Thank you to Jody (my student) for sharing this helpful video.

Ken

 

 

LinkedIn: 9 minutes can change everything

 

9 Minute Window and LinkedIn clearly provides a perfect platform to facilitate a wide number of these:

 

1. Build your network

2. Maintain relationships

3. Request recommendations

4. Document achievements and wins on LinkedIn

5. Update your status everyday

6.  Expand on your thought leadership

7. Use the power of video and create a video bio

8. Source staff

9. Research

 

Everyone is busy and time poor and so it’s easy to get distracted and lose focus on your 9 minute ritual.

To avoid this set a specific time of day for your 9 minutes of continuous career management.

 

Try to prioritise your actions for the 9 minutes so you are truly focused

 

 

9minutes change everything!

Turn off your cell phone and e-mail and shut the door.

Spend those nine minutes a day stay relevant.

Researching, Building Relationship, Keeping up with industry news.. and growing your presence. The results could surprise you.

Social Media Over The Past Decade | HubSpot | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

...To think of what “might be” a few years from now is barely fathomable but really exciting! I remember listening to the keynote speaker at the 1990 Seybold Conference talk about how books in the future would be enjoyed on electronic readers, and thinking, “not in my lifetime would electronic readers replace printed books.” We all know how that turned out.


Let’s go back and hit the high points from the past ten years. Below is a visual infographic timeline followed by a more detailed look at each year! Pay close attention to the ones that were launched in 2012; some of them have a lot of potential to be game changers!

Wouldn't want to be a 2012 grad for all the tea in China given the lackluster state of economy and hiring. Great, helpful post by maxOz may help dull the pain some. If I had it to do over again I would start my first company at 22 not 35 because 1. WHY NOT and 2. see #1. Great Scoop Michele. Marty
maxOz's comment, May 8, 2012 9:04 AM
Marty, how are you doing .Agree wholeheartedly. Although there is an advantage to being 35, older, experienced, pinch of wisdom and being able to work smarter, not harder xxx
