LinkedIn.com and Tea

Attn: LinkedIn.com users and future users

There is now a group you can join that is specifically for the tea community. I established the Tea Enthusiasts and Entrepreneurs group because there was, to my knowledge, no other group for tea on the network.

A link to the group:
http://www.linkedin.com/e/gis/119475/05B771324E3A

If you are not familiar with LinkedIn.com, it is a professional networking site allowing you to connect with current and past co-workers, as well as other associates, etc. It also allows for recommendations and much more.

I have nothing to gain by talking about LinkedIn.com. However, I am a strong proponet of networking, etc. I have been using the site for a few years now.

Several have already joined from the 2008 New Business Boot Camp and the World Tea Expo...

Look forward to seeing you there!

Thank you.

We are now at 1,232 members in the T.E.E. group on Linked In dot com. Linked In has added the ability to both post topics for discussion as well as news articles, etc.

Check it out if you have not.

I have just recently learned about linkedin and plan to join. But something I don't yet understand is, should I be concerned if my employer knows I have other professional interests?

It's all relative...

Ginko,

I think that would depend on the individual employer. Mine doesn't seem to care that I am looking to start a tea business.
