1️⃣ Presentation is everything

When producing a professional document, remember it is a representation and extension of yourself. The how is just as important as the what!
The more saturated your industry is, the more important your “how”.

Are you using complimentary colours? Have you tailored the document to fit your readers preferences? Have you done research on audience?Are you using modern fonts and designs?

Your document might be a cover letter, or a business plan for investors, but the same concepts apply.

2️⃣Solid start, solid finish
