â€œHair is the first thing. And teeth is the second. Hair and teeth. A man got those two things, heâ€™s got it all.â€
Those are the words of the Godfather of Soul, James Brown. Â
I don’t suppose he was speaking about public speaking. But he was talking about the importance of impression. Â
One of the easiest ways to make a good impression is simply to smile. Â
Too many people, when making speeches or presentations fail to do anything with their face other than look overly serious.
If you want to make a great impression, make like James Brown. Remember that people want to see some teeth.
Smile! Â It’s like a handshake with the face.
