I have just started to use facebook to network and make contacts, so you know what that means? The first thing anyone sees, before they’ve even read my name, is my profile picture. Same on LinkedIn, same on my website, and maybe on my emails (potential clients want to see who they might be working with!).

One of the main things that puts me off connecting with someone? An unprofessional profile picture. It tells me you might not be paying attention, or that you don’t think you deserve a good quality picture. If you don’t celebrate yourself, how can I think you’ll celebrate me?

So, is it time to do something about it?

When I was starting out I was always finding ways to do things on the cheap or trading my skills with other start-ups. You can’t keep doing that forever, because it shows, and it doesn’t always make you feel good. It’s lower energy than investing and it can keep you in a famine mindset. Go hard, or go home!

So, if you’re ready to invest, even a little bit, I’m running regular headshot clinics in SW Hertfordshire, which includes your photographer’s fee, your image, and professional makeup, all for £77, usual price £145.

You know what to do.
