arms crossed over their chest Not likely. Make sure you use eye contact a firm handsha e and an open stance. Have good posture uncrossed arms and fidgeting If you suffer from resting bitch face make sure youre smiling at least with your eyes. 3. GOOD HYGIENE Youll never make a good impression if you resemble Pigpen from the comic strip Peanuts. Clean bodies clean hair and fresh breath might seem like a no-brainer but if you have ever been around someone with bad breath or B.O. you know not everyone has the same standards of cleanliness. If something is truly a problem consult a doctor. Conversely too much of a good thing is not a good thing Ever been around an old lady and choked on her perfume Our noses can become accustomed to certain smells so much so that we do not smell them anymore. If you have worn the same cologne or perfume for any length of time you might become immune to the scent. Less is more And if you are a smoker quit your nose can become immune to that smell as well. Air it out 4. CLOTHES If youve ever heard the expression clothes make the man you might be surprised to learn that it is right When looking to advance in the corporate world start by dressing for the job that you want not necessarily the job that you have or a date a party or any other first meeting dont veer away from clothes that express who you are but keep in mind the setting and take into consideration that over dressing is always better than being underdressed. It is preferable to look sharp than to look like a slob Additionally be aware that accessories can sometimes be more of a distraction than an enhancement and keep them to a minimum. 5. BE ON TIME For business meetings job interviews and other important events being five minutes early is on time If you show up on time you are late. And if you show up late you are RUDE If you are the type of person that has a hard time getting places on time make sure to give yourself ample time to get there. Being up to 15 minutes early always makes a good impression. You dont want to be too early as that can be just as much an inconvenience as being late Bring a book magazine newspaper or a silent game on your phone should you need to fill some time. It is better to sit in your car on the bus stop bench train platform or office lobby for a fe minutes entertaining yourself than to be late. 6. BE POSITIVE MTFI AND STFU Nobody likes a Debbie Downer. Focusing on the positive will make them feel more comfortable and in turn make you feel more comfortable. MTFI Make Them Feel Important. Remembering a persons name is one of the main ways to make someone like you. A chemical reaction in the brain happens when you hear your name that makes you feel good. If possible remember the other names you hear their spouse their dog their kids etc. Also a person will feel more comfortable with someone they can relate to If you find out they have similar tastes in music or a common hobby they will have a more favorable opinion of you. That being said STFU Shut the Fck Up. Be a good listener. Ask questions. Get to know them. Be genuinely interested in what they have to say. People always like to be listened to and really be heard. People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel. Maya Angelou Finally make sure your phone is on silent you give compliments when they are genuine and end on a good note. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ orn and raised in ouston e as and a graduate of e or ni ersit oanna e no resides in os Angeles where she works as an actress model and writer. n er free time s e en o s s aring er isdom it u and coming ta ent coac ing c i dren of a ages for mode ing and acting. oanna is a so an a id b ogger. o earn more about oanna and er or c ec out er ebsites . aitingfor eft .b ogs ot.com and . oanna e .me. 15 WWW.FLIPMAGAZINE.NETAUGUST2015
