High-net-worth people often come across as “citizens of the world.” They are well-traveled. They have an insider’s way of speaking with one another and can pick out a fellow global traveler in social situations. How can you give off the right signals and come across, if not as a seasoned world traveler, as an up-and-coming one?
The first thing you need to do is some traveling. To give off the global vibe, you need to go beyond the Caribbean, Canada and Mexico. Europe is great. South America and Asia are good too.
See the gallery for 15 ways to give off the right signals, while being completely honest about it. You do not need to be talking about yourself and your travels. Take an interest in the travels of others and draw them out instead.
