Here are some tips on how to maintain that professionalism:

  • Put it in writing. Use letters of agreement and contracts for al your business transactions. This is not only professional, but eliminates the risk of misunderstandings.
  • Keep your marketing materials current. Out-of-date materials make you look lazy and unprofessional. If you move, immediately print new materials and contact your entire client list.
  • Bank like a business, not a consumer. As a business owner, you need a separate bank account and credit card. Develop a relationship with your banker-many are now courting entrepreneurs.
