Why LinkedIn, for me, is more a journal than it is a marketing tool

Why Linkedin, For Me, Is More A Journal Than It Is A Marketing Tool &Raquo; 1Crlwhbvketvyg 5R Rmdqg

This is not my desk nor hands “You need to post less” said the LinkedIn expert I spoke to this week. “The algorithm doesn’t like it when you post so much.” He was referring to the fact that the previous week I had been posting on average 3 times a day. Consideration of the algorithm may be important for some but it’s only really relevant if the only thing that is important to you is views, likes and other such aspects. I long ago came to realise that there is more to life on LinkedIn than just trying to be the most popular person out there. How my LinkedIn usage has evolved over time When... Continue Reading

The good and the bad of being a LinkedIn obsessive

The Good And The Bad Of Being A Linkedin Obsessive &Raquo; 1Jibaqn02Oufoziqgrsuo Q

This heartrate is very erratic — my 2023’s LinkedIn impressions Almost a year ago I wrote an article titled: “Why I had to change my relationship with LinkedIn and how I did it” In it I reflected on my changing way of using LinkedIn; I was moving from being someone who would spend almost half of each working day on LinkedIn reading every article, skimming every post, wishing everyone I ever knew a Happy Birthday and sending congratulations for each job change. In the early days of my business I thought this was vital for building a viable business (and to keep me busy and sane) but... Continue Reading

#Positivepalestinian — What It’s Like To Be A “High-Profile” Palestinian Small Business Owner Right… &Raquo;

#PositivePalestinian — What it’s like to be a “high-profile” Palestinian small business owner right now This is not really how you should wear a keffiyeh I don’t consider myself to be a high-profile Palestinian (I mean I am no Bella Hadid despite what my mum tells me about my good looks) but it has become abundantly clear that for many of my connections, I am one of the most prominent real-life Palestinians that they have ever met — that’s clearly what happens when you post so much on social media. Take this morning for example; I woke up to a text from a friend who is... Continue Reading

What I’ve Learnt From Running My Start-Up Business That Also Applies To My Dating Life &Raquo; 1 Pk I3Qw32Daz4Ry307Wka

What shall I click on next? 🤔 It’s Sunday and I’m staring at my inbox; there’s not many messages to go through but even so I can’t be bothered; my heart’s just not in it. Still, I tell myself if you don’t reply then you’ll never make any progress on your goal and this is important to you. For once, I’m not talking about my work emails and my non-stop pursuit of new business for Shiageto Consulting. Nope, the inbox I am referring to is the one on Hinge (the dating app). Hang on a minute; are you talking about your personal life? It’s true, I don’t blog much about my personal... Continue Reading

“Are you ok?”

“Are You Ok?” &Raquo;

“Are you ok?” Why it’s so hard to honestly answer that question as a Palestinian living outside Palestine right now* This book was a bedrock for my undergrad dissertation “Faris? That’s a cool name. Where is it from?” “It’s Arabic,” I respond, bracing myself for the next question. “Oh, which part of the Middle East are you from?” “I’m Palestinian” Prior to recent incidents, a typical response would then have been: “Oh, you don’t sound Palestinian.” [As if Palestinians can’t have a crisp British accent🤦🏻‍♂️]… Nowadays the standard response... Continue Reading

I Facilitate Because I Am Palestinian But Being Palestinian Has Actually Moulded Me To Be A Better… &Raquo; 1Ncu5Iy4A3Lt Daq 5P2Hwa

I facilitate because I am Palestinian but being Palestinian has actually moulded me to be a better facilitator Every chair needs an adornment I’m proud to be Palestinian. I’m proud to be a Start-up Founder. I’m proud to be an Expert Facilitator. As I explained in last week’s blog, these 3 things are not a coincidence. My desire to raise the experience, equality and inclusion for every member of a team, for every employee of a business, for every customer of a company has directly led to the foundation of my company Shiageto Consulting. The way we do this at Shiageto is by providing expert... Continue Reading

Why being Palestinian has greatly influenced my life choices and the business that I started

Why Being Palestinian Has Greatly Influenced My Life Choices And The Business That I Started &Raquo;

Mugs for every occasion In some ways it seems inevitable that my two sisters ended up in the careers that they did. One is a doctor and the other a human rights lawyer and this is no coincidence considering our heritage. What is our heritage? Our parents are Palestinian immigrants to the UK, moving here in the late 1960s displaced by the 1967 war. Finding themselves studying outside of the West Bank and Gaza when the war broke out it meant that, after Israel won the war and occupied both areas, they were not able to return there to live. Instead they moved to the UK so my dad could undertake... Continue Reading
