Hi, I'm Michelle Sterling with Sterling Style Academy, and I am here to talk to you more today about how to become a personal shopper. Oftentimes, personal shoppers have one core thing in common, we love to shop. Love to shop all over the world, in every single mall. Whatever it might be, high end, medium, low end, from H&M all the way to couture. If you love to shop, this is the right job for you. So, the first thing I recommend to do in order to become a credible personal shopper, because anyone can say that they are a personal shopper, is to look up image consulting training or personal shopper training to become a certified consultant or personal shopper. This gives you a lot more credibility, you can charge more as a result. And more people will take you seriously. Because when you actually take proper training, proper training will show you what type of wording you should use in order to speak to the client more eloquently. For example, if you are in a dressing room with a client and be like, oh my God I love that on you. Okay, that's great, but that's what every sales associate can say to you, "I love that on you." If you are in the dressing room, though, and actually give valuable information to the client, like this shirt looks fabulous on you because it accentuates your eyes. It brings out, it's the right color for you and it's also good for you because it denotes trust and credibility. That's a blue shirt, for example, with someone with blue eyes. These are the things that you learn in order to become a credible personal shopper, and I highly recommend that you look more into those types of things if you are interested in becoming a serious personal shopper. I'm Michelle Sterling with Sterling Style Academy, and thanks for joining us today.
