As we prepare for next week’s release of Aru Shah and the Tree of Wishes, we’d like to introduce you to The Court of the Heavens’ number one crisis manager, Opal. And is there any crisis more pressing than damage to your personal brand?
Here are 5 tips straight from the source on how to repair your image and be your best self.
1. Keep Your Squad Tight and Consistent
“Consider how a betrayal would divide your followers. Solidarity not only sends a message that you’re actually capable of maintaining friendships, but it also shows that you’re mature enough to avoid needless strife. And, unlike a recent client of mine, don’t hang out with ten-year-old orphans. For obvious reasons.”
2. Send the Right Message
“In difficult times, it’s important to let your followers know that you’re strong, capable, and unafraid to rise to life’s challenges. Especially these days, when people everywhere are desperate for a glimmer of hope. And an absolute bombshell of a hero to deliver that hope. Let’s be real: nothing screams I’ve got this more than a killer makeover.”
3. Aesthetics, Aesthetics, Aesthetics
“You may not want to admit it, but hair and makeup send a stronger message than any inspirational Insta caption ever could. And never underestimate the power of a fierce outfit.
“What? No. Glittery jumpsuits are very much in this season. At least in Amaravati, which means in about a year, your mortal world will be filled with them.”
4. Focus on the Future
“So what if you’ve made a huge mistake, like, say, failing to destroy a powerful demon lord and thereby helping to kickstart a war that will most likely devastate the Otherworld? NBD. Nothing a little branded content can’t fix. Who can even think of death and destruction when faced with teeth that absolutely sparkle (courtesy of this toothpaste sponsor)?”
5. Lose the Talking Animal Sidekick
“Especially if it’s a pigeon. Those things are not cute. And very annoying.”
