“…please add me to your LinkedIn network
An Anatomy of the Correct Way to Introduce Yourself: Learn from this
I don’t know about you, but when I see those words “Scott please add me to your LinkedIn network” I’m already guessing that this individual is a “lazy slacker with no manners” (I know bad attitude on my part = I’ll own it).
I Was Wrong ! Mother’s still raise their children correctly or maybe it was the Marine Corps that did the work = Semper Fi ! = looks like there’s hope after all = Look what greeted me in my inbox the other day.
What a relief to see this instead of what I was ranting about the other day (“Knock Knock Who’s There?“). Admittedly, I still had a perturbed attitude when I responded to Financial Services Professional, Brent Marini, so I decided to push it a further…
I’ll bite = “Only” because you applied some good manners reaching out to me. I am not interested nor do I need Financial Services, but if you’re adept at using InterWeb tools to help broadcast your Business Message = let’s talk and see if connecting makes sense. Share with me why you would make a good addition to my Tribe = Thank you = Cheers!
And, as any person who understands Respect replies with:
So, here we go… I’m meeting with Brent Marini at Elephants in Lake Oswego tomorrow morning = He’s EARNED some of MY TIME = come drop by and join us if you’re in the neighborhood.
Fair warning Brent = I do not need Financial Services = at it’s mention, I may have to get up and leave = Yes of course you WANT my connections = let’s see you use your Counter-Insurgency Techniques to sweet talk it out of me = I could learn a thing or two tomorrow.
Looking forward to it
= Cheers! Semper Fi !
