I was invited to attend a business meeting- the challenge was to mate the colors of my look. As the outfit gives the picture of you, but also the coordinates what should be done about.
Whenever daily agenda forces me to make the choice among my closet’s offer and devotion to nonverbal communication principals, I obey the rule:
Simplicity, Harmony, Femininity and Comfort
which are not words to post on the refrigerator; and take us to practical apply – no more than three colors. Two is better.
So, as I knew that I would have been analyzed, measured, scanned, etc., the decision was simple: Red & Black. This was the part of the strategy in negotiations with that smart and intuitive woman, the counterpart offering prospects, opportunities, smiles, artificial serenity… And a lot of more, but not the money.
Red & Black
the quote from extremely useful “Meaning of Colors in Color Psychology”:
“Color is a form of non-verbal communication. It is not a static energy and its meaning can change from one day to the next with any individual – it all depends on what energy they are expressing at that point in time…” (Understanding the Meaning of Colors in Color Psychology: http://www.empower-yourself-with-color-psychology.com/meaning-of-colors.html ).
authority, power, control, sophisticated, seductive, mysterious – by black.
And I got it. But when it comes to shoes – I had a surprise. The woman in front of me represented more than thirty shoe stores. My experience in business within the domestic market was and are, a kind of – discouraging. I wanted to play a little game: does she know, or was she going to notice?
Was it provoking if I have red boots? Sex appeal? No, I’d rather radiate serious and enterprising fashion blogger able to vastly increase sell in those more than thirty shoe stores. But I like the boots.
Who is Konstantina Tzovolou….? (Academy Of Art University in San Francisco, Greek-born, 6 years going upmarket fashion designer)?. And what is the possibility co negotiator on the opposite side of the table, doesn’t know, which will immediately lessen her negotiation positions.
On the other hand Kontsantina Tzovolou and I, We created effective collaboration. It is honor, I am happy to present her creation/shoes on my blog. Unfortunately, co negotiator didn’t see and notice the brand. We had different approaches, maybe, fortunately, our business meeting wasn’t finished successfully.
Luckily, there is invincible professional enthusiasm grown in my heart: I always bring that positive side of me, giving emphatic collaborator rather than wounded vanity. Unsuccessful business meeting failure? Consider that as an opportunity.
Find Harmony, make Opportunity and take the Chance is everyday responsibility.
‘Three Rules of Work: Out of clutter find simplicity; from discord find harmony; in the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.’
There are and will be so many business opportunities on my way.
Keep on vibing tuned to your noble heart.
