Seeing my name in print…

What’s not to love about a ‘Works’ seat from Wellington to Sydney and back on Air New Zealand?

There is a reason Air NZ was again named best airline in the world last year… for the fourth year running.

They get the little things right. There is something so powerful about seeing my name in print – it made me want to share this photo with you.

Yes, you’re looking at my in-seat entertainment screen as I caught the plane from Sydney to Wellington.

When was the last time you made an effort to remember and use someone’s name?

They say that Bill Clinton was so successful because he had the gift of making you feel like you were the only one in the room.

Regardless of your politics, there is something to be said for personalised attention.

What could that mean for you this week?

I hope you’re inspired to give your staff and colleagues a little more personalised attention and let them feel that they have your complete attention.

What to wear on TV

I had a television interview last week…

In my other business as a management consultant, I’ve developed a specialist expertise, which I was interviewed about on SKY TV.

A TV interview? Help!

There were interview questions to prepare, answers to consider and another issue to resolve – what to wear.

Green screens, shiny earrings, the fact that TV apparently adds 10 pounds to your appearance….

What to wear wasn’t my first concern but I was still incredibly glad when a friend of mine was able to give me great TV interview advice AND tell me what not to wear.

So, if your career takes a turn and you find yourself with the opportunity for a TV interview, let me know and I’ll be happy to share.

* No shiny earrings or clothes
* Keep your clothing fitted, no billowing tops
* Don’t wear green in case they use a green screen behind you
* No stripes or fine patterns

Sounds strange but the whole thing was a lot of fun. I hope you get the experience.

Here is a pic of the show’s host – Jon Dee – fixing his earpiece during the ad break.

Start your week with a success booster

Here is a success booster to start your week.

We’ve all heard that your income tends to be the average of your five closest friends’ income. Or is it six? 😉

And that you can tell a person’s character by the friends they hang around with.

Does that mean that we should ditch our friends? Not at all.

Perhaps by adding, rather than subtracting, we can make positive changes to our circle of influence.

I don’t think this means ditching your friends. I do think it means embracing opportunities to meet with, hang out and talk with people who are living life how you want to live yours.

For you this might mean welcoming opportunities to talk about style more, if that’s an area of your life where you want to grow.

You may like to join my new FaceBook group: 7 Days of Style Inspiration, where you’ll find a community of women talking about style ideas. I also give daily input – you’re bound to be inspired with ideas for your style.
