Leverage Yourself as a Thought Leader

Thought Leaders are experts in their industry because they speak, train and educate others on their area of expertise. To be most effective, you need to be seen as credible and competent and that means polishing your professional image and leveraging your online presence to be the leader people pay attention to.

Stefanie is a leading headshot and personal branding photographer and has worked in San Diego for the last 10 years. She is also “a bit of a geek,” working as an instructor at Geek Girl Tech Con and as a social media instructor since 2013.  Stefanie: “I’ve got marketing on the mind and help my clients improve their website optics and visual marketing as well as shining up their social media platforms.”
