“A few people come into the meeting wearing a suit and are agreeable. Yet, a few people come into the meeting wearing a suit and look to a great degree awkward. Other individuals come in wearing pants and tennis shoes. The thing is, I’m not intrigued by what they wear. I am attempting my supreme hardest to look past those things to find how your cerebrum functions, how you dissect things.

“What I would state is, you need to dress in a way that is conscious. Dress in a keen, sensible manner where you feel yourself.”
