Chic Tips

Below are some Chic Tips of the week! For more tips go to

1. Start the Day with a Positive Affirmation: During a time when many of the pillars we have come to rely on in the outside world are crumbling around us, our own inner strength becomes even more important. Beginning your day with a focused intention, an attitude of gratitude, and a positive outlook helps you create a positive outcome. Proactively deciding on and committing to your Chic Attitude is your best defense against letting a downturn get you down.

Here are a few to try:
Thank you for this beautiful new day full of possibilities.
I'm so grateful for all that I have and for all that I am receiving.
I have faith that things will work out for the greatest good.
A lot of people get rich in a recession, and I'm going to be one of them.

2. Tis the Season for Strategic Planning: With the conclusion of 2008 upon us it is time to start laying the ground work Chic Success in '09. Each year brings new opportunity for growth, challenge and achievement. You'll be more likely to make the most of it if you put your objectives and your plan on paper. Smile a lot easier on New Years Eve knowing you have a clear strategy in mind of where you are going to take your company in the new year, instead of wondering where the new year is going to take you.

3. Inform Clients of Holiday Hours for Your Own Peace of Mind: Most customers understand and even expect businesses to have limited hours during the holidays, if the seasonality of their business allows for it. And if yours does, take advantage of this time to refresh, but don't keep others in the dark of your plans. Post holiday hours where customers will find them: on your website, your retail store front door or include them in the voice mail message and/or email auto responder. ... And Have a Happy Holiday Season.
