This Common LinkedIn Mistake Could Be Fatal to Your Brand. Do This Instead

LinkedIn is a pretty great tool for building out your professional network. Every day, millions of people connect, find jobs, and even discover new customers. Unlike other social media platforms, LinkedIn is more focused on professional relationships, and as such, it avoids many of the pitfalls of Facebook and Twitter.

If you use LinkedIn well, it can be a fantastic resource for finding your next job or landing a new customer. The problem is, many people aren’t using it well. Quite to the contrary, many people use LinkedIn in a way that probably hurts them more than they think.

Werner Herzog: Elon Musk’s Mars city is a ‘mistake’ and an ‘obscenity’

Elon Musk is on a mission to make humans a multi-planetary species by building an independent city on Mars.

The billionaire tech mogul has said that the Starship spacecraft designed by his rocket company, SpaceX, could launch on its first flight to Mars as early as 2024. Eventually, he hopes that the rocket will shuttle people to the red planet en masse. His goal is to build a city of 1 million Martians by 2050.

Legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog thinks that would be “a mistake.”

“I think Elon Musk stylizes himself as some sort of a technological visionary,” Herzog told Inverse. “Because he has to sell his electric cars. Wonderful that he does that. He has to sell his reusable rockets. Wonderful that he’s doing it.”

But, he added, “I disagree with him when he postulates and preaches about colonizing Mars.”

S&P 500 Weekly Update: Obsessing Over The Election Turned Out To Be A Mistake

“Information is not knowledge.” – Albert Einstein

Last week it was all about “the calm before the storm”. Instead of more anxiety, the storm turned out to be a whirlwind for the Bulls.

It’s finally over. Yes although we don’t have a declared “winner” three days after an election, it’s over. All of the different political scenarios, all of the forecasts of what sectors/stocks are going to do well under Biden or Trump. Whether there is a Blue Wave or there is a gridlock setup in congress. I for one now will have fewer distractions, take time to regroup, and more than likely go back to playing the cards that are dealt.

No matter who sits in the White House next year it is ‘likely” investors in the stock market will be laboring with the backdrop of a divided government, or as one analyst mentioned, a “frozen government”. The stock
