OUR GIFT TO YOU
My site is the story of my business of 28 years in Santa Barbara, CA. It was a Professional Training School and Model/Talent Agency. From among those who took the training, I selected those who wanted to become professional models or actors and placed them with my agency. Many of La Belle’s professional models and talent worked not only locally but also in Los Angeles, New York, Paris, England, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Tokyo.
The course material used to train the models and actors was created and enhanced through the years and became what we now call a curriculum for the development of self-esteem. Models and talent must go through interviews before each job they receive. Therefore they have to understand and accept rejection as part of their professional life. The ability to understand this and use rejection as training rather than as a put down and loss is mandatory.
This curriculum is given on the site at no charge along with photos of the facility we used, our staff, before and after shots of students, and of fashion shoots and fashion shows.
Although our photos are from the years my school and agency was open, the training is everlasting. The need for self-esteem exists in all professions as well as in our private lives. Use it as you please and share what you learn with others.
