Hey, Lisa Frank (lol)! Ah, 90s nostalgia. Anyhow, today, I start my new job. I'm thankful for the opportunity, and more than anything I want to make a good impression. The job seemed excited to have me, and I plan to do my best. One thing my friends and family say about me is I'm always looking to better myself, which includes getting to the next step in my career. Just as we plan to make a good impression on the job, I think we should do the same with our crafts on the side. By craft, I mean our entrepreneurship. Below I’ve listed some ways of how we can make good impressions as entrepreneurs.
Dress the part. For example, I’m a young adult author, so I know I don’t need to dress up, like I’m doing a business briefing, when I’m at vendor events.
Know your audience. Whenever I’m attending events, I try to keep my audience in mind. I want my readers to enjoy my work and be able to relate.
Take a chance. Sometimes, being an entrepreneur is trial and error, just like applying for a job. Maybe you might not get the job, but that just means there’s better opportunity out there. You must be prepared.
If you keep these three things in mind, then you’ll make an awesome first impression. So, go out there and be great!
