People are often times put off when I introduce myself as an Interior Designer/artist/feng shui student/home staging instructor (not necessarily in that order). They actually take a step back especially here in the small town of Selma CA.
"I Color YOUR World" really says it all for me. Pleople want to know HOW?

Double Your Income With an Unlimited Number of Highly-Qualified Prospects For Free
By: Raymond Aaron
The way to get an unlimited number of highly-qualified prospects for free anytime you wish as often as you wish for the rest of your working life ... is easy and it really is free and anyone can do it. You don't buy anything from me or anyone. You just change the wording of how you introduce yourself! Let me explain ...
The boring way to introduce yourself (which everyone now uses) goes like this: "I am an electrician". What is wrong with this? Firstly, it does not increase your business so why bother saying it. And, it has two errors in it:
1.The first error is that it uses the word "a" or "an" which means that you are just one of many -- indistinguishable and uninteresting.
2.The second error is that you state what you do so that there is no mystery, no excitement.
Here's how you create excitement and have people WANTING more details.
Introduce yourself using the following guidelines:
1. introduce yourself by saying WHAT THEY GET not WHAT YOU DO
2. introduce yourself by creating QUESTIONS not ANSWERS
3. introduce yourself by saying "you" in the sentence 4.introduce yourself by being BRIEF.
Here are some examples:
BAD ........... I am an electrician GREAT ...... I check your shorts!
BAD ........... I am a professional speaker GREAT ...... I double your income!
BAD ........... I am an interviewer GREAT ...... I mail millionaires to your door!
BAD ........... I am a Feng Shui consultant GREAT ...... I color your world!
BAD ........... I am a photographer GREAT ...... I shoot you!
BAD ........... I am a therapist GREAT ...... I get into your head!
BAD ........... I am a dietician GREAT ...... I feed you healthy junk food!
Get the picture? Now, create one for yourself and send it to me by typing it in a comment to this article.
Do you have the courage to use this fascinating way to introduce yourself? Most people don't. I encourage you to develop a fascinating way to introduce yourself and then practice on family members until you are strong enough to do it in the world. Best of success. It works.
