Edward de Gale shows How to Dress for Success
He's a charity worker in Toronto.
He's the guy who got things going back in the late 1990s and early 2000s and brought about energy subsidies for low income families and people and helped prevent many Canadians from becoming homeless.
He even met Prime Minister Kim Campbell, Russian President Mikhail Gorbachev and has a thank you letter from Queen Elizabeth II for all his fine charity work.
It wasn't that hard.
He wrote lots of letters to politicians in Toronto, Ontario, and various parts of Canada and the USA.
He gave a lot of speeches and explained things eloquently in a way that people could understand them.
In other words Edward de Gale got things done.
BUT DO YOU THINK FOR ONE SECOND THAT PEOPLE WOULD HAVE TAKEN HIM SERIOUSLY IF HE HAD DRESSED LIKE A SLOB?
A suit and a tie.
Well polished shoes.
A trench coat or suit jacket.
Looking at the photos shown here of Edward de Gale in action, you can see what I mean.
Kim Campbell might have been able to get away with wearing a Toronto sports jacket - she was the prime minister after all, but just because she dresses like that sometimes when meeting people doesn't mean the rest of us should dress like that.
The point I am making here is that suit makes the man (or the woman). Looking professional DOES matter.
Which means that even someone who is not famous - is relatively unimportant - can rise to become an important person by presenting themselves as someone to be reckoned with.
And it doesn't hurt that Edward de Gale studied law and then used his knowledge of the law to help people. A shining example of what brains, good fashion sense and an eloquent tongue can accomplish.
