And yet, it is STILL one of the most overlooked (and easiest to fix) complaints that I hear about relationship building.

5 Quick Tips to Leverage Your Use of LinkedIn in the New Year

Among my most popular posts last year were those dedicated to talking about LinkedIn, which tells me that it continues to be the tool that resonates most in the legal industry. I know that it’s in part because it’s become such a robust and useful platform, but I also suspect that it’s in part because some of us are still hoping that there’s a silver bullet out there when it comes to networking and relationship building.

Even when you’re using social media, which can supersize your efforts, you still need to have goals, develop a plan, and invest time and effort in order for it to pay off for you.

This week, rainmaking trainer and coach, Jaimie Field, gets very personal about her story, and “Big Hairy Audacious Goals” for 2020. It’s a must read that I think will really resonate with you.
