The Top Ten Best Connected Women on LinkedIn

Well, there are actually 12 super connected women among the top 150 best connected people on LinkedIn.  Are men just more open to open networking?  I am not here to answer that question right now.

I am here to promote and celebrate the best connected women on LinkedIn and to encourage you to ask them to connect with you. The super connectors are typically very helpful and willing to share resources. That is part of how they got where they are now.

  1. Stacy Donovan Zapar #15
  2. Sheree Ruland #46
  3. Jenny (Voigt) DeVaughn #64
  4. Judith Miller #69
  5. Mukta Kanojia #77
  6. Jessica Max #84
  7. Mary Leeds #85
  8. Vanessa Coussens #92
  9. Lori Ruff #138
  10. Lisa Rokusek #141

All of them (except Judith Miller) were among the first 5 million people on LinkedIn. Don’t lose heart, that doesn’t mean if you just joined you won’t get there, but you will have to work at it.

Would you like to be a super connector too? Here’s how:

  1. Visit http://www.openlinker.com
  2. Register for the annual subscription to “get on the list”
  3. Follow all instructions (including confirming your email, joining the LinkedIn TopLinked group, and checking the LinkedIn box at openlinker.com to make sure you get on the list)
  4. In your LinkedIn profile, include TopLinked.com either in your headline or as one of your custom-tagged websites
  5. Every Tuesday accept all connection requests. NEVER select “I don’t know this user.” To be an open networker, you need to openly network!

It’s that easy.  Without TopLinked.com (now found at http://www.openlinker.com) I would not be where I am today.
