Hello Haoma, how are you feeling at this time?

Good day. I’m feeling just like the Queen that I’m.

⁠That’s nice. Give us a peep into what began who you might be at this time

I had a life-changing expertise throughout my first 12 months at college that has formed who I’m at this time. It occurred on a day after I was sitting in my mother and father’ entrance yard in Port Harcourt, holding a e-book in my arms. I felt like I used to be in a trance or imaginative and prescient, experiencing one thing past the extraordinary. On this expertise, I noticed a big constructing that appeared like a warehouse and many individuals popping out of it, all of them smiling and excited. Every particular person had one thing of their arms that they have been desperate to share with others. They walked out in teams and pairs, exhibiting one another what they’d of their arms with smiles on their faces.

This expertise made me realise that I had a duty to assist folks discover fulfilment and happiness by productive actions, reminiscent of careers and enterprise. Despite the fact that I didn’t totally perceive what it meant on the time, I began taking small steps in the direction of this aim. Once I was 18 years previous, I based a non-governmental organisation and social enterprise known as Envisage, which centered on philanthropy and career-related actions for younger folks.

I realized that typically, God reveals to us what he has known as us to do, however we don’t all the time see the entire image. We shouldn’t look ahead to full understanding earlier than taking motion. As a substitute, we should always begin by taking small steps primarily based on the directions we’ve acquired, and as we obey, we’ll see our objective develop into clearer. By following this method, we will develop into a surprise to many.

How did you give you the title “LinkedIn Queen”?

I consider we’re kings and clergymen. LinkedIn is at present my major place of affect and platform for enterprise, in order somebody who is aware of she is each a king and a priest, I made a decision to make the identify public and loud by calling myself LinkedIn Queen. It was after I began calling myself “LinkedIn Queen” that the world began calling me LinkedIn. Individuals will name you what you name your self. Don’t depart it open for them to name you something they really feel like as a result of an id disaster would possibly are available in.

LinkedIn is just not lots of people’s go-to social app. Why did you determine that might be your content-sharing and audience-engagement platform?

Nicely, at first, LinkedIn appeared like a secure house for me to drop any content material I appreciated. Earlier than, I had solely 24 connections there for a very long time, who have been my shut family and friends. So, there was no viewers to evaluate something I needed to say. I used to be comfy placing out content material persistently on LinkedIn. I’d often have little or no engagements at the moment, however what I didn’t know was that individuals have been watching. The truth that they didn’t like or remark didn’t imply that they didn’t see. Anyway, I continued exhibiting up, and over time, that constant act of exhibiting up registered my model within the minds of individuals as they stored seeing me every so often. I used to be unknowingly constructing a neighborhood. Right here we’re. I additionally know God accelerated my progress as a result of he needed to make use of me to succeed in these in my profession and enterprise. Seeing that LinkedIn is seen as that platform for these in profession/enterprise, he knew I needed to be seen there.

⁠What impressed you to begin utilizing LinkedIn as a platform to empower folks and assist them achieve visibility and monetise their platform? Versus merely utilizing it to advertise your self and your work

I found that lots of people had a false impression about LinkedIn. Once I noticed what the platform had carried out for me and some different folks, I made a decision to debunk the myths folks have about it and do my finest to make sure everybody who is available in contact with me will get their share of the gold from LinkedIn. Humorous sufficient, many of the huge alternatives, large progress, and outcomes I’ve gotten on LinkedIn got here after I shifted the main target from myself and determined to domesticate a LinkedIn presence that didn’t solely showcase excellence at what I do or who I’m as an individual however one which solely cared about my target market and confirmed up daily to proffer an answer to their issues.

⁠You reference God quite a bit. Are you able to share a particular occasion the place your perception in God has guided you in making career-related selections?

There was a time after I acquired steering from God that helped me in my profession and enterprise. One morning, I used to be in mattress and had simply posted on LinkedIn in regards to the significance of exhibiting up on the platform after I heard a message from the Holy Spirit. He recommended that I shouldn’t solely inform folks why they should present up on LinkedIn but in addition present them find out how to do it.

I adopted His recommendation and opened LinkedIn once more, saying a 20-day LinkedIn problem the place I’d assist folks present up on the platform. Throughout the first few days, over 1000 folks joined the problem, and it will definitely grew to become a world program that impacted over 4000 folks in 28 international locations. I firmly consider that God generally is a nice enterprise coach and guide if we’re open to listening to His steering. So, I encourage everybody within the enterprise to see God as a pal, father, lover, and healer, in addition to a profession coach and enterprise guide.

⁠In your expertise, what are the widespread errors professionals make on LinkedIn that hinder their success, and the way can they keep away from them?

Being pressured, jealous, or intimidated on LinkedIn. Not giving LinkedIn time and anticipating LinkedIn to miraculously pay them. Focusing a lot on solely profile optimisation however forgetting presence optimisation. Your LinkedIn engagements ought to transcend simply having a profile; profile that nobody will get to see is pretty much as good as ineffective. Being egocentric on LinkedIn and solely speaking about themselves and their bulletins as a substitute of exhibiting as much as both educate, entertain, encourage, or encourage their viewers (whichever works for his or her model). That is what’s going to maintain your target market persistently interested in you and wanting to have interaction with you, your product, or your service. Hating LinkedIn and anticipating LinkedIn to like them. (laughs in seriousness). Copying others and desirous to be like the group.

Let’s discuss on a regular basis residing, Haoma. Stroll us by a typical day in your life

I get up and spend a while with the Holy Spirit, my finest pal; create my to-do checklist for the day utilizing Google Hold; and then get to do the issues on my checklist, which often begin with one thing LinkedIn-related.

The financial system is at present not smiling, what methods do you make sure you maintain your vibrant spirit and stay optimistic?

Sorry, however I function in an financial system past the one seen with the pure eye. I’m an envoy despatched on a mission on earth.  So my house nation takes care of me. I can’t and can by no means relate to any financial system that’s not smiling, haha.

Haha, huge flex!

It’s God.⁠

What’s that unconventional thought you might have in regards to the world?

The God-grade man/lady would be the eighth surprise of the world.

One second you felt actually pleased with your self?

That needs to be after I helped a person and a lady of their 60s present up on Linkedin to start a brand new part of their careers and enterprise at that age. Within the precise phrases of the lady “I haven’t woken as much as the realisation of this dream, that sooner or later will come, when I’ll boldly inform my very own story on my own to the world on LinkedIn.” The person mentioned, “What Haoma does is a ministry. Haoma’s progress and visibility program started my changing into intentional on LinkedIn.” Listening to these gave me a way of fulfilment I had by no means felt earlier than.
