Credibility and Professionalism

What you look like speaks louder than what you say! To be sure you are perceived as credible, honest, and knowledgeable, dress in HARMONY with yourself. Don’t follow the examples set by the fashion industry which dresses its models in CONTRAST. Dressing in contrast sells the clothes. Dressing in harmony sells YOU. By dressing in harmony with yourself, your clothes support your verbal message and ensures your eyes will walk into the room first, not your shirt, tie, or suit. So, if you have light hair and light eyes, your suit should be a lighter shade. If you have dark hair and dark eyes, your suit should be a darker shade. This means that blondes should never wear black for their most credible look. Black is a “power” color only if you have black/brown or silver hair and dark brown eyes!

How to Succeed
I was listening to Fox & Friends this morning and noted the interview with the authors of "Succeed on Your Own Terms," Mr. Greenberg and Mr. Sweeney. The gist of the first question they ask their readers to consider is their definition of success. One year from now how will you know if you were successful? They also noted that in the hundreds of interviews conducted before they wrote the book, the people interviewed had a common thread. Each considered themselves successful because they had crafted a career based on their passions, strengths, and skills. Just imagine! Being successful depends on being true to yourself! To find out more about choosing a career that lines up with who you are, let's talk! There is a way to know this information about yourself!

How to Find Mr. or Mrs. Right

I am studying right now with a group of 10 wonderful single women. We are studying the book, How to Find Mr. or Mrs. Right by Tom and Beverly Rodgers.

Drs. Rodgers say that love at first sight isn't really love. It's a chemical in your brain called phenylethylamine (PEA) that gives you that head over heels, giddy feeling. Your body is able to produce it and keep you on a "high" for about 3 years. After that it wears off and couples think they don't love each other any more. Your body can become addicted to PEA which is why some people go from relationship to relationship, falling in love again and again, about every 3 years.

So far, our group has determined we need to date a man for at least 3 years before we marry or else be really prepared for the second stage of the relationship - REALITY.
