What motivates you? This post by +Jennifer Mattern will have you thinking (I hope). ☺

I forgot about all of that! LOL

Got a kick out of editing. When we got to the point where it recorded my rant & the three of you couldn't hear me b/c of Skype issues, I choose to just imagine you were so enthralled that you couldn't bear to interject. ;)

My take on LinkedIn ProFinder http://simplystatedbusiness.com/linkedin-profinder/

What do you think?
LinkedIn ProFinder matches freelancers with businesses seeking specific services. Too bad LinkedIn limits access to what could be the best talent.

Introduction

Standing out in a sea of business writers is no small task. Try distinguishing yourself with a name like Cathy Miller.

But I like simple – both in my name and my business writing. I believe simple is better.

Check out my business communication site, Simply stated business, for tips and downloads for better business communication. I also have a health care blog, Simply stated health care, which helps keep health care simple and informative. Visit my blogs and share your thoughts.

I have been writing professionally for over 30 years. Variety seems to be the key to my experience. I simply love to learn new things and share the knowledge.


Bragging rights
Another passion of mine is participating in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure-60 miles in 3 days. I have been participating since 2003. I simply cannot walk away. http://Why 60 Miles.com shares my journey.
