As a working woman you need to set yourself ahead of the curve in terms of professionalism. Having employers and clients taking you seriously is the first step to moving up the corporate ladder and achieving the success you desire. Getting your reputation to that standard is not an easy task, however, and requires a full approach in every sense of the business lifestyle, including clothing and business attitude.

Here are just a few ways to make yourself indispensable.
