So, I ditched my outdated professional headshot
I did so in favor of one where I am sitting on the back deck of a kayak. I get it could cost me business, that I am not professional enough. That’s fine. Those are not my clients.
The reverse is true as well. While the new image may have cost me opportunities, it has generated a few connections thanks to the kayaking element. It has sparked a few conversations as well. While none of these have been business-related, that is fine with me.
Some of my best, longest lasting business relationships grew out of personal ones. The best business ones have become personal.
