Does anyone care or remember what you look like?

Whilst I recognise the name, Lennie Kravitz, I admit to not having listened to his music. So why did recent reports of his live performance at Wembley Arena catch my eye?

I think it has much to do with the emphasis on his appearance some 25 years after he first played the venue. Apparently he was “dressed in trademark aviator shades, ripped denim and leather”. His image has evolved though as previously he was worn “a white catsuit and red, high-heeled platform boots”. So not consistent across the years but sufficiently well known to be recognisable and highly regarded.

Of course the real focus of each of the reviews I saw was his music, performance and showmanship. But, I submit, if he didn’t look the part this would have been held against him. He was performing largely to fans who already knew him so he had little to do to influence their views.

Attention to your Appearance is the first The 7 Principles anyone can adopt to STAND OUT from the pack. We never get a second chance to make a first impression. Do you want to come across as confident and powerful or as a nervous novice? Your Appearance has a huge impact on people who have not met you before. Many will form an instant opinion that, if it’s inaccurate, you will need to work hard to revise.

The Appearance of your online profiles will also have a similar impact. What impression will someone you don’t know get from the profile or absence of such on your website? Or of your profile on Linkedin and on social media sites? The reaction someone has will determine whether or not they then get in touch with you.
