I'm not working that hard. Refuse to make 120 marketing calls to get a JO (when you figure you only place one in five JO).
Trying to work relationships. Also have a new Business Development Partner in Israel. Yep, still recruiting mostly for Israelis. Have a Principal in Boston who is Israeli.
The city bought the HW Store and is going to develop the block. I might have had a year or two, as I don't think they'll be able to find a developer in this environment. Phone contract came due so I moved the office back into my house.
Except for a year and a half, I had been in that office since October 1998!
Over the past year I have been experimenting how best to facilitate members being able to connect with each other. Some want to connect with everyone and some are looking for a few meaningful connections.
2-3 times per month I send a group introduction message with 10-15 new members and reintroducing others.
What this means for you is simple, do you wish to be introduced to the group?
You have 4 options from which to choose:
(A) “Open Networker” with name, email address, and LinkedIn URL as you want to connect with anyone and everyone.
(B) “General Introduction” with name and LinkedIn URL as you are specific about who you want to connect with.
(C) “Lurker” no announcement will be made as you want to be on the sidelines connecting with people as you wish.
(D) “Super Open Networker” which is (A) plus having your contact information on the group page.
A caution on the “Open Networker”, you may be inundated with invitations to connect. For some this is exactly what they are hoping for and others this could be a pain.
I do ask, if you receive invitations from members you do not want to connect with that you “Archive” the message versus “I don’t know” so the sender is not penalized by LinkedIn although how you handle this is up to you.
Again your options are (A), (B), (C), (D).
Please include your LinkedIn URL and email address you prefer to receive invitations and send to firstname.lastname@example.org
