A note from the author Christine Dion 

The information found in this website and in my book “Rising Star Skills To Empower & Achieve” are the result of many years spent  following dreams, many challenges unseen and many wonderful experiences that never would have come my way had I not known these secrets.

A Rising Star is a person with emerging talent who is showing promise and growing quickly in popularity. Celebrities, Politicians and those in the public eye spend millions yearly on research and guidance to look and be their very best in public. This is called Public Image. This is important not only because it’s been proven others will judge you in the first six seconds they meet you, but because how you look and act reflects the very core of who you are.

A good public image opens doors, helps you feel at ease and more confident. People notice those with social style, charisma and grace. These skills help others feel good about you, want to be close to you and want to include you in endless opportunities.  Often rising success can be very stressful. Personal strength, a positive attitude, maturity, skill in handling difficult people and situations become vital tools for growth and opportunity.
This journey requires the skill of communication, professionalism, how the talent industry works, the tools needed to excel and how to perform within those guidelines. Understanding how to present a powerful first impression, social poise, and charisma are the elements of MODE and Mode attracts success!

Learning elements of Mode is like learning the steps to a wonderful dance. Once you know the technique, with a little practice and passion you’ll be able to express freely your own personal style with the joy of knowing your showing the world your very best.
Talent is not rare. What is rare is the courage to see your talent through. May this information inspire courage and help you reach for the stars to achieve your grandest dreams.
