{BRANDING YOURSELF ONLINE} I often run across pages where the person lists that they are an aspiring model. However, the content they present is quite contrary to what an agency or even a client may be looking for. Let's do a hypothetical portfolio scenario. Imagine that your goal is to work with @target @belk @sephora for instance. Chances are, photos all over your IG of you appearing to be a video vixen where you are scantily clad in a g-string thong and oiled up in every shot as you bend over, is not the brand identity or culture of family friendly friends such as the aforementioned. So if your goal is to work more with swim suit brands or maybe even do music videos, for instance, then those "maxim" type photos may be more appropriate. But truly, each brand and agency are different so it's important that you hone in on what brand identity you wish to showcase for yourself and then realize the potentials or even limitations that such as image can present. Do research on brands you wish to align with to see if your online branding aligns with their target marketing. Once you decide your goals, tailor your online content to reflect that outcome.

Over the summer, I wore my natural hair out much more often than typical. Between better moisture routines and the addition of my @sugarbearhair vitamins, my hair did very well. It felt better and it looked healthier. Now that summer is winding down, I am getting back to doing a few more protective styles to give my hair a break from the everyday manipulation. Next on the list is to get a haircut. How often do you get your ends clipped? #sugarbearhair #ad . What's your hair goal ?

Unfortunately due to so many unscrupulous people scamming aspiring models, there is sometimes this idea that it should not cost anything to be a model or else that means it is a scam. While you can certainly get signed by an agency FREE of charge simply with digital/Polaroid pictures, eventually there will be costs that EVERY model will incur. So NO, you shouldn't pay to JOIN or SIGN with an agency but eventually there will be costs associated with developing a portfolio (photographer, make-up artist, stylist), some agencies charge to be listed on their website, fees for agency to print your comp cards... even if they cover some of your travel costs when you go oversees they will often reimburse themselves that expense from the money you have earned in jobs. All the costs may not occur at once but just like in any other entrepreneur field where you are building a business and costs are associated, so will be the case with modeling. It will cost to invest in your brand. Often models take runway classes or even acting classes as well. Just because you hear "cost" does not mean you are being scammed.

Check out the stretchmarks on my thigh. Yep, no photoshop on that. Social media, magazines, billboards etc. often paint a faded image of reality. So much so that the world walks around often feeling inadequate or less than the person next to them. We often fake the funk (I've been guilty) to fit into an industry that prides itself on curated perfection. Loving brands like @aerie & @dove who are starting to embrace women as we are. Stretchmarks & all. Granted, there is nothing wrong with putting your best foot forward. I do the same and sometimes a little photoshop is just what the doctor ordered for that massive zit that popped up overnight lol...but I don't agree that we should ALWAYS promote so much perfection that nothing around us feels real anymore. Little girls look up to us models and say they wish they looked like us. While it's a true compliment, everyone has their own unique body to try to love...so my ultimate goal in life is for someone to say, "I love your positive energy, I love how kind you are to other people, I love that you aren't throwing around curse words etc etc." That's my authentic self whether I am dolled up for a shoot or in a head wrap in bed. That's what I want people to be drawn to. And my goal is that the energy I emit makes them say "there is something about her" , "I love her natural hair or her smile. let's book her for our next campaign, let's follow her page or she made me smile." (Hey @target yep I'll take that campaign booking hahaha😍.) On the contrary it would be far less impactful if all those blessings come my way as a result of a false portrayal of me. So yes, some models have stretch marks. Sometimes they are photoshopped which is fine but it's nice when people do realize that it's ok to not ALWAYS be perfect. I'm definitely not perfect! Except my green eyes, they are pretty perfect..haha just kidding y'all. Smile with me.

WHEN DO MODELS TRAVEL? As a model, it is possible that you will not be able to stay in the same location year round and achieve the level of success that you desire. Many model markets, for instance Miami and Cape, have a season in which work is at it's peak and others where things are considered "dead". Traveling to new markets a few times in the span of your career is just about a must. Especially if you currently live in a small town, in order to build a brand, increase work opportunites, sign with new agents, create greater chances for networking and the chance to be a more well versed model, visiting other markets within the span of your career is inevitable. I once traveled to Cape Town, South Africa for 3 months during their peak modeling season. Not only did I have wonderful work opportunities through my agency there but it allowed me to experience new cultures, build lifetime friendships and see beautiful scenic views. Surely taking on the task of going to new markets can be very expensive but save up and do the best you can. In the mean time, educate yourself on the industry, practice your posing and work on healthier skin and a fit body. . . 《KAMLA-KAY, MODEL & MODEL COACH.

Woke up this morning with a spirit to serve God in my purpose and to walk by faith and not by sight. Put 1 foot forward knowing that you have the ability to do baby steps to lead you into your divine destination. You may not have all the resources just yet but God will meet you at your need in the appointed timing. Praying that any strongholds, any fear, any doubt will be released from you and that you will smile knowing this is your moment to believe in yourself and in the visions and desires that you have over your life. Go ahead, take 1 step in the right direction and in time all that is meant to be (for you) will come to pass if you trust the process. It may not all be easy; cry if you must, get frustrated if you must, but don't quit. Your happiness, you sense of peace and accomplishment, your financial freedom, your ability to be more confident - all those things are worth you not quitting and settling for less than you deserve. Trust that you are good enough and seek God's will for your life. Find your purpose...it may or may not be what you currently think it is but keep working at it until you are clear.
