Taken 2 years ago Taken a couple of weeks ago
I am just wondering from those that know me if I look the same as my profile picture that was taken 2 years ago. I had 2 recent experiences lately that got me thinking about this and the power of having a complete profile on your social networking sites and blogs.
1. I was leaving an office building during the day and passed a lady who turned around and stopped me and said – “Are you Naoma?” I am usually pretty good with faces and not so good with names. “I am your Facebook friend!” And she told me her name and I instantly remembered her name and was glad that she recognized me from such a random encounter.
2. Last week I went to a business luncheon and ended up sitting next to a realtor who said “Hey Naoma!” Again, a woman I had not met in person before but same thing “ I am one of your friends on Facebook and I also know your husband”
All I can say is – how cool is that? You can turn your social networking profiles into actual business opportunities!
I can’t begin to tell you how successful being consistent and having an online presence is to our everyday business.
Do I need an updated picture for all of my profiles? My professional one was taken before babies 🙂 I might have a few more gray hairs than 2 years ago! 🙂
