A New Humboldt County CA Real Estate Photo that Fits My Personality.  A Change is Good!

Yesterday I uploaded a more candid (and, yes updated) photo of myself.  I figured it was time for a change, since I’m in the process of growing my hair out.

But I also made a change, because although I had a very professional photo done by some great photographer friends of mine, I constantly got comments from folks saying, “That’s really you?  Wow…you look so different in person.”

Don’t get me wrong…My friends are fabulous photographers, but sometimes when you get true headshots, add all that makeup and take off your personality glasses, you no longer look like YOU.

Not that any of those comments were bad.  They were actually great conversation starters.  However, I wanted people to look at my photo and know that if they saw me on the street, they could recognize me.

Plus I live in a community(Humboldt County) that is more laid back.  You can’t dress like a slob out here to be respected as a professional agent, but you actually stand out like a sore thumb if you wear a suit.  Business casual is usually ok.  And since Humboldt is known for its great outdoors, it’s not uncommon to see professional business card photos with a beautiful green backdrop.

Here’s the before picture you all know well:

Here’s the photo I’m considering for my new business card:

What do you think about the new look?

It definitely fits my personality 🙂

My Featured Story in the Eureka Reporter – It Was a Nice Surprise!

Posted on October 25, 2008. Filed under: About Me, Community | Tags: , , |

I got a phone call from my husband this morning telling me, “You need to read the Eureka Reporter.  You’re on the front page and they wrote a great story about you too!”

A story about me?  I knew that the Eureka Reporter was going to publish a story about the upcoming networking event for local women business owners that the Women Entrepreneur’s Institute would be hosting on Oct 9th (I volunteer my time as their Marketing Director), but I didn’t realize that they tailored the story around me.

I remember being interviewed by Ashley Bailey (Business Editor for the Eureka Reporter).  So thanks Ashley for the nice plug!

Here’s a short clip from the article, click on the link below to see the whole story.  Pretty Cool!Yeah!Yeah!

“Jessica Bigger isn’t afraid to take risks.

After a series of career changes — she had considered veterinarian school, then kicked that for a promotions gig in radio — Bigger took a leap and started her own business.

Managing her business as a realtor under Ming Tree GMAC Real Estate’s Realtor Associates is a fairly new thing for Bigger, but with the support of the Women Entrepreneurs Institute (WEI), a nonprofit organization for local businesswomen, she has been able to move forward with success…”
