For many women, a power look doesn't just end with the right outfit or shoe. It's a head-to-toe story of branding that tells who they are, what they do and how well they do it.


Putting that best face forward is important, whether they're closing deals, working with clients, traveling the world or starting that next venture. In today's image-conscious business world, make-up is no longer just for movie stars and glamour girls, as many working women recognize the importance of presence, accentuating their best features and embracing the power of femininity.

For last night's Super Bowl XLVI, millions gathered to watch with excitement --- and for some, disappointment --- as the New York Giants took home the victory. Each team combined skill, strategy, and deliberate action to capture the NFL's top win, a career-defining moment for both sides to reflect on what was done well and what could be improved for next season.


All of these elements exist in today's competitive business world, with everyday professionals applying brain and brawn to achieve career wins. Female professionals can take major cues from the men on the field --- and in the C-suite. 


Jocelyn Giangrande, career coach and author of What’s In Your Sandwich? 10 Surefire Ingredients for Career Success (SASHE, L.L.C; $18.95), offers four lessons women can learn from the Super Bowl to step out of the cheerleader sidelines and into championship gains.
