As some of you may already know, More Alive With Color is an update of my first book, Alive With Color and, just as I felt when that book was published, the time is right to present to new generations the concepts presented in that book. It is also the appropriate time to offer an alternative to those people who might have had their colors done and were not particularly happy with the results. Others may feel that times have changed (and they have!) and they would like a more flexible system for selecting colors.
There are many others who simply want to feel more confident with their color choices or are going through transitions in their lives and want to make changes to their color and styling as well. The Color Clock system explained in the book is less rigid than other color analysis systems and includes expanded Crossover colors that work with every palette. Individual personalities and comfort levels are also important considerations in determining personal Colortimes®.
With all of this potential for developing a clientele, the time is right to offer training in personal image and color consulting. If you are already working with color in another field, I believe that this kind of consulting could be a natural adjunct to the work you are already doing. And, as you already have clients, friends, relatives and colleagues who know you have a talent for color, that will provide you with a list of potential clients.
Chances are that they are already asking you for advice. In turn, they have friends, co-workers, relatives and so on who could be referred to you for your services. The expanded potential for consulting is huge as everyone you already know or will meet in the future is a possibility for a consultation. One of the best aspects of this work is that these consultations can supplement your current income and can be scheduled at your convenience. If you are not presently doing color work, but still have a passion and an innate talent for color, training in color and image can help you find another outlet for that passion.
A very useful fanguide of Pantone colors has been developed and will be required as part of the color consultation. It contains all three of the Colortimes®—Sunrise, Sunlight and Sunset—plus the Crossover colors, making it possible to use the fanguide for various purposes, interior design included. As explained in the training, consultants will be able to purchase the fanguides at a wholesale price so that they can include the guide as part of the consultation or resell them to their clients. Expensive color drapes are not necessary for this method of color analysis. Just one neutral colored drape is all that is necessary and both the fanguide and the drape are included in your "starter kit" that is explained below. So, for a minimal business investment, the training will pay for itself very quickly.
The course is illustrated throughout with images that demonstrate important points and examples of client coloring on "real people"—much like a seminar you would be attending in person. There are practice sessions specified in key places throughout the program.
