Happy New You!

The start of a new year swells with potential for all the greatness we can accomplish over the next 365/6 days.  Considering all the resolutions, plans and hopes to achieve our goals, one of the best and most easily manageable tools we have on our side is self image.  It is all about the personal brand you build for yourself.  What face do you want to put forth, whether in person or on the Internet?  How do you want others to read you?  What reputation do you intend to establish?  A major component of this is getting a handle on etiquette, protocol, and basic manners in any situation from business to social.  The more you improve your etiquette skills, the better your image becomes.  With a more refined image comes more successful networking and greater opportunities.

Think about it!  Colleges are looking for the well behaved student who doesn’t seem like a future liability.  Employers prefer the well mannered employee who comes highly recommended and appears to have good work ethic.  Investors feel more comfortable signing over their money to the entrepreneur who presents his/herself as polished, dependable and confident.

So, look at this as your time to set your image; your brand.  You are welcomed to use this blog as your modern guide for everything from business protocol to digital etiquette, form social etiquette to fashion protocol and more.  We’ll explore together and figure out how to always present you in the best light.  Stay tuned throughout the year and if you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask them here or catch me in real time on Twitter @DrJaiCupid.

Happy New Year and cheers to a new you!

  3. Great post! This year I’ve decided to define and refine my image as well as create my own “mission statement,” the same way businesses do. Thanks for the encouragement!
