4 GOLDEN RULES Whatever it is, has to be comfortable: never wear it for the first time Watch out jewelry: less is moreOne ring per hand, one earring per ear. Accessories should reflect your personality, notdiminish your credibility Faces, not feet are the focal point in businessA low heel is more professional than flats or high heels. Open-toed or backless shoes arenot office attire. Choose conservative shoes It doesn’t have to be boring, be yourself in business attire!Source: Business Attire Consultant Lydia Ramsey http://www.mannersthatsell.com/

Is there a Glass Ceiling?A combination of two components:• Glass: while it is very real, it is transparent and not obvious to the observer• Ceiling: there is a limit to how far someone can climb it. If there is one, can we break it? Gisele Feldman
