Show Notes

My guest today is a LinkedIn Top Voice based in Sydney, Australia. Karen Tisdell started her career in advertising writing ad copy, then worked as a corporate trainer and then recruiter, and finally started writing LinkedIn profiles professionally in 2009.
Foreseeing the importance of how business leaders are perceived online. From being an early adopter of LinkedIn, to being recognized as one of the top 8 independent LinkedIn trainers across Asia Pacific.

How did Karen navigate all these twists and turns, let’s find out! In this episode we talk about:

 - Karen’s dream career as a child and how it surprisingly ties with what she’s doing today

- Two very unusual and unforgettable ways in which Karen got hired at amazing jobs in London and Perth

- How Karen started her accidental entrepreneurship journey and a beautiful  piece of advice she received from a client

- A few of Karen’s favourite tips and strategies to create a stand out LinkedIn profile

- A phenomenon called the Tall Poppy Syndrome that’s apparently prevalent in Australia and how Karen deals with it

- The correlation between a running a business and a successful marriage and how after a lot of work she’s (literally) married the two! 

Whether you’re a job seeker, happily employed or a business owner, you really don’t want to miss this conversation!
