We love this tip and it completes another word in our advent countdown.
Aw, we love this one, as not just because we’re in the commercial photography world (although it does help make for a good corporate headshot!).
The best tip ever though came from a relative (Rachel’s brother Rich) who runs a successful business employing 30+ people. One of his key mantras to his team is ‘When you pick up the phone, Smile’. No, people can’t see you, but they can tell if you’re smiling. And it’s true. No want wants to do business with a miserable person who tells you their problems at the first opportunity.
When you walk into a networking meeting, other people don’t want to know if you’ve been stuck in traffic or if you had a bad nights sleep. So, no matter how tough it is, find ways to stay positive (see tip 2 and tip 5 for how to do this!).
