It applies to anyone who has ever want- ed to get an idea across to someone else, to influence opinion or action—be it in the home, the school, church, community or workplace. It is creating an authentic, appropriate, attractive, and affordable image. Intelligence, knowledge, ability, initiative, and effort are vital to the success of any kind, but regardless of who you are, how old, and what your role or goal, ongoing image management can give you the personal/professional presence you need.
