The REAL Reason You're Not Making As Much Money As You Could Be

Why Education, Talent, and Experience
Just Isn't Enough In Today's Competitive World

"I just can't express how much this ... has positively influenced my life. Initially the attention I received was a bit awkward for me, but using your plan for my appearance gave me the confidence I needed to present my ideas and myself as a professional.

"In turn, my office management expressed increased confidence in me and I've experienced both career growth and higher compensation.

"Thank you so much for continuing to share your time, talent, and beauty."

Dear Friend,

Let's cut to the chase:

You're not making as much money as you could be.

Why You're Not Getting AheadYou're not getting the respect you deserve, you don't have the career you should.

And it's probably not because you don't have the skill set.  Chances are, you're very good at what you do.

No, you're being left behind for one simple reason:  you're not dressing appropriately for your job.

You may think you are.  Or, you may think that how you dress shouldn't matter. 

But let me clue you in on what employers think: 

Human Resources professionals estimate
that 95% of people dress inappropriately for their jobs.


That's right. Nine out of ten people head off to work every day in clothing that undermines their credibility, downplays their talents, and reduces their paychecks significantly.

That's a problem - especially in today's economy.

Look, I've been on both sides of the hiring table.  I know what it's like to interview for jobs and to interview potential job candidates.  Here's what I can tell you:  how you dress mattersA lot

In fact, if you look good on paper and in person, you're pretty much a shoo-in for the job. 

Here's why:  by the time you're called for an interview, employers are tired.  They've looked through hundreds of resumes or applications, looking for someone - anyone - who comes close to their "ideal candidate" description.  Most won't.  But a few - perhaps 5 or 6 - will be in the ball park.  So they'll call them in for an interview, looking for someone who looks as good in person as they do on paper.  Again, most won't.  Most will come to the interview inappropriately dressed and take themselves out of the running before they even walk through the door.

Because the unspoken rule is that the "ideal candidate" will not only possess all the skills the employer is seeking, she'll also come wrapped in an attractive package and look like she's ready to sit down and get to work then and there.  She's the "total package."

Chanel compactEver wonder why department store makeup costs so much?  It's typically NOT because the ingredients are expensive.  No, it's because of the brand and the packaging.  The brands - Bobbi Brown, Lancôme, Estée Lauder, etc. - have spent the time and money to produce a quality product and package it attractively.  There's prestige involved in carrying around a Chanel compact with its intertwining C's, so no one thinks anything of spending $50 for it. 

That's how you want to package yourself - like a prestigous department store brand.  Because if you've got the skill set and the packaging, no employer will think anything of paying more for you, too.  I guarantee.

 

"He said that when I stood in the frame of the doorway to his office, that I matched exactly the picture in his mind how he needed someone in that position to look."

"I wanted to share a success story with you. As you know, I've been a client of yours for over 10 years, since you first launched Fashion for Real Women. I've endeavored to keep your advice in mind, particularly concerning business image.

"While I could share quite a number of success stories, one instance stands clearly in my memory. I relocated to Cincinnati right before the economic crash of 2008, which sent me on an extended and sometimes disheartening hunt for a new job. Several local friends encouraged me to apply to XXXXX Medical Center, a highly regarded research institution in the nation. Most of my research experience did not include clinical trials, and I was initially hesitant to apply.

"However, when I made the decision to see what opportunities were available, I found one that seemed to be a good match for my transferable skills. After taking in clues about what sort of internal organization this was and what was needed for the role, I decided to dress in formal traditional attire, including a simple tailored black skirt suit, mid-heel black kid leather pumps (with neutral hosiery), and moderately-sized but conservative jewelry. I used conservative but polished makeup and blew my hair into a smooth and softly controlled style.

"Long story short, the series of interviews (nine total, including one of the Division Co-Directors) were amazingly easy for me to maneuver. When I was hired, I was told by many associates that they had vetted over 40 people for the position and that it was a considerable achievement to have been extended the (only) offer. 

"When I spoke to the Director of the organization to which I was hired, he told me that he knew he wanted to hire me as soon as he saw me. He said that when I stood in the frame of the doorway to his office, that I matched exactly the picture in his mind how he needed someone in that position to look. Sure, my skills matched what they needed (transferable as they were -- I still had some specific learnings to accomplish), bhighut he emphasized that I had the total package, of which you speak.

"And so I wanted to say thank you very much for offering your expertise. I believe it has given me the advantage in an exciting and rewarding career I could not have ever dreamed I would have."

Sincerely,
Sophia T.
Cincinnati, OH

But what if you're already employed and are looking to get promoted?

It's never too late to start fresh.

Dress to impressIn fact, if you strive to become "the total package" by showcasing your skill set correctly right now, you'll notice a couple of things right away:

  • Your employer will start to get nervous, wondering if you're interviewing elsewhere
  • Your co-workers will wonder what's up -- what you know that they don't
  • You'll be treated with more respect
  • Your confidence will increase
  • Opportunities will start to come out of the woodwork
  • You'll start making more money

No, this isn't some pie-in-the-sky theory.  This is 30 years of real world experience.

Before I started my own image consulting company, I interviewed a total of 15 times for the various jobs I held, starting in high school.  I was offered 10 of them.  That means that nearly 7 out of 10 times, I was considered "the ideal candidate" and offered the job.

Now I'd like to say it's was because I'm brilliant, but the reality is, I just knew "the formula" employers seek.  My parents had taught me well.  My father instilled a good work ethic while my mother - an interior designer by trade - taught me the importance of proper packaging.

It's a formula I've shared time and again with my clients, with similarly high results.

"I've started to notice who 'gets it' and who doesn't."

"I just wanted to let you know that I had success with your advice from Business Wear Magic. I was on a symposium this week end and I used your advice and packed "capsules." The dress was tailored casual. I felt right at home and was complemented many times on my clothes and was told I looked "great". I felt that I got the look right, some people were in jeans and T's but all the top people has tailored pants and collared shirts and jackets. Thanks to your advice I fit right in with the big wigs. I felt confident and overall things went very well.

"I've started to notice who 'gets it' and who doesn't. I'm glad to say, thanks to you, I've made the transition into the first group."

"Your suggestions are so simple and yet make so much sense."

"I got your ebook downloaded and I love it!! Your suggestions are so simple and yet make so much sense. I have looked into my closet a million times and said how can I have so many clothes and nothing to wear? The more I read the more I said...Oh Yea. It's just like a light went off in my head and now I can't wait to get started. Thanks you so much, I have been praying for some help like this for a long time."

"She suggested I might want to serve on their Board. Me? A board? Life after fifty, who knew?"

Carol Fritz"If I didn't tell you (and it bears telling again), your advice on dressing for my law school reunion was excellent. I felt fabulous. Because I was wearing a shawl that was wearable art, I sought out a woman there (who is also the wife of the Chancellor of the Philadelphia Bar) whom I'd met at a fundraiser at Moore College of Art. She suggested I might want to serve on their Board. Me? A board? Life after fifty, who knew?

"Thanks for all your help."

Now it's your turn.

Here's....

How to Have All the Success You Want,
Starting Right Now

"Dress for Success" is an antiquated term, straight out of the 1970's.  It evokes images of business suits and rigid rules that have nothing to do with modern society.

But the reality is, "Dress for Success" is alive and well, and those who know how to dress appropriately for work are hired faster, promoted more quickly, and paid more than those who don't.

But it's more complicated now than it was in the '70's, and any book written before 2000 is outdated.  Business suits aren't always appropriate anymore.  Tech companies don't dress like Wall Street Journal types.  Engineers don't dress like lawyers.  Heck, most of the world doesn't wear suits anymore, so how do you "dress for success" in this century?

"I feel much better about my look"

"I have been doing just like what you described, [wearing] special suits and looking good for certain occasions and ragged for all others.

"I went from banking to fashion, and immediately noticed how far behind I am from everyone else. I thought that by my professionalism and work results, I can win people over, but I was wrong. I didn't look the part.

"Now [that I run my own business] I have more free time than while I was working to make my boss rich full time, I am able to give more thoughts to my image consistently.

"I do notice that my confidence is increasing; I am starting to teach other women what looks best on them. I feel much better about my look and thus self, and I am not as self-conscience as before.

"Thank you for what you are writing. It's right on target."

"Dressing For Success" is nothing new. Savvy business people have studied and used these principles successfully for hundreds of years, because they work.

But after the casual trend of the "dot bomb" era, so many people and businesses discovered that they enjoyed reporting to work in relaxed apparel so much that they never went back to their old business clothes.  Even when they lost business, suffered turnover, and noticed a marked decrease in respect and effectiveness.

Business Wear CasualBusiness Wear Magic shows you how to use that relaxed attitude to your advantage to take control of your destiny and move so far so fast, your competition will never know what hit them. By adding just a few key pieces, you can "shake things up" to your advantage, to put those around you on alert and create a ripple effect that may have:

  • Your upper management re-evaluating your promotability
  • Your boss wondering if you're interviewing elsewhere
  • An incompetent supervisor quivering in his boots, afraid that you're after his job
  • Your peers speculating why you're doing so much better than they are
  • Your subordinates wondering if you're suddenly going to start expecting more from them

Yes, dressing appropriately can have THAT big of an impact. If you're ready to "shake things up" in your office, make more money, and get everything you deserve, you'll be able to make your game plan after reading Business Wear Magic.

So how is Business Wear Magic different from all the other "dress for success" books out there?

Let me put it this way:

Times Have Changed
So Has Appropriate Business Attire

When most people think "dress for success," they immediately think "business suit." Which is fine for those traditional businesses where a suit and heels are required.
 
But what about all those other industries that don't necessarily call for a suit, like architecture or fashion or teaching or food service? What should they wear to "dress for success?"

Most business attire books don't address that, but Business Wear Magic does. Based on a 4-point scale developed by one of the States' leading image consultants, Business Wear Magic shows you exactly what you should be wearing to work whether you're a doctor, lawyer, horse trainer or candlestick maker. You'll also find the business casual look for each of the four levels.

"I think you provided those of us who do not have to dress for business meetings and who work in messy work conditions with some very valuable information."

"I really enjoyed this article because I can relate to the Science Professor. I have worked in the scientific field for 24 years now, both in the laboratory running experiments with all kinds of chemicals and sample matrices, and now in a more office-type job, overseeing our Quality System. I agree it really is a tough place for women to know how to dress when you do not have to meet clients, and what you spill on you may eat your clothes or do bodily harm. I see my friends in banking & business going to work in high-dollar, stylish suits, and think how stupid I would look going into the lab (or into my office now) in one of those. I also don't want to look like the stay-at-home moms in my neighborhood who live in capris or windsuits. So what is the lady scientist to do? I think you provided those of us who do not have to dress for business meetings and who work in messy work conditions with some very valuable information. It was also comforting to know that what I have been wearing is not so off the mark either. Thanks for your great advice!"

"You've more than earned your book fees"

"You've more than earned your book fees -- I'm the systems engineer 'sister' of that science prof. I started a new job last year with way too much makeup, fussy clothes... and it landed me vitually in the typing pool. My hard work just got me a bonus, and I do believe my switch to casual tailored that is just a notch above what the management guys wear is exactly the right thing, because at lunch the managers are now joining me. I am low makeup (but not no makeup), have a short, tidy but rather expensive haircut that lends itself to a trendy weekend look, and I wear a jacket pretty much daily, except for the days I have to deal with machinery. Then it is tailored polyester 3/4 sleeve blouses. Simple, sleek leather low-heel oxfords. I'm awfully grateful."

Jacqueline

Plus, you'll also learn what to wear at each stage of your career, with appropriate budgets for each income level. That comes courtesy of my first career as an accountant, and you won't find that in any other book.

So Who is this Ebook For, Exactly?

Anyone who:

  • Is ready to move up to the next rung on the success ladder and looking for a sure way to do it

  • Has been told by a boss, mentor, or friend that they should consider upgrading their business wardrobe

  • Is starting to work or returning to work after a long absence

  • Has been recently promoted and is wondering what's appropriateto wear at their new level

  • Is in charge of creating or has influence over the company dress code policy.

In short, anyone who is looking for a simple, surefire way to increase their bottom line.

"I purchased the e-book 2 months ago and the first thing I did was to aggressively attack my closet. It was tough, but if it didn't flatter it had to go.

"This...has saved my workday life. I pull my items over the weekend. I match shoes and accessories ahead of time.

"No more looking for the right outfit every morning. No more wasting money on items that just don't work.

"I must be doing something right because I have been receiving a lot more attention and compliments.

"I feel pretty...oh so pretty :)"

Angela Harris


 "I owe you sooo many thanks. I am the perfect description of the type of person that impulse buys. I felt like you were writing specifically for me! Very scary. I stayed up late at night reading everything and the next day cleaned and organized my closet. I really didn't have as much in my "no" pile as I thought I would. The "no" clothing I ended up with is now up for auction on ebay and I am still left with plenty of choices. Once I created my "capsule", I learned that I could pair clothing I never thought about pairing before! You have saved me and my budget, which is pretty non-existent for clothing. Me and my husband thank you! I look forward to the "new" me...
