grabs the reader

“I love the very first sentence of my LinkedIn profile summary. It just really grabs the reader. There are some really powerful ideas and language in there. I’ve been so anti-LinkedIn, and I appreciate you taking into account my desire for privacy. You clearly put a lot of thought into it. ​I’d had a bunch of questions, but you’ve addressed all of them. And you’ve really clarified my thinking. Your instructions for inputting the profile were straight-forward​ and your LinkedIn book was very helpful. Thank you for dragging me into the 21st century!”
