When you were a kid, the adults in your life talked to you about the importance of good hygiene. When you went looking for a job, people told you about ironing your clothes and making sure you ‘looked the part.’ But how often do you stop and ask yourself whether you are making a good first impression still today? Here are a few things I’ve recently noticed in others that might be worth making sure you aren’t guilty of… Too much cologne/perfume, wrinkled clothes, wet shirt underarms, strong smokers/coffee breath, looking away when someone is speaking directly to you and not listening. Pay attention. Give others a version of you that they welcome meeting!
