Top 1% of Linkedin Viewed Profiles – Hooray…… Now What?

I was thrilled to get the attached notification from Linkedin that I had one of their top 1% viewed profiles of their total 2 million members. And yet, it got me thinking: what next?

That question had me immediately back onto my Linkedin profile posting that I wanted to be the #1 viewed profile on their site. But not as a result of a numbers game, ego or a competitive nature – more so because of the support, engagement, teaching and expertise that can be shared with those linked in with me, or want to be.

It made me get excited about NOT linking in with just anyone, or just going out and putting a status update so I get into the feeds of those in my network; increasing my links. I wanted to become an influencer of change – just like what I do with my clients and my own life. I wanted to leverage those relationships – those virtual, to learn myself, to gain new business acquaintances, radio show guests, and more. I wanted to start and contribute to the dialogue that is impacting women and men in business.

So, my new goal is that #1 position (even if I will never know I am)… and doing so by contributing great content, having great dialogue with my network, and sharing expertise, advice and tough love as I do with my immediate network. I want to be an influencer of change… contributing to the lives of those that spend time to link in with me.

BUT KNOW – if you have not worked with me or engaged directly with me, you do NOT have to endorse my skills and talents. You want to maintain the integrity of your own endorsements, as well as those of others, by ensuring that the endorsements are coming from a source that has direct experience with you. I am just saying.
