Sunday saw me judging the NABBA/ WFF Victorian Bodybuilding and Model Championships.
It was a huge day full of fake tan, teeny tiny outfits and more diamontes than an Elvis Presley convention.
A great day, amazing physiques and a stack of talent in the showmanship rounds.
Judging is not easy, it is always subjective, arguments break out, competitors are on stage for what seems like an eternity, all for 9 people to judge them and give them glory and a plastic trophy.
But the one thing that constantly stuck out to me as an important lesson is ‘everything matters’
Obviously physique matters, but so does choice of outfit, hair style, tan, deportment and presentation.
Because it is judge on the physique presented with the least amount of flaws, for some catergories when trying to decide between the placings, it could come down to the tiny details, like a broken finger nail or streaky tan.
It is a reminder that in business, you are judged on everything, everything matters.
From your website, to your uniform, to the way you present your paperwork, all of these things are going to make an impact about what your potential clients think about you.
So stop for a minute today and think about whether or not your business presentation would allow you to take out first place.
And if not, where are you lacking?
For those of you not sure, send me a message, I am happy to put on my judges hat and give you a ranking and feedback, maybe a plastic trophy if your nice.
