As a little girl I remember my mother teaching me to give. She taught me to give my clothes away. When my clothes were too small for me to wear, she taught me to give them to others. Throughout my life I have given my clothes away, and everywhere I go I always have an abundant supply of clothing. The more I give them away, the more I receive. Friends and relatives even ask me if I would like their clothes, not because I don’t have enough clothes of my own, but to give away to others because they know that’s what I do, give clothes to those who need them. In my home, I even have a clothes closet that is reserved for giving. Over the years I’ve taught seminars on “Dressing for Success”. I even began a program for teenage girls “Queenbuilders” that expanded to adult men and women called “King & Queen Builders”. I teach on the importance of dressing for success. We receive jobs based on our presentation. Much of our presentation has to do with our appearance, how we are dressed and present ourselves. If someone does not show up at a job interview appropriately dressed they miss out on opportunities for jobs. Their finances are affected by their appearance. They may have all the talent in the world but if they are not prepared for the opportunity in the area of their presentation they may forfeit their chances for the job. Researchers tell us that we should always dress for the next promotion. Someone is always observing the way you look, the way you respond, and your attitude. Attitude goes a long way. Today many employers are hiring based on attitude. You may have a great attitude but, if you’re not properly prepared in your presentation you could still miss out on opportunities. I enjoy being able to help others with their presentation. Many times I have seen a persons attitude change after they put on a new set of clothes. There is a new confidence in their presentation of themselves. They seem to walk prouder and appear more radiant because they feel good about the way they look. I have often seen how people can judge us based on our appearance. A good example of this is when I walk through a department store dressed up very professionally, I am often taken more seriously than when I am dressed casually in that environment. The service I receive is often different. The first impression is a lasting impression.
