It appears my first weekend reads was valued, so here we go with week two.
I always read far and wide, which I encourage everyone to do! It’s so important to keep on top of what’s happening, trends, and more, plus it’s where you identify changes, especially the evolution of the global human hive mind. It’s certainly evolving.
I also really want to encourage everyone to read beyond your borders. This is a global crisis, and we are all impacted by the decisions taken in other parts of the world. It’s also a big, beautiful world out there, so worth paying attention to.
I share without opinion (well I’m only human) or agreement. I recommend you read them all, or the just the articles that grab your attention. Knowledge is power. There’s some funnies too.

18 Steps to An All-Star LinkedIn Profile – free until 26th May 2020
I want to help, so I’ve made the eBook version free for 60 days. I can’t do much during this time, but I am focusing on what I can control and you can control this too – taking your professional presence on social media seriously. After this pandemic is over (and it could take a long time), your professional presence is something that matters in securing work. Prioritize it!
However, if you are not in the right frame of mind to do this right now – which is completely understandable – get it now, and go back to it when you can do this.
This book is the starting point for LinkedIn success. If you want to buy it (although books aren’t shipping everywhere at the moment) it’s available on Amazon.com Amazon.co.uk Amazon.in and Flipkart. It’s also available as an eBook on Amazon Kindle, Kobo, Google Play and iBooks.
