Kelly Hu owes her successful career to the training program at The Sears Discovery (Charm) School (Sears Roebuck & Company). Established in the late 1970's, Sears Discovery School provided self-development for young women. The intensive workshop covered topics in : Hair, Skin, Make-up, Wardrobe, Exercise, Posture, Voice and Modeling. There are two bonus sections in the book: A diary to track your progress and a "special" section in the back on "how to have charisma".
Though the workbook was created in the late 70's, many of the tips and techniques mentioned are still very applicable in today's modern world. The most valuable part of the book is the very last section titled: "Your Voice, Your Confidence, Your Image, Your Personality". It’s easy to think a beautiful face and figure are the answer to everything. But in reality they are not. They help, but if those mysterious inner qualities are missing you can be sure the total effect can be less than terrific. Its true, attractive people do have a certain advantage over people who may not be as beautiful but if you have that "special touch", that you exude, people pick up on those vibes. Have you ever noticed how a beautiful girl can ruin her attractive image when she opens her mouth? If her voice is unpleasant or babyish; or talks about herself all the time, she no longer seems lovely! At the same time an average girl can come off fabulously by projecting a bright personality with a warm pleasant voice . Your voice and speech and attitude can draw people to you or turn them off. You can begin to see how important it is to learn to express the ‘inner you’ that’s beyond make-up and personality. The word charisma can best describe that quality. The Charisma section of the book is highly recommended reading for people who are interested in learning about how to obtain that "special magic"...something that Kelly Hu definitely posesses! Listen to her voice. Look at her photographs. If you have read the article on The Fans of Kelly Hu Homepage, Kelly says that her mother signed her up for the only modeling course that she could afford..."The Sears Charm School and it paid off... I learned a lot from them. I wanted to learn so much that I was like a sponge, I absorbed everything that they told me, and I worked on it. I worked a lot". What makes this training so unique and unlike any other training are the exercises and application. I have personally applied the Sears Workbook/Training and as strange as it may seem, it really works!!
