Although I did not know a great deal about Linkedin when I was first invited to sign up about a year ago, I can only tell you that as a professional marketer in training, I am delighted and inspired to network with other professionals.  As a young musician, my late Uncle Irv advised me to always play with musicians who are better than me.  In much the same way, hanging out with the pros and those in the know at Linkedin  are exactly what the doctor ordered.

If Golf is your game, do everything in your power to play a round or two with the best at your favorite country club.  Or better still, position yourself with colleagues who will invite you to their favorite country club even if you cannot afford to frequent that club due to financial constrictions.  It is all in the company you keep that can have everything to do with making you a better person, better networker and be on top of your game and before you know it, you too will be in a better position to join more exclusive clubs and will be sought out by others.

I know from experience.  With just a limited knowledge of sound recording, once I decided that I wanted to do professional recordings, I hooked up with the best of the best in my immediate network which included musicians and studio trained musicians from the Berkley College of Music in Boston and a producer who was able to get me into one of the best recording studios in Boston with their affiliate Studio based out of New York.  And by engaging in this process, I learned everything from laying quality tracks, music sequencing, bringing in some of the best musicians to play on my projects, and overseeing the entire manufacturing and marketing process from A to Z.  That is the power of hanging out and learning from the best of the best.

If you have not already done so, I would like to encourage you to join Linkedin today without delay.  To assist you in going about doing this the right way, use this video as your first stepping stone to realizing your personal and professional success with the aid of Linkedin with its millions of pros who are the best in their respective field.

To your ongoing success and always be sure to celebrate today and every day with an attitude of gratitude!  Michael Barrett
