No matter how cheap or expensive the shoe, without proper care they will break down quickly, devaluing your investment. A good pair of shoes can make your outfit and day if you have to be on your feet all day, so the last thing any well-dressed man needs is to have his perfect pair get worn down before its time. In this edition of Suit Your Life, we give you five essential tips to extend the life of all your shoes. Youâ€™re welcome. â€”Gardy V. Guerrier
Someone once asked me what I did for a living and I gave them the simplest answer I knew, "I panhandle, shop, and telemarket". A slightly more complicated answer is that I am the Co-Managing director of a nonprofit, Hearts4Haiti Global initiative (H4HGI) that raises funds through large-scale fundraising events, grants, and partnerships to create, implement, and oversee programmatic initiatives in Haiti. Iâ€™m also an image consultant that counsels individualsâ€”primarily men and corporate clientsâ€”on appearance, behavior, and communication skills through individual consultations, coaching, presentations, seminars, and workshops. Lastly, in my free time I write about my two passionsâ€”fashion and travelâ€”in my Suit Your Life column here on BlackEnterprise.com.
