[True Confession] What’s in a brand name? Perception. In all honesty I was thinking about changing my instagram handle from @focusonstyle to my name, Sharon Haver. I started to feel like after 2O years online and having a syndicated newspaper column that went out to 400 papers with that name before it, it was time for change. Not necessarily just for me… But because the word “style” seems to REPEL a certain audience and ATTRACT another. (Don’t even get me […]

When they’re NOT your raving fan… Went to a concert last night and it got me thinking what happens when you’re in front of your wrong audience. The rest of the audience, just me. I was miserable but not the other 18,000ish people there. That’s because they were raving fans and I’d rather escape to record this video for you. What’s key to client attraction is that everyone doesn’t have to like you- that’s how you draw a line in […]
