ll do a comparison video for you of my vegan gluten free products vs. Arbonne soon.

Let me just say this product is light, breezy, soft and so subtle. It lasts all day and feels amazing! It’s a total game changer on the daily routine.

One thing I know, to feel true inner and outer beauty, there is a balance of daily self care habits, supportive nutrients that help you get to the outer results and masterful mindset.

You my beauty, are a full package deal!

My desire is to support you to get there. I’m looking for 4 women who want to have a rise in their own sense of beauty inside and out. Women who are seeking success, stability, and residual income based on meeting their lifestyle needs. If this feels like you, let’s connect. Just email me and we’ll get you set up for a convo.

I’d love to connect and birth a dream with you.

Hire a Game Changer Influencer

In 2006, I walked into the offices of Step Up Women’s Network in NYC to volunteer and network. I met a woman named Selena Soo and immediately felt a positive energy. I had no idea about the influence she’d have on my life years later.

Selena Soo Impacting Millions CarrieMontgomery.com

This gracious, memorable, and highly intelligent woman was so welcoming. She was working for the non-profit as their publicist. I was impressed. After I took a project in Maui for nine months in 2008, she so kindly replied to my email when I wanted to come back to volunteer.

The thing about NYC is you can go your separate ways and then swing open the door again to reconnect. Years later, I saw Selena from across the room at an event. Stunning as ever, I could see a major transformation in her soul.

She’d just finished her MBA and was in the process of launching her company. It’s as if she popped out of nowhere in the coaching world as an Industry Leader.

This women has created the connections and clients of Ramit Sethi, Marie Forleo, Danielle LaPorte… the list goes on. She’s hosted intimate dinner parties for her community to connect with media pros. She has masterful programs to teach you how to leverage your skills and your business.

Over the past few weeks, I introduced you to the work of Selena. I’m honored to call her a friend, a mentor, and a client. She’s leveraged my exposure to new communities and for that, I’m grateful. She’s taught me step-by-step how to get more media coverage.

She allowed me to see how my work can impact the world on a greater level.

Unseen & Unheard

Imagine a world without Oprah, Marie Forleo, or Lady Gaga.

What if all these women said no to their dream?  We would’ve missed their incredible spirit, creativity, and impact on the world.

Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday would’ve never been born. A nonprofit, The Angel Network would’ve never started, had the opportunity to build over 60 schools, or funded The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy School for Girls.  We need these influences to raise awareness for the underserved. Her power and generosity is regal.

If Lady Gaga never answered the call to create her Born This Way foundation for mental health, so many people struggling with depression wouldn’t have the support they need.  She just announced they’ve partnered with Mental Health First Aid in United States.

Or, if Marie Forleo never launched B-School, tens of thousands of aspiring entrepreneurs would be stuck at a dead end job. That’s A LOT of miserable people.

These women’s wisdom, creativity, and drive have been a force of inspiration for so many. They became comfortable being visible in their vision and mission.

I’m gonna tell you the secret behind visibility, it’s confidence.  

When you’re passionate about what you do, you can’t hide. You’re so moved by your message, that you can’t stop telling stories and encouraging people to take positive action.

Sure, I’ve doubted my styling technique. I compared myself to other stylists and thought, but I do it SO DIFFERENTLY.  I was afraid that my approach to getting dressed wouldn’t be accepted. When I lacked confidence, I pulled back, and didn’t allow myself to be seen, especially in the media.

But now I know that, man, I’m doing the right thing.  If I hadn’t shown up for my clients like Amber Lilyestrom, then she wouldn’t have been able to feel confident. She’d miss out on THE GIFT of embracing and loving her body. If I hadn’t put myself out there as a guest expert inside other peoples communities, then I wouldn’t have been able to lead the women who are rising in their businesses as experts and leaders.

If I want to succeed in business, it’s my responsibility to be visible, so I can teach women to be comfortable in their skin and their second skin (clothes).  It’s my mission to teach them how to access their body as a tool to manifest their dreams.

So, back to you. What’s stopping you from being visible?  Email me and let me know!

This is your time to leverage your vision, so you can be seen by the people who need you.  Next week, I’ll be sending you a nudge to help you get visible.

I’m here to support you and your vision of success.

XO,

Carrie

P.S. I believe the ideas in your heart are there for a reason. To make the world a better place.

Your Secret Weapon

Your Secret Weapon Blog CarrieMontgomery.com

Do you know the secret weapon behind seeing your name in lights?

It’s relationships.

Who you rub elbows with and how you can support each other will leverage your business tenfold.  

Think back to the first referral you ever got.  How happy were you to reply to an intro email from a former client raving about your work to someone who needs your help?

Becoming a publicity powerhouse is working all the angles of how your business can gain visibility. It’s not just getting in a magazine or newspaper. It’s getting on podcasts, being a guest expert, sharing your offers at other people’s events, and connecting with as many new people as possible to get your message out there.

You know what my number one source of new business is?  A warm audience. That’s from old clients, to standing in front of a new, yet, very aligned audience through a trusted friend.

Like my recent speaking gig.  I was a guest expert for Amber Lilyestrom’s Accelerator Mastermind.  She asked me to speak about Embodiment and how to access it. It was a gift to share my work in an intimate room of 25 women who were ready to step into their next level of excellence.

There have been multiple opportunities for me to show up as a guest expert that I’ve gotten warm intros to new audiences. It is an incredibly intimate, experiential opportunity for expansion.

How do you feel about networking?

I know it’s a skill that takes practice, patience, and perseverance.

This is one of my favorite exercises that I take my branding clients through when they’re upleveling their vision.

  1. Make a list of dreamy people you’d like to meet or work with.  For example: Oprah, Jane Fonda, and Gloria Steinem are my top 3.

  2. Then play the game “6 degrees of Kevin Bacon.” This is a game where you can track how many people you are away from the folks you’d like to meet.  This means, how many people would it take for you to connect with to reach this person? For example, Oprah is actually one degree from me. I have multiple clients that’ve been on Super Soul Sunday, I also know someone that works for her.  It’s a very direct link, but would need a very powerful ask or the right timing to make this happen. But just knowing how accessible she could be, opens the door to possibilities. Take Jane Fonda, she was actually spoke at my college graduation, so I could reach out to my school for a connection.  I’m sure she’s more like a 3-4 degrees of separation.

Play the game.  You don’t have to focus on mega stars.  It can be local powerhouses. This teaches you how you can reverse engineer your network that can lead to new  pathways and broader horizons.

I have a friend that’s absolutely amazing at connecting with industry leaders, so much so, that people were shocked when she launched her business and ALREADY had endorsements from people like Danielle LaPorte and Marie Forleo. She inspires me to always remember that my most valuable business assets are my relationships.

Share with me! Who’s on your list?

With love,

Carrie

Bashful to Bold

Bashful to Bold Blog CarrieMontgomery.com

How BOLD do you feel?

Can you step out and scream from the rooftops what you do and why?

Are you ready to let everyone see you: the good, bad, and unusual?

Beauty, the number one game changer in building a business and brand is being cool with being seen.

It takes a deep, deep inner confidence to know what you do and why, so you can speak about it all the time until you reach your desired success.

I’m pretty good at creating chaos and confusion.  Over the years, I’ve had to strip away the things that weren’t serving me, so that I could focus on new levels of success.

To me, success is way beyond a monetary value. It’s about owning a sense of freedom and expression.  It’s about having the ability to abundantly serve myself and my tribe. That means I need pristine self care.  Yup, lots of tubs, workouts, meditations, writing, walks, connecting with friends and clients. I love to throw in extra beauty around me like flowers or a good meal.

To have your desired success, how much VISIBILITY do you need?

It depends on the impact you desire to make.

If you see yourself influencing millions and changing their hearts, minds, and souls with your product or service, well, babe, it’s time to get cool with being visible.

My business focuses on building an image for you to feel more confident in your skin, so you can go out and make epic leaps and bounds in the world.  When you stand before an audience, you’re not be afraid that your dress might fall off, or if your undies are sticking out. Or worry if you look fat or too short.  I teach you to live beyond just your image and how to project your soul through getting dressed.

That’s not everything you need to build a successful business. There are many parts that need to be served and addressed.  Like honing your niche, building systems, delegating tasks, building a team the supports you. My 7-figure clients have tackled all the aspects to raise their profile to epic success.  And guess what, they aren’t stopping there.

So, here’s my question to you.

How comfortable are you with being visible? Hit reply and let me know.

Much love,

Carrie

P.S. Over the next few weeks, I’m going to share some great information on how to gain traction with getting visible from my mentor and client.  Keep checking this space for the free training coming up.

The Power of Media

The Power of Media Blog CarrieMontgomery.com

There are many ways to grow your business. And it really is up to you to decide what course of action feels good. BUT, there’s this thing about getting out of your comfort zone and stretching yourself to your new highest. Exceeding your expectations of yourself is life changing.

The number one credibility builder and visibility enhancer in business is MEDIA. Yup, mass media. Here’s the amazing thing, there are so many outlets available that can be aligned with your business.

My career started in film, I was very familiar with media like INSTYLE, PEOPLE, and VOGUE. These magazines set trends and have a wide reach. They’re powerful. And a tid bit intimidating to knock on their door.

As I built my business over the past 5 years, I’ve been able to get my work in magazines and on TV due to my clients media schedules. My work very quickly was seen on Super Soul Sunday, New Channels, and brand photoshoots all over the world.

But here’s the big catch, nobody knew it was MY WORK. It’s rare to see a stylist’s name in TV credits unless they work for the show or are on the show. Magazines are a little different and I was excited when I got a regular monthly feature of my work.

Last year I knew it was time to shift my VISIBILITY. It was time to go from behind the scenes to the front lines. My work had shifted with Create Your Soul Style. It was time to claim a new roll in the transformational style coaching world.

I help soulful women entrepreneurs radiate strength and confidence by introducing them to their true style, which runs deeper than labels and capsule wardrobes. It allows them to express their true calling.

My clients have shared the value of my work, but now it’s time to start tipping the scales and exposing the big beautiful world to this revolutionary way to get dressed. Shifting your thinking can be an uphill battle. But when it’s for your life’s purpose and true passion, it’s do or die.

Did you know that you can leverage your exposure and gain a new audience when you get media coverage?

Did you know that you gain credibility when a media outlet endorses you or your work?

Media is a massive leverage tool. Even though I knew media, I wasn’t using it for myself. I was happy to get it for clients, but always kept myself behind the scenes.

Last year I made a dream list of media opportunities. I was thrilled to walk into two opportunities that were game changers for me. One was getting on TV on MaineLife and two was getting a Cover Feature in Maine Women Magazine of my work. Just the act of reaching out, pitching, and knowing how to respond made me all the more confident that I could be a Cover Girl. (And I was.). Being in the media on any level builds credibility and when you can keep leveraging that from one level to the next, well it becomes, a segment on The Today Show, a game changer moment that you’re dreaming off.

Your next step?

Make a list of your dream media opportunities.

Ignore any limiting beliefs about it not being possible or that you might be crazy. Just let yourself DREAM BIG. Hit reply and share with me if you’d like!

I can’t wait to see what you dream up!

XO,

Carrie
