I started off the week with a Top Writing Voice badge! 🎖️

Published about 2 months ago • 1 min read

I dropped the ball on sending out an email last week about my LinkedIn progress, and it's primarily because life has been smacking me around lately and I haven't been able to invest the time I'd like to on the platform.

Regardless, I've still been growing on LinkedIn (standing at 399 followers at the moment) and was issued a "Top Writing Voice" badge late last week!

But the question still stands: Will I be able to hit 1,000 followers by the end of the month?

So, here's the deal...

I believe if I put out one post a day, Monday through Friday, between now and February 29th, I can hit that 1,000-follower goal.

And if I ramp up the engagement (which I have been inconsistent with), I am certain to reach my goal.

It appears as though life has stopped smacking me around (at least at the moment), but now that I mention it, I imagine life will start landing a few blows.

Anyhow, I'm gonna go work on some LinkedIn and blog posts.

He called me "The Bubble Gum Kid" — because during my childhood I went through a phase where I loved...

It has been about two decades since I was diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. Shortly after I was diagnosed, my doctor prescribed some pills. They helped with focus, but they had some other side effects, including loss of appetite, difficulty sleeping, increased anti-social behavior, etc. I didn't take the pills for very long because I didn't like the way they made me feel. I continued struggling with focus and my parents gave me the task (at age 15) to find a holistic...

Happy February! Over the next four weeks, I’ll be breaking down the exact strategy I’ll use to grow on LinkedIn from ~340 followers to 1,000. My emails will come out once a a week and it’ll include thorough explanations behind my strategy as well as progress reports. I will be as transparent as possible, and if I don’t hit my goal of 1,000… Well... then I’ll change up my strategy and do what it takes to hit 1,000! I’ve watched valuable creators grow very quickly on LinkedIn and I believe I...
