As a seriously focused career individual in my days of health care I lived to update my profile, and keep everything current, seeking to network with individuals on LinkedIn. The goal was to expand my brand, increase my exposure, and make a niche for myself professionally.
Today I am a small business owner, artist and enthusiast for building economic incubator connections. To that end LinkedIn is a key connection for my business. My blog (this blog) is connected and each time i post a new article, LinkedIn shows the update.
It has become a connectivity for the expansion of the “Images in Bloom” brand. Not so much about my old professional credentials, but about the new pursuit, the joy of small business and the connectivity to the artists and art community we are growing to know.
I also found a great article that explains why doing LinkedIn has relevance to each of us. It is from enterpreneur.com :
