Whether you think it is fair or not, how you present yourself is very important, especially in the professional setting.  It affects how others perceive your intelligence, education and capabilities.  From the very first glance, it can make or break whatever follows.  Leading with the right foot, is your most important asset and tool to help grow your business, gain quick respect or keep good rapport in the business world with clients and colleagues.

This standard isn’t only apparent when meeting someone, but also with how you present yourself to others through advertising materials.  In this day in age, just a name on a business card is almost something out dated.  We are living in a more technological driven society where visuals are everything.  From Business Websites, to Billboards, to Professional groups like, LinkedIn; images are thrown into our faces daily.  All of these forms of advertisement, most likely have a face or at the very least a visual of some kind attached to it.  It is better to have more than just a word to remember something by, the most attachments you can create to a brand the better…so back to those business cards.  It is very common for business cards to have a picture on them and your LinkedIn profile to not have a picture you would also have as your main profile picture on Facebook.

Your career is your lifeline and that lifeline deserves the best representation of you…a professional headshot.  Leave the iPhone photos for facebook, we can all tell it was a selfie with bathroom lighting and attempted from 20 different angels.  Be as professional with your career as the face you want to lead you, getting a professional headshot is one of the best things you can do for your professional outlook.  They say a picture tells a thousand words.  You wouldn’t want one of those words to be negative now would you?
