A perfect stranger reached out to me on LinkedIn because she Googled something about Christian entrepreneurship, and I came up at the top of the results. She asked me for some advice on a virtual conference she was speaking at. I could hear her heart to want to serve at the highest level. At the end of our conversation, I congratulated her on having the desire to serve her audience with the best possible information.
Our level of effectiveness on LinkedIn (and in any business relationship) is directly proportional to the amount of care and concern we have for our followers. Only when we acknowledge people and add value to them will we have the potential for a rewarding connection.
