Ellen Watkins: 3 Life Changing Results from Writing for the OI Blog

Ellen Watkins: 3 Life Changing Results from Writing for the OI Blog

The simple email announcement came across my desk. All kinds of thoughts raced through my head and I considered all aspects of it in a matter of seconds. Do it! Don’t do it. Ack! Reach out and try.

LiveIntentional Weekly: Why Microsoft Thinks LinkedIn is Worth
$26.3B

In a story we’re breaking just now, Microsoft has acquired B2B social platform LinkedIn for the mind-numbing sum of $26.2 billion dollars.

Just to put that in perspective, with 26.2 billion dollars, you could buy the Chicago Cubs…. 26 times. That’s about 2.7 trillion years of losing.
