LinkedIn is not Facebook. Authenticity is key, but remember that you can be personal without being private.
– Keep your profile elevated with a meaningful About section that reflects a two-minute pitch of how you would introduce yourself in person. Give it some authentic professional motivation, philosophy, and passion.
– Find your own rhythm for content creation. Consistency may help keep you accountable, as well as creating predictability with your followers.
– Flex your thought leadership. Source content and summarize it with a point of view that creates conversation. Do the same when engaging with others’ content by adding your own insight.
It is a privilege to have platforms that democratize access and voice. Use it well to serve, and most of all, have FUN!
