And a lifetime of learnings.
June 21, 2007, I joined LinkedIn.
For nearly 13 years, my account sat dormant.
Until June 2020. One year ago.
12 months of creating. 12 months of learning. 12 months of growth. 12 months of community.
If you are wondering if creating, connecting, conversing and communicating on LinkedIn is worth it…
Here are 12 things I’ve learned that may inspire you to speak up, stand up, show up — and write up!
Relationships with wise leaders, mentors, peers and mentees
Content that inspires you, motivates you, teaches you and challenges you
With the real ‘real’ people behind the real ‘real’ words
Strike up conversations without wanting anything other than to give
A lot or a little. But just create content and create it in a way that works for you
Each and every day. It’s the best way to start finding your voice, your words and your people
Use your words, your story, your expertise to capture attention — and keep it — in your creation
Make a repository of all your posts and content offline. You won’t regret it!
Yourself to start, jump in, comment, communicate and create more!
About others. Their view, their differences, their uniqueness. Always. Care about their time, their comments, their words, their worth
…It up! If you’re not having fun or reaching your spoken or unspoken goals, change up something, anything, until you do
Last but NOT least, find your people. Those who inform you and those who inspire you
Because when you go all in on LinkedIn, the incredible LinkedIn community goes all in on you.
So, create, converse, connect and communicate.
And as you do, and as you do as you, you’ll find your voice, your words, your style—and your people.
And the people? Well, that’s truly what makes every word, every post and every day here worthwhile.
If you are on LinkedIn, what have you learned??
