Episode 30: How to Honor Your Body and Build Confidence Through Style with Carrie Montgomery

Why We Love Carrie:

Carrie Montgomery is a Transformational Style Coach, Body Image Expert and creator of The Somatic Dressing Method™ which helps women step into true embodiment and empowered confidence. She teaches women to own their true beauty, build confidence, and create a dream image for their business and life

Having worked with New Line Cinema and stars such as Cate Blanchett and Aaron Eckhart, her expertise in film, design, marketing and wellness, along with her love of fashion, allows her to create a holistic experience for personal style. She curates her clients’ image, helping women look good and feel good from the inside out. This newfound confidence carries over to her clients’ brands, elevating their visibility and taking many of them from 6 figures to 7 figures in as little as one year.

Her work has been featured on OWN, The Oprah Winfrey Network, Super Soul Sunday with Christiane Northrup, Coastal Living, Old Port Magazine, and Hay House. You can connect with her at carriemontgomery.com
