Nobody ever said it was going to be an easy walk. Entrepreneurship is not for the faint-hearted. The ability to stand up to the challenges that come with this path that you have chosen, balancing the books, handling your staff and petting your clients all come with the title.
As much as these can be strenuous, it is important to your business to look good while you are at it!
PLAY WITH COLOURS
Except you made a personal pact with your favorite color to love and to hold in sickness and in health, then you need to play with colours and patterns. Monochrome prints, LBD, polka dots, stripes – keep them close and have some fun.
Your skin say a lot about how meticulous you are. Take time to cleanse and exfoliate. Care for your skin. It’s yours, and no one else can take care of it for you. We’re in Africa, and in this part of the world, a lot of people still equate good looking skin with successful women. And if that woman is an entrepreneur, it may just mean she has a lot of business coming in, which means she is good at what she does.
We know you got that killer figure and all, but except your boobs and fresh thighs can go in the shopping cart along with all the other products or services you offer, keep them off the display when you’d be meeting with clients or investors.
You know the drill. Makeup makes you look good. Confident. But if it’s too much, you may just get more than what you bargained for. So keep this in mind and always apply makeup to enhance your beauty. The rainbow was a symbol of covenant between God and Noah. Don’t try to recreate it on your face.
Bad news spreads like wildfire. And this kind of news will make the tabloids. It will break the Internet. It could even make breaking news on TV. The story of that fine girl with the 3Bs – Beauty, Brains, and Bad breath! Damn. That didn’t even sound nice.
Your hair can make or mar an outfit. Whether it’s your natural hair, or it’s artificial, pay some attention. Keep it well oiled, combed or packed properly and neatly. You just never know who is looking.
People don’t like to admit it, but first impression matters. A whole lot. For people to take you serious, you must first show them that you take yourself serious. Believe it or not, everything else comes after!
