Join My Network on LinkedIn!

I love getting these invitations to connect with folks on LinkedIn. Apparently, when I chose to name my company “Paradigm Consulting Co.” it was not the most original name I could have chosen. (I knew that, but hey, it was the mid-90’s and “paradigm” was a popular buzzword.)
Here’s the message I got:Join my network on LinkedIn

Donna *********** has indicated you are a Colleague at Paradigm Consulting:

Since you are a person I trust, I wanted to invite you to join my network on LinkedIn.

Now that is really touching. I am a person tha Donna (real name witheld to protect the clueless) trusts. Especially when you consider I have absolutely no idea who this person is. The trust I inspire in complete and utter strangers is really flattering.
