Whether we run our business or we work for someone else we need to be professional in what we do. They way we handle ourselves and we treat everyone else is a huge factor to our professional success.
First, we always need to be on time. Actually, it is a good idea to be earlier. If we have our own business and we have an appointment with a client we need to come earlier just in case our client shows up earlier. We also need to take into the calculation that the traffic pattern can change. Anyway, we need to be at the appointment place before our client arrives. If we work for someone else, we need to be at our place of work before our shift starts.
We need to look the part. We need to be dressed accordingly to the profession that we hold. Nice and neat.
It is extremely important to return a phone call as soon as possible, within 24 hours.
We need to keep our promises. If we say that we are going to do something we need to keep our word. Only promise something that you can deliver. In another case, you can say that you will do your best.
Always be polite and treat everyone with respect, whether they are our clients, our co-workers or our employees.
Appreciate everyone. We need to say thank you for things that people do for us. We need to appreciate our clients. They are the reason our business is successful. We need to say thank you to our employees. They make our business grow. One of my clients makes sure that she says thank you to very employee at the end of the day. When I worked in a private business in Australia, my boss, the owner of the business, said thank you to me every day when I finished. That makes you feel appreciated and respected.
And above all, be happy and smile. Look at every day of work as an adventure. Have fun with everything you do.
Have an absolutely magical week, full of LOVE, GRATITUDE and FUN!!!
