Thanks so much for the enlightenment, Andrew! So suiting up really has an effect to how you roll. Barney Stinson must have built his confidence when he started suiting up. You know that episode when he still looks like a hippie? When he was inspired to wear a suit, he started being the awesome guy that he is. Okay, now that's another page to "Cliff's Book of Knowledge": Suiting up works.

Hi Mike, figured I would drop by to say thanks again for a great post. In fact, I can now answer your question, "Who are YOUR PR role models?" I say Alex Hitchens! http://bit.ly/eYIQCJ

I thought about your article the other day before posting and felt it would make a clever ad-in, ha!
Also when writing an entry about PR interviews, I cited your pal Barney and hope you enjoy this additional thought below on why Barney of course rocks PR wise - even when it comes to interviews!

"In the words of the How I Met Your Mother television character, Barney Stinson, "Suit UP!" even if your interview is over the phone. Phone interviews limit a lot of your presentation. Wearing your professional attire affects your inner psyche and helps build a sense of confidence. And that confidence carries in the tone of your voice."

Love this post Mike! Seriously Barney is legendary. ;) I'm leaning towards Kelly Cutrone as being a role model for me. After reading her book, I became inspired.
