Modelry - A Random Walk through Internet Real Estate: The Start-Up of You Presentation Online

The Start-Up of You Presentation Online

In early 2012, I wrote a blog post about LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman's new book The Start-Up of You.  To celebrate the one year anniversary of the book, Reid Hoffman has published a 190 slide presentation on SlideShare (acquired by LinkedIn) discussing the core lessons of his book.  

See presentation embedded below.

I particularly like the section on networking.  Key lessons:

  1. Strengthen relationships with your key allies.
  2. Your network is bigger and stronger than you think
  3. If you are not making or asking for introductions or referrals, you are not leveraging your network.
  4. If you are not making your network stronger, your network is getting weaker.
  5. Create an interesting people fund to strengthen relationships or build new ones
Also great use of a visual presentation or a slideshow to drive traffic via social media.

It is an excellent presentation but it is so darn long, that I doubt there are many people who would go to the end of it.
