50 Challenges: No. 20 – Check Your Image

I was at a networking event during the week, with a mixture of entrepreneurs and advisors. The result was a mixture of clothing styles as well, understandably. What I noticed, however, was that shoes were often scuffed, even with a suit. Having noticed this about the men, I found that it applied to some of the women as well.

This blog is mainly about careers, and the image you project will be a factor in how effective you are in your job. It may be an image of success, of professionalism, of approachability or something else (although the image should reflect substance).

Take time to take a step back and review your image this weekend . Remember that your image needs change over time, and that what met your image once may no longer do so, if only because fashions change. Or because your smart shoes get scuffed.
