Overview–Build a LinkedIn Group for Social Growth
Having trouble finding the right community? Build it yourself with a LinkedIn Group. Think about your favorite topic of conversation when it comes to your business. What subject do you feel most confident giving advice about? What area of expertise strikes closest to home?
