Going With a Personal Website

January 12, 2017



[Blog Post #12 of 21]


I recently created a personal website with my name as the URL.


The decision to start branding myself as me, RichHopen.com, wasn’t easy.


I sought advice from a number of business colleagues whom I respect. Their opinions differed. 


Most told me to brand it as something related to New Jersey real estate. Others said to use my name.


And then I realized something that made the decision obvious.


Over my 30-year professional career I’ve worked in many different industries and have owned a dozen businesses.


I have built relationships that have come and  gone.


If I had a personal website years ago, perhaps I could have stayed connected to some of the friends I made as a  lawyer, commercial real estate broker, personal finance educator, and college professor.


I didn’t have a personal website and I lost contact.


I'm hopeful it will be different this time.
