Share your Linkedin journey?

My LinkedIn story begins with a post that I see from one of my senior who attended a small workshop which helped her to realign her LinkedIn strategies. She knew that I am the one who need that and referred me to the Killing it on LinkedIn program which turned my profile in LinkedIn to reflect who I am. I jumped from 200+ connections to a whooping 1 k in 3 months and was able to showcase my talent and career objectives clearly to a very large audience.
