Episode 4. Today we’re shifting gears a bit. This episode is all about you! Each month I do a special Ask Alexandria episode, where I answer your questions about life, KonMari and style. This month’s questions are wide-ranging. There’s a lot about style, we touch on the KonMari Method, and things get philosophical too.
Here are some highlights...
To look your best for online meetings:
Sort out your lighting. Get near a natural source of light. But, whatever you do, don’t have your back to the window. To look really professional, boost your natural glow with artificial light. Use what you already have around your home, or get something like Elgato’s Key Light Air, which really is a game-changer.
And position yourself well. Make sure your camera is at eye-level and directly in front of you.
And try not to wear black close to your face. Warm skin tones don’t like high-necked black tops. So, if you have to wear black, be sure to show some skin. Or wear a top in one of your best colours with a black blazer.
Worried you have too much stuff?
You’re not alone. Most of us have homes filled with items we no longer really want in our lives. The KonMari Method of tidying gives you a real opportunity to take a closer looker at your belongings and address more fundamental questions too, like how you want to live. Hire a KonMari consultant (like me!) to help you make sense of your space.
Style is all about confidence. If you feel great in what you’re wearing, people will respond to that confidence. Push yourself out of your comfort zone. And, in the end, dress for yourself.
And... dare to dream. With limitless time or money, what could you achieve? It’s helpful to imagine, unencumbered, and open yourself up to possibilities you might not otherwise consider. The ALSO in PINK Ideal Lifestyle Vision Questionnaire is a great place to start.
