When you walk into a room, whether you are at a networking event, meeting a client, or being interviewed for a new position, first impressions count.

When you smile people look at you in a different way, but if you appear bored or angry, they will obviously be wary of you.

You don’t have to spend a lot of money on your clothes, as long as you look smart and your clothes are appropriate for business.

Always have your business card ready after the handshake introduction and wait to be asked to sit down, by the other person.

Making a great first impression is very important because not everyone will give you a second chance, and this is not fair but the way of life today.

Know something about the business organization and person you are meeting beforehand that will impress them and it helps you with the conversation.

Above all, make sure you have a good nights sleep, something to eat so your stomach does not grumble, and feel happy inside and out, that way your true personality will shine through.
