The latest episode of Your Biz, Your Rules is live and I am THRILLED to share this one with you.
In this show, I’m interviewing fabulous photographer, Karina Lyburn (the architect of MY pro photo shoot).
The key takeaways:
💛 Being visible is about putting yourself at the forefront of your business and building a brand around that. As entrepreneurs, we’re really passionate and we’re driven and we’re full of ideas and we want to share our talents and passions with the world, to show our ideal clients what it means to do what we do and just how fantastic it is. We’re having fun in our businesses and we want everyone to know this, and this is the really big one. You want people to know what it feels like to work with you before they’ve even spoken to you and you need to get all of these messages across super, super fast.
💛 Nobody can copy your photos if they truly represent you. A personal branding shoot is an empowering experience. It’s about digging deep into who you are and why you do what you do and where is it that you’re going on your business journey.
💛 Professional photos say: “Do you what, I am really good, I am bossing this. I am absolutely kicking ass. This is me on a really good day and I’m capable of really good days.” This is you like standing at the forefront of your business in all your glory, and it’s amazing. It’s a big deal.
