LinkedIn Has Been Listening

Linkedin is now shinier and more functional than ever! I haven't had time to go through all the new features yet, but here are my favorite three new features so far:

I imagine there will be more I'll have to say about the new improved LinkedIn over the next few months. In the meantime, go in and play around!

Inspiration for Entrepreneurs via the Olympics

With the help of Social Media, we are all surrounded by discussion about the Olympics! The only people talking online about the Olympics more than the United States are Great Britain and Australia. The media has been struggling to keep up with all the news, controversy, and highlights. 

Recently, one of my clients pointed out to me that there are a lot more competitions in the Olympics than he was privy to via his local television networks or newspaper. Out of curiosity, I looked it up and found that there were some 36 competitions with everything from Beach Volleyball to Shooting.

It would be nice if there was more time and attention afforded to some of the other sports represented at . There are some really talented and dedicated folks competing.
