… sent an email to someone who had endorsed me on LinkedIn.
Not a close friend by any means; just someone I know from long ago.
I said thanks, told him what I was up to and asked him the same. A couple of hours later, he sent a nice reply.
Every day, we are each presented with quick, easy opportunities to keep our respective networks alive.
Are you making the most of them?
Not only are we given the opportunity to keep our networks alive, it can be so much fun doing so too! I bet it was nice to catch up and happy to receive a nice reply at the end of the day.
It was on both counts, Steve. In fact, not only is this kind of thing effective as a marketing tool, but it removes that “solo professional isolation” that so many people like us feel. Pre-Internet, it was a lot harder to get your fair share of other people if you worked solo!
