Puahaha this is so true. I remember when I first started l had like one old suit from high school which was way too small and no money to buy anything new. When I closed my first deal @dxsarahxd and I went down to Camarillo outlets and hit the Hugo Boss store. Hanging on the wall was this glorious linen suit in like a very pale eggshell with hints of pink. I was mesmerized and had to have it although it was probably the least practical color I could choose. My budget was for one suit and possibly a decent shirt. So I picked this lavender spread collar number with fake horn buttons. I mean it couldn’t have been a cheesier combo but l wore that get up to the office every damn day (that’s back when I actually went into the office) so proud. And clueless as to how ridiculous I must’ve looked. This was when my weight started ballooning too so I couldn’t do my top button, just cinch my tie up real tight and hide the gap. Sweaty pit stains sweeping through the light color suit. Belt hook hanging on to that last hole for dear life. Good lord. At least I was trying right? Fast forward...I’m approaching my 10th year soon. Yesterday I showed up to meet one of my sellers on my skateboard in my gym shorts, t shirt, and a @missignam hat. Through the years I learned that at the end of the day what matters most is not the suit I wear or the fancy car I pull up in (I’ve been down that road too believe me) but the unbeatable level of service, marketing savvy, expertise and my commitment to integrity performance and perseverance that my clients need and expect. Of course presentation is a high priority and many occasions call for a crisp clean suit, albeit perhaps even a pale pink linen suit. But @philmexposed and I found that most times a Beard and a Blazer will do just fine.
What phase are you on ? @neighborhoodexpert
