Show Info


You can now find The LinkedIn Lady Show on All Business Radio Network - the newest of the Toginet family of prime Internet radio networks.  

All the same great programming with featured guests sharing their expertise and my Wednesday co-host Ken Herron.

The LinkedIn Lady with Carol McManus is a live, one-hour program broadcast on the Internet. It's entertaining, informative, current, and fun!

Hosted by the talented and resourceful Carol McManus, America's LinkedIn Lady and the Founder and CEO of Ywait4success (pronounced ‘why wait for success'), a highly successful coaching, consulting and training organization.

Carol is a self-described recovering corporate executive who left that world in 2007 to start her own business. She grew it quickly with a very limited marketing budget but through the creative and diligent use of social media. Today, she is one of the most sought-after speakers and consultants for businesses and entrepreneurs who aspire to grow their business by using this digital medium as a way to stay in touch with and attract new clients.

Carol's approach to social media is grounded in her business experience. She works with clients to determine their business goals, their marketing message, and their ideal target audience. Then and only then, does she recommend the guide in the development, implementation and management of their social media plan to support their business goals.

During the shows, Carol will be interviewing other experts in the field of social networking and social media as well as business owners and leaders who are, today, using it themselves to grow their personal brand and grow their bottom line.

She is the creator of the LinkedIn System for Success, a home study course for anyone wanting to improve his or her online biography using LinkedIn. "This is the professional social networking site and a must-do for your personal presence online if you want to be taken seriously by potential employees, employers, consultants, clients, vendors, partners, investors, and more."

While speaking and coaching to audiences all over the country on the do's and don'ts of social networking, Carol continues to grow Ywait4success. Her executive coaching and consulting business focuses on businesses primarily in the service sector whose needs include strategic planning, leadership development, financial metrics for managing higher productivity, marketing, recruiting, and sales training. She and her team of experts create customized options for business owners and legacy leaders to grow profitably and develop the talents of their entire organization.

Carol's background in the real estate industry covered more than three decades. The majority of that time was spent in brokerage management, field operations, sales and management training, and ultimately as Senior Vice President of Real Estate Operations for Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corporation, wholly owned subsidiary of Realogy (parent company to Century-21, ERA, Sotheby's International, Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate, Cartus Relocation, TRG, and NRT). Her transfers took her from Washington, D.C. to Connecticut, to California to Georgia, to New Jersey. Rarely in the service business will you find someone whose experience covers such a broad range of responsibilities and geography. She has seen business from every side - as an owner, as a franchisee, as a franchisor, and from the corporate seat.

Carol is the author of Ten Traits for Top Performers, a book written exclusively for the 125,000 sales associates and brokers in the Realogy system. Her research and wisdom is used every day to help broker-owners, managers, and sales associates improve on their skills to stand out from the competition.

Entrepreneurs + Innovation + Community = Success

Today’s LinkedIn Lady Show is all about bringing budding entrepreneurs with great ideas together into a community where they can learn from each other and thrive rather than sit home looking at a computer screen hoping for results.

He will be sharing the vision and practical outcomes that the Stamford Innovation Center are enjoying as well as insights on how this could be a model for other cities and jurisdictions to engage their fledgling entrepreneurs.

What Do Al Roker and LinkedIn Have in Common?

Turns out – absolutely nothing!  That’s because Al Roker doesn’t get LinkedIn and on the Today Show this morning, he made that absolutely clear.  Even though I’m a huge fan of Al (as well as Willy Geist and Savannah Guthrie who shared in this on-air discussion) I must say there is a need for some major reeducation.  My Wednesday co-host, Ken Herron, and I will be discussing this and so much more on today’s LinkedIn Lady Show. 

For example, do you know the absolute WORST gift you can give kids for Christmas?  It has to do with something that one company is offering in the area of social media and it is truly awful.  

But there is some good news to share.  Twitter’s new mobile App allows you to send photos using Direct Messaging (DM).  What can we learn from Disney about training our customers to ‘check-in’ to your business on Facebook and Foursquare?  And how your competitors can (and should) be your best weapons when it comes to improving your social footprint.  Finally we’ll talk about the times TO and the times to NOT use automation in managing your social media accounts. 

Don’t miss this show today at 4 pm on Join us in Live Chat or call us on 866-404-6519.  Follow show highlights on Twitter using the hashtag #lilshow.
