Gettin’ Your Model Moxie On!

Have you ever found an outfit or accessory that, the moment you saw it and put it on, it somehow changed you? Made you feel different? I’ve had that experience numerous times, but most recently, after I found a red wool fedora. The moment I saw it in the boutique, I fell in love with it. I confess second-guessing myself for a bit, though. I’d never seen one that color before, and wasn’t sure I could pull it off. “It’s so bright”, I thought. “I’ve never seen anyone else with it.” I walked away initially, but couldn’t stop thinking about it. After contemplating it for a few days, I went back for it and I’m so glad I did.

Red Hat- jodie
That’s the power of fashion, I think. It can lift your mood, change your outlook or even give you confidence when maybe you don’t really feel it. It can also instantly change an otherwise ordinary outfit into one that stands out, sets you apart. Pictured here is a simple “I’d Rather Be Shopping” t-shirt dress/bodycon found at TJ Maxx, a Forever 21 denim button-up and gladiator heels (www.nastygal.com). By themselves, it’s a cute enough ensemble. Add that pop of color, that hat, though, and it becomes something altogether different.

So, I encourage you to find that piece that speaks to you, makes you smile, makes you walk a little taller. Maybe it’s a hat, a pair of shoes, a dress. Whatever it is, wear it boldly and with pride. (Don’t be afraid to shine. It’s your right:)

Part 2: Interview with Tonja M Nair, Owner of Headz Up Hats!

What’s the hardest  business decision (or next to the hardest you ever had to make?)

 I’m currently grappling over a business decision right now as we speak, I’m praying and seeking direction as to weather I should keep my hair salon open and running or if that season is completely over. This is a very hard and serious decision . I continue to seek.
How do you define purpose and what do you believe your purpose is in life? Are you still on that path to defining it? What does it entail?
I look at material all the time that has to do with spirituality, physical, mental, and emotional well being. I’m passionate for coaching others in every aspect of life, where ever the need may be. I feel my purpose in life is to Inspire, Empower and Encourage others to exceed their full potential. I define purpose as: “someone having fulfillment from an act, deed or service that money can’t buy. “There’s a knowing on the inside that resonates as peace and well being that your fulfilling what you were meant to do on the earth. I do believe that I am fulfilling my destiny and I also believe there’s room for more growth and expansion in my life.
What is calling your name?  
(What makes you get up with eagerness and inspiration every morning? 
If I had to say what is calling my name it would be (SUCCESS) I believe there’s always work to be done!
The personal values that give me strength are the word of GOD! The business values that give me strength are my customers. Having the privilege to be able to supply them with a product giving them that personal touch, beats the idea that they could shop  on line or other places. This in and of itself  gives me great pleasure to serve them.
What personal and business values do you believe give you strength? And how have they transformed your ability to be courageous?
I believe that on a daily basis I do what I do ; and it’s called “Courage.” I believe  I’m courageous.  It’s a personal perception. The Bible says that “as a man thinks so is he” , and I would say, so he does. So when you see me know that I am doing ….as I think …and so I am  doing.
