“Global Sales & Marketing Leadership Association”


Believe me it’s never been in my DNA to say “The Heck With It I’ll Start My Own Group”!!!!…..but somehow I overcame my shyness . I’m not sure how much you are experienced or familiar with LinkedIn but I peruse the website often as it serves my needs from a business perspective. You can say it’s my “Facebook” however for business purposes. There are many business groups located on LinkedIn some of which I belong to, and one of the things that frustrates me about some of these groups is that many of them don’t allow for “diversity” type thinking. The owners of some of these groups pick and choose WHO they want to participate in discussions and often kick out those they feel don’t toe the line of their thinking… you can imagine this angers me to no end. So, unlike my personality and something I’ve had to personally develop over some time I decided to start my own group that focuses on sales & marketing issues that affect all of us from a global perspective. I have been not only surprised but SHOCKED at the pace of which this group has grown over a short period of time…..a true testament of “when you get frustrated about how something is done and/or run start your own initiative (an entrepreneur anthem!). I’m so excited about this I had to blog it because it’s a big moral step for me even though it appears to be small pennies….psychologically this is huge for me!
