Why I Like and Use Linkedin ProFinder

I don't know about you, but when the weather is spring-like, I sometimes have trouble focusing on work. I want to go for long walks, listen to the birds chirping, watch the tulips push their way slowly but steadily into sight, and hear the squeals of delight from toddlers and little children enjoying themselves in the park.

That's what Iwant to do. What I actuallydo is control my desire to be outside, playing, and concentrate on work.

I use a few platforms to quote on projects. These days, my favorite platform is LInkedin ProFinder, a.

Show Your Love (A Repost of Feb. 14, 2014 Blog Post)

It's Valentine's Day and it's the perfect opportunity to show the people you love how you feel about them. I'm not just referring to your husbands, wives, girlfriends, boyfriends, and children. I'm also referring to your parents, friends, cousins, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and, if they're still alive, Grandma and Grandpa: ESPECIALLY Grandma and Grandpa and especially if one has lost the other.

Valentine's Day can be lovely for those who have someone to love, but it's not such a picnic for those who don't.

Always Be Available

Anyone who is a small business owner or a professional will tell you that he has a lot of competition. It's true. There are many ways to distinguish oneself from one's competition, however, one of the best ways is to be available 24/7. I can hear the pushback and it's deafening! "Nobody should have to work 24/7!" "Are you crazy?" "Aren't I entitled to have a life?"

I'm not saying that you shouldwork24/7: I'm saying that you should be available 24/7.

#ProFinder Contest

Very few people start a business the year that they become eligible for Medicare. I launched my small business, Accentuating Service, 6 days before my 65th birthday! Since my new business incorporated some of the elements of my prior business,I wasn't entirely entering unchartered territory, however, my new business included an unfamiliar field -- that of providing concierge services. Furthermore, my prior business didn't require me to become my own SEO expert or to write blog and social media posts as I was well-known in my former profession of legal recruiting.

A Peaceful Thanksgiving Day Celebration

Thanksgiving Day was always my favorite holiday until I was 36 and my mother passed away around that time. I've never truly enjoyed Thanksgiving Day since that time.

That doesn't mean, however, that you can't enjoy the holiday. This Thanksgiving Day comes after an especially contentious election season.There are bound to be some relatives who want to talk about it, find out how you voted, and either gloat or complain about the outcome of the election. If I were you, I wouldn't get sucked into that conversation.

Fantasy Relationships

There is a lot of chatter about online dating, but very little discussion of the fantasy relationships that are spawned by this means of connecting.

My definition of a fantasy relationship is a relationship that occurs between people who never meet in person. The people email and/or phone each other, frequently or occasionally, and might develop feelings for each other, but never take it to the next step, i.e., they never bring it into the real world.

There are a number of possible reasons why these interactions remain in cyberspace.

Be a Good Neighbor

I lived in a house until young adulthood. What I remember of our immediate neighbors is a young couple with a son and a vicious dog named Shadow and a wealthy elderly couple, on the other side of our house, who always owned Cadillacs. The woman was lovely and the man was a cigar-smoking braggart. I, also, remember good relations between my family and our neighbors.

When you live in a high-rise building, you experience a wide range of types, some of whom aren't all that desirable as neighbors. Since I live on the ground floor of my building, I mostly experience my neighbors in the laundry room.

Charming

Have you ever encountered someone who spoke with you for only a short time, but who made you feel very special? Have you ever wished that you could charm people in the same way that you were charmed?

You can. Although some people are naturally charming, I think that it's possible to learn how to be charming.

People are easily charmed by someone who is genuinely interested in them. How do you show your interest in someone? Ask the person questions about himself, his work, his life, his family, his interests, and so on, and pay attention to his answers.

How to Be a Good Friend

If you live and work in the New York metro area, there's a strong possibility that you live your life on steroids, figuratively-speaking. You move around at the speed of light, you multitask, you have to-do lists in a few places, you go from one barely-finished task to the next, and you feel stressed out a lot of the time. Is this a good way to live? Not really. Is there anything that you can do about it? Probably not, unless you're wealthy enough to hire people to assist you and most people aren't.

Be Unforgettable

We all like to think that we make an impact on others and that we are memorable. The problem is that many folks meet and interact with so many people, even in one year's time, that it's highly unlikely that they can remember everyone whom they've met.

That's why it's essential for business owners to keep their and their company's names in front of past, current, and potential clients on a regular basis.

There are a number of ways to remind clients of your existence. You can do as I do and send ecards on a regular basis; you can send regular newsletters; you can send articles of interest and/or invitations to events that would interest your clients; you can take your clients for lunch or drinks, etc.
