"In todays’ very social yet very transparent world, it seems to me that those influencers whose end game is the money, the popularity—whatever internal goal they have—won’t over time, be nearly as influential as those who advocate for those brands and products or causes that they truly care about."  - The #LinkedIn Diva

Handy tips, I always feel a bit nervous, and feel like I may be invading speakers once they finish.

Introduction
I don’t work for LinkedIn® but my fans call me "The LinkedIn Diva".

I am one of the most-connected women on LinkedIn. Forbes has twice included me in their Top 50 Social Media Power Influencers and currently ranks me as the #9 woman on this list.

My partner, Mike O’Neil and I are The LinkedIn Rockstars and co-host "RockTheWorld with LinkedIn."

My latest book, "Keep It Real" which discusses being courageous and transparent online is scheduled for a Spring 2014 release.

At Integrated Alliances, we are relationship-driven business development experts; we're authentic and we can help YOU be a Rockstar in YOUR industry.

We teach corporate teams and key professionals like you how to build & protect your online presence, establish a strong online network, find your unique online voice, and empower your business results.

The three reasons for my success: Passion. Persistence. Courage.

I invite you to follow me, connect with me, favorite me, read me, watch me, be inspired by me. And if you choose to walk part of my journey with me, please let me know. I appreciate the inspiration that is you to empower the work that I love to do.

► If you are a professional who wants to take charge of your online presence, take us on a test-drive: http://RockLinkedIn.com. We are The original LinkedIn trainers, and since 2006 have created learning content. Here you will find for free more than most people sell in an entire package.

We met Dr Char and friends at Prior Lake Days... went to that just to get out of the home office for a few hours! We're really glad we did and that we met. We took advantage of their introductory offer and I can say it has been a life-changing experience for us. The team at Northern Life make it easy, affordable and convenient to have schedule regular visits and keep them. In particular, I have RA and Fibromyalgia, both very painful conditions. Dr Char is gentle and can tell with a touch when she needs to be more so. I love their open environment; I've watched her treat each person individually, meeting each person's unique needs. We'll be here a long time.

Like most other people, we found the front desk person who checked us in to be very curt and seemingly unhelpful. After working out details she did provide an upgrade to a room with an ocean view. Like I've seen other people say, the housekeeping staff has been great! No problem with any reasonable request, polite and helpful. I tipped them each day I was so happy with their service.
