It’s important how you present yourself. The bottom line is, your outward appearance is how you represent yourself when you are face-to-face with the world. When you are a business owner, how you personally look is how your brand looks. YOU represent your BRAND.
As a business owner and professional, you want to make sure that your personal image exudes the same message that you want your business to convey. You need to be purposeful about how you dress. How you look is important for your brand to be accepted and successful. What message are you advertising?
As you did for your business website, consider for yourself what your personal tagline is. What communicates the authentic you? What key phrase would you say defines who you are as a brand? What is your energy, you passion, your goal, your inner style? I believe that your business brand (or corporate brand) needs to match your personality so that you can accurately and confidently build your success on a solid foundation. If you are floundering with who you are and what you represent, your business will as well.
And while your style is extremely personal and constantly evolving, you need to make sure it is congruent with your business brand.
Even if you are an employee of someone else, you are still your own one-person business and you represent who you are by your actions, how you talk and yes, what you look like.
Three seconds. Three seconds is all the time you have to make a first impression. A first impression can define you (whether you like it or not!)
When you step out your front door each day, you are telling the world what to expect from you without even speaking. You might be saying, “I’m tired. I’m unorganized. I’m always late.” OR, you might be saying, “I’ve got it together! I’m a professional! I take care of myself and I am able to help you with your needs too!”
Which message would you prefer to send?
