Now that she’s been booked for a keynote address at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer should look to it as an opportunity to present a different side to her than what she’s shown the public lately.
Take last week, when “Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence did a whirlwind tour of Silicon Valley to promote the franchise’s latest installment.
And how about that Vogue spread in September in which she posed as if she were modeling for, well, Vogue. Whether or not Mayer is consciously cultivating this attention, it seems inarguable that the CEO of a company in turnaround mode should do anything short of everything to keep from being misinterpreted as vain or frivolous.
Then there are all those headlines about her interests in fashion, parties, real estate. Yahoo’s stock has been on the upswing since she took over last year, but there isn’t an analyst alive who will tell you that the online giant is out of the woods.

Before CES comes along, Mayer has to realize the one thing she’s lost sight of at Yahoo: herself.
ATB - All The Best ATM - At The Moment ATS - Across The Street ATTN - Attention ATTYO - Anything That Turns You On AWCIGO - And Where Can I Get One?

It’s not as if Mayer isn’t conscious of maintaining the right image.
