April Update – In Chicago Working On Style For The Black Man – New Course & eBook – Grant Harris
Antonio: Hey everybody! Antonio of Real Men Real Style here today and I’ve got a special guest with me, Grant Harris of Image Granted.
Grant flew in from Washington DC. We’re currently in Chicago and we’re working on a new project. It’s called Style for the Black Man.
Grant, it’s been about a year we’ve been working on this project?
Grant: Just about.
Antonio: Yeah, so we’re doing the final bits. We’re recording the audio, recording some video, and I also have, about a week ago, started my April Style System, so that’s in full session.
But today, I would be very interested to hear from you in the comments because Grant and I are finishing up the project, but we want to make sure that we cover everything. And so, I know there are many men out there who are dark-complected, who are of African descent, and you’ve got a lot of questions, so I would love to hear from you down on the comments. But today, I want to spend a little bit of time introducing Grant.
Grant, I’ve been working and I’ve known you now for a couple of years, and if you could just spend, I don’t know, maybe 30 seconds and tell us a little bit about yourself.
Grant: Yeah, of course, Antonio. It’s a pleasure to be here in Chicago. It’s my first time actually in Chicago. It’s a great city. For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Grant Harris. I’m the owner and chief style consultant at Image Granted LCC, which is a Washington DC based image consulting company for men.
What I do on a regular basis is I help men and individual men who are retailers attract, attain, and retain their best image, so I write, I speak, I present. I help build strategies for individual men, as well as men who are retailers, and helping brand and market to men, and helping the man himself brand himself and market himself in whatever environment he happens to be in.
So I’m very pleased and honored to be here working with you, Antonio, on this project. My African-American and dark-skinned brethren needs some attention and there are a lot of questions out there, and I think this is a good opportunity for us to put our networks and knowledge together for a good cause, so, thank you.
Antonio: Well, Grant, a pleasure to have you here. I’m excited about this, guys, because there are so many men out there and I get a lot of these questions in which they are men of substance, they are men who have accomplished a lot in their lives, but people are looking them over. People are profiling them. People are not giving them the time that they deserve simply based off of their physical appearance.
And so, Style for the Black Man, this is going to be our new product. It’s going to be coming out here soon, but again, I would love to hear from you down the comments below on what you think a course like this needs to have in it and if you’ve got some stories of how you’ve been profiled.
Yes, this is Style for the Black Man, but I’m of Hispanic descent and we’re going to be creating a product for that as well. There are many Asian men out there who have been profiled as well, so I would like to hear from you guys of some of your stories, anything you think you can add to this, we’d love to see it in the comments.
With that, guys, go check out Grant over at Image Granted. He’s got a great website. That’s at imagegranted.com?
Grant: www.imagegranted.com. You can check me out on Twitter @ImageGranted and also Facebook, search “Image Granted”, very easy.
Antonio: Okay, so you guys can go check him out. Again, you’re going to see this book, or it’s more book/course. We’re going to have consulting with it as well, but you’re going to see this probably hit, I’m thinking May or June time period, maybe sooner. Grant is really pushing forward to get it out.
Again, guys, see you in the comments. Take care and I’ll see you in the next video. Bye-bye.
