Get likes from your intellect, not from your body.

Recently I have been beginning to see photo uploads that have bothering me, and it all has to do with women uploading pictures to public networks with minimal clothing. My issue here is that intelligence is far more beautiful than showing excess amount of your skin in a mirror as a like drive.

We want ourselves to be respected by our peers and respected by men but we allow ourselves to fall into the trap of exactly what we have fought so hard against.10417016_785785258113158_2653903517395523347_n

I am not by any means condemning women for uploading all photos of themselves wearing next to nothing, but I believe the purpose behind those uploads is what needs to be looked into further. Of course fitness professionals and models have pictures of themselves online with barely any clothes everyday. And their messages are very different from, “going to the gym to work on my abs”.the-internet-called-out-kim-kardashian-for-photoshopping-her-sexy-selfie

We all know that sex sells. It is easily the quickest way to memorably market your product. However you must remember that when the product is you, you are sending the message that you would prefer people to like you because of the way you look as opposed to your intellect.

I’ve got abs, I could upload a cheesy gym selfie in a crop top or in my bathes at the pool, but I don’t. I don’t because to me that is something that should be left for my private audience or even left off Social Media entirely. Let’s be clear, I am not hating on the private bathes shot on the isolated beach. I am simply bringing to light the amount of women who believe that public marketing their bodies is an effective way of gaining likes. I will not use my body on my public Social Media networks to drive my following.selfie-sundays-21-04-13-sweatforit1

What you decide to do on your personal Facebook with your friends is up to you, but what you do in the public sphere is completely different. Perhaps it is that coming from a background in Education, where a simple bathes shot could cause you to bring the ‘profession into disrepute’, that I believe that there is much more to a woman than her abs in a mirror.

I think of the public Social Media world as LinkedIn, you would never upload a profile photo of you in your bathes on LinkedIn. You would not do it because it is not professional and it does not send the right message. But on your public Instagram, you will upload several pictures of you just hanging out with your mid drift bare. Do you see the correlation?

Fitness professionals with fantastic weight loss stories, body building triumphs, marathons or swimming heats are more than able to upload skin revealing shots. As they create a story and send a message of becoming a powerful woman, however I still will make the statement that many of those shots will be just as powerful with fully clothed. (See example below) For obvious reasons, the swimmers should remain in bathing suits, as technically this is their professional uniform and totally acceptable.

To reiterate my point here, if you are marketing yourself through the use of your skin, be very careful about the message you are sending. Because as for me that message is much more credible if it is cultured from intelligence.

Below is an example of a great gym selfie that we should see more of, as it sends a really strong and realistic message:

Happy 33rd Birthday Steven Baker!

Since finishing at the St Kilda Football club in 2011, Steven has used his competitive talents with Jeunesse Global. He attributes his younger looking skin to the product range of Jeunesse Global. Jeunesse is the world’s first cosmetics range derived from Adult Stem Cells. These products work on a deep cellular level and aim to repair broken DNA, fix chromosomes and delay the ageing process.” [Source: StevenBaker.com.au]

In the short time that Steven has been working with Jeunesse he has had many successes and is now one of Australia’s top marketers of the Jeunesse Global. Steven has also been working on his new logo for J-Fire, which is his soon to be coming business team.

As one of my oldest friends, his skin is looking good these days, but this is not his only secret. He won’t leave the house without taking his AM PM Essential’s which as a nutritional supplement that aims to repair DNA cells. To Steven this means he is more active, sleeping better and his recovery time has decreased.

If you are interested in learning more about these revolutionary products that have helped Steven stay so young, please shoot him an email at info@stevenbaker.com.au and let him know you heard about it from me.
