The 2 Second Chance

The 2 Second Chance

From “Make a Great First Impression: 7 Smart Tricks” by Geoffrey James and Inc.

Research shows that customers decide whether or not they want to work with you within two seconds of meeting you face to face.

That puts the burden on you to make certain that those two seconds really count. The only way to do that is to prepare ahead of time.

These tricks may help.

 1. Keep Yourself Fit

Your energy level is dependent upon your overall level of health. If you tire easily, rest assured you’re likely to look tired–especially under the stress of an initial meeting. And if you look tired, other people will make the snap decision that you’re too tired to get the job done.

This does not mean that you need to be a bodybuilder or Hollywood thin. But you must be healthy enough to look alert, capable, and interested.

 2. Research the Culture

Different industries have different norms about what’s appropriate in terms of personal appearance and meeting behavior. For example, wearing an Armani suit to a meeting with a programmer is simply inviting silent ridicule. Similarly, different regions of the country (or the world, for that matter) have different norms. Women who wear even slightly sexy outfits can send the wrong message to managers from the Middle East, for instance. Find out what’s expected before you meet.

3. Send Clear Signals

Your semiotics are the signals that your appearance immediately communicates to other people. People make snap judgments based on clothes, accessories, and more: watches, jewelry, briefcases, makeup, skin tone, facial expression, and so forth.

As far as is practical, make sure you are consciously creating a set of visual signals that is most likely to communicate that you’re the kind of person that’s appropriate to do business with.

Do More with an Automated Accounting System

Do More with an Automated Accounting System

From “Harness the Power to Do More with Less with an Automated Accounting System”  from Sage.

How automated systems can help.

There are hundreds of transactions that occur in every business day. Without help, you can quickly lose control. You have to manage your finances, but you can’t ignore your customers, your suppliers, or your team. Rather than running yourself ragged, you can rely on an automated system to help you create order from chaos. Here are some ways the right automated system can help:

  • Eliminate duplication
  • Validate transactions
  • Enforce rules
  • Monitor results
  • Identify and correct discrepancies
  • Project future outcomes
  • Be accountable

 

Eliminate duplicate efforts

Manual systems require you to re-enter the same data mulitple times. In an automated system, you can enter data once and then re-use it. You can also set up repeating transactions to handle a number of different scenarios. Because data is reused and centralized, you reduce the likelihood of errors.

Recurring Transactions

Your accountant tells you to record the same adjustment every month. With an automated accounting system, you can create recurring journal entries so that once a month, the journal entry will be recorded in you general ledger, making your finnacial statements accurate on a monthly basis.
