First of all… curious who made you the arbiter of what does and does not belong on LinkedIn?
Second… LinkedIn is a “social” network, and a place for conversation that the person posting wishes to foster. I am the person, and this is the conversation I wish to foster.
Third… this is incredibly relevant to business relationships. I want people I do business with to know how I feel about a myriad of topics… that sharing, engagement and conversation is what builds relationships and relationships are at the heart of my business, and hopefully yours too.
Fourth… I want to reach as many people as possible with this message therefore I post to to every network where I have followers. Point made… it reached you, for better or worse.
Fifth and finally… my blog, TedRubin.com, is called “Straight Talk” because I say what I mean and mean what I say, and speak from my heart. As Dr. Seuss so aptly stated (or so we believe), and a quote I repeated to my daughters over and over again…
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
