Where are you headed this year? Are you staying in the same lane, bumbling along at the same old speed, or are you ready to slip into the passing lane and burn rubber?
We are visual creatures, and when we put our best faces forward, we create trust.
According to www.explodingtopics.com…
- 81% of consumers need to trust a brand to consider buying
- 77% of consumers prefer shopping with brands they follow on social media
- 65% of consumers say a brand’s CEO and employees influence their decision to buy
- 55% of brand first impressions are VISUAL
It’s time to take action. Let’s burn some rubber baby.
What if there was a way that you could see yourself in the shoes that you want to fill?
Experts often remind us that to become something different, one must behave as if it’s already happened. I don't know about you, but at times that has been a daunting challenge for me. How are you supposed to feel like an expert baker when you’re still struggling to create consistent bakes? How are you supposed to feel like a black belt in jiu-jitsu, when you just got your second stripe on your first belt?
How are you supposed to feel like a real estate mogul when you haven’t even developed your first piece of property yet?
There are a few ways to tackle this. You could research a day in the life of a professional baker. You could interview black belts and discover their secrets to skill development. You could attend a real estate seminar and learn ALL the ins and outs…but will those things truly allow you to FEEL into the person that you want to become? You would certainly gain some important insights, but I think there is a more impactful way to embody the new you.
A Portrait of Success
When was the last time that you saw a professional picture of yourself and felt like it represented not only who you are right now, but also the person who you truly want the world to see? Although you may not YET be the Queen of the Boardroom, the King of the Dancefloor, or a Master Chef, you can certainly feel as if you are. Sometimes, all it takes is one look at a picture of yourself that sets the right tone to catapult you into the next stratosphere.
I know all the arguments against investing in Personal Branding Portraits. I’m (insert here): too fat, too skinny, too young, too old, not in shape, bad at styling myself, bad at styling my hair and/or makeup, busy, tired, lacking funds, not ready…not worth it. I call bullshit on all of those excuses. You just haven’t had a VIP photography experience.
What if professional photographs improved your opinion of yourself, which in turn increased your earning capacity?
As The Rolling Stones sang, “Every picture tells a story, don’t it?” We all have a story to tell, and it's being written every day. The things that we have experienced are part of us, but so are the things that we are striving for. I believe that both of these beings should be represented in the photos that we share with the world. The you who has worked so hard to get to where you are now, and the you that you see when you close your eyes and dream.
Someone once said to me, “People can’t afford NOT to hire you.” And I took that to heart. As someone who sells a luxury service, I had to ask myself; is professional photography truly expendable? When it comes to business, I think not. When we’re pouring everything we have into creating success, don’t we owe it to ourselves to love the pictures that represent us? To look at them every time we use them and think about how proud we are of ourselves? How GREAT we look? If you’re not excited about the pictures on your website, or those that you use for speaking, or the ones that grace the pages of all of your social media, then you are gravely affecting the way that success shows up in your life.
