The Top 1% of Black Men Make More Money, Get More Respect And Arouse Instant Intrigue In Women.
What Do They Know That You Don’t?
Master The Scientifically Proven Secrets Used To Send “Success Signals” And Reveal Your Natural Confidence In Just 5 Weeks Without Breaking The Bank
I’m Grant Harris, former Managing Director of the Association of Image Consultants International (AICI) Global Magazine.
I’ve been featured in several international publications such as The Wall Street Journal, TIME Magazine, The Chicago Tribune, The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, CNN, Men’s Health and others.
But that’s not important right now. There’s something else I want to talk to you about.
Why are some black men 10x, 20x, even 100x more successful than others?
Let’s be honest with ourselves.
It’s not money or a Harvard education. (Idris Elba made $96 million in 2013. He never went to college and worked multiple jobs right out of high school.)
It’s not time. We all have the same 24 hours in a day.
It’s not because they’re ripped and built like tanks. (Last time we checked, recording artist CeeLo Green, net worth $22 million, did not have a 6 pack).
It’s not because they had a stable home. (Will Smith’s net worth $215 million. His parents divorced when he was 13.)
It’s not because they stay out of trouble. (Rapper T.I., net worth $75 million, has been to jail multiple times.)
What do they know that you don’t?
How did they figure it out?
How is it that no matter how hard you try, it feels like you can never seem to get ahead?
4 years ago, I asked myself the same question.
What I discovered surprised me.
I had a lot of assumptions about being “successful” …and at least half of them were totally wrong.
But I also realized that the black men who made it to the very top followed patterns.
Sometimes, they didn’t even know they were following a pattern. But they follow them anyway. After I dug deeper and deeper, I started to see the pieces of the puzzle no one else even recognized existed.
I want to share with you what I learned along the way, because I know if it surprised me, it will surprise you too.
I’ll start with THREE GAME-CHANGING FACTS that once I saw them, it became blatantly obvious and I wondered how I never saw them before.
And many of them do it with nothing more than a high school education.
You ever notice how:
- Some guys always get picked first for teams.
- They’d have women gossiping about them for hours on end with their girlfriends (and not oh, he’s so sweet, but OH DID YOU HEAR WHAT so and SO did?? Even if they said they couldn’t stand him…for some reason they just couldn’t stop talking about him…).
- Some guys just always seemed like they had their shit together and had the pick of any job opportunity they wanted?
“I guess they’re just lucky, know somebody, or got it like that” we tell ourselves.
And just like that, in one sentence, we doomed ourselves to being average forever. By saying that, even if just in your head, you give yourself permission to never do anything about it.
You’re basically saying “they can do it but I can’t.” And once you believe that, how could you ever do anything to change it? You won’t even so much as try. You’ve already mentally checked out the game…
Whenever you say “yeah, I guess they’ve got something that I don’t”, you’ve already lost.
As I studied the black men who’d made it, from actors to rappers to businessmen, one thing became obviously clear as I poured through interview after interview.
They decided that no matter what, they were gonna win. Odds be damned. No excuses.
They were always re-inventing themselves.
It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.
- Charles Darwin
Take Will Smith for example. He went from rapper to actor and even better businessman (he grosses $4 billion for his movies).
It’s not luck or some pearly white Colgate smile. It’s science.
1. Men who are seen as dominant, high status & influential get more money and women.
“Dominance -> High status -> Influence = Rewards + Evaluations. [Dominant] men received higher rewards, and more positive ratings.”
Aysan Sev’er (1991). Women, Men, and Dominance in Small Groups: A Social Roles Assessment. The Canadian Journal of Sociology / Cahiers canadiens de sociologie. Vol. 16, No. 3 (Summer, 1991), pp. 265-280
2. Attractive men make $2600 more per year for every extra ‘point’ of attractiveness.
“By 1983, men were found to earn $2600 more [per year] on the average for each unit of attractiveness (on a 5-point scale)”
Frieze, I. H., Olson, J. E. and Russell, J. (1991), Attractiveness and Income for Men and Women in Management. Journal of Applied Social Psychology, 21: 1039–1057. doi: 10.1111/j.1559-1816.1991.tb00458.x
3. Women choose high status dominant men for casual sex and relationships.
“When women choose partners, non-physical characteristics such as ambition, status, and dominance establish a pool of partners who are potentially acceptable for sexual relations and higher-investment relationships.”
Townsend, M., Wasserman, T. (May 1998). Evolution & Human Behavior, Volume 19, Issue 3 , Pages 171-191.
4. Powerful men are sexy to women and influence other men.
“Powerful people are more likely to be seen as sexy by others than are persons without power…the interpersonal power of men makes them sexy, both to men and to women.”
John Levi Martin (2005). Is Power Sexy? American Journal of Sociology. Vol. 111, No. 2 (September 2005), pp. 408-446. Published by: The University of Chicago Press.
5. Men’s attractiveness are based on what they own and wear.
“Men’s assessments of sexual attractiveness are determined more by objectively assess-able physical attributes”
Townsend, J. et al. (June 1997). The Perception of Sexual Attractiveness: Sex Differences in Variability. Archives of Sexual Behavior, Volume 26, Issue 3, pp 243-268
Sexy to both men and women? Say what?
Yup, you read that right.
Power is sexy. PERIOD.
Now maybe you’re saying “Grant, I’m not tryna get sexy for dudes. Not my thing.”
True. Me neither. But what if we replace sexy with attractive. Not sexual attraction but attraction as in RESPECT.
- How would more respect from other men change every conversation you have?
- Every job interview you walk into?
- Every business deal you make?
- Every woman overhearing at a party where other men who respect you mentioned how great a guy you were?
That’s power. That’s influence. That’s having options…EVERYWHERE.
“In the long history of humankind (and animal kind, too) those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed.” – That Darwin dude again.
Now when I realized this I thought to myself, “ok, cool that’s Will Smith but I’m Grant Harris from the south side of the train tracks.”
- Who am I to pull off a stunt like this for YEARS to come?
- Even if I felt like I could do it, how in the world do you even do this?
The next 2 facts I’d discover about the men who’d made it to the top would completely blow my questions out of the water.
The first of the two, wasn’t even by a some ultra-successful dude I might never meet, it was from a friend who practiced these scientific Success Signals right in front of me.
“Two men sat behind bars, one saw mud, the other saw stars”
– Dale Carnegie
Isn’t it weird how two people can look at the same thing and see completely different things? If you’ve ever been subject to DWB (Driving While Black), you know exactly what I’m talking about.
It’s like you can never catch a break. Even if riding in a ’94 Honda Civic with NO TINT, here come those flashing lights. Just like that, you’ve been pulled over for DWB.
I have a friend that was driving through southeast Washington, DC with a lady and just as they rounded the corner, there were eight police officers, three cop cars and five bikes.
“Excuse me sir, this is a random stop, we just wanted to make sure you were wearing your seat belt”
Riiiiight, because we need EIGHT POLICE OFFICERS to check if a black man’s got his seatbelt on?
“Sure thing officer”
And then they let him through. Just like that it was over. His girl turns to him and goes “you are one lucky sonnuva…”
“Really? That always happens when I get pulled over. I never have any trouble with the police.”
Her eyes popped.
She was upset…and intrigued at the same time.
“I got pulled over by the cops in Miami and they had me step out the car!!” (Captain Obvious Moment: Women usually catch a break with the boys in blue)
“Oh yeah? What were you wearing”
She fell silent.
They didn’t let him go because he was with the girl. She’d been pulled over herself before and asked to get out of the car.
Was it the way he spoke?
Was it his clothing?
If you’re a black man then what I’m about to tell you is common sense you already know.
The game is stacked against you.
You’ve got to take every extra edge you’ve got if you wanna win. Nobody ever won a game by playing defense.
My friend though…he didn’t start that way. It took him years of studying people around him who were more successful. People with more friends, better business contacts, better women, better style, and better speech.
He studied the best and never sold out. Now I can hear you saying this because I thought the same thing:
“But he changed…he wasn’t himself anymore.”
But then I realized something. He learned from them and made one critical switch to never sell out.
He made it his own.
See, my friend that night wore a made to measure custom fitted shirt, customized portofino cuffs made famous by James Bond, and an European wide spread collar to balance his diamond shaped face.
What do you think popped into that cop’s mind when he walked up?
See, first you’ve got to understand the rules of the game…then you can break them.
Are you breaking the right rules to get ahead?
Do you know what the rules are?
“Who influenced your sense of style?”
“Sean Connery, of course, since I was a kid – you know, James Bond. Or The Thomas Crown Affair – you can’t beat those three piece suits. The Italian Job with Michael Caine – again the suits.”
Ozwald Boateng, the first and youngest black man to open a store on London’s Legendary Saville Row did it at 28.
He was less than half the age of the caucasian men who had been successful for generations and owned everything other store in London’s premier district for men’s style.
If you’ve never heard his name, no worries, it’s not important. What important is you’ve probably seen his work.
Watched The Matrix?
He made those suits.
Watched Ocean’s Thirteen?
He made those suits too.
Do you know any of these guys?
Yup, he made their suits too.
“You were hidden, basically.”
“Yeah, but it was all very deliberate. Because I’m good at what I do, and I just wanted to focus on the work. Let people talk about my cut, the influence of the cut, the detail, and that’s all it was about – for years.”
Part of the secret that he and these men know is this:
People respect them before they open their mouth. They use clothing to send success signals and skip to the front of the line.
And even when they become successful, they keep doing it because they know that the world is watching and judging you at every step of the game.
Never let ‘em see you sweat.
Now at this point, maybe you’re saying “Hey Grant, I’m not a gazillionaire. I can’t afford that.”
While my mentor would slap you upside the head and tell you that you can’t AFFORD not to (the opportunity cost is too great), I’ll let you in on a little secret:
The right fitting $200 suit can beat the wrong fitting $2,000 suit almost every time.
The trick, if your budget is limited, is to use insider knowledge to get the best cut without sacrificing quality.
And if it landed your next gig, job, raise or contract…it’d have paid for itself almost immediately.
We cover this in lesson 7. More on that later.
It’s not just about suits though. It’s about communicating the value you can bring to the world through every single piece of clothing you wear.
- But where would you even begin?
- How could you leverage money if you’re strapped for time and needed this yesterday?
- How could you spend a little more time to save money AND still get great quality clothing if your budget is tight?
- Who could you go to for advice?
- How do you break the right rules without breaking the law to get ahead?
- How do you know what the rules are?
I’m going to give you the proven tools the top 1% of black men have been using to skip to the front of the line.

“Thank you! You are one of the top Image Consultants in the nation. I utilized your fashion advice and I now receive immediate compliments from NBC viewers. You took my career to the next level in terms of my appearance. I highly recommend you.”
“Over the past several years, the boutonniere has become part of my style. It is rare that I will be caught dressed up without one. Thanks!”
“Very professional, direct, and to the point. I would definitely recommend to friends as a source for style.”
“I read content from many bloggers, but there is something about your work & personality that really drew my attention to your site much more than others. You make this profession veryappealing & attractive.”
To make Black Man Style even more of a no-brainer, I’m throwing in even more…
An incredible social network of people just like you.
Access to other black men focused on conquering the exact same challenges you are who aren’t afraid to hold you accountable. Imagine a group of men working to master every area of their life using style as a vehicle. Money, women, influence. Most of all, they’re focused on helping other men they respect do the same as well.
I’ll be in the group too, watching over every one.
Think of what a relief it is to know you don’ t have to know everything or do it alone. That there are people there to listen, help you solve the problem and get real results.
Think of it like a personal locker room. What we discuss here stays here behind closed doors. It’s like having your personal style mastermind ready to coach you to success before you ever step into the office, club or lounge.
You’ll know it’s not “weird” to spend time improving yourself. You won’t have to worry about friends who think you’re different for making yourself better. In fact, we’ve heard the phrase “You’re the average of the 5 people you surround yourself with.” Wouldn’t you want these people to be interested in improving themselves, too?
This community is here to help you, support you, and make this the most long-lasting program of its kind ever developed. This is about long-term real change.
Isn’t it time your clothing delivered the results you were looking for?
Which Black Man Style Membership Level is right for me?
I find that for 90% of men, the One Year Program is perfect.
Building a quality wardrobe takes time and shouldn’t be rushed – you save buying for a year and you get over a dozen special discount offers that more than pay for the cost of membership.
Why is this course so inexpensive?
I want this membership site to be available to men from all income levels. I also find that since I’m delivering thousands of dollars in value it makes for a very happy customer – in fact my return rate is less than 1/2 of one percent.
Yea – this program is that good!
Why is this course so expensive?
I priced this program based on the value I know it will deliver within one year of purchase. If this course helps you to make smarter purchasing decisions, helps you to save time, enables you to dress better, and feel better about yourself……it will have easily paid for itself 10X over.
Over the period of 5 years I feel you’ll get a 100X return as you’ll get promoted or have opportunities come your way that you would have otherwise missed. This is a life-changing course at a bargain price – in my opinion
What’s the Facebook private community about?
Community is a vital aspect to the psychology of change.
Because of how valuable it is, we restrict access and only allow entry on a limited basis. What makes this group strong is that everyone has a basic level of style education – the questions and answers are thus positive, supportive, and informative.
Where is your proof that this course will improve my life?
Our free content across major media outlets speaks for itself – The Wall Street Journal, TIME Magazine, The Chicago Tribune, The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, CNN, Men’s Health. Just Google Grant Harris or Antonio Centeno and you’ll see what I mean!

A Year From Now, You’re Going To Be A Year Older.
The black men that are 100x, no +1000x more successful know something. They know it and they waste no time and spare no expense to get it because…
They understand the game being played around them.
Once they figured it out, they learned how to get everything they could out of everything they’ve got.
I had a mentor.
Someone who’d been where I was trying to go. Someone who shared the insider secrets on the mistakes they made so I wouldn’t have to. If he hadn’t showed me the ropes, I’d have spent YEARS, maybe decades, trying to figure things out on my own.
Instead, thanks to what I learned, in a short space of time I became featured in several international publications such as The Wall Street Journal, TIME Magazine, The Chicago Tribune, The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, CNN, Men’s Health and others.
I know for a fact that with the right guidance, the right GPS, you can shave YEARS off the road to success.
Think about it:
- Idris Alba never wonders where his next paycheck’s coming from.
- Denzel Washington ever so much as ponders whether he can GET the girl at the bar or not
It’s no question or hesitation. Only EXPECTATION.
What they do, and you need to do, is tell them in a way that they need to hear it.
The clothes we wear communicates something. If people don’t understand, or worse, don’t like what you tell them, they’ll NEVER talk to you.
- Are your clothes and style sending the right message?
- What do they currently tell the world?
- More importantly, what do you want to tell the world about you?
What message do you want the world to know? How do you want people to remember you?
- You’re credible.
- You’ve got something worth saying and worth listening to.
- You’re not like everybody else.
- You’re better than other guys they’ve met.
- You’re worth being paid 2x, 5x, and even 10x more than the competition.
Isn’t it time the world heard your story?
Before they do, make sure it’s polished to perfection so they’ll never forget you.
