You’ve heard it before. You need to network, it can really help in your success. But yet you still hold back. It’s hard, outside your comfort zone, and (insert excuse). In today’s episode, Alan talks about the importance of LinkedIn in his own career and challenges you to take the steps you need to make the connections who will benefit you. And there are prizes for the person chosen as the winner of the challenge!
The rules of the LinkedIn Challenge are:
- Use LinkedIn and reach out to someone of interest, someone who you would like to have in your network, with the end result of having a real and substantial conversation with this person. It could be by phone, Skype, even email.
- Then email me to let me know what you did and the result. I will select one of the replies to be a future guest on the show, where I will interview you and talk about that experience. Email me at email@example.com
- The Challenge ends on March 31 2016. Any email must be received by this date.
- That not enough for you? Ok, I’m not rich, but I’ll throw in a gift certificate to Starbucks too (or something equivalent if you don’t like Starbucks) for the person selected as the guest.
