    [True Confession] What’s in a brand name? Perception. In all honesty I was thinking about changing my instagram handle from @focusonstyle to my name, Sharon Haver. I started to feel like after 2O years online and having a syndicated newspaper column that went out to 400 papers with that name before it, it was time for change.

    Client Attraction_ Why Everyone Doesn’t Have To Really Like You

    When they’re NOT your raving fan… Went to a concert last night and it got me thinking what happens when you’re in front of your wrong audience. The rest of the audience, just me.

What’s key to client attraction is that everyone doesn’t have to like you- that’s how you draw a line in […]

  • You Have The Power To Be True To You

    you have the power

    I’m going to get frank… does this resonate with you or someone you know?? I’m afraid. I’m scared. I’m not worthy. What if….? Little stabs against your self worth, little punctures of your strength… inflicted by your own hand.👹 I see so many women coaches, entrepreneurs, business owners— many younger— who have personally taken their own power away. They’re so afraid to get out there. So afraid to simply just be themselves that they have paralyzed themselves from ever rising […]

  • What Not To Wear On Camera + How To Fix It [Video]

    What NOT to Wear On Camera, TV, Video, Headshots, and Selfies

    What Not To Wear On Camera (Includes a very bad example of me!) Probably the most popular style question I get from entrepreneurs and coaches is what to wear and what not to wear on camera. It really depended on the camera (phone, still, video, TV), your angle, how you are positioned, and the crop. One would think that with 15 years of pro stylist experience I would ALWAYS get it right.
