The power of a microphone

What’s the most-prized profile photo on Linked In? Yep, the one with the microphone.

Why is that?

A photo or video of yourself striding the stage, microphone in hand (or better yet, with a performer’s wearable set) sends a powerful message.

And boy-oh-boy, that sure feeds the ego! Look at all those fawning acolytes, just hanging on your every word. Heck, you’re the Tony Robbins, the Taylor Swift, of your industry, and customers must surely flock to your door.

Or you could take Epictetus’ view: We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.

Are you listening?
