“You’ve got 45 seconds to a minute to establish your character on stage.”
We’ve all been told to “Dress for Success”, but too many people still don’t realize that it’s more than just about the wardrobe, or the haircut or the leather briefcase. It’s about the package, the way it all comes together to make that vital first impression.
First impressions make or break every relationship, whether professional or personal. That woman you give up your bus seat to could be your future mother-in-law or boss. That impatient jerk in the Jaguar you give the finger to from the crosswalk could be your ten-o’clock meeting with the $5,000,000 account up for grabs. There’s no way to know, so make the most of that moment. And remember to smile.
Ciao for now,
