I have lived in the Tampa Bay area for most of my life. I have owned my own businesses, and in my past careers I have set sales records in Pharmaceutical Sales and I'm a top performer in Real Estate. I understand what it's like to be an entrepreneur, to climb the corporate ladder, to set sales records—and most importantly—to be a strong successful woman in what is still a male-dominated world. It can be quite tricky. It's a balancing-act where you have to be tough-minded without being perceived as a ... you know ... the "b" word. This is where Image & Style Consulting can really help you.
Even though I am a tough competitive woman, I am still a girly-girl at heart. I remember playing dress up as a little girl, and I still love to do it today! I love working with all different types of clients. Everyone is different and unique, and no one consultation will be the same. I've learned this over and over in real estate. I always put my clients' needs before my own.
It doesn't matter which stage you are at in life, what your goals are, or which problems you need fixed—bring it all to me, and I will assist you. (Doing it over a glass or two of wine is not out of the question either.)
When I am not shopping and styling, I have been an active member of Working Women of Tampa Bay and have raised over $25,000 in sponsorships for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society by running marathons. I am a University of Florida graduate with a degree in Business Finance and love living in the Historic Uptown district of St. Petersburg. I am mom to a teenage son, long-haired female chihuahua, and a leopard gecko.... I think he's a boy.
I'm also a foodie that loves to cook, and eat out at great restaurants. I've been to Napa and Sonoma on wine vacations eight times. Life couldn't be better!
I can't wait to work with you! Contact me here.

Hi. I’m Kevin Godbee. Life is good. Why, you might ask? Well, I believe in living the best life you can, being happy, feeling good about yourself, and helping others do the same. When it comes to helping others, it's time to stop talking and start listening. (I learned this a long time ago in sales.) In my Image Consulting & Personal Branding business, I find out about who you are; where you've been in life, and where you want to go—then together we can craft a map for you to get there.
Here’s a little bit of info on how I got here.
I started my career working in sales, marketing and advertising in the hobby products and educational toy businesses. I’ve called on small boutique stores as well as corporate giants such as Walmart and Disney World. I always worked hard, but liked to have as much fun as possible. Back then, my co-workers told me that I reminded them of Tom Hank’s character in the movie, “BIG”. This was because when I was in the office, away from customers, I would always play with the toys and act silly. Coincidentally, if you know the movie, you may appreciate the fact that I actually called on FAO Schwarz in real life, and danced on the floor piano just like in the movie.
The entrepreneurial spirit called in the early 2000s when I started my own Internet services business offering web design and search engine optimization (SEO). I've always been a "computer geek". I became an expert in SEO and traveled the country speaking at conferences. I love things that combine elements from opposite ends of the spectrum. Even though I was a code geek, I also dove into the creative side by producing a live online radio talk show every week that had over 10,000 listeners.
I am currently a successful magazine publisher (8-years) and radio talk show producer (5-years) in the digital world.
Throughout all of this time, I’ve always LOVED getting dressed up! I enjoyed putting on a suit and having my shoes super shiny. Then I started reading tons of books on men’s style and the history of such. I initially took inspiration from executives that I worked for. Then, I was influenced by TV shows, like Mad Men. (I’ve actually interviewed one of the actors from Mad Men in a video interview.) I don’t remember which one of my friends told me to watch Boardwalk Empire, but that really threw gasoline on the fire of my “statement outfit” wardrobe growth. Here at home, people just started calling me; “The Best Dressed Man in Downtown St. Pete.”
For years now, friends and acquaintances were always asking me for style advice, and telling me I should make some type of business from my love of style and clothes. Then one day, when one of my friends was telling me he didn't like his job, I said "love what you do, and do what you love" ... and then it hit me that I needed to take my own advice. I took my years if innate style experience and combined it with a professional education which helped me refine my services in a way that provides the most value to my clients. I studied at the Studio for Image Professionals and earned Certifications in Image Consulting & Personal Branding. Whether you desire a complete makeover, or just a few tweaks, I’m your man. I look forward to working together with you to help make you the best version of yourself.
Let's take the journey together. Get in touch here.
