You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it. 

Edith Head

My experience of having worked in and with a wide range of professional platforms from culinary to counsel, has led me to believe that it is critical to have a good headshot.  LinkedIn, Google+, Facebook, web, marketing, blogs, you name it, these days your phone photo or snapshot won't cut it! It is the first thing people look at, which makes it the first impression people have of you. Make it great!
