Have you ever met someone and had a conversation with them, and when the conversation started, you didn't really take them seriously, but as the conversation went on, you realized they were actually very intelligent? Some people don't realize that speech and appearance are everything in business. Someone who knows just enough to get by, but dresses well and speaks as if they are an expert will usually get the business before someone who really is an expert, but wears south poles, a do rag, and speaks like a rapper. Where I grew up at (and still live) almost nobody dresses or speaks professional, and the ones that do have to deal with criticism from everyone else. Ofcourse that doesn't stop me because I understand what it takes to succeed in life. And the same thing can be said for online forums such as bhw. I see so many people on here talking hood slang and acting out towards everyone. But when you speak that way here you have to understand that since we can't hear you, this is actually speech and appearance. People are not gonna take you seriously if you speak that way. Example 1: Yo wat up? I gots dis killa method to make sum cash. Example 2: Hey everyone, I decided to share a good method that will help you make money. Now honestly, which one would you take seriously? Yea, I would probably read example 1's post and laugh my ass off and show all of my friends, but when it comes down to it, I would take example 2 more seriously. It's just something to think about. Always remember, "To be successful, you need to look and speak successful"
