4 Lessons About Making Money and Giving Back

This post was sponsored by Regions Bank, member FDIC. All opinions are my own. I recently attended a tremendous event called “Making Moves While Giving Back”, a Regions Next Step – Real Talk event series at the Gathering Spot in Atlanta.   It had some of the brightest and best young leaders in the city, such as Gwen Cole, Joey Womack, Briana Holmes, and Labriah Lee talking about how they have taken control of their lives professionally while also being able to give back philanthropically in the community.  For anyone wanting to lead a “boss” life personally, professionally and philanthropically, this event filled the bill because it really got to the root of how to be a good decision maker in your financial life including great advice on how to reach the goals that you want to achieve.

The entire speech was entertaining, but one statement he made during the speech stuck out to me when he discussed the new world of Linked In. He shared a comment something to the effect of I accept you as a connection and you stick your tongue down my throat. I laughed at first, but then I thought to myself, “What in the world has happened with some basic etiquette?” Since I have roughly 5,000 followers myself, people ask to get connected to me all of the time. Here’s a recent scenario of what happened, and then I’ll share my three very simple tips for LinkedIn etiquette because apparently companies aren’t training their sales people anything except to be robots and just keep clicking the send button. An individual on LinkedIn asked to be connected with me.  I chose to accept the connection (as I’m ...
