Watch Your Back (and land a new client)

Reminiscing to my days in college, I had this peculiar rule on test days: I would always dress myself in feeling amazing. Other students, dressed in their pajamas of crusted mindsets and lazy eyes, asked about it. I used to say it favored me with extra “UMPH.”
And it’s true, because it does. What you don is what you deal to your mind. I waken grace and faith when I energize myself with the hijab (scarf) and gear myself with reign in a chic outfit.
Hijab gives me extra UMPH as a Muslim and my reigning outfits gives me extra UMPH as an entrepreneur.
When you dress the part, you become the part. In fact, taking this measure helped me land a new client.

So, anyone else detect this energy?

    Hi Nadia

    Its definitely true, if ever Im doing a phone interview I always dress up as though it was an interview in person ( maybe i’d skip on the tie).
    Definitely some psychology at play there.
    If you mean business, you gotta dress for business – even if it’s just for yourself.
    Just wondering do you do this blog design yourself? It’s really great :)

      Wa Alaikum Assalam Joe,

      Yeah, definitely a small psychological way to amp up the power and confidence.

      Yes, I did do the design myself and thank you very much. I’m quite proud of it. :)
