"You’ll notice lots of casualties here. We didn’t know it at the time, but nobody would succeed in closing the last-mile gap between Google and the universe of small business; to this day, it’s an unsolved problem." from "Chaos Monkeys: Obscene Fortune and Random Failure in Silicon Valley" by Antonio Garcia Martinez

"As I observed more than once at Facebook, and as I imagine is the case in all organizations from business to government, high-level decisions that affected thousands of people and billions in revenue would be made on gut feel, the residue of whatever historical politics were in play, and the ability to cater persuasive messages to people either busy, impatient, or uninterested (or all three)." from "Chaos Monkeys: Obscene Fortune and Random Failure in Silicon Valley" by Antonio Garcia Martinez

"No choice recurs. We may get similar choices again, but never that exact one. Hesitation—inaction—is just as irrevocable as action. What the motorist, locked on the one-way road, is to space, we are to the fourth dimension: we truly pass this way but once." from "Algorithms To Live By: The Computer Science of Human Decisions" by Brian Christian, Tom Griffiths

"But the human tongue is a beast that few can master. It strains constantly to break out of its cage, and if it is not tamed, it will run wild and cause you grief. Power cannot accrue to those who squander their treasure of words." from "The 48 Laws of Power" by Robert Greene, Joost Elffers

"Since Google makes most of its money elsewhere, and in any case doesn’t have the patience or internal culture to create tools for small advertisers, the tools it does offer are dauntingly complex and ineffectual." from "Chaos Monkeys: Obscene Fortune and Random Failure in Silicon Valley" by Antonio Garcia Martinez

"Riddle traveled a lot in his twenties and recalls being hit by a realization. So much of people’s lives—their opportunities, their health and longevity—comes down to where they were born. “It’s so random,” he says." from "Grunt: The Curious Science of Humans at War" by Mary Roach

Hi! My name is Sakis Rizos. I am an AdWords Specialist holding the:

  • Google Advertising Fundamentals Exam qualification

  • Google Analytics Individual Qualification

I am also the only Google AdWords Top Contributor 2010, and 2011, in Greece.

My last job was Head of Paid Search Marketing at Mindworks, a Greek SEM Agency (AdWords Qualified Company). Mindworks is a Business Unit of Atcom. I worked for Mindworks from November 2007 till April 2010 when I resigned.

On June 2010 I founded my own company, www.sakisrizos.gr which is an agency specializing in Google AdWords advertising. AdWords-Solutions is certified by Google as a "Google AdWords Certified Partner".

I love reading business books and magazines, riding my motorcycle, listening to Hard Rock music, and going to the gym ( at least I'm trying to :-) ).
