Today's LinkedIn Nugget

No one gets noticed for being mediocre

medicreI am curious.  Why would you want to show a mediocre, boring, lackluster profile on LinkedIn?

I can’t tell you how many people I speak to, meet, or coach whose profiles are a total, seemingly deliberate, disconnect from their real business persona. When I admonish then (usually kindly), they remark, “Oh I don’t think anyone cares or sees my LinkedIn profile. So what?”

So what?

Choose your direction: by being lazy what you are saying in effect is that you make little effort to make yourself more physically and intellectually engaging as a business partner. As a colleague.

Just a stranger.

And there’s little stranger than not even trying hard in business, IMHO.

Be amazing-er. Or said another way, no one dances with a wallflower.
