Speaking of professional.
My franchisor keeps pushing white shirts and ties for that "professional" look. As I have told my VP-Operations so many times, first I'm in business for myself because I despise ties.--haven't worn one in 20 years. Second, he can try his darndest to make this a white collar job, but as long as I'm climbing under houses and up in attics (and over the rooftop to grandmother's house we go), ain't gonna be no white collar job. Sorry.
We wear t-shirts. Love t-shirts. The only thing better than t-shirts is not wearing. . . Well, we'll just leave it at that.
I put my company logo on the back of the shirt, big and bold. Since I have my back to everyone most of the time, they may not remember my face, but they'll remember my company. ![icon_wink.gif](upload://ssT9V5t45yjlgXqiFRXL04eXtqw.gif)
A logo on your shirt, any kind of shirt, even a tank-top or mesh shirt, provides that "professional" image. Now just figure out what kind of shirt is appropriate for your profession. As much as I would like to believe that my mesh shirts are appropriate for home inspecting, alas, they are not. Those black widows could climb right through that mesh and it would be very difficult to brush them off.
Home inspections. . . .
One home at a time.
