Google Me!!

When you try to make connection with a new partner, apply for new funding, or propose business to a new client, what is the first thing they will do?

Several years ago I tried 'googling myself' and the Google search engine had an epileptic fit trying to find me and after it finally found me it's result was 'Did you mean?...suggesting someone else. Can you imagine the look on my face!!!This Google doesn't have respect!!

Right there I knew there was a problem. How can you be a connector when you are not connected? Don't you know the world is too globally connected for you to be in isolation?

I got to work. I changed my title from Nigerian Strategist to Africa Strategist and the scope of requests, contact and work grew to other African countries. When I changed my name, I changed the game. Abram became Abraham!!

I have not said you should profile your favourite meal or designer shoes but if that is what you want, that is ok but you can separate your personal from your professional profile. The question is what are you known for or want to be known for???

Recently, I tried googling my name again and before I finished typing my first name, Google completed my surname. Okay, this Google now has respect!

Book me to speak at your events!! Happy new month my people. Follow me on LinkedIn @Dr Akanimo Odon
