Itâ€™s that wonderful time of year where you honor the most influential man in your life. The man who taught you how to tie your shoe laces like bunny ears, let you stand on his feet for your first dance, put shiny new pennies in your loafers and taught you how to behave like a lady or gentlemen on a date. Of course, Iâ€™m talking about dad. For my first menâ€™s style column, Suit Your Life with BlackEnterprise.com, I focused on Fatherâ€™s Day and selected seven stylish gift ideas to show your dad how much you love, appreciate, and want him to look like the superhero you always knew he was. Note: No ties allowed! 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.
