Making Good Impression
Guide to Becoming an Impressive Man
Imagine a scenario we may have experienced in our lives; We’re in one of the shopping centers, or a hangout together with friends, co-workers, family, girlfriends, or anyone else. Then there is someone who comes up to you, with a grumpy face, suddenly thrust a brochure while asking for time to explain the product or service they sell.
What happens next? It could be with a grumbling heart that we listen to a boring presentation, but it is certain the edge is clear; we will tend to reject whatever is offered because the impression we capture is too bad for that person.
“Bruh, I was on a hangout and all of the sudden, someone asked to hear an unclear presentation, moreover the person is not polite and so grumpy!”
Yes, that’s about the grunt that we used to say. Maybe the story seems trivial. But there are important things to be aware of; How important and influential the first impression of one’s future. Not taking long, it only takes a few minutes, or even seconds, until people have an impression on us. Just imagine what happens if the impression we get on us while conducting an interview, or a meeting with a new colleague is bad? We may lose a golden opportunity to live or our business.

b. Shirt (or batik), neatly ironed black trousers, your best shoes, and a bit of perfume (with SMITH Dapper Spatter touch for your hair)
