Total Connection with

One must agree that good times or not-so-good times, it's prudent to make sure that you get and maintain great business contacts whether you have your own business or you're employed full time. With Linked In (, you can!

LinkedIn helps you to build your contact network by connecting you with your personal network's network, which gives you a potentially large circle of network contacts. Through "introductions", your LinkedIn messages let you contact or to be contacted through shared or mutual connections.

According LinkedIn, "Connections can introduce you to anyone in their network by forwarding an Introduction message through a chain of their trusted professionals. LinkedIn users who are two degrees away from one another can be introduced by a shared connection. The shared connection would forward an Introduction to their 1st degree connection on your behalf." (It pays to maintain really good professional relationships!)

LinkedIn also gives you the option of contacting other LinkedIn members directly. Of course, when you contact someone who's part of your network's network, you will want to put your best foot forward and be very professional.

By having a pool of resources you can easily tap, you can be reassured that no matter how good or not-so-good times are, you can make sure that you do indeed have the ability to stay afloat -- even in the roughest economic waters.

If you haven't signed up with LinkedIn, it's to your advantage to do so. And if you have an account, but haven't used it in a while, you might want to log in, update any your profile and any other information, and then reestablish your presence with your contacts and keep yourself well-connected.
