Business Rockstar Health

Maintaining your Business Rockstar Health and Energy is much like maintaining a vehicle. We are all built for different things. Some of us for speed, some for endurance, some for reliability. No matter what we are built for, it is still necessary to maintain our well-being and keep ourselves fine tuned for max performance. It seems simple but, in today’s busy world how can we find time to maintain our Business Rockstar Health?

Here are a few of my secrets:

  • Water:
    Drink Plenty of Water, water and water. Hydration is the key! Since our bodies are made up of over 90 percent water, keeping this balance is crucial, so the next time you have the inkling to grab a soda or cup of coffee, just say “no” and grab a bottle of water instead.
  • Nutrition:
    Fuel your body with good food- most of us eat when we can, grabbing burgers at the drive through or grabbing anything we can stuff in our face. SLOW DOWN- I know we are all busy but what we fuel our bodies with is so important, much like a car, we need good fuel to run on. Take the time to plan your meals.Good lean protein at least 3 times a day or when travelling a good protein shake can keep us on the go! Live foods or foods that are made up of water and minerals are also key to maintaining our performance like green vegetables. I am not a huge fruit fan since sugar is the devil but, if you have a choice between a banana and a snickers bar- go for the banana every time!
  • Rest:
    Everyone needs rest; do you think a car could run 24 hours a  day and 7 days a week without a little time to cool the engine??? NOPE. But if it does, it wears out more quickly or breaks down sooner. Make yourself a priority, get at least 6 hours a night and you will feel the difference immediately.Plan your time to rest, when on the road make sure to bring your sleep mask and some ear plugs! Give your cells a chance to repair so toxins Don’t build up! I am certainly not claiming to be a certified energy expert and you should always consult your doctor, but I will let my reputation speak for itself. These are the things that have worked for me and that I have had success in teaching and training people!!
  • ****Business Rockstar Health tip:
    Take a look at this link to what has been a GREAT addition to fuelling my energy!! Flu season is here and anything we can do to detox and build our immune system will put us that much more ahead of the game. I use this a minimum of 3 times daily. Organic Apple Cider Vinegar-

Business Rockstar Image

Here is the 2nd piece in our 4 part series of guests bloggers!! This one comes from Laura Hunt, President and CEO of Freeway Fashion. This weeks topic- ROCKSTAR IMAGE!!



By: Laura Hunt, President – Freeway Fashion What does image have to do with being a BUSINESS ROCKSTAR? Glad you asked.  Being a fashion and image consultant who has many clients with professional backgrounds, I can tell you image has a lot to do with being a BUSINESS ROCKSTAR.  Having a refined, stylish image is important.  It encourages others to take you seriously and lends credibility towards your overall demeanor as a professional. Of course, dress codes vary from company to company, but looking polished is always a fabulous rule to follow when it comes to being a BUSINESS ROCKSTAR! Below are more of Freeway Fashion’s simple business image rules.  Some may seem like a no-brainer and comical (to say the least), but you would be surprised at what I have seen sauntering though some of the finest corporate offices! WOMEN:

  1. The clothes you would wear out to a bar are NOT the same ones you should wear for business meetings, the office or even fun, corporate functions.  Image is everything and you should keep that in mind; even if the event includes ROCKSTAR music and alcohol, there is a time and place for everything.
  1. None of us want to walk around looking like we borrowed our grandmother’s skirts, but please, be mindful of your skirt lengths.  While you are seated, you want to be sure the majority of your thighs are covered. This generally means the skirt should fall about 2 inches above the knees. Also, be sure the skirt fits and is not so tight you have hard time bending over to pick up that pen you dropped standing at the water cooler!
  1. Okay, now on to boobs!!! You knew this was coming, didn’t you? Sure we all know sex sells, and cleavage is ever-present in advertisements and marketing campaigns splattered across the Interstates. However, cleavage is not appropriate for business meetings and although people won’t admit to thinking this, it generally will make you look quite a few notches below your professional peers in intelligence level.  Trust me on this one.  I have talked with many men and women in the corporate world who feel this way.  Save your cleavage bearing ways for when it will count the most – like gaining free drinks at the bar!


  1. Please, please, please no wrinkles! Iron your shirts! A crisp clean button down and pressed trousers makes you look so much more polished than walking in like you just slept in your clothes.
  1. Wear dark calf-length socks with your dress shoes.  So many men will put on white socks and that’s fine if you want to look like Cliff, the mailman from Cheers, but if you want to be taken seriously, opt for the dark socks.  Yes, something as small as sock color can make a difference!
  1. Ties can make or break an outfit.  Business image etiquette says ties should be silk or silk-like in fabric.  Classic styles used to be the safe way to go, but if it suits your personality (no pun intended), go for a bright designer tie with contrasting colors.  Leave the cartoon ties at home unless again, it suits your personality or is fitting for the type of meeting you are in.  Like, if you work for the comic strip department at the New York Times.

Well, there you have it BUSINESS ROCKSTARS! Some very simple image rules to follow in the business corporate world.  As mentioned earlier, dress codes may vary from office to office and depending on the industry you are in, rules may change just a bit.  After all, in my book, some rules are made to be fashionably broken! * Founder of Freeway Fashion, Laura Hunt is a Fashion Stylist, Image Consultant and Fashion News Reporter.  She is also the Fashion Editor for AS*I*BE Magazine and Editor in Chief of Diva Drive, an online fashion news blog.
