The Trump administration operates in lies which are slowly undermining American democracy. It's time for social media companies to step up and help fight back. Michael Gordon is a longtime Democratic strategist, a former spokesman for the Justice Department, and the principal for the strategic-communications firm Group Gordon. This is an opinion colu...

LinkedIn has a new stories feature — but you shouldn't treat it like Instagram

The logo of LinkedIn can be seen at the dmexco digital fair in Cologne, Germany, 13 September 2017. Rolf Vennenbernd/dpa/Getty Images LinkedIn recently announced several updates to its site, including a new tool called 'Stories.' Much like Facebook or Instagram, LinkedIn stories lets users post updates that only live on the site for about 24 hours.  Even though the tool feels more casual, you should avoid posting anything that you wouldn't want your boss to see, or oversharing about your p...

LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman and his billions are disrupting the Democratic Party

Reid Hoffman. Tony Avelar/AP Billionaire LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman is a major Democratic donor, and has become a key figure in raising money and power. But, as Vox's Theodore Schleifer reports, his approach hasn't always been popular among Democratic operatives. Hoffman's main focus seems to be on unseating Trump — but it's unclear how, or if, he will stay involved beyond 2020. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Billionaires are pouring money into both sides of the 202...

3 Branding Ideas For Heavy Industry & Manufacturing Companies

Branding is hard. But it’s especially difficult when we’re talking about business operating in “old-fashioned” industries such as the manufacturing and heavy industries. In fact, that’s likely the reason why you see many of those businesses “give up” with their own marketing and branding and focus exclusively on sales. But that doesn’t necessarily have to be the case. With a little creativity, manufacturers can also go a long way and instill their brand in their customers – and potentially gai...

Thoughts on Why I Write (And Why You Might Want to Too)

I have been thinking about writing lately. There are so many reasons why people write and so much it can give them and the community, so I thought I would share a bit here about why I write and give some suggestions on why you might want to write too. When I started writing for publication in about 2010, I wrote about issues that mattered to me professionally (You can read some of these early pieces here). This started because I found that I had things I wanted to say and talked about it when I ...

Legal Blog Has Big Impact on Connecticut Lawyer’s Career

Many of you don’t know Dan Schwartz, a Connecticut lawyer and publisher of the Connecticut Employment Law Blog. I know Dan as a friend, having first met him in Montreal thirteen years ago.

Here’s How Simple It Is To Network By Sharing Legal Blog Posts on LinkedIn

I try my best to share each of my blog posts on LinkedIn.

I don’t just share a link, I share the whole post in the space provided. If the copy won’t fit – most posts will not – I shorten the post up. Bottom line, I give LinkedIn users everything they need to get the point. It does not matter one bit if readers do not co...
