Interviewer: I read somewhere you mentioned that “Your clothes should be tight enough to show you are a Woman and loose enough to show you are a Lady.” Please throw some light on this phrase.
Sima: Yes, by Marilyn Monroe. I just love this, I see this as, when you say “a Woman”, she’s God made, but a Lady“, image consultant made, because being a lady is a matter of choice. A Lady is well groomed, perfect dressed, perfect poise & the message passed is: dignified, graceful, trustworthy etc. Her skills are sharpened & therefore setting an example. The word “lady”, is associated with Lady Diana, Princess of Wales. A perfect example of a lady in terms of image appearance is Perfect dress, perfect grooming, and perfect poise etc, an Icon. To make it more understandable; clothes is not what you wear, but how you wear.
Interviewer: What is your suggestion for the Startup entrepreneurs to carry themselves keeping in mind that they are representing different domains?
Sima: Startup entrepreneurs have to work bit harder, need to work on their self-image, self-confidence, capability, and credibility, as they have to get their idea across to someone else to influence opinion or action for their success of their respected domains. Intelligence, knowledge, ability, initiative, and effort are vital to success of any kind and ongoing Image management can give the personal or professional presence that one needs, as Image management is not universal , each individual has their own authentic style , & the image they carry need to match their profession & life stage.
Personal presentation (communication skills and appearance) influence people’s behavior toward you, including: Trusting you with information, hiring you or purchasing your product, complying with your request, giving you access to decision makers, paying you a certain salary or fee for contracted business. These perceptions and behavior leave a persistent, long term impression among observers. Your image can have a significant impact on your happiness by affecting the development of personal relationships. It is therefore essential to be able to create a positive first impression, both on personal and professional fronts, by managing your image.
