I write this reflection every year on the LinkedIn changes and themes I deem most worthy of comment. Any day is a good day to give thanks but this Thanksgiving 2020 in the middle of a pandemic, I have accumulated these top 10 things to be thankful for (and I hope you agree):

  1. Thanks, LinkedIn, for providing a global workspace where over 722 million (up from 645 million last year) professionals can share ideas, information, articles, and interact better every year. This year was highly challenging as a result of COVID. But the market remains deep and hungry to learn LinkedIn best practices, and the demand to educate professionals in all walks of life is strongly anticipated in 2021.
  2. Thanks for giving me an outlet for self-expressing “why me”as a potential business partner. I continue to refine how I use the pronoun “I” with power verbs, graphics, video, and gestures to show my true self, in my own words, thought, and style in a narrative format. Each year’s stories are quite memorable!

Two more Monday.
