“Hair is the first thing. And teeth is the second. Hair and teeth. A man got those two things, he’s got it all.”
Those are the words of the Godfather of Soul, James Brown.
I don’t suppose he was speaking about public speaking. But he was talking about the importance of impression.
One of the easiest ways to make a good impression is simply to smile.
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! It’s like a handshake with the face.
