Remember Your Image

Even Storm Troopers know.

Image is important no matter what anyone tells you. No I am not talking about how expensive your clothes are or car is, I am talking about how you present yourself to the world. Today, we are going to hit on some key issues with image and how to make sure you keep yourself looking good.

Everyone thinks that image is just how you look, when in reality it’s how you act and go about your day. Now, looks do come into play, don’t undermined them either.  In fact, we will discuss the looks issue first.

The trick to do this is dress the part of the job, if you are needed to be in a suit and tie, do it, if you need to be in overalls to clean the plant, do it! But dress the part on the same level your coworkers do, but with your own style. Don’t be a drone, be yourself, but yet dress similar to the rest.

Then there is something I am noticing more and more of lately. One issue is placing your company name on your car or work car then allowing someone to drive it. Now if this person speeds, cuts people off, tailgates, doesn’t use a turn signal, etc., are they really someone you want promoting your company? Or are you the owner doing this with your car?

Here’s the deal, you drive around and present yourself like a jerk people are going to notice. These leads to people not liking you, because your company is full of people who are rude and can’t drive. This is how you loss customers without even noticing it. Many times I have heard people say, I am not buying from company X because every time their van pulls up behind me we get scared.

This is image and how you are viewed by the world. If you worker doesn’t care how you look, than it’s time for a talk. Showcasing your name around town with a car or even work uniforms should have your employee/owner play the part of being  professional. Does that mean you drive slower and safer then normal, yes, does that mean you shouldn’t go to a bar with the coaching staff of your college sports team and make a fool of your whole staff and team. It’s all just how you look and act that part.

Yes, image is important and how you look is too. No one wants to buy from a person who has a beat up car with the company name on it or do they wanna buy from the guy in jeans with holes in them plus a dirty company polo. It all comes down to how you act the part, if you come off looking like a jerk people aren’t going to buy from you. Now if you come off looking like a professional, nice man/woman, then people are more likely going to go your way.

Just remember to be smart and safe, don’t wear your company name to bars and start a fight. Don’t drive your company car with the name on it causing issues on the road. Finally, just dress the part and walk the walk. Don’t fake it, be yourself, but don’t be a jerk.Remember image shows pride in yourself and pride goes a long way in life.

Remembering your image is key in this Savage World; that you are no longer living in, but beginning to own!
