Did you know that the About Page of your website (if you have one) is one of the most visited pages? But what do people want to see there? Information about how you can help them of course. However, they won’t care too much until they have created some sort of emotional connection with you.
So how do you get them to care? By showing your human side a little bit. By sharing what inspires your vision and some of the people and experiences that have shaped who you are today.
So here are 10 (hopefully) interesting things about me which you probably never knew. Or did you?
#1. I’m originally from Enugu State in Eastern Nigeria.
It’s a beautiful city famous for its coal, stunning hills, reddish earth and for being the official capital of Eastern Nigeria albeit fleetingly. Easily one of my favourite places in the world. Think Spanish surburbia with much spicier food and weather.
#2. I have been writing since I was 4 – have worked as a freelance newspaper columnist and as a marketing executive for a multi-national company. I am passionate about sharing knowledge through teaching, training and consulting.
#3. One weakness is wanting to help people create transformation – sometimes much more than they want that change for themselves. I am working on it.

#4. I enjoy singing and can write songs. Also enjoy cooking minus the washing up.
#5. My favourite colour is purple. All shades of it work in my book.
#6. I am nearly six feet tall.
#7. I have travelled or lived in 3 of the world’s continents. Travel is a great way to learn if one has an open mind and respect for other people’s culture.
I have now lived in England for over 16 years and spend my time in leafy Northamptonshire, my beloved hometown in West Africa and other favorite working-vacation spots.
#8. I’m a teetotaller.
#9. Sometimes I wish that I could speak more languages and play at least one musical instrument. Sometimes.
#10. I am an introvert – although ironically a natural public speaker, not shy and super-feisty when I find a good cause!
I believe in God, following my intuition and making a positive impact through education. Sub plots for another day?
So, there you have it: 10 interesting things about me which you probably never knew. Or did you? I hope this inspires you to share with me and others too.
