Are You Hip or Just Unprofessional? Here are 4 quick tips to fix your business style.

Young professionals make many mistakes and can’t seem to distinguish the line between being hip and unprofessional. This article gives you five simple tips to fix your professional business style. The tips are to never wear sunglasses, don’t smoke even if you client is, don’t eat in front of the customer, have good hygiene, and most of all, know the product you are selling.

Key Takeaways:

  • Regardless of how you dress, your presentation depends on what you know. I can put you in a $5,000 suit and if you don’t know anything, you’ll just be a $5,000 idiot. Back up your professional look with knowledge.
  • Know every objection before you hear it and know how to handle it. Put everything together—great knowledge and sales skills, great attitude, and great dress, and you’ll be on your way to being a great salesperson.
  • Suit or no suit, the biggest sale you’ll ever make is the one you make to yourself.

“The more successful you look, the more successful you will be. People can get offended by a lot of things but they will never get offended by you wearing a suit.”
