How to Gain Experience, Make Money, and Build your Personal Styling Business

The reality for most personal stylists is that while they are busy trying to build their business they're also busy working a full-time job to keep the lights on and food on the table. Building a successful business can take time and unless you have significant savings in the bank or a partner that can afford to support you during the start-up phase then it's important to have the security of a regular paycheck. But even though it's easy to see the benefits of keeping your day job, and you know it makes sense, it can often be a source of frustration and this, in turn, can actually slow down your progress when it comes to building your business. So what can you do, when you can't afford to leave your 9-5 behind? It's simple really! Find a job that compliments your personal styling business, offers you valuable experience, and keeps those regular paychecks coming in. Sounds impossible? It really isn't!

With the growth of personal styling and personal shopping in retail environments, the perfect opportunity awaits personal stylists like you to provide you with valuable work experience, working in an industry that you love, and providing that all-important regular paycheck. You'll be able to use your role to really develop your styling skills, you'll gain valuable experience working 1 on 1 with clients, you'll get advanced insight into the latest styles and trends, and most importantly you'll enjoy your day job and feel happier and probably more inspired when working on your own business. Potential new clients will love to see that you have this experience, especially if it's working for a store/brand that they really love.

It really is the perfect solution to help you overcome those 9-5 blues while you build your personal styling business, and if it's piqued your interest then you can find personal styling positions in your area by using a job site such as Jooble and the keyword Stylist. There are so many opportunities right now and it could be exactly what you and your personal styling business need.

Happy Styling!
