gradeADo you project an “A” level on your LinkedIn profile?

No, there’s no ranking that way on LinkedIn, but that is a mental rating you get by the casual reader of your personal and company profile.

So, asked another way, do you want to do business with anyone or any firm that is a less than an A?

Do you trust someone who comes across as a B-?


I know I want to be in the honor roll and refer others in the honor roll too.

But if I refer you, you had better have a stellar LinkedIn profile as well.

And if you expect to be approached by strangers on possible business through LinkedIn, you have to look like the smartest kid in the class.

Quality attracts quality.
