Is your LinkedIn Photo showing you in diapers? Does that shot of you in the staff directory still show the guy in the background with his shirt off or even is your dating profile pic. a bit misleading?

Headshots are not just for celebrities anymore, they are now commonly used for business marketing.
When you own or run a business, you are your face with your business. That’s why it so important that you have a quality, current headshot in your marketing portfolio.

Anchorspace is holding a Headshot Day in January 2018. This will be your chance to get some good basic digital profile pictures for  your portfolio needs are without paying for or having to find the time for a full portrait session. Simply give us 30 minutes of your time.
Yes, we’re giving you time to recover from the Holiday binges to prepare too!

Appointments with photographer, Melinda Rice-Schoon, will be available 9am – 4.30pm on Monday, January 29th on the hour and half hour. You will receive 3 digital images with full rights for your personal use.

Ladies Who Launch is a YWCAMDI program facilitated by our very own Nicole Ouellettewill. The group of MDI women business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs will  meet for a period of five months to help the businesses involved launch and grow. The work of the group will culminate in an expo that all women owned businesses are invited to participate in sometime during the month of May.

This idea for the group evolved organically through the community. During the Fall of 2017, the YWCA MDI hosted a Work From Home Summit, inviting women who were either running or considering starting businesses, whether part or full time. The outcome of the brunch meeting, in addition to sharing resources and ideas with one another, was an idea of setting up a group that would meet regularly not only to support each other in business but to plan an expo to showcase all women owned businesses on MDI in the spring.

If you would like to be part of this program, please contact YWCAMDI
