First Impressions are Lasting Impressions! The IMPORTANCE of presenting yourself well

Good morning everyone ...

I hope all is well in your life today and that you make today the absolute best day you possibly can!

Today I want to "rant" about all the absolute GARBAGE ads / ad copy I see marketers posting online everyday ....  Scary stuff!

Look people ...You're putting yourself out there as a business person and trying to motivate others to follow you and / or join whatever opportunity you're promoting ... Don't look like a jackass!

The biggest mistakes I see are .... Bad Grammar and Spelling!

For God's sake people, learn how to speak / write properly in whatever your native language is!  Do not use "street talk" slang, ebonics, or text message style abbreviations like "LOL" and "OMG" .. Speak / write like a person who has some type of education and is knowledgeable about what they are promoting!

Think about it .... You're out there trying to convince other people that you're a "professional" and / or a person of integrity and capable of helping them be successful .. Do you honestly believe that anyone is going to lend any credibility to you / your product if you can't even speak to them on a somewhat intelligent level?

If you can't take yourself seriously / presently yourself CORRECTLY, why would you even presume to believe anyone else in the WORLD will?

If you're putting together ad copy ...PROOF READ IT before putting it online!! Spelling errors, etc make you look stupid and nobody wants to work with / be led by a stupid person!

If you're making a video for YouTube or your website ... look good! Dress appropriately, choose a pleasant, appealing background, etc .. BE PRESENTABLE!! 

Case and point, I watched a couple of marketers video's this morning and I could not believe what I was seeing ...

One guy looked like some unshaven, poorly groomed hippie and another frankly looked like a freakin serial killer!  Yet these two "marketers" (I use the term loosely as I wouldn't buy anything from either of them) were out there trying to "sell" me the illusion that they were fabulously successful (the hippie claimed he was "famous" online) and the serial killer was sitting in a poorly lit, gloomy, depressing room wearing a T-shirt and baseball cap .....

Needless to say, neither of these people impressed  me as either successful or believable ...two attributes that are extremely important when selling anything / presenting yourself - Period!

Are you familiar with the "laws of attraction?"

If you look like a loser, why would anyone else think differently?
If you're to lazy to take the extra time required to put on a nice shirt and / or use spell-check  what would lead me (or anyone) to think that you'd be "different" when it came to running your business / taking care of your team members?
If you present yourself like a street thug, why would I believe you a person of good character / integrity?

Do you see where I'm going with all of this?

Leadership by example people!

If you truly believe that poor grammar, spelling, personal hygiene and dress will make you successful, you're an idiot!

Clean up your act - Present yourself as an intelligent, legitimate business person and you'll be astonished by the results you achieve!

Don't over do it though .. You don't need to look like you're going to a White house ball  .. Just take a little extra time to look / sound like a person others can, will and want to believe in OK?

OK ..I'm don't ranting for today  .. I want you ALL to be successful and prosperous online and off so please, follow my advice and do the work required to make your dreams your reality!

Thanks for listening, and as always ...

Stay Positive, Stay Motivated, Stay Inspired and NEVER give up on your dreams!

Your man in the Rockies ...
