Yesterday I was so pleased to attend the Broadway show “Beautiful” a biography of Carole King, the multitalented songwriter and musician of the 1960-1990 era (and beyond!).

The theatre was sold out; no surprise, as Jessie Mueller playing Carole King won the Tony for best leading actress in a musical.

Of course, being a boomer, I was observing my own age group largely 5 +/- years older/younger than me, everywhere in the theatre, enjoying ageless music from our youth–tunes and lyrics–that defined several decades of developing music to what it is today (or I wish it were more like!).

The 1971 title song of the show starts

You’ve got to get up every morning with a smile on your face. And show the world all the love in your heart. Then people gonna treat you better.”

topofmountainSo I ask: do you show yourself in the best light, in every way, including LinkedIn, so that your potential business and life partners treat you better back?

Boomer or not, older or younger, please take a hard look at your LinkedIn profile. Are you smiling inside and out? No? Change it this morning, please.
