Guide to How to Act Like a Businessman
So, you want to look important? Successful? Busy? Then
you want to be like the businessmen you see all around you. The one
walking to the boardroom. The one sitting in the first class lounge at
the airport. Or the one getting into the BMW. You have come to the right
place! Not everyone has the same keen business sense Donald Trump has
been blessed with, but we can all look like we do!
Buy a suit. It doesn't have to break
the bank, just one that's smart, and preferably a dark one. Also,
the tie should be silk or of a similar material that makes you look
Obtain a mobile phone or PDA. Again,
it doesn't have to be expensive, but make it chic. Get one in black
or silver, not pink. And when you are around people, make
sure you are on it a lot.
Buy an analogue watch. Business men
are never late, either. If you are meeting someone, then be on time,
not too early, not too late. Just on time. Try to get a watch that
looks good and matches your suit.
Buy a pair of shoes that matches your
suit, and care for it well.
Get some cuff links that aren't
showy, but make people think "Oh, they are nice."
Buying a briefcase and filofax isn't
necessary, but it conveys importance and a busy schedule.
Wash and be well groomed. Rich,
successful businessmen do not walk around looking like tramps. Shave
and comb your hair.
Smile, but not as if you are hiding
something. Walk in a determined manner, not fast but not slow. Walk
as if you have somewhere to be.
If you really want to look good, get
a nice car, like a Mercedes or BMW. This isn't necessary, though.
Speak with Confidence. Do not be over
bearing, but always sound confident in your speech. If you do not
know an answer do not attempt to pretend. Just state confidently, "I
do not know, but I will find out for you."
