About our BODY ACCEPTANCE:
LetGooDressYou.com is a culmination of ideas, inspirations, and visions from celebrity stylist Thomasina “Goo Goo” Atkins. Her signature “sass with class” style and eradicated the age-old idea that women of faith could not also exhibit a modern and trendy style.
Her trademark has been working mostly with curvy women whom ordinarily in the entertainment business would feel ‘awkward’ about their sense of style and confidence. Even through social media, she highlights the very best of women who have inner beauty. Get inspired by women built and shaped like you – no matter the size.
BEING AN INTROVERT:
A great way to work on being less than an introvert is to insert yourself in environments that you’d normally shy away from; WHY? Because someone once said, the only way to grow is to stretch. Conquer territory unseen to unlock your hidden treasures; a great way to do that is to join a local actors workshop or improv class.
Meet actress Tasha Smith of Tasha Smith Actors Studio. She created an interactive environment for aspiring actors and actresses to blossom. You don’t have to want to be in entertainment to utilize this tool. Any and everyone looking to break out of their shell is welcome to attend.
NOT FITTING INTO A 9-to-5 JOB:
Tired of feeling stuck or down in the dumps about your career? Step your game up with a career coach.

Having a mentor or a little guidance professionally could prove positive results and reinforcements for oneself. A little help along the way isn’t an idea for amateurs, it’s brainstorming for those open to branching out.
With so much pressure to be ‘perfect’ or the epitome of societies perceptions, we all must consciously tap into the very best of ourselves and sometimes it requires the assistance from those around us.
