I am hopeful that this will better position me to find my unicorn…. Okay, last piece of advice that applies to both pictures and test. You heard me, have a couple of close friends look over your profile before you send it on it’s journey into the interwebz.
Often the way we would describe or portray ourselves is different than how our best friends/loved ones would describe us - and it’s always good to make sure we’re not missing the goodies that might endear us most to our friends/family!
