You work hard for your money, so you shouldn’t feel guilty about splurging every once in awhile. In fact, for most businessmen, splurging on occasion is a great thing. It helps you relax and if you spend a bit more money on the right things, you can greatly improve your professional appearance. When you’re ready to treat yourself, consider throwing down some cash on these things.
The better you look, the better you feel — and if you feel great, you’re more likely to excel at your job. The fact is, you need to look professional and the best way to upgrade your professional look is by splurging on a few custom-tailored suits. Not only does a tailored suit fit you better, it looks nicer and you’ll be more comfortable wearing it. So whenever possible avoid buying off-the-rack suits and get your suits custom made instead.
To ensure your new suits are made from high-quality material and tailored properly, it’s important to find a skilled, professional tailor. So your best bet is to look for tailors in larger cities near you. For example, if you live in Utah and you need custom tailored suits, Salt Lake City is a great place to look. Because it’s a larger city, filled with professional businessmen, it’ll be a lot easier to find a tailor that does a great job.
Go to a Spa
Spa days aren’t just for women. Businessmen need to relax too, and there’s no better way to relieve stress than spending the day at the spa. If you’re a first-timer, start with a massage. Swedish massages are popular options. They are relaxing and common treatments for both men and women. If you’re a man that’s more comfortable spending the day at the spa — as you should be — branch out and try a few different treatments. Consider a facial or acupuncture. If you’re really ready to relax, consider spending the whole weekend at the spa. Many destination spas offer a wide range of activities in addition to more traditional spa treatments.
Buy a Luxury Watch
A really nice watch is a status symbol that can’t be beaten. However, many people assume that because their cell phone tells them the time, they shouldn’t bother. That’s simply not true. Not only does a luxury watch add an extra bit of prestige to your attire, it’s handy. When you’re in an important meeting or having drinks with clients, pulling out your phone is often considered rude. Wearing a watch allows you to discreetly check the time without offending anyone. Additionally, luxury watches last a lot longer than a cheap model you can purchase at a local big-box store.
Buy a New Car
If you’re going to look the part, you should do it right. A businessman with a custom-made suit just can’t step out of a minivan at a client meeting. You need to look professional, and a new car will put the finishing touches on your look. That doesn’t mean that you have to purchase the newest sports car on the market. You don’t necessarily need a flashy vehicle, but it’s a good idea to purchase a newer car that complements your professional status. If you haven’t made it to the top of the food chain yet, consider purchasing a nice SUV or a luxury sedan.
Remember, when you choose items to splurge on, it’s important to make sure you’re spending your money wisely. The last thing you want to do is go overboard and build up a lot of debt. Start by splurging on nice clothes and accessories and work your way up to a new car and expensive vacations.
