1p Josh Cary Session: You + Google = BFF.
Think about your own BFF for a moment. What is it you truly value about that relationship? There’s comfort, history, and understanding between you two. There’s a level of trust, common interest, and unconditional love and support. There’s mutual respect, admiration, and appreciation. It probably took some time and evaluation on both of your parts to find yourself relying on each other as BFFs. Google is no different. In fact, Google wants nothing more to be your BFF. Discover how to apply the same ‘rules’ from your personal friendships into a lifelong friendship with Google! (It’s easier than you think.)
