Successful Business People Do Not Get Depressed – Right? Check This Out – I Was Floored…


My Depression Post From Last Week

I have to admit some of the stuff we discuss here is personal and I honor that  by not sharing any comments outside of this blog. However when I write a post on say Mental Health, Addiction, or the like I always in the back of my mind wonder how the people on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter view my stories and trials. They aren’t going through it like most of us here have or are – right?

Wrong. I was so amazed when I checked how many people viewed this post on Depression just on LinkedIn I was speechless. Mainly because like many I get lulled to sleep by success of others and assume they have zero struggles. How wrong I was. The average views on a post I share from here to LinkedIn ranges from 20-40 about.

This post on depression – in three days was viewed 366 times – wait – it gets more interesting. LinkedIn gives you some demographic data on who reads your stuff like WordPress does. So I took a peek. I am not copying and printing the list as it would be a violation but I can share that of those 366 views – 50% were read by CEO or C – Level Executives.  Most of the rest were in some way related to the Mental Health industry.

I’ll just leave it there but you know LinkedIn is BUSINESS BUSINESS BUSINESS and many multi-millionaires stay on there daily looking for new ventures. Why in the world would over 150 Executives stop their business development to read a post on Depression?

I don’t know – you tell me?
