MY BACKSTORY: “Google Me!”

Updated: Dec 27, 2023

Google  Me


Here is my ‘BackStory’ of how I came to use, and suggest using, the phrase: “Google Me!

Picture this: You’ve sent out resumes, or, if in business for yourself, proposals for projects. You’re making follow-up calls and typically, you’re going to hear something like this:

“I received your resume / proposal and it looks good! I also looked at your personal website. (Everyone should have a personal/professional website.) Wow, you have a lot of good articles, podcasts and videos. It’s impressive. However, I want to know more about you and what you do.”

If you’ve been consistently building your Three Legged EXPERT Stool: Blogging, speaking, and promoting those activities, you can say, “If I were you, I’d feel the same way. Do this, please: “Google Me!”

Don’t you love that verbiage? I do! What you’re saying is, “Don’t just take my word for how good I am. Check me out!  –  Google Me!”

Here’s the BACKSTORY of that phrase.

My wife was an elementary teacher. She taught fourth and fifth grade and then gifted classes.

Marcus was an inner-city student attending her suburban school. He came from a tough neighborhood. His father was in and out of prison and his mother held a number of menial jobs. Despite those drawbacks, Marcus was determined to be successful. He was an excellent student and better than average athlete. He also possessed a sparking personality and a smile that drew everyone in.

As he changed grades, schools, and cities, he kept in touch with my wife.

One day our phone rang and it was Marcus. We put it on speakerphone and my wife said, “Marcus! It’s great to hear from you. How are you doing?”

There was a moment of silence and Marcus replied, “Mrs. Miller. Google Me!”

I had my laptop on the table and put Marcus’s name into the search bar. Immediately, lots of pages about Marcus filled the page. They were about him being a scholar, an athlete, and a number of colleges recruiting him!

WOW! It was heartwarming and thrilling it was for us to see this.

Marcus got a full ride scholarship. Now he is coaching high school football. I have no doubt bigger things are in store for him.


Build your Three Legged EXPERT Stool, so if someone asks how to find out more about you, your response, with an attitude, a good attitude and can be, Google Me!”
