    Do you go to conferences and feel awkward, not knowing what to do or what to say? It’s happened to me. In fact in the last month I was a speaker at one conference and attended another one. Both conferences made it easy to connect with people, though all of them don’t make that extra effort. Even if you have the opportunity to meet new people, it can be awkward to walk up to a stranger. You can use LinkedIn effectively before, during and after the conference, and you don’t have to have that awkward experience. Before the conference: Look up the speakers and learn more about them, and…

    Hello My Name Is…awkward conversation. Hello My Name Is…sweaty and uncomfortable. Hello My Name Is…can I go home now? For many of us, traditional networking is the stuff of nightmares – from the “Hello My Name Is” sticker stuck haphazardly on your suit jacket to the pressure to be as charming as Jimmy Fallon with every new person you meet. Personally, I don’t love these kinds of cold-start networking events – but as part of my professional life, I do love staying in touch with my network, asking them for advice, and helping people out with questions or…

    When my daughter Eliza was one, she was diagnosed with a genetic neurological disorder. Doctors told us she would never walk or talk. Thankfully, they were wrong. Although delayed and requiring one-on-one assistance for safety, Eliza is now 8 years old and does walk – she even runs and has plenty to say to her mother and anyone else who’ll listen! My marriage, however, didn’t survive, and in June of 2013, I found myself divorced,  with sole custody of my children, contemplating my next move. One night, I woke up with the words “Special Globe” ringing in my head. The next morning, I…

    Wouldn’t it be great if you could connect with your ideal clients before they needed your product or service?  And wouldn’t it be even more amazing if you knew immediately when something occurred that triggered their need for your service?  Imagine running an appliance repair service and receiving an email any time someone in your service area has a broken appliance – before they start the process of finding someone to fix it. Or running a Chinese restaurant and knowing any time one of your regular customers gets a craving for Chinese food. Science fiction?  Well, yes. …

    Do you want to be more involved with LinkedIn and social media this coming year? Or have you been on LinkedIn for a long time and you’re not getting results from it — a new job, more clients, advancing your career? And this year you want to change that? One way to do that is to write social media goals and make them as specific as you make your sales or job search goals. When I first started using LinkedIn, I put my profile up and didn’t do anything with LinkedIn. LinkedIn and social media were not part of my New Year’s resolutions or goals.
