Do you remember when you first joined LinkedIn? If it was near the start, there were a bunch of people who invited you to be on the platform. The person who invited me was influential and someone I respected, so I started to fill in the form. I didn't write too much and didn't think too much about it afterwards.

No business in the world has smooth sailing every day. It may look like some do, but they don't - I can assure you of that.

I am in a privileged position these days, as I work 'on' the business and not 'in' the business.
