This year I have the honor of attending the annual Black Enterprise Golf & Tennis Challenge on Labor Day Weekend (Sept. 1-5) in Miami. Now, all I have to do is figure out what to wear. The problem is I havenâ€™t played golf in a decade, so for this edition of Suit Your Life, I enlisted the expertise of my golf fanatic friends (a.k.a the pros) to help me put together a stylish and functional golf wardrobe for my weekend under the Miami sun. As I hope for no rain (but am always "boy scout" prepared), here are some of my recommendations to be stylish on the links. See you in Miami. 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.
