Hello there! Aileen Lane here.
I want to tell you a story about how I came to help Personal Stylists like you.
I wasn’t always an image consultant you see. Prior to becoming an image guru, I worked in the food industry down on the production floor (not very glamorous). I wore a white uniform, a blue net cap and safety shoes everyday and I can tell you none of those colours worked for me!
One day, the infant formula company I worked for brought in an image consultant to talk about the difference colour made to our appearance. The image consultant lady brought a few volunteers up to the top of the room and demonstrated the difference wearing the right colours made to how attractive and healthy you look. I was very, very taken with the idea and decided to change my career there and then. Now if you know me, this was rather a big jump to take as I had a very solid career and had been progressing nicely up the corporate ladder. However, I was bored to death and felt I was missing out on the fun things in life.
I opened the door to my image business in March 2006.
My friends helped me paint the walls of my newly rented office on Orchard Road and helped me locate furniture to kit it out.
I had left my high paying corporate job the month before without a backward glance.
I was so excited and filled with passion to help people look and feel great.🤗🤗
I sat there in that big expensive office for almost a year until funds ran out.
You see, like a lot of image consultants, I hadn’t a clue how to run a business or what it took to have a steady flow of clients.
There were lots of image trainers teaching technical skills but few teaching consultants how to actually get clients.
I learned slowly and painfully what it took to get more clients.
I took a break from my business for a few years when the children were small and when I restarted my business, I decided to do it differently this time around.
I learned everything I could about running a profitable business and how I could grow my business quickly. Obviously knowing what didn’t work through experience saved me a lot of time and effort.
Now, I have a business I am very proud of and can run from anywhere in the world teaching other consultants how to be financially independent.
Maybe I had to experience the challenging path to get to where I am now, but if you are an image consultant today, you don’t need to go it alone.
There is so much help out there.

‘Aileen Lane and I had a professional relationship since 2007 when we were serving on the board for the Association of Image Consultants International Singapore. Since then, we have been clients to each other, developing mutual trust and respect as friends, and always learning professionally as colleagues in the same industry. I would highly recommend Aileen as a colour and style consultant who has an exceptionally good eye and talent in colour analysis – something you can’t easily learn from books. Aileen is authentic and cares for every client to bring out their best.’

” Hi Aileen, I’m doing a LinkedIn challenge and need to recommend 5 people today. You are an obvious choice as your help and support has given me the confidence to pick up my online colour consultation and make it real! I’m still learning from you every day and have a long way to go, but i would highly recommend any image consultant wanting to believe in her business to do a course with you x”
Adele Mitchell, Image Consultant
” I came across Aileen Lanes online colour course when I made a decision to review and change my Style Coaching packages and offerings. My mission is to transform lives by empowering women who want more confidence and success by elevating their image, impact and presence through their appearance and a healthy and positive mindset. I trained in colour analysis years ago, but Aileen’s online colour course was a fantastic refresher, giving me new tools and techniques to take my colour consultations online and therefore have a global reach. Aileen’s approach is so engaging, motivating and most professional. She’s a very competent colour consultant, no question or problem is too big or too small for her when it comes to colour and the Image Consultancy business on the whole. She designed practical and fun exercises to work on which helped me approach my colour service differently, but also provided invaluable ongoing support to personally help me refocus and refine my specific market. I’ve had lots of interest in my new online colour consultations with new bookings coming through! I really valued working with Aileen as her experience, expertise and knowledge in the industry is second to none! If you want to take your image business to the next level as I have done, I recommend you don’t delay and sign up with Aileen today!”
