Crystal Thies a.k.a. The LinkedIn Ninja

She helps people turn their time spent on LinkedIn into an investment and not a waste.
Her company works with businesses, sales teams, and individuals to provide training, create custom, organic LinkedIn lead generation systems (a.k.a LinkedIn Treasure Maps), as well as implementation of concierge LinkedIn lead generation services that help clients get visible to, connected to, and opening a conversation with their perfect prospects.
