Does your photo create the right emotional response you want people to have when they see you online? Does your picture look like someone others would want to get to know or do business with? Are you using a photograph in your online profiles and social media platforms or are you using an avatar?
I can’t stress enough the importance of a photograph for this main reason: People will often remember a face before they remember a name. Whatever your business goals are, a personal photo is super important. I recently took new pictures in preparation for launching my own branded website where I’m telling my story “Michele Ruiz, My Life as a Latina Entrepreneur”. I have taken many professional pictures over the years as a former news anchor so I’ve learned some secrets from the pros. I share them in this vlog so you can take your winning picture!
I’m a former news anchor/reporter turned entrepreneur. I blog about my Life as a Latina Entrepreneur which includes being a Mom, a Latina woman in the business world, and an entrepreneur. I share tips, know-how, lessons I’ve learned and insights I think may be helpful to you as I launch my next company. Hope you’ll join me! You can follow me on my website MicheleRuiz.com, on my Facebook Page , Twitter (@micheleruiz01), LinkedIn and YouTube vlogs.
