Your image needs to be a priority in your direct sales marketing plan. It makes a significant impact on your potential success. Unfortunately, many direct sales representatives do not take this into account and go to their appointments looking as if they came back from the unemployment line. Having a great image does not mean you are relegated to wear a stuffy suit. It is important, however, that you develop a sense of style that not only reflects what you have to sell, but exudes an aura of success. Here are some tips on how to create your personal look that will make you stand out from your competitors:
Decide what you want to project with your image. Are you in an artistic field or one with a more corporate image? Add accessories to your wardrobe that are conversation starters. Find an gorgeous scarf, an interesting pair of glasses or a sharp lapel pin. It is possible to create a million dollar look even if you shop at the local discount store. If you are waiting in line at the post office, there is a greater chance that a person may remark on how you look and start a conversation that could lead to a booking.
Your hair is your crowning glory. Make sure to have a flattering haircut. If you have not had a compliment on your hair in over 3 months, it is time for a new style. Do not wear the same look you had in high school, especially if you are over a certain age. Healthy, shining hair is more appealing than spiked or sprayed.
Practice good grooming. If you are woman, wear some makeup. It does not have to be heavy handed or a professional makeup job. Create the appearance of a radiant, healthy glow with at least some lip gloss and mascara. For both men and women, make sure your grooming is immaculate. Go easy on cologne but make sure that you smell fresh. The current trend for fingernails is short, manicured with a natural tint or buffed.
Do not show up at appointments, networking events or presentations wearing jeans and tennis shoes. It looks like you do not care about your business and that you are not taking it seriously. Find a couple of quality outfits that you can wear and accessorize. They will be well worth the investment. Look out for dangling strings, missing buttons and faded material.
Think classy and not tacky. Shoes and purses can make a mediocre outfit into smashing outfit. Shoes need to be polished and not worn down. Stay away from anything reeking of cute. Goofy tote bags, silly pens, and photo bags are designed for consultants in the lower levels of your company. If you want to be on top, dress like the top 3 percent who enjoy million dollar lifestyles.
My personal pet peeve: There is nothing as unattractive and un-classy as someone chewing gum in public. I have always wanted to video tape gum chewers and intersperse their shots with those of cows. Gum chewing is annoying to listen to and looks awful. Pop a mint or use a breath spray instead. Let's not even get into smoking. That goes without saying.
This may be controversial: Another attribute that does not add to a professional image is morbid obesity. I am saying this knowing that I need to lose weight myself. I do not believe a person needs to be rail thin like models in fashion magazines, however, if you are a hundred or more pounds over your ideal weight, it is simply unhealthy. Start scheduling walks or some sort of exercise into your daily schedule and ban junk food from your life. Eat smaller portions. Obesity is a calling card for low self confidence and does not radiate success. You want to be alive to enjoy the fruits of your labor.
Language makes a difference in how you are perceived by others. Do you use slang, cuss words or sound like you came out of the back woods? A great way to improve your skills is to record yourself and listen to how you speak to others. Take a speech class or join Toastmasters if necessary. When you rise to the top 3 percent of your direct sales business you will need to speak in front of groups of people. Start practicing now.
Your image is a crucial part of your direct sales marketing success. Show your customers, prospects and team members that you pay attention to details and are on your way to the top. They will respect you more and your income will show it.

To little respect to place his hand over his heart during the Pledge of Allegiance?
When Obama stopped wearing the flag pin on his lapel…I said, to each his own…no big deal.....but now he has refused to place his hand over his heart while the Pledge of Allegiance is being recited…
How can you show so little respect to the country of your birth, a country who’s liberties allowed you to reach so many goals, a country you are asking the American people to let you lead?
How are we supposed to teach our children to respect our flag and honor our country, when our elected officials refuse to do so.
Is there an award for the most lame rebuttals from the left….I think we have a couple of contenders. I have never seen such irrational rationalizations in my life
There things in this world that seem to be too complex to solve! Talk about corruption, favouritism among others, that are characteritics of the governments today.
If such behaviors and alike are eliminated, then I will be possible to up bring our children well, respecting and honoring the National flags.
It remains a responsibility of the public to teach the children morals. The Public must sight out those that error (ill character leaders) so that they may be prosecuted. the will help act as examples.
The information below will help while educating the children the meaning of a flag, respect and honor of the flag.
(Case study USA)
Love for the flag in the hearts of all true patriotic Americans is a logical corollary and natural incentive to the love of our country. Our glorious Stars and Stripes can only be the object of enthusiasm, affection, respect and endearment on the part of all Americans.
The Strange "Right" to Insult Our Country
Our imagination goes back to the Pacific Theater of the Second World War. In March, 1945, the brave American Marines after an arduous campaign against the Japanese troops are completing their conquest of Iwo Jima. They are now at the apex of their victory. On their heights of Mount Suribachi, or valiant soldiers raise the national flag with dedication, zeal and energy, thus announcing to all that American power has triumphed again.
The scene is both heroic and serene. Our national colors flutter festively yet unpretentiously in the wind. The soldiers, in a united effort which reveals the camaraderie of hearts beating in unison, express no sign of hatred toward the vanquished. Their only desire is to firmly secure the mast of the flag they admire so much, so that future storms would not strike it down. They raise the Stars and Stripes high so that it can be clearly seen with esteem, even from afar.
Our Flag Radiates the Honor and Glory of Our Country
To the American people it is splendor of our nation's glory. It is undoubtedly an affirmation of our strength: strength in defense of national honor, security and sovereignty; a robust strength, springing from our material abundance and from our regard for all nations. We equitably share this abundance with other people, even those just defeated and those yet to share the same fate.
In the drawing on our cover, these sentiments eloquently shine forth. There is a certain spontaneity that is not ostentatious, but rather displays the radiant beauty of strength, idealism and generosity.
Inspired by this event, artist Felix de Weldon crafted the U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial near Arlington National Cemetery. Showing a keen psychological sense, Former President Bush chose the site of this striking sculpture to launch a national campaign to defend the flag, shortly after the Supreme Court decision sanctioning the burning of its as a First Amendment "right."
Americans, from the Atlantic to the Pacific, from the Great Lakes to the Rio Grande, see reflected in this flag their national pride, together with their own individual identity. For this reason, they love and praise it as one of the highest symbols of the country's moral and cultural values.
Is it reasonable, is it proper that an American desecrate so lofty a symbol with impunity? Or even burn it? Doesn't this suggest that he would like to destroy the country itself?
Is It among the Rights Existing in Our Country to Allow Our Honor to Be Trampled On?
If an individual who possesses the means to successfully and courageously defend himself were to allow his reputation to be tarnished without protest, we would say, at the very least, that he lacks moral sensibility. To see his own dignity trampled on should make him blush with shame! In the same vein, should a nation be defiled by allowing its honor and symbols to be treated with disrespect? Is this strange license to submit to what could be called a public and arrogant sacrilege included in the body of American freedoms?
Does the American Constitution Guarantee the Desecration of Our National Symbols?
But our Supreme Court, to which we refer here with all due respect, saw fit to rule, in the case of one Gregory Johnson who publicly burned our glorious American flag in Texas, that the First Amendment granted him this inconceivable liberty. In doing so, the court declared this highly insulting act against our country to be beyond reprimand.
Once a new generation of Americans becomes accustomed to seeing the flag disrespected and burned with this impunity, which we do not hesitate to call scandalous, tit can only cause their love respect and pride in being American, in short, their patriotism, to diminish.
Excessive Justice Constitutes a Supreme Injustice: Against this an Immense National Clamor Seeks a Remedy
An immense national clamor is needed to call the attention of our legislative authorities to the principal aspects of this offensive act to our nation. The general principles of morals and justice are above all writing law. Denying this would amount to denying the wise maxim of Roman law: "Summum jus, summa injuria" (The strict interpretation of the law may be the height of injustice, Cicero, De Officiis, I, 10).
Just as those brave Marines hoisted their victorious flag atop Suribachi, this national clamor must take this legal maxim to the summit in defense of the national flag, and to bring about the adoption and ratification of an amendment to the Constitution which will guarantee, beyond any doubt, the right of the American nation not to be vilified in its own land!
Amend the Constitution: Save the Honor of the Flag!
Some might consider it inadvisable to amend the Constitution, since it is the basic legal monument on whose immutability rests the very stability of the nation itself. We respect the opinion of those who think this way. We promptly add, however, that we are not convinced by this argument because we are among those who believe the nation's stability rests less upon the unchanging nature of its laws than upon the respect, love and enthusiasm with which her children honor her.
What would our Constitution's solidity and vigor be worth, we ask, in a nation where attacks against the flag and honor multiply? And in a nation where such deplorable acts, becoming ever more frequent and routine due to their very impunity, would be viewed with indifference by a population made cynically by the loss of moral sensibility?
Amend the Constitution: Save the Country
What would happen in those critical hours, which, as history teaches us, not even the most prosperous, generous, or strongest nations are spared, if patriotic sentiment should sink so low? What courage would be left to fight, be it in peace or war?
Thus, the fate of the nation itself calls for an urgent measure to repair this breach opened by the decision of the Supreme Court, which found or supposed it found a basis for its action in the First Amendment to our Constitution.
We recall, in this regard, yet another supreme principle of law which is valid for all peoples, at all times, in all places: "Salus populi, suprema lex" (The welfare of the people is the supreme law, Cicero, De Legibus, III, 9).
Let Us Unite and May God Help Us
In thus proclaiming its thoughts and sentiments, the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) cordially address all public figures, associations, groups or currents of opinion who have already spoken out, or plan to address this issue, in order to propose a concerted action for this high purpose. We beseech Divine Providence for Its paternal and decisive support so that the wishes of so many good Americans triumph, and so that this country retain the inalienable right not to suffer attacks against its honor.
I hope this Infomation will help you, your children and the society.
