First Impressions don't Matter

They lied to you. They LIED to us! Making a “good first impression” won’t get you the job. It won’t get you the client. It won’t even stop your business card from ending up in the trash. 🗑 🥲

Before I explain, SAVE this post for later. Trust me you’ll need it.

We’ve been taught that all we need to make a “good first impression” is:

1️⃣ Smile & creepy direct eye contact

2️⃣ Firmly shake someone’s sweaty hand (Ok, it’s actually my hands that are sweating because I’m hella nervous).

3️⃣ Let them lead the conversation & agree to all their words.

And while that’s not terribly terrible advice, it’s just not enough to get you a seat at the table.

So what is it that you need to do? Create a LASTING impression.

✅ Give them a reason to remember you.

✅ Confidently define what YOU do best.

✅ Connect over your shared passions.

🏆*Pro Tip* Reiterate the main topic of the the event/conversation and THEN you gracefully SLIDE into your personal introduction.
