#HipNJ Interviews Christine Fowler Phillips

#HipNJ Interviews Christine Fowler Phillips

#HipNJ recently had the pleasure of interviewing Christine Fowler Phillips about her motivational self-help book.  She details specific suggestions to creating a winning image, along with the importance of having the right attitude and branding yourself.

Christine is a corporate image consultant, public speaker and author.  She is a member of the Association of Image Consultants International, President and Founder of Discover Your Best Self, LLC and was a top sales professional in the pharmaceutical industry for over two decades.

“Branding is simple- it’s who you want to be recognized as or the perception of how others receive you.  It may be a signature, a greeting or something you wear,” Christine said.  “And keep in mind, it’s the good, the bad and the indifferent.  I had a good corporate experience, so it prepared me to be my best self.  You never want to lose yourself within the company, but it’s important to align yourself with them.”

The idea behind the book is to remind executives about the importance of not overlooking corporate etiquette, manners and appropriate business attire.  It’s also a way for college graduates to maximize their potential as they navigate their careers.

“As a business, Discover Your Best Self is a consulting company that hosts workshops, which are based on inward and outward image.  Clients are typically college students through junior executives,” Christine shared.  “We discuss topics including dressing for the job you want, emotional intelligence and bringing your A game every day, inwardly and outwardly.”

The workshops that are offered are beneficial to both men and women.  However, for women, a lot of life becomes consumed with family.  They put themselves on the back burner even though they should be putting themselves first.

“It’s important to take a moment to be self-reflecting because sometimes you need to recalculate so that you can be your best self,” Christine said.  “You have to take time for yourself because it helps build inner confidence, which is not to be confused with arrogance – confidence shines through.”

When going through these discoveries, it’s not always easy to stick with the changes to be your best self.  We asked Christine what her most helpful tip is, and here’s what she had to say:

“If you believe in your brand and that what you’re doing is the best for you, then you have to stick with it.  It’s never too late to change if you believe that’s what you need to do.  You will brand yourself accordingly if you believe in it.”

For more information, please visit Discover Your Best Self.  Christine’s book is available now on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
