We hate for things to come down to appearance, but on some level, your image will affect your ability to gain clientele. How you look needs to match what you do. A person selling construction materials would look silly showing up at a site in high heels and a business suit. By the same token, your best attire for a board room meeting with a CEO and his lender is unquestionably something from Joseph A. Banks. If you clean houses for a living and you pull up in a car that has moss growing on the grill and remnants of last week’s lunch in the back seat, you might be throwing up a red flag as to your competence. If you are an interior designer for high end business offices but when you meet with your client you’re wearing snagged polyester pants and a tube top, their confidence is going to wane. You don’t have to have a lot of clothes, but a well cut business suit and shoes that gleam will tell your investment clients that you spend your money wisely and tastefully and you will do the same with theirs. We live in the west so embrace it. A skirt and jacket from Pine Country Cowgirl Boutique, accessorized with one of their fabulous handbags will help you present your professional best without looking stuffy and never underestimate the power of a great hair cut. A cut that suits you and has a clean, unfussy look tells people you put your money where it counts, and you count more than anything else in your business.
