Feeling blessed that I get to see all your wonderful successes in my linkedin feed. You are a thoroughly good person!

Linkedin has been a boon to those of us cold calling prospects. People just list themselves in a searchable directory so I can see what they do and call them.


The downside is the steam of insufferable messages about just how good everyone is doing.


Which posts qualify most for a throat punch?

The "good deed" posts so they can get recognition are the worst. They obviously don't realize by bragging it completely erases the good deed. #bigwormenergy

If you held the door for an old lady and didn't post it on linkedin, isn't that the same as slamming the door in her face?

I'd really like to thank - insert company that is hiring anyone and everyone (seamlessai) - for giving me this opportunity to better myself. 


From a young age, my momma always said I could be an SDR at a mid-tier company in Cleveland. 


God Bless.

There was an SDR there on LinkedIn who posted like crazy and made a huge post about how he was leaving but had learned so much after literally 3 months

CHAD can you give us a window for the announcement?  I want to get the whole family around the computer and loop in grandma on the phone so we can remember we were all together when this happened. @buckets1

Idk even know what to post on LinkedIn anymore. I feel like anything I post is wrong. Complain = you should be on Facebook. Be happy = I’m trying too hard. Idk what to do anymore. I just don’t post.

I'm super tired from seeing all those group masturbation posts over linkedin especially ones where a company owner has his people right him how much they love him, so they can post it to the world to see. We get it...you all jerk each other off culture...let us prospect in peace.

All the BS posts about feelings and hiring ones are the worst in my opinion.
