It is hard to understate just how important it can be to dress right for business meetings. Often times, when one works in front of a computer for long hours, it is easy to forget that it is incredibly important the way we look. Sure, when you are simply dealing with the engineers on your team it may not matter if you show up to team meetings in jorts or a shirt with cut off sleeves.
But when it is time to present the product you have been working on for three years to potential clients, you need to come off looking the part. You do not want to look sloppy, hungry, desperate, or simply unprofessional. With the right outfit, you can convince a client simply with your body language alone that they want to trust you and your product. With the wrong personal body image, you are sabotaging your chances of success, and your whole team along the way.
Take some time to reflect on your personal appearance before you head into a meeting and make sure that you look like someone who is successful and ready to share a meaningful product with the world. Beyond investing in a great pair of shoes and a high quality business suit, you will want elegant jewelry to accompany your look.
No one is arguing for you to dress as if you are headed out on a date, but in a way you are there to woo the client. You want to convey that you are a powerful professional with the means to support yourself no matter how this deal goes. You want to bring confidence to the table. In order to do that, make sure you invest in the proper piece of jewelry from Blue Nile.
By taking time to invest in the proper jewelry, you increase your chances of success immensely. Your prospective clients will look at you and instantly register your success and level of confidence. This will inspire greater confidence in your work and the product you are hoping to sell. A little piece of jewelry goes a long way, so make sure you look the part for important business meetings.
