He that rises late must trot all day. ~ Benjamin Franklin
A February Monday dawns cold and gray outside my bedroom window. Cocooned in a down comforter, consciousness begins to dawn over my still-fatigued body. I squint at the clock…7:12 am. Monday’s agenda begins to scroll in my mind: meeting at 8:00, client consultation at 9:30, lunch with Terr….wait…7:12… WHAT?!!
My heart races. Frantic, I shake my slumbering husband. “We overslept!” This compulsively punctual man delivers the challenge,
“Can you be out the door in 15 minutes?”
Here is where the rubber meets the road! Mind and body shift into gear: fast forward. Bolt out of bed, wash face, brush teeth, makeup shortcuts, flat iron to hair, grab a wardrobe pod. Done!
Fifteen minutes from bedroom to driver’s seat, I am fully accessorized and ready to roll. A satisfied face grins back in my rear-view mirror. I am the gold medalist of speed grooming, triumphant on the platform.
As an image consultant and style coach for nearly three decades, my goal has been to help women feel confident by looking their absolute best every day. Shortly after my book, Simply Beautiful, was published, a reader challenged me by asking, “Jill, these ideas are wonderful, but can you tell me how to get out the door in just fifteen minutes?”
Think about your grooming routine. Do you have a 15 minute exit strategy? Let me clarify: I don’t mean an “out the door” look with disheveled hair, a stained shirt, and a frazzled look on your face that gives the impression you rode a cyclone to work. I’m asking if you can go from bed to beautiful, looking your absolute best, and wearing a calm countenance that sends a message of peace to those around you—in just 15 minutes?
Over the past five years I’ve developed an effective method for looking fabulous – fast. I’ve analyzed what slows us down and found practical solutions. This book has been designed to make the dream achievable for you.
