Modelling is a great stepping stone for people who have a passion for fashion. A long career in modelling can help you build a great network of contacts which will come in handy should you want to go into any fashion related business in the future. Modelling, in all honesty, is an ephemeral career - all the spotlight and the deals have a very short lifespan - and so having an eye on the future is a very wise move.

When your body succumbs to the stress of ageing and you are no longer able to make a living with your face and figure, you need a business to keep you going - and modelling provides that platform to set you up for that kind of life.

  • Modelling builds self confidence

Modelling is perhaps one of the purest forms of the art of show-business. It’s business about showing up, being visible, appealing and assertive; and these are things that are only achievable with self confidence. To be a great model, you will need to unleash your inner fierceness and fearlessness, and this process helps you to overcome common human handicaps such as inferiority complex and insecurity.

  • Modelling is lucrative

Modelling, if managed well, can be a very lucrative business venture. Under the right management, a model can land a single deal that can feed her and her team for a whole year or even more. It’s all about having a strong brand backed by a competent and well-connected management. Forget about the myth of it being very low-paying: the people propagating this theory are not doing it right.

  • Modelling makes you healthier

Modelling helps you to become fully aware your body and how to properly maintain it.. Due to the fact that a model always has to be in shape for gigs, a routine of health consciousness is enforced: regular water intake, dieting and exercising becomes the norm, and this can only add a lot of value to the model. This is not to mention other practices of mental and skin health too: all these prolongs life expectancy.

  • Modelling involves hard work

Most people become models because they see only the glitz and glamour. They want to have fun globetrotting and basking in luxury; but in fact this is an art that involves a lot of hard work to make it work. Only a select few of models will ever get to the highest echelons of stardom, all because it takes way more than looking good to make a mark. A model must put in the work, the long hours of practice to perfect the craft, to hone all the skills needed to make an impact.

There is very little rest and no room for complacency, as trends are always changing and clients are always demanding for things that push boundaries. This sort of high-pressure feel is healthy for humans because it keeps us sharp and on our toes. Success in life comes only after a basic foundation of hard work - a value that every serious human needs - and trust that the world of modelling is a hotbed of hard work.

  • Modeling is a proper career

Modeling is a whole career on its own: it requires a highly concentrated skill-set and the same level of dedication that other ‘mainstream’ careers demand. Contrary to the common stereotype, modelling is not a second-rate, part-time venture: it is a serious occupation that is vital in the scheme of societal needs and, when done right, it can be lived on without any problems - just like any other ‘regular’ job. Even better, unlike other traditional career options such as medicine, law, engineering et al - modelling comes with perks that make it feel surreal. There is way more fun and exposure. Doubt it? The proof is in the pudding: give it a go and see how it goes.
