Dr Joyce is my image master since 2003. She is always passionate in her profession, enthusiastic and full of energy! Her heart and charisma is very impressive to me.

Whenever I need her advice, she is always with me. Dr Joyce is a wonderful coach. She teaches from the heart, and is always happy to tell me what she knows about. Due to the difference of our mother language, I sometimes would have difficulty in communications with her, yet Dr. Joyce always displayed great patience in talking and explaining to me. She is always so humble to say “I work for you”! I feel really lucky to have met her and to learn from her.

Recently, Dr. Joyce kindly invited me to be her partner, to work together to continue her brilliant work. Considering that Dr. Joyce is an undisputed leader in the image profession, it is clearly my great honor and privilege to work with her as a partner. I really treasure it! We decided to build our partnership… We developed the first draft of our joint training plan…. It worked out well and it is really happening!

Dr. Joyce and I share a mutual vision, to want to help our customers and fellow image practitioners to be happy in what they do, and to make it as their life missions to keep our charm and beauty both in and out.I will endeavor to learn Dr Joyce’s practice fully, with humility. I will also try to enrich it with my knowledge in Chinese culture, both traditional and contemporary. We do hope each other and people to live peacefully with grace and beauty, living an exciting life!”

A SAMPLE OF OVERSEAS TESTIMONIALS FOR DR. JOYCE.

I want to express you my thanks for giving me the opportunity to take this course from home. I have to admit that at first I was doubtful about taking a long distance course. But as soon as I talked to you I felt a great confidence. As you know I live in Bogotá, Colombia and it would have been impossible for me to travel to the United States in this moment. Since I was very young I am grooming my sisters, my friends and now my daughter for the parties. It has been just for fun. Now I have found out that I can do this as a way of living and help people feel better with themselves. I have studied psychology and business administration at the university. And have worked with famous designers in Bogotá. Now, everything has fallen together: Image Consultancy has put all this knowledge in my fantastic business. And I am very excited about this new door you gave me the chance to open in my life.

I am not a young person anymore and it is fantastic to know that finally I am happy working and earning money doing what I love to do! I really recommend people in other countries to take this course. It has a very interesting approach to the business and is very well structured, so the student can really learn step by step and is encouraged to do more research. Although English is my second language, I had no difficulties understanding the material and your guidance and support has always been available.

~ Lan Ting, 2005

Additional Quotes from International Students.

lillianI have known Joyce for 15 years and in these years I have been able to notice all the ethic and honesty she has had conducting her counseling and programs.

Also I can say about the loyalty she shows with all the people she knows, she would never say anything inappropriate about them.
Her generosity is also a good quality she has. She is always giving counseling, sending updated information of her programs without asking anything for a change. I´m very glad to have met her. A big part of my success has being because of her.”

paolaFirst of all I would like to thank you for your patience and encouragement. This was an achievement I could have never obtained with any other mentor. I say this because you were not only available when I needed guidance, but you were also made sure I felt comfortable about asking you when understanding instructions was hard because of the language.

What I liked most of your teaching methods is that you made everything very personal and relatable, giving in depth advice on how to make what I have learned my own. By providing slides, notes and a workbook it made the course and modules easier to remember and put into action. I truly thank you for giving me the tools to starting to practice what I love.

Last, but not least I feel very blessed to have found you because I was reinforced on my belief that image is not vain and all about spending. Image is about expression and you helped me understand how looking good helps you feel good and that feeling good is the best way to approach others and give the best of you.

I would also like to share with you an experience I have had working with a friend on her image. She has always been insecure of her weight and size and felt that she was not as pretty as her peers because of that. Since I started sharing with her what you have helped me develop, I have seen her bloom and become more confident. She has even become more social and feels less worried of her size and more interested in what new trends fit her style and body type. I feel very grateful to be able to help others and provide them the confidence they need, and this is all because you gave me the confidence to pursue this path.

Thank you so much Dr. Joyce, you truly are an “ImageMaker.”

I had the distinct and tremendous opportunity and privilege to attend an onsite 9 Day Certification Course with the ImageMaker, Inc. ®.  The information and training I received from Dr. Joyce Knudsen, has revolutionized how I see myself and my business organization namely Kingdom Women in Business (KWIB).

I believe that Dr. Joyce has orchestrated an unforgettable experience for individuals to develop themselves personally and professionally in a powerful and meaningful way.

We learnt how image consulting comprises of internal and external dynamics, the importance of expressing yourself through business etiquette and how theoretically color impacts your overall persona.  One of the key success for me of the training personally relates to the business aspect where Dr. Joyce has been instrumental in creating a brand for me, “The Women’s Empowerment Guru” (She is truly anointed).

If you are an individual who aspires to progress in the image industry and live an empowered life I recommend that you REGISTER and be a part of her training. It is totally transforming.
