Dear Friend, can we talk?
If you are like me you’ve probably been searching for ways to make yourself happier, healthier, younger or prettier. Or, maybe you have been searching for that perfect mate or, to become better educated or more financially secure.
Well, I have too. In fact – for more than thirty years – I have been compiling all types of information on both personal and spiritual development. I was on a personal inward journey, desperately trying to figure out who I was. I asked family. I asked friends. I asked the Church. I received the standard answers, a pat on the head and was told “Don’t worry, have faith”. But faith wasn’t answering my questions, and I had many. I started to read books and attend classes on subjects that had always interested, but also confused, me.
I thought that if I could physically see whatever the “bee in my bonnet” was at that time; there would also be someone who knew the answers to my questions, right? Wrong! I was only beginning to find out how wrong that assumption was.
As I looked around, I realized I wasn’t alone in the wilderness of conflicting ideals and theories. This made me wonder just who they are and what gave them the right to remake me in their image? This led to several years of intense studying. Everything came into question, from ideals to all kinds of theories and concepts.
Let me introduce myself.
My name is Janice E. Addams. I’m a 5’10” model with long strawberry blond hair, legs that don’t quit and a bosom that only Christina Hendricks could challenge. I have large brilliant blue eyes, the face of an angel and a body built to please…
OK, reality check!
Actually, I’m an attractive, green eyed, 5’ 4” brunette. My body was built to climb trees, swim, play sports and generally compete with other guys. As you may have guessed, I was and to a certain degree still am, a Tom Boy. It is with this background that I went in search of me. I was not like other girls. I didn’t like playing house unless it was designing or decorating it. Oh, I played with Barbies. Actually, I created a town house out of an old étagère’ complete with a garage, kitchen, living room, bedroom and all the appropriate handmade furniture and accessories.
I was totally absorbed with the project until it came to playing with the dolls. Not only did it feel weird holding these perfect specimens but, what was I suppose to do with them? In addition, talk about a let down – I thought I would grow up to look like that – Yeah right!
I read everything I could get my hands on, took numerous courses and then applied the knowledge I gleaned both personally and professionally! It was a long road with many twists and turns of self-discovery. I have finally found peace after over three decades of being very obsessed with my pains and passions. I now LOVE, ACCEPT and RESPECT myself for how I look and who I am both personally and professionally! On this website and in my book – Discovering Your Inner Style – 8 Steps to G.U.R.U. I’ve merged the two seemly uncommon areas.
I have learnt that to feel fulfilled spiritually you have to value yourself physically and marry those two bodies into one to spiral your growth inside and out!

What Others Are Saying…
Looking pulled together is hard enough, but creating a look that truly reflects your inner personality is rare. Jan makes it seem so easy and logical with her clothes clock and clothing inventory sheet. I don’t have to worry about what to wear any more. I keep it on the wall in my closet, and take it with me when I go shopping.
Jan’s approach made a sometimes painful and frustrating process easy and insightful! Now I am wearing all the clothes in my closet and friends say that I am looking better than ever!;;;

This book is an inside look into you as an individual: putting a finger on why we make the colour and style choices that we do. I don’t wonder if I am in style any more. I know that as long as I honour my body shape, lifestyle and personality, I will always be in style! Knowing your inner style, will bring balance to your wardrobe and to your life.

As a design student, this book has taught me a lot that the schools failed to teach me. It’s a more realistic approach to help clients discover and understand what their style is.I have seen her use the style test, and honestly, she’s been correct 100% of the time!
Jan Addams does an excellent job of guiding her readers through the mine field of discovering their inner style, by incorporating their physical characteristics, with their personality and attitude. Discovering Your Inner Style, helps them to present an image that truly reflects who they are with self-assurance and authority.
