It’s really, really nice to connect a face with a name!!
I’ve been having the very best time in connecting – real time and in person – with people in my LinkedIn network (those that I have not yet met).
Last Friday I had the pleasure of meeting Denverite Rick Hamrick at my favorite coffee shop in my Denver/Congress Park neighborhood – the local Daz Bog that was developed out of an old-time’y automobile service station. (On warm days, they open up the joint by raising the garage doors; the place floods with warmth and sunshine!)
Rick – a delightful fellow and creative blogger – gave me a bit of a run-down on his professional background and his life (he met his wife online), and we really connected on the issue of “connecting”!
Most folks don’t take the art of networking/connecting quite as seriously as I do, but I thought I’d try something a bit unusual with Rick. (He seemed willing and open to new ideas – something l liked tremendously about him.) So I suggested that he request LI connection with one of my newly-acquainted connections: David Phelps.
I just had a feeling that the two of them had some things in common.
Next thing I see on my perusal of happenings on my LI homepage, David Phelps and Rick Hamrick have connected. I hope that the two of them get to know one another and discover what it is that they have in common.
Watch out! When I finally meet you, I’ll be thinking about connecting you to someone in my network!
