You have a LinkedIn profile, right? But when was the last time you touched it?
Probably when you were last job hunting, right?
Suffice to say, it had been several years since I’d given any thought to my LinkedIn account, and it was due for a serious overhaul.
Enter Joshua Jordison, a former side hustler turned full-time entrepreneur (primarily in the event production industry).
Joshua, who goes by JJ, walked me through step-by-step on how to turn my LinkedIn profile from zero to hero. We went through features and options I had no idea even existed, and he also shared how he’s rubbing elbows with some big name influencers on the site.
Even with near zero effort on LinkedIn, I’d managed to build a decent-sized network and was feeling pretty good about my presence there. I even thought it was pretty cool to see people like Pat Flynn and Tim Ferriss in my “People also viewed” section … until I saw JJ’s profile that had people like Richard Branson and Barack Obama, and a network 4-5x mine in size. That’s taking it to the next level!
I’m excited to share this episode because JJ shares exactly why LinkedIn is a GREAT platform for side hustlers to build their influence, their brands, and their business. And even systematically drive traffic to your website and email list.
