Feng Shui Advice: What does your Front Entrance say about you?

building from a distance
The inspiration for this post came from seeing an entrance into a corporate building in New York City yesterday. From a distance and at a quick glance the building looked as if it was closed, even tho they had a sign that said "open." It threw me off so much I kept looking for another entry point. I know, it sounds silly but true.
Finally I said to myself, lets see if the building really is closed or open :) Turned out, the building was open but the energy resonating with that location gave the illusion that is was not and it did not feel at all welcoming. I walked inside and started up a brief conversation with the security guard.
I said, "I saw the sign said "open" but it seemed like your building was closed. I could not see inside and it looked like the steal gates were down." The Security guard responded with a smile, "yes that tends to happen a lot, but we are open. What you see from the outside is just glass design with concrete in between so yes it does look like steal gates, even tho it's not."
If this is the case for your own storefront, you might want to consider revamping the front entrance of that space.

You can liven up a storefront or corporate entrance with simple Feng Shui suggestions:
- Some businesses will leave their doors open, of courses it's not recommended to do that when it's 80 degrees and up
- add moving objects outside the front entrance to capture attention, such as flags that say "open" or "welcome"
- add some beautiful fresh flowers or plants that have accents of red or are in red pots
- add sounds, such as with wind chimes
- make the storefront display case colorful, add moving objects inside the window so you capture the attention of potential customers/clients
- make sure the entrance inside is lite up so looking in from the outside it looks as if its open
