More Than a Pose: Navigating the Varied Definitions of a Model.

Let me tell you there are many meanings of “model”. Or better stated there are many impressions of what a “model” is. Back to that diversity thing again. It depends on the experience and background of who you ask.

Your mom and dad (another story for another day) have their impression of a “model”. Your friends and acquaintances definition can vary considerably. So being the curious one, I looked up the word “model” in several dictionaries. Here is what I found from Collins Dictionary, a major publisher for over 200 years.

A model of an object is a physical representation that shows what it looks like or how it works. The model is often smaller than the object it represents.

A model is a system that is being used and that people might want to copy to achieve similar results.

A model of a system or process is a theoretical description that can help you understand how the system or process works, or how it might work.

I like that! Let me explain!

I am physical! Before choosing to represent a product, service or destination I will do my research and be able to tell you how it works and why. That curious thing again!

Well, I am not a system that others will want to copy, but I do strive to lead a joyful life that includes sharing myself in a way that others may want to emulate, experience and witness. Whether it is my interaction with others, the clothes and jewelry I wear, the services I endorse or places I like to visit.

My Grandmother might say that delivering a good product or service has become theoretical in today’s world. Not theoretical for me, it is a promise!

So here it is! My definition of a model.

“A person that represents a product, service or destination in a committed, confident, and positive way.
Both verbally and visually. In a pleasing and unassuming way and thus naturally creating a call to action from others.”
