SHIELD Weekly Highlights #3

Hello Shielders👋

Friday is here, and the weekend is just around the corner. Therefore, we are coming to you straight from the SHIELD headquarters in central Copenhagen, with this week’s edition of SHIELD Weekly Highlights.

But this week, we decided to add a little spin on the top 3.

SHIELD is on a constant journey, and we appreciate every single user joining us along the way!

Therefore, this week’s top 3 is going to feature NEW SHIELD users exclusively, meaning users that have joined SHIELD over the last 2 months.

So without further ado, let’s get into right this week’s special edition of SHIELD Weekly Highlights!


This Week’s Key Takeaways 🎯

👉 Inspiration seldom strikes when you seek it out actively!

👉 Inspiration often comes from paying attention and reflecting upon everyday actions and interactions.

👉 Saying no is hard, but it is essential to living the life that YOU want!

👉 Every time you say no, you gain time and energy to do things that are important to you!

👉 Using the right hashtags on LinkedIn will help you reach a much wider audience, way outside your first-degree connections!


Andy DeAngelis

We start this week’s top 3 with Andy DeAngelis and his article: Inspiration is Omnipresent.

In this very inspirational article (yes, pun intended), Andy breaks down his own perspective on the concept of inspiration.

Andy argues, that inspiration as a concept is very hard to successfully define. It is also seldom found when actively looked for.  

Instead, Andy urges us to look for inspiration within our everyday actions and interactions, simply by paying attention and reflecting.

Andy ends his article by arguing, that if you simply think about what inspires you, the process of inspiration has already started.  

We highly encourage you to give Andy’s article a read and a like!


Joanna Schneider

The second person on this week’s top 3 is Joanna Schneider, with her post about the importance of saying no.

Should you desire to read the post on Linkedin, it is available here: Joanna Schneider – Why you need to get better at saying no…

In this very innovative post, Joanna looks at the concept of saying no in order to prioritize your life for yourself.

Joanna argues that saying no to things is hard, but it is essential to living the life that YOU want. She also argues that the inability to say no is one of the biggest risk factors for burnout.

She illustrates her point by listing yes’s and no’s in her everyday life and routines.

Lastly, Joanna leaves us with a very valuable point – Every time you say no, you gain time and energy to do things that are important to you.

Please make sure to read and like Joanna’s post!


Donna Serdula

Taking the last spot on this week’s top 3 is Donna Serdula and her guide to hashtags on LinkedIn.

Should you desire to view the post on LinkedIn, it is available here: Donna Serdula – Are you confused by hashtags? You aren’t alone.

In this super informative video, Donna shares her wisdom on the subject of hashtags.

Donna gives us a very easy and highly descriptive guide to the dos and don’ts of hashtags on LinkedIn.

Donna argues that using the right hashtags in your LinkedIn posts will ultimately help you reach a much wider audience. Donna also illustrates that using the hashtags efficiently will even help you reach people way outside of your first-degree connections.
