More good news, Everyone! :-)

Joe Bartling has agreed to let me offer all new MLPF
members his book, "How To Double Your Income in Six

Joe has done an outstanding job in introducing us to
networking via the Linkedin way.  And he's done it in
a succinct, yet sensible and clear style.  Very easy
to read and very informative.

"if you haven't already done so, I strongly, strongly,
strongly  encourage you to read the book!!  Within 90
minutes with it, you'll  feel better about your
knowledge of Linkedin!"

A few other ways of getting to Joe's book:

1. Go to the Files section on My Linkedin Power
Forum and look for  the PDF for "How to Double Your
Income in 6 Months Using Linkedin" or

2. Patiently and carefully cut and paste the long

[LinkedinBlogger] Linkedin Montage at Montage-a-Google

Here's one for those of you who may be more visually
oriented than text oriented. 

Grant Robinson's Montage-a-Google permits you to
search Google based on images.

The difference?

It builds the search results into a montage.

Once the montage is created, you'll be able to click
on different parts of the montage to look at search

I typed in the word "LinkedIn" and entertained myself
for a lot longer than I'm gonna admit! :-)

Here's the URL:

Hi, Everyone,
Many of you have privately and publicly asked me about
My Linkedin Power Forum becoming an officially
recognized Linkedin group. Of course, being an
officially recognized Linkedin group would allow us to
use our group icon on Linkedin to help our ~1,500 MLPF
members to more easily recognize and network with each
other on Linkedin. 

Well, there’s a lot of new Linkedin power coming your
way!!  I'm happy to bring to your attention a note
from Linkedin positively addressing this issue, at

In a message written to MLPF by Robert Leathern,
LinkedIn Director of Marketing, we were told:

<snip>"MLPF should have its own LinkedIn group quite
soon, it is in process (one thing to keep in mind is
that groups are launched on a two-week cycle)." Robert
Leathern, LinkedIn Director of Marketing<snip> For
your reference this message is in our archives at MLPF
Message 4463 Fri Jul 1, 2005 9:47 pm From that date
stamp, I believe we should be officially up and
running by July 15th!!

setting up the group on Linkedin, we will share the
appropriate link with you.   Of course, as members of
MLPF, to make it easy for you to become a member of
the official MLPF group on Linkedin, you will
automatically receive your invitation the same day.

business associates who may need a business or career
boost to join us both here on My Linkedin Power Forum
