The LinkedIn platform is an excellent tool if you’re trying to establish your self as a thought leader, looking for employment or promoting your small business. But how many of us are really using LinkedIn to “connect” or to “network” with one another. Sure we say congrats, endorse each others skills and write very nice comments but at the end of the day are we really connecting and adding value to the LinkedIn community.

Now I understand that everyone is busy but spending one hour a week on LinkedIn, talking  to colleagues on the phone or meeting for a cup of coffee can go a long way. So the next time someone wants to chat or invites you out for a cup of coffee, just say Yes.
