Max’s Blog. Sid, Blossom and Bessie. My Tattoo Regret

Sheepish MaxOne night, I went out with the boys including Sid the Sausage dog. Now he’s a bad boy! My mum, even told me to stay away from him as he is a bad influence on me. Well, back to the night out with the boys, it was ONE of those nights. I’m sure that Sid spiked my chicken! Well, the effect of spiked chicken on a cute little white fluff ball like me can be enormous. That night, it didn’t fail to live up to expectations and we ended up, as boys do, at the local tattoo parlour. The night was only going to go one way from here, and that’s badly.

The repercussions

In the morning, my mum, Dr Saliba was not happy. I was grounded big time. I mean when you’re only 10 centimetres from the ground under normal circumstances, and all of a sudden, I am totally grounded, well, that’s a massive problem for me. How was I to guard my nan’s house? Ah, I forgot that my time as Chief Security Officer also was not that successful (long story) (read my bio),  but you get the gist of things. You just can’t keep a lovable superstar like me down for THAT long!.

The Regret

Back to the story of my big night out and that tattoo. I am also regretting that night because I don’t know who “Blossom” is and Blossom’s name was now adorned on my cute pink belly. This was also very bad too as I have my eye not on Blossom, but rather on a socially upward mobile little poodle, “Bessie!” . Ah…. Bessie! She’s a pooch’s dream. Now she’s a classy lady. I’ve heard some say that Bessie is so classy, she has to bathe in goats milk every day, has her nails polished by the house cat, bomber, and only eats prime beef, with a French dressing on. Makes my chicken desires somewhat downmarket! Back to the story! How could I let her see me with Blossom emblazoned on me?

Overcoming Tattoo Regret

If, like me, you have tattoo regret and want to remove “Blossom” before Bessie finds out, you need to see my mum. Her Le Sands Clinic, (btw, have I mentioned my aversion to medical establishments and vets especially, as they stick things where I don’t want things to be stuck!). Well, it has state of the art tattoo removal technologies that can help me remove Blossom in double quick time. Being Chief Happiness Officer, I do get a staff discount, but even mere humans can take advantage of Dr Saliba’s brilliant technology and at very special prices, and remove that ink that you are now regretful over. And before Bessie finds out!

Your Next Phase: Oozing Confidence, and Impressing Your New Boss And Clients

There is an old saying, that when you start a new job, or return to work after raising a family, that you should “dress to impress”. Indeed, the way you dress says so much about you. It can convey your meaning, your style, or how approachable you are. It can convey the way you want to be treated in the workplace. This article from Forbes explains this well.

Your next phase

But being your best, feeling your best, and feeling confident has more to it than meets the eye. It can be the clothes you wear, or style you portray. Returning to work is a prime example of this. Radiating confidence is the key to creating an impression. An impression with your new work colleagues, your bosses, clients or other key people. How many times have you been in a professional setting, maybe a product launch, or a networking meeting, and someone walks into a room that just oozes confidence, radiates an aura, and people are drawn to them naturally. Your personal brand is so important in this day and age. What is your personal brand? Do you ooze that confidence when walking into a meeting, networking event, or meeting clients?

Your next phase is about to start. How successful will your next phase be? That’ll be down to you, your skills, and your personal capabilities. Think about this: someone’s impression of you takes only around 4 seconds to be made up. Think about that, 4 seconds, or the time it takes to read this sentence, could either make or break you. No pressure there then! Now also think about this, the times when you are most confident, what is it that helps create this confidence?

Your personal brand

When starting your next phase, we believe that your best phase is about your personal brand, the style you convey, and how great you look, inside and out, male or female. Whilst we can’t help style you, we will help with your inner you. when your skin is glowing and radiant, your facial lines tight, and purposeful, your breakouts under control, and any skin damage repaired, then you will be oozing confidence.

We believe that inner confidence can be enhanced through how you look, how you feel, and how ready to meet the world you are.

Looking Great, Feeling Great

Your next phase is about not only looking great, but also feeling great. Inner greatness will be achieved through the treatment of external and cosmetic conditions. Conditions such as sun damage, excess hair, or ill advised tattoos. Over the next few weeks, we’re creating a series of articles about some of the people we’ve helped, their inspiring stories, and the successes they’ve had as part of their journey to their next phase. We hope you enjoy these as much as we do and are inspired to be reach your best phase.

When contemplating your next phase, a phase involving returning to work, or moving up the corporate ladder remember this. Personal success is not only desirable, but a must have. That personal success will be as a result of a number of factors, confidence and appearance being just two of them, but highly important ones.
