You don’t want to be reppin’ yourself with any of these…

Rightly or wrongly, us humans often make snap judgements about people based on their image. That could be someone at a social gathering, networking or event, or of course, online.

With that in mind, it’s important to think about how our social media avatars represent us. Sure, you don’t need to have your face as part of yours, in-fact, you don’t HAVE to do anything. It’s your face and your online place.

If you are going to put yourself out there, in say the ‘professional’ environment of LinkedIn, then what should you avoid? Watch this for live renditions of:

  • 🤶 The ‘Christmas Party’
  • 📉 The ‘Serious Business Person’
  • 😉 The ‘Gun Winker’

Like that? Give me a 👏 please! Check out more of my videos and stuff at
