Here in the USA, today is a day we elect our local and state politicians to further their views and aims, at the will of the majority of the people.

As we have seen for the past 12 months, some continue to contest a prior election, others willingly jump into the new office’s exposure and intrusion, and others plot for their success in the next election.

Zero sum. You win or you lose.

Yes, we have recounts and run-off elections but in the end someone has to win and someone has to lose.

So it is with your LinkedIn persona. The population you seek to sway is either with you or not at all. “Well, I didn’t like you the first time so you get a second chance, now convince me” said no one reading your profile on LinkedIn ever.

You get one chance. And that occurs in seconds.

Take advantage of it and be scintillating right off the bat (yes, a World’s Series allusion too, because it’s that time of year too!)

Now make your profile into a home run!
