Just met a wannabe businesswoman who looks absolutely nothing like the photo on her website, FaceBook page, phone icon, etc. I reckon she was using a photo from at least two hundred years ago, that made her look young and slender.
In reality, her hairstyle and colour have dramatically changed, she’s 10 – 15 years older, and is no longer at her fighting weight.
I couldn’t concentrate on a word she was saying because, all the time, I was thinking, “As a businesswoman, does she really think she can get away with presenting one image online and actually be something completely different in real life?”
Women talk about these things (surely not!) so after this poor woman had left, one of the other attendees angrily said, “What a fraud that woman is! She doesn’t think she’s going to get me to do any business with her, when she can’t even be honest about who she is!”
How you present yourself is your brand. What you wear, the car you drive, your home are all reflections of you.
People buy from people.
Or not – as this poor self-delusional woman will have already discovered today.
