How to get noticed in a world full of distractions.

Chances are not everyone in your life appreciates who you are and what you are worth. So the question is how can you rise above the crowd and finally get noticed? It’s important to remember people don’t invest in businesses, they invest in people.

Here's three things you can do to make sure that people are really listening.

  • Be brief, but well spoken. Keep it simple! Jerry Seinfeld says it's all about the economy of the expression. He'll spend hours shortening a joke from 8 words to 5 because the easier something is to understand, the better you will communicate and in Jerry's world, you will get more laughs. 
  • Always say please and thank you. Manners are a rarity these days. brush up on your bedside manner with this cool book
  • Dress for success. You don't have to wear a tuxedo to a company BBQ,  instead wear what's appropriate, but make sure you dress one level above what everyone else will be wearing. If everyone will be wearing a t-shirt, try a button up short sleeve.
