Dress for success

By Paul Santiago

Welcome to the Wedding Video Boss Podcast! I am your host, Paul Santiago and today we’re talking about dressing up for success. This is one of my favorite topics! Before we go any deeper, let’s do the quotes for the day: "You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it.” Edith Head (American costume designer who won a record eight Academy Awards for Best Costume Design,) and “Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.” Rachel Zoe (American fashion designer, businesswoman, and writer) Now, these quotes may take you into different directions so before you go running to Nordstrom or hot topic, let’s talk about the things you need to remember when you try to dress for success... Growing up in the Philippines, we were a very middle class family and mom worked a at school which was mostly for rich kids. Of course being a child of a teacher, the school gave my mom a great deal for our tuition and we were able to attend school where she worked at. And you know, as a kid, I didn’t really see the difference between me and my friends not until I was older. You know how kids are, they dont care. But then in high school my classmates started wearing branded clothing, let’s just say that I was wearing off brand BUT my mom very stylish so we grew up with her dressing us up and pretty much have a decent taste, not as amazing as my mom, but we had the gist of it. And if there’s anything I’ve learned, dressing well is not that different from wearing expensive clothes. Heck, I knew my wife since we were 15 and she thought we were rich! Hahaha With that being said, here are the things to remember when you Dress for success: It makes a good first impression What you’re wearing dictates how people will address you It will change your mood It’s a step to overall self-improvement Dress like how much you charge Bottom line is, you dress up because you’re working. We’re already a small business, you don’t need to tell people that you’re broke by looking like a hobo. Imagine being the owner of the company and your employees come to work all sloppy and demotivated. It’ll affect your mood and your brand. So always remember, From the great Roy T. Bennett, Make improvements, not excuses. Seek respect, not attention. I would love to hear how this episode was for you so feel free to reach out!
