WHY I BECAME AN IMAGE CONSULTANT

October 5, 2023

Hello, I’m Sara Rivman and there are two passions that fuel my existence: helping others and expressing my creativity. It has been my mission to find ways to create not just for the sake of creation but to make a positive impact on people’s lives.

For many years, thanks to the support of my amazing husband, Jeremy, I was able to be a stay-at-home mom for my two children, Kylie and Connor. Still, I found pockets of creativity in the beauty and fashion industry. Unfortunately, most of my roles revolved around selling products, which didn’t fulfill my true calling. I yearned for work that allowed me to be both creative and helpful, making a meaningful impact on people’s lives.

As my children Were getting into their teenage years, I had decided it was time to  start my own small jewelry business. I put my heart and soul into crafting beautiful pieces. However, I soon realized that the true value of what I created went far beyond its price tag. Instead of selling my jewelry, I chose to donate it to charities supporting women who needed a little luxury in their lives.

For 20 years, I faced several medical challenges. Rather than letting pain hinder me, I used it as motivation to dive deeper into my passions. About seven months ago, I made a significant decision to elevate my creativity. 

I wanted to make a substantial impact in the beauty and fashion world.

I began by enrolling in numerous classes, enhancing my knowledge and skills. This newfound motivation led to the birth of Sara Rivman LLC. In this venture, I became a personal stylist and style coach, but with a unique twist. My primary goal was to help women discover their unique beauty and personal style, both inside and out. So I delved not only in outer styling but also into skincare and makeup, ensuring that my clients received a holistic transformation. This is why I became an image consultant.

My process starts by going through my clients’ existing wardrobes, helping them understand what works best for them and what needs a refresh. I teach them the art of applying products and creating makeup looks, instilling confidence and empowerment. 

To me, personal style isn’t just about standing out; it can open doors to better jobs, higher salaries, new friendships, and even love. When you feel amazing, you exude confidence and power. And while I know I found my passion, I know my journey doesn’t  stop here! 

I wanted to make an even broader impact. This is how “Spree For Those in Need” was born, a charity event with a simple mission: to provide homeless women and teenage girls with clothing that would make them feel good about themselves. Through donations, my hope is that this event will allow these individuals to “shop” for items that empower them, because I believe that everyone deserves to look and feel their best.

All of these things have led me to an exciting path I want to share with you, dear readers, first! I  am in the beginning stages of launching my own fashion line, focusing on redesigning pieces. I take existing items from various sources and transform them into something new and upscale. I know I can take pieces from drab to fab.

While my clothing line is still in its early stages, I’m excited about its launch in early 2024. You can stay updated by following my blog and checking for more details. Something you can also check out is the page I have in the magazine, The Cincinnati Style Report. My goal is to use my passion, creativity, and love for others to change lives and make a difference in the world.

My story is proof that one person’s determination, creativity, and love for others can create a ripple effect of positive change. 

So, remember to be bold, be chic, be glamorous!
