Managing your Professional “Curb Appeal” with Joy Overstreet

Realtors and home buyers understand the power of curb appeal.  But curb appeal can also apply to people. Withinmoments of meeting someone our brains decide whether we want to linger or drive on by, whether we trust them or might want to work with them—and much more.

With tips based on the psychology of color and perception, Joy Overstreet will share the ABCs of “staging” yourself to look more Approachable, Believable, and Competent.  Joy, a color and image consultant at ColorStylePDX and fellow PDBA member, has increased the professional curb appeal of many busy men and women across the country
