I’ve been preparing for (and am now away for) our 2011 Regional Meeting of the Americas here in Newport Beach. I’ll be writing more on that soon, but while I’m otherwise engaged, I wanted to share with you an email that I got this morning from my friend and Rainmaking expert, Jaimie Field of Marketing
And I’m back. It was a rather eventful week off for me here on the east coast, with a mild earthquake as I was staining my deck, and then having to evacuate because of Hurricane Irene over the weekend. My thoughts go out to everyone still dealing with flooding, power outages and damage – I was fortunate that my house near the bay never lost power (the yard floods on a good day, so a sump pump is a necessity) and that the damage wasn’t at all severe.
Today, we’re back to talking LinkedIn, and I’d like to focus on recommendations. Before we get into the how, let’s talk about about the why.
