- The insane ability to pick any object up with your feet.
- Negotiating with
terroristtoddlers under highly intense situations.
- Knowing every single word to 100 kid songs and being able to sing them all at a moments notice.
- Speaking of singing… Ability to turn any request into a song.
- Ability to survive a week with ONE 3 minute shower and very little sleep.
- Extremely good hearing.
- Ability to creatively disguise vegetables in toddler meals.
- Bilingual and most parents can also claim to be trilingual with most toys now offering a Spanish option. What? Toddlerease totally counts as a language.
- Master scheduler! Even if your little one has not joined any activities or isn't "on a schedule", you are still responsible for daily naps + feedings on top of feeding yourself + shopping + cleaning etc.
- The power to persuade… without a doubt, moms have mastered the power of persuasion. How else do you think a mom goes to the store without buying every toy in sight?!
- Don't treat LinkedIn like Facebook or Twitter. This site is all about business, so please no pictures of you partying the night away or status updates about your upcoming weekend shenanigans.
- Have a Profile Picture. Personally, I don't mind if you don't have a picture up. Just don't expect me to add you if I have no clue who you are or how I know you.
- Personalize Connection Requests. This goes along with #2. You shouldn't treat LinkedIn like a popularity contest. The people with the most connections does not benefit the most, this is about building quality business relationships. Start the relationship off right by telling the person specifically why you are connecting with them.
- No SPAM. This should not have to be explained.
- Once is Enough. Posting something business related about once a day is enough, please don't post something every hour (see #1).
Like I said, I am new to LinkedIn and I have much to learn about the ins and outs of using this site. I will continue to share everything I learn, but it might take a while.
