A couple of months ago I photographed Stephanie Chan for her Business Portraits. Stephanie is a Life Coach and runs Stephanie Chan Life Coaching. She loved the images I created for her so much that’s she recommends me to her clients to assist them with creating beautiful photographs for their business or personal life. I wanted to include her women’s seminar in my blog because I think it could change your life.
Stephanie is on a mission to assist women to feel empowered and to create the life they desire. If you’re single then the great news for you is that Stephanie is running free seminars in Sydney called Single Shmingle. It’s the ultimate Coaching Programme for single women. It doesn’t matter if you simply wish to enjoy your current single status or you’re looking for a partner – this event is for you.
One of the most important things you will learn at Single Shmingle is understanding how your psychology works and how you can use it to create the life you want. Once you understand why your mindset is the key, you can then master it to your own advantage instead of being at the mercy of it.
You’ll also learn tips, tools and strategies about how to make your dating experience (which can often be an emotional roller coaster ride) more fun and more successful. It’s all about gaining the confidence, developing the self belief and the understanding of what you want in order to create the life you desire.
A unique part of Stephanie’s Seminar is that single Sydney guys are interviewed live on stage to find out what they really think of your dating profile, what they’re really looking for, and what makes them chase you or head for the hills! A bit like that movie, “He’s Just Not That Into You”. Wouldn’t you just love to know?
There are also do’s and don’ts for creating your online dating profile (having an honest but great image of yourself is a good start) and the importance of body language. I use body language when I create portraits – it’s what connects people to you when you don’t know them. I teach my clients what works and what doesn’t in their portraits before we start the shoot. Interestingly, men and women use very different body language.
Online dating is no longer that strange place where monsters lurk. Back in 2008 I was on one of the few mainstream dating sites – something I swore I would never do. I spent hours trying to construct my profile – and my photo? Ugh, let’s just say I hit the delete key on that one sometime ago. I was so mortified when the first person contacted me that I took down my profile in horror – “it’s too scary, what on earth am I doing?” A week later with a glass of wine to hand, I got over it and put the profile back up. I met my future husband not long after. I loved his profile but he owns Motive Marketing so I guess he knew how to market himself. Most of us don’t.
Single Shmingle will be running again in January 2015 in Sydney’s Inner West so you can sign up here to register. The Seminars have all been free so far but I would register today for the next one today as these events aren’t going to be free for much longer. Single Schmingle is so popular, it even recently made the papers.
Here’s a few words by Poet, Derek Walcott. It’s about finding love and loving yourself once again. It’s about remembering, despite whatever you have been through in the past, you are a magnificent being. You always have been and always will be.
So, sit. Feast on your life.
Regardless, if it’s business or pleasure, you need an online image that is authentic and striking. It needs to connect you to either your potential partner, or if for business, to potential clients before you have even spoken. It’s about building trust. First impressions count.
