A couple of weeks ago I connected with Chris Rollyson who writes the Executives Guide to LinkedIn and we had a phone conversation about what we were both doing with LinkedIn. Chris then emailed me to introduce me to Vincent Wright, saying we had to connect. I sat on the email for about a week and then emailed Vincent who suggested that I call him.
Yesterday I finally called and what a great conversation. Vincent has created close to 100 different groups under the banner of www.mylinkingpowerforum.com. All of these groups are designed to get people connecting and interacting. Many of his groups are LinkedIn based but they are meant to go above and beyond LinkedIn.
Vincent has been a long time advocate for LinkedIn, but what he’s really doing is fostering communities. He has around 9,000 people in the various groups. Some groups have a lot of members (I am number 2,552 in one) and some have a few (2 members in one). There’s bound to be a group that you can join and find value. I recommend that you start with the main group www.mylinkingpowerforum.com and then check out what other groups might interest you.
I don’t know how he finds the time but he posts various article in a number of groups. They are always positive and uplifting. If you have the time, check out his site. If you don’t have the time, find it and check out his site.
