This is a special commercial-free edition of The LinkedIn Lady Show. We are discussing tech tips for businesses, social media habits and how they impact our lives, and a brand new project. My friend and guest, Alan Skidmore, and I are writing a new book called Choices. When was the last time you thought about the choices you have made during your lifetime and how they affected you?
Alan Skidmore is an Electrical Engineer by degree, but his professional life has been much more than just an engineer. He spent many years in the Automotive Manufacturing industry building stamping presses and assembly lines for General Motors, Saturn, and Mercedes. When the Automotive industry took a downturn, Alan became more involved in the IT and computer worlds where he helped bring high-speed internet to rural West Virginia. After facing a layoff, Alan started an IT consulting company where he continues to help small businesses get the most out of their IT equipment.
The consulting work led him to becoming the IT Director at West Virginia State University and through his leadership; WVSU has one of the best university networks in the state. Not one for staying idle, Alan has spoken in Australia, Africa, Canada, and across the country on improving technology, along with inspirational talks where he has shared the stage with many well-known speakers such as Brian Tracy and Larry Broughton. He is also the host of Prime Time Success Radio and earlier this year was co-author of Rock Star Success Stories.
After you listen to this show, maybe you have a story you would like to share about a choice you have made. Just email Carol McManus @linkedinlady through the CKC Global Media website and we’ll set up an interview!
