Another tip that relates to both New Style Boutique 2 - Fashion Forward and real life is to be proactive when it comes to selling yourself, and your product! Of course it's easy to send out some emails and letters, but another great way of actually promoting who you are and what you do is to go out into the real world and talk to real life, walking, talking people. The world is so saturated with technology these days that it's actually quite a skill to be able to go out into the world and talk to random people. In fact, from personal experience, I've found that talking to others about what you do is one of the best and most successful ways to get where you want to be. If you want something - whether it's a promotion on the game or a raise in real life - you gotta go get it!
