Just a small tip

deb on the roadAppearance matters.

For years I’ve always hoped that I could just “be me”.  With the advent of the internet and working from home, that became much easier to do.

Then I decided to venture out into my community and become involved.  More people were seeing me.  A lot of folks know I’m a bit of a free spirit and feel comfortable in loose fitting clothes (hippie).

I’ve found out that there are a lot of people who don’t know me.  And first impressions are most often lasting impressions.  So I’ve added a little lipgloss, eyeliner and non-wrinkled clothes to my daily routine.  I color coordinate, put on lotion and do something with my hair. I smile a lot.

This is pretty common sense advice.  You’d be surprised how many people don’t think to do these things consistently.  A nice appearance tells a stranger that you care about yourself and that you just might care about them.
