Here's what people are saying...
On Brenda’s “Monthly Marketing Bundle” year-long program
Brenda, you are an angel in human form! I love your Monthly Marketing Bundles. This is the most pragmatic and truly helpful marketing program I've seen yet -- I know, because I've signed up for a different one every year for the past several years. Each one has taken me a few steps forward, but your program is a brisk and purposeful walk, or I shoud say run, toward success.
Bernie Burson, AICI FLC, CDI
I knew I needed to do a newsletter, but it was just one of those things that always seemed to slip through the cracks. I needed to do a better job of reaching out to my clients and potential clients. I signed up for the MMB program, thinking it would be helpful. Well, it's helped much more than I imagined it would. Now I am able to put out a monthly newsletter, and it is possible ONLY because of the content I get in this program. The tip sheets and articles are spot-on relevant -- they cover what my clients are thinking about or will be thinking about.
"I feel that connecting with clients in a meaningful, personal, expert manner is key to building my business relationships, and this program has made that possible. My business is building at a rapid rate, and I know that it would not be without this valuable program. I'm so glad I decided to make the investment in my business."
"As a result of the MMB program and the ideas I've gotten from the strategy calls, I have a much more focused approach to my image business. The MMB program has helped me define my ideal client and, as a result, be more effective in my marketing efforts. In addition, having a consistent, high quality newsletter has enabled me to further define and promote my business brand in more fun and creative ways. As a result, my business has more than doubled in the 2 years I have been a part of the program.
The most rewarding benefit, is that this growth has been in the areas of image that I most enjoy. I have also benefited tremendously from the connections with other image consultants. Our MMB calls are filled with money-making ideas. We love sharing ideas and experiences.”
Tracy Varga, AICI
"The Monthly Marketing Bundles take the pressure off of having to develop everything ourselves and gives us consistent pieces to put out to our clients so our newsletter is something that they’ll want to continue to read. It gives me more time to work on my clients rather than developing marketing materials. And the teleseminar each month allows us to share amongst ourselves what we’re doing with the material so we get more ideas. It’s another way to connect to other image consultants all over the world.”
Marjory DeRoeck, AICI CIP
"The last MM Bundle contained just what I needed. I feel I have what I need to make a talk lively and informative. Plus, I've had in mind your instruction that the #1 way to get new clients is public speaking. I finally decided that even though I don't really feel ready, I just need to pull the trigger and announce an event. It's going to include a little collaging project which I learned from those on the Monthly Marketing strategy call. Can't WAIT for the next Bundles! Thanks very much for your support!"
On “You Had Me at the First Style Appointment” the 6-week Teleseminar
"I had really high expectations when I signed up for your course. I am pleased to say that it was money well spent and a good investment for my career. Your Style Assessment Tool kit leaves me speechless. It is very well structured. You set the scene really well with the pre-meeting questionnaire. It is perfect. I loved it! I can also see from the clients point of view the benefits that she will receive by answering those excellent questions. I really want to thank you, Brenda, for your creative and timeless ideas and the fantastic work you do for us.”
Anna De Stafano
"Taking Brenda’s teleseminar, ‘You Had Me at the First Appointment,’ has provided me with tools and techniques that will help me really tap into my clients and their image goals. Brenda demonstrates to you just how valuable it is to really get who your client is from the inside out. I’d recommend this class to new and seasoned image consultants. You’ll learn so much and working with Brenda is such a joy!”
"Brenda Kinsel is a very talented teacher and coach. Her enthusiasm and direct approach, combined with all her knowledge and experience makes this an extremely useful class. The class has made me change my approach with clients entirely and has brought me such confidence. This is an invaluable class for any image consultant, no matter their experience!”
Jeannine Ritter, AICI
"Brenda's class, 'You Had Me at the First Appointment' was a great investment. In 6 short classes I learned a new process that generates positive results! I used Brenda's formulas even before I finished the class and found that my clients enjoyed the experience and together we generated more effective results! The process is a roadmap for developing long term relationships with your clients. Brenda's experience is amazing and her approach to teaching is so effective. I recommend this class to any Image Consultant who wants an easier, more effective and fun way to work with her clients."
Margaret Batting, AICI
"I got so much out of Brenda's, 'You Had Me At The First Appointment' class! Brenda's 25 years of experience in the image consulting business is helping me completely bypass mistakes that could have cost me time, clients, and money. Going through Brenda's unique style assessment exercises even helped me label my own quirky style--I'm a 'twisted classic!' Brenda's style homework has also put me in the shoes of my clients, equipping me to better serve and KEEP their valuable business.
Being part of Brenda's teleclass was also a great way to meet other consultants from around the world. It's great to know other stylish minds have the same concerns and problems as I do. My classmates added valuable insight to my experience with the class, generously sharing their experiences and ideas with the whole group.
I'd recommend Brenda's 'You Had Me At The First Appointment' class for any consultant who wants to learn the care and feeding of the client in a caring, enthusiastic way.”
"The class way exceeded my expectations and really helped me to focus! -- something I tend to struggle with. Brenda has a very thorough, practical and enjoyable style of teaching. I can't wait for the next class!!"
Claire Edwards, AICI FLC

Just wanted to thank you again for such a phenomenal class! I am taking away SO much useful information that I am able to implement now...as I said in the class...it amazes me how giving you are to share all your trade secrets that have made you the success that you are!"
"These two teleseminar courses with Brenda have been the best career gift I could give to myself. My job opportunities have been soaring in the past two months. One million thanks to Brenda for sharing her unique knowledge and expertise with us.
"Brenda’s materials were invaluable. In addition to our weekly teleclass, Brenda provided study materials and visual aids that we could use during the calls. Her ongoing support and commitment to her students is unsurpassed. Brenda made sure all of our questions regarding closet work and client communication were answered before the class concluded."
Karen Karlsen, FLC
"Brenda's classes are perfect for first-time consultants, as well as those who have been in the business a while. Every student is provided valuable constructive and confidence-building feedback. In the 'Closet Magic' class I learned how to take my own judgments out of the picture and truly serve the client. Brenda teaches you the language to use to gently deal with the client.
Since taking the Closet Magic class, I realize what a valuable service this is for me to provide my clients. Now that I'm armed with new knowledge and enthusiasm, I can't wait to get into my next client's closet!"
"Brenda Kinsel’s 'Closet Magic' class is pure magic for those of us in the image consulting business. Targeted, well-organized materials made it easy to develop new skills required to professionally audit a closet. This was a dynamite class with real information that I can put to use immediately!”
"Yes! There is magic in Brenda’s style recipe and closet management system! It is all about developing skills to probe, anticipate and acknowledge the client's needs. Now I can be their stylist, cheerleader, and negotiator in helping them move toward achieving their goals and objectives."
Margo Hasen, AICI
"Another excellent class! It's so great that Brenda is making her experience available to us and that she presents it in such an organized, focused way. It's stuff I can use right away!"

"I’m so impressed with Brenda’s top-notch professionalism, kindness, enthusiasm, teaching ability and fashion intelligence. Brenda’s consistency and calming-and-reassuring demeanor are just a few of the reasons I continue to hire her as a coach and mentor.”
