What can a virtual office possibly have to do with a celebrity's outrageous antics?
If you've been living under a rock for the past few months, you may not have heard of the world-class meltdown of the actor Charlie Sheen, but it's a rare soul that hasn't followed his story just a little – even by occasional peeks. The media sure won't let us forget it – from tabloid excess to talk show hosts' jokes, to his own self-promotion on Twitter and just about everywhere else, to serious news organizations climbing on the bandwagon. Charlie Sheen's behavior is a staple of the 24/7 news cycle right now and shows little sign of slowing down.
Cashing in on his own infamy, Mr. Sheen has now embarked upon a quickly-assembled tour of 20 cities with an act that consists almost entirely of him showcasing his recently bizarre persona. In Detroit, the first stop, he was roundly booed off the stage. In Chicago, the reception was a lot better; but a sideshow-like atmosphere seems to be the appeal.
Critics generally agree that all this outrageousness is not likely to bode well for his long-term credibility or career success. Perception is everything, and, temporarily fascinating or not, the actor is not boosting his reputation.
If even a celebrity of this magnitude can be damaged by a poor image, imagine how important it is to preserve your own image in your career as a business entrepreneur. While meltdowns aren't at issue, how your customers perceive your integrity and accountability can make or break your business. If your business is seen as too small, flighty, or not grounded in first-class surroundings, your reputation may suffer. Opus Virtual Office to the rescue.
