Millionaire Ivanka Trump explains how to make a great first impression

Ivanka Trump

First impressions are everything. 

In fact, within just moments of meeting you, “people decide all sorts of things about you, from status to intelligence to conscientiousness,” report Business Insider’s Shana Lebowitz and Tech Insider’s Drake Baer. And according to the experts, “it takes just three seconds for someone to determine whether they like you and want to do business with you.”

Luckily, you have some control over how others perceive you. 

Ivanka Trump, the executive vice president of development and acquisitions for the Trump Organization, CEO of Ivanka Trump Collection, and founder of #WomenWhoWork, recently explained to Cosmopolitan magazine’s Leslie Yazel how to make a great first impression:

Before entering a meeting, take the initiative to research and form educated opinions about important topics so that you have an insightful position to share if and when the time is right.

Technology can be a major distraction, so leave your phone or laptop behind if it will not add anything to the meeting.

Also, be on time or ideally, a couple of minutes early, and dress in a polished and professional manner.

Next time you’re walking into a job interview or a client meeting, keep these tips in mind.

You have to be completely sold on investing in them. The deal size you should be looking at is 3-4x the size of your savings for the investment.

For example: If you have 50,000 you are looking at 150,000-200,000 investment properties.

Go within 5 miles of where you live. You need to understand the neighborhood, because if you don’t your certainty goes down and you won’t pull the trigger on a deal.

How Do You Start?:

• Pick a Neighborhood You Know

• Determine your Down Payment

• What Cash Return Do You Want? 10-12% Cash Flow

Remember that ‘Cash Flow’ is king. It is the most important financial business decision and understanding you must have to stay in business.

159: How to Make Income First

This week Grant is talking about money, finances, and how you can simplify them to a digestible amount.

If you’re stuck at a crossroads you’re stuck at a maybe—you need to make a decision. You need to go as fast as you can in one direction, and if it’s wrong, adjust your path.

Simplify everything.

Your Finances:

1. Income – How much came in?

2. Expenses – How much went out?

3. Net – How much do we have left?

“You’re kept from your genius and your potential because you’re overcomplicating everything.” – GC

The first thing you have to do is make a lot of money. Your parents taught you about expenses—use coupons, get discounts—and it’s a waste of time. You need a financial statement, a plan to make money.

Business is supposed to be fun—and it ain’t fun when you’re broke. You need to focus on the top part of your financial statement; the income. Get as many flows in as you can and immediately push that back out to build more sources of income.

“Until you identify the right problem you will not be able to overcome it.” – GC
