Cover-Photo-yetunde-shorters-article-5aThe African Millennial Photographers have arrived and their visual representation of this generation is incredibly colorful, sharp and world-class. As they learn more they’ll share with us all.

It’s finally happening. You’re tuning in to the power of personal branding and the power of your image to influence others and tell your story. Personal Branding is coming to life in a way we have never experienced before. Slowly going are the days when CEO’s and COO’s could hide behind their company name. Now more than ever, people connect with people and it is imperative that you put your best and full self forward.join-icyacademy-3gm1

 

In my 15+ years of PR/Branding and Marketing, one of the key ingredients to personal branding that can almost immediately change perception of you, is your pictorial image. The choice to use an amateur photographer or a professional is the difference between an engaging personal brand and no interest in how awesome you are.

The power of images goes a long way to shape our perception. I know there are many photographers in Nigeria; these photographers are photographers I will recommend and will gladly work with to brand my own clients.

So I have put together a list of 15 Personal-Branding Photographers You Should Know. So, when you are ready to invest in your own personal brand shoot, you have options that can help you speak to the world with incredible images.

our-wedding

Our one- year anniversary showed up quickly it’s 4.25.16. I must say in my new role as Wife, I have grown a WHOLLLE lot lol.  I love being a couple to hang out with my soulmate and laugh, cry, share, pray together. The biggest lesson I have learned is that Love in it’s purest form transforms and heals. Laughter is such an important part of us too. We find laughter often I really like that. Growing can be hard. I have also learned because it requires you step into uncharted territory and that for anyone, is always scary, but the results are incredible. I like results, so I am all for growing and learning. My husband always talks about how his grand father said “there is nothing natural about marriage, that is why you need SUPER NATURAL power to guide you.”

Because of our union, I have a better relationship with God thanks to my hubbs. Here is to 50 and 60 and 70 more years.

Your Purpose Needs YOU. EMBRACE IT

Yetunde-Shorters-main-banner-6[tm_quote style=”4″]Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity. ? Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist [/tm_quote]

 

This I know to be true:

  • Every experience, as with our own birth, has a lifecycle
  • If we accept and understand the above, we understand that challenges are just a part of that lifecycle…IT TOO SHALL PASS
  • You have a unique set of gifts, talents, and abilities that can change lives
  • Fear is the biggest obstacle in the way of stepping into your purpose
  • You matter, even if you don’t believe it yet
  • The sooner you step into your purpose and embrace your fear, (frankly our fears get no love so they act out) the sooner you experience unlimited joy

Ever since I was a kid, I have been aware that I am here to do something simple yet important. I had my first memory about seeing a man riding a house outside our window when I was just about two years old. It scared the crap out of me and I have been paying attention to my experiences ever since. When I meet and see people, I can see and feel their greatness; I almost always get excited and find ways to motivate them and get them pumped about their lives.

The question is, Are you okay with having a simple purpose? Click To Tweet
What I have discovered, is that most of us expect our purpose to be grand —a monumental thought or gesture that forever etches our names in history—but it’s not always that fancy. The question is, Are you okay with having a simple purpose? Your purpose may be to make people laugh, to be a listening ear to a friend in pain, to inspire others with your words, to record history, to express love through dance, to document stories through photography, to solve data equations because you see patterns and can identify better ways for people to live and do things, to create beauty out of fabric, metals, or even paper—or maybe anal retentiveness is your gift to the world to help bring order and peace to the lives of those who need it most.

The point is, no matter how simple your “thing” is, understand it, accept it, and know that you matter. Because there is someone, or people, on this God-given earth who can only respond to you. Not responding to your purpose is a dis-service to your soul and to those that need you. Letting fear stand in the way of living purposely is trivial. As Paulo Coelho said in the Alchemist, The fear of suffering is actually worse than the fear you are running away from. Embrace your fears and accept your purpose, no matter how simple it may seem.

 

To keep your purpose clear, resist getting distracted by this world of “STUFF.” What you are born to do is more important than the “STUFF” we get caught up in. You are more valuable than that. Step into your purpose and accept that you will have triumphs and challenges, which are part of the lifecycle of your story. YOU CAN HANDLE IT!  Prepare to do your part so that God, The Universe, Allah, luck, or whatever your call it, can meet you halfway. No more excuses.

NO MORE EXCUSES. LETS DO THIS!

 

[tm_divider type=”dashed” space=”30″]It is time to step FULLY into your purpose because you matter, and others are counting on you and your gifts. [/tm_divider]

 

I am ready. Are you ready?

3 MUST HAVE LISTS FOR A SUCCESSFUL YEAR

Learning to maximize the power of your network is one of the ways to build support and wealth for your passion or purpose. Click To Tweet

With social media and what may seem like access to the whole world, entrepreneurs are inundated with contacts with not real system for cultivating those relationships. Learning to maximize the power of your network is one of the ways to build support and wealth for your passion or purpose. Below are 3 lists every entrepreneur needs to plan and prepare for a successful year ahead. Click To Tweet

POWER LIST

Your POWER LIST should have the full names, phone numbers, emails, websites, social media links etc. of 15-20 of your top influencers/6-7 figure earners in your network. These are people you should have or be cultivating a relationship with. Look into your LinkedIN, take the time to sit and think about people you hang out with. You’re probably connected to powerful and influential people. You need to learn to tap into and foster relationships with your power list. They have skills that you don’t have and you can be of value to them if you are more intentional about the connection you build.

WISH LIST

Your WISH LIST should have the names of at least 5 people that you want to meet, learn from or build connections with in the next year. Write their names down, follow them on social media, and spend the time to engage them on things that are of interest to them. Respond to their feeds. Share thoughtful insights on their post. People remember people who engage their interests. It’s about sincerely engaging them. As you build those online relationships, your wish list can cross over to your power list or even to real true friendships where you both provide value to each other. No one is too big for you to wish to meet. NO ONE. Get on it.

TRIBE LIST

Your TRIBE LIST is one of the most powerful lists you will ever have. Your tribe list should have 20 -10,000+ people who love, like, engage are interested or are fans of yours. They are champions for your cause that you should engage with frequently, to build your “tribe culture”. They see you as a leader in whatever it is you’re great at. They have the same values or close as you do.  They may not be related to you by blood, but they are related by virtues, ideals and a sense of culture. Your tribesmen and women will be the ones to buy your book, come see you talk at a live event or toot your horn to the world even if you never asked. They are the ultimate village.

In The next year you get to tap into your lists and build that business empire you’ve been talking about. IT IS POSSIBLE. Click To Tweet

noun: tribe; 
1. any aggregate of people united by ties of descent from a common ancestor, community of customs and traditions, adherence to the same leaders, etc.

These top lists require you take the time and sit to prepare them. Spend those 60 minutes to brainstorm on them. Have an excel sheet for the Power List and Wish list and you can use a mail service (awber, malchimp etc.) for the tribe list.
