Re: Need advice / opinions on an idea
I think you will be okay. I have a similar profile picture on my Facebook and it's been golden for me. My friends actually come to me and say "Wow your photo on facebook is awesome! How did you take it?" (Photo is not actually professional but it looks pretty professional because me and my friend took several shots to make it perfect.)
Key points for me:
-I don't brag about it, don't keep sharing it to invade people's news feeds.
-I have a story behind it, I reward people by telling the story when they ask me about the picture.
It's not about who I was or who I'm going to become.
It's about who I am. Do it right here, right now.
