I was going through my LinkedIn connections a couple of weeks ago and it dawned on me that I have few–if any–“famous” connections. Don’t get me wrong: many are leaders in their community and in their industries, but they’re not household names. Depending on your work, you may know of Jay Baer–I’ve written a couple guest posts for his blog, Convince & Convert–or Chris Brogan–whom I honestly don’t know all that well–but that about as close as I get to being connected with a celebrity.
How about you? Are you connected to anyone you think is especially well known or influential? Name drop in the comments, along with a note about how you know that person. Consider it your one chance for a little refracted glory.
