My name is Ralph. Where I come from, a Friday-born male is automatically Kofi so feel free to call me Kofi if that feels better on your tongue.
Okay, enough of the name gymnastics. This is supposed to be a CONTACT PAGE. So let me show you briefly why you need to read my articles, take a look at my services and products (as and when they become available) and go on to contact me.
From personal experience, I’ve come to develop the unshakable belief that it will forever be possible for any individual or group to achieve a great deal even without much external support.
Therefore, I love to gather and share knowledge that can transform the lives of people who are not able to benefit from adequate outside help.
As you can see, I’m consumed by this burning desire to help others to use any life-changing information to enable them to make meaningful progress in their individual lives.
And hey, I love the challenge most if you’re starting from ground zero – I mean right from rock bottom with all the odds stacked up against you. Just like me.
Here comes a little bit of that:
Without any high school education nor any assistance from any private tutor (due to the well-known financial obstacles), I managed to bag a Division One with Distinction School Certificate as a private candidate in the GCE ‘O’ Level/SC Examination.
I went on to chalk a similar feat in the GCE ‘A’ Level Examination as well under the same circumstances. So, I gained admission to the university against all odds. I excelled there too.
Evidence? I am a recipient of The Dean’s Award for Academic Excellence from my alma mater, the University of Cape Coast, Ghana.
FYI. Before all these, I passed with another Distinction at the Middle School level.
And you know something? I’ve been in self-employment since I left university almost two decades ago. That’s not an ordinary feat in my part of the world, okay?
For the past sixteen years (besides many other activities) I’ve successfully guided, mentored and coached over two thousand adult learners for various examinations such as the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), University Entrance Examination for Mature Candidates as well as undergraduate and diploma level examinations.
I know, I know. It sounds like I’m blowing my own horn, right? Well, that has never been my intention because I don’t need to.
And to tell you the truth, I’m not the typical smart guy or the regular nerd. I detest cheating and dishonest living of any kind too. My very first blog post will tell you that.
I compare myself more to the talented soccer coach who knows how to produce the goals and win the game without necessarily playing a spectacularly beautiful game.
And I have this natural obsession with creating something out of nothing.
Personally, I hate being the center of attention so you can guess how difficult it was for me to take this decision to share part of my modest personal successes with you. It’s not been an easy decision. It’s just that this approach happens to be one of the key requirements for being a successful online entrepreneur.
Here’s another important thing you need to know about me. I’ve failed at a number of ventures since I became a solopreneur. I’ve struggled. I’ve had to contend with daunting personal and career challenges. Many times, I’ve sweated and toiled without realizing the dream.
In fact, I came close to giving up on several occasions when I felt extremely lonely without any help from any one of the sources you can think of.
But somehow, I’ve managed to keep going. I’m proud to say I’ve achieved a lot judging by my origins and going by the standards of my immediate environment.
Now you may ask why am I saying all these?
I’ve done this for two main reasons:
- to assist you to decide whether to trust whatever I will tell you regarding the power of self-help as a tool for achieving your personal goals.
- to motivate you in case you find yourself in a situation similar to mine.
I’m here to give you all the information I can give to make you move from ground zero (or wherever you may be in your life at this moment) to the next level.
So I’m right to say I am an infopreneur!
Then my problem pops up: where and how do I focus as an infopreneur?
I tell myself I’m focusing on self-help for personal improvement but that includes a lot, doesn’t it?
Well, I’m on it. With the help of awesome people like you, I intend to keep my focus on the many branches of my single passion and continue adjusting, adapting, tweaking as I learn more about my chosen field – INFOPRENEURSHIP.
As you can see, I do not have all the answers to all the questions after all. It’s a humbling feeling to know this. Kindly let me know your thoughts. Maybe you can help me focus better or simply tell me I’m doing just fine and should keep going.
Till then, come learn with me. Come let’s grow together. You’re warmly welcome to The Self-Support Guide, TSSG, your authoritative knowledge bank for self-help ideas and tips geared toward one goal only – your personal improvement.
