Connections are all around us. To me connection is a positive word. It means I have a link with someone that, generally speaking, is a good one.
Some connections remain for a long time and others are shorter. They all have their purpose and that’s OK.
How do we connect with people today? It used to be mainly through school, friends, work or family.
Today’s connections are made in all sorts of ways. Social media, chat rooms, dating sites etc. LinkedIn is one.
I would like to know more about people I connect with, but how do I do it? At what stage does contacting someone via message or email become a nuisance? What is the LinkedIn etiquette?
We are all on LinkedIn for a reason. Why else would we make the effort to be on here otherwise?
I am here to connect with people and hopefully meet them to see who they are and what they do. My livelihood depends on making connections to get work. Being a small independent business is difficult but I love what we do. Making a difference to someone is a rewarding place to be. Even if only one person that attends a workshop learns and changes something in a positive way, it’s worth it.
What do other small companies do to get business? I know this is relevant to a lot of people!
