Linkedin just keeps growing. It’s a great way to connect professionally or just catch up. It doesn’t replace picking up the phone or connecting in more personal ways. I believe it will continue to grow as social networking services continue to be the thriving business model online.

The chasm between personal and business continues to diminish. Every kind of connection brings us closer to ways we can help each other have success. How are you connecting?

Random Steeeler Fan

Awhile a back I had made a friend, Steve, watching Steeler Football.  I’m from Pittsburgh and a lifetime fan.  Out "Steeler spot" closed.  It was a popular gathering place for many Pittsburgh Steeler Pittsburgh_steelersloyal.  This particular acquaintance and I met somewhere new – Yagers in Folsom – to catch the season opener today against the Houston Texans.  The doors were locked, nobody home at Yagers.  Steve, thinking quickly called a neighbor friend that he knoew was hooking up the game in his garage.  Watching the game in lawn chairs in our new friend’s garage.  Do you love it?  It was a great time.  And a cool coming together as Pittsburgh fans do – with nothing in common but a love and loyalty for a hometown and it’s much beloved team. 

P.S. The owner of the restaurant and bar were sorry to have missed us.  You bet we’re going to see if this can be the new Steeler spot.  We’ll see if they can get some breakfast going for us Pacifc time zone fans.
