1. Episode #30: Be independent. Deborah Brown-Volkman 22:11

At age 40, Lynnaire had an epiphany, “I am going to be unemployable in the years ahead. I need to do something about it now.” After years of toxic work environments, she’d had enough. “I’ve got to get out of here. I will do something on my own.”

Fast forward 20 years later, Lynnaire has accomplished her goal.

She has become:

  • The #1 LinkedIn expert in her home country, New Zealand
  • A top 20 LinkedIn expert worldwide
  • The author of several books, including “Link∙Ability, 4 powerful strategies to maximise your LinkedIn success” AND “LinkedIn, Business Gold – Building Awareness, Authority and Advantage with LinkedIn Company Pages, co-authored with Michelle J Raymond”

She has also:

  • Attracted international attention (and clients)
  • Guested on numerous podcasts (including this one)

Lynnaire believes we all have a personal brand. Showcase yours and stay employable no matter what career or business you choose to be in.
