How’s pandemic been for you - what’s yours last 12 month story?

My business was seriously affected and I too had to deal with isolation. However, this actually gave me room to think and reflect back about my life. I then went on a self discovery journey to understand myself and what was actually stoping me from pursuing my real passion all these years.Learning about myself, facing my fears and battling my self limiting believes has been one of the best things I did. In January 2021, I decided to go all in as a full time time Artist and let go of everything else. It has been really amazing!

I never used LinkedIn but I’ve heard before that it’s a good platform to build network. I got really interested after listening to Khusboo’s sharing about her LinkedIn journey and decided to try using the platform.

Share your Linkedin journey?

I had an empty LinkedIn profile for years. I took up the Killing It On LinkedIn workshop in February 2021, updated my profile, created my banner and made connections with industry people whom I didn’t know, all in one week. I also put up my first post on 12/2/2021 - a video introduction I made about finally pursuing my career as an Artist. The video received 200+ views and had one reshare. I have been continuously fine tuning my profile and posting regularly. To date I have made sales, gotten speaking engagements and increased my connections on LinkedIn.
