Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 18, 2006
A Beautiful Life, Inc. announces the opening of its image and career consulting business in the Galleria area of Houston, Texas and its new website, http://www.4abeautifullife.com.
Until recently, most people did not know that image consultants were available to help them improve their appearance and confidence. However, the increasing popularity of reality television shows that feature makeovers are changing that fact. More and more people are learning what an image consultant can do for them. Many participants on these reality shows comment after the makeover about how surprised they are that changing how they look on the outside changed how they feel on the inside; in fact, they often say it will change their lives. This is one of the reasons that A Beautiful Life was formed. The owner, Sue Conkright AICI is on a mission to assist clients in creating a beautiful life for themselves. She founded the company to help clients build confidence, achieve greater levels of success, and gain peace about their appearance.
Another reason that Conkright created A Beautiful Life is the large increase in career mobility. Many people used to choose a profession, get a job, and work for the same company until they retired; such job longevity is very rare in this day and age. Many people have trouble finding a career that they find satisfying. People need resources to help them determine which careers are right for them before they have invested a lot of time and money in attaining the qualifications necessary to get professional positions in their chosen fields. Events and trends over the years are causing more and more people, including many Houstonians, to undergo career transitions. These trends include issues such as the Enron and Arthur Anderson scandals, company mergers and acquisitions, off-shoring and near-shoring of jobs, the shift from product and manufacturing related jobs to service related jobs, and constant changes in technology. A Beautiful Life assists people in finding their calling and making the most of their career possibilities.
In addition to its personal consulting services, A Beautiful Life also provides group seminars and corporate training. Business casual dress codes have many benefits, but they have also created some problems for managers and human resource professionals when some employees take it too far and forget the “business” in business casual. A Beautiful Life offers corporate seminars to address those problems as well as other issues regarding professionalism in the workplace, such as phone manners, non-verbal communication, and business etiquette. Gift certificates for personal image consulting make excellent performance awards for employees with strong job performance; both the employee and the employer benefit from the employee’s improved confidence and appearance. Also, the employee is not likely to forget about the award as quickly as traditional performance awards, because the benefits are longer lasting.
Starting in September, A Beautiful Life’s seminar, “Lose 15 Pounds in 5 Minutes; Dress Slim and Balance Your Body Shape” will be available to individuals through Leisure Learning Unlimited Inc (LLU). The seminar will be held on September 16, 2006 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM and again on December 12, 2006 from 7:00PM to 9:00PM just in time for people who want to look fabulous for the holiday parties.
