Let’s Get Social – featuring Alyson Lex
Welcome back for another week of Let's Get Social, where I feature a different entrepreneur every Sunday!
This week I am featuring Alyson Lex. Don't forget – if you or someone you know can help out the featured entrepreneur with their area of need (see question #4), be sure to leave a comment! Also, if you would like to be the next entrepreneur featured, learn how at the end of this post. Enjoy!
Q&A Time – featuring Alyson:
If you were a superhero, what would your super power be?
I have the incredible (and WEIRD!) ability to instantly identify any sound in the house, no matter how random. For instance: I have suction cup hooks in my shower to hold my loofah and other various hook-needing shower things. One popped off and clunked into the tub, and I instantly knew what it was. Weird, right?!
What song do you crank up when you need a boost, or are celebrating a business victory?
My Pandora is ON POINT – after all, I've spent about 9 years curating my best station on there! (Yes, I'm a Pandora addict!). I have a couple favorite songs that span a bunch of different genres – Anything upbeat by Michael Jackson (PYT is a pretty good one!)… Uptown Funk, of course… and also some rock songs like Still Frame by Trapt or The Kill by 30 Seconds to Mars. And then, of course, there's always Disney soundtracks. 🙂
What's the best book you've read this year? (Business or fiction)
Oh man, this is a tough one! I've set a personal book goal of 75 books this year, so I've been really rushing to get through as many as possible! Fiction book, I'd have to say “Unwind” is fantastic. It's my favorite genre – young adult dystopian novels – but it's got some really thought-provoking themes. Business-wise… I just started (again) Michael Port's Book Yourself Solid, and I'm getting a lot of value from it.
I love to play business matchmaker. What area of your business could you use help with, in case the Socially Aligned audience or I can hook you up with someone?
I could use an AMAZING VA who's got tech know-how, some research capability, and who's really interested in learning my business and my “crazy” so we can be an unstoppable team. I have a job ad I'll be posting before too long, so I'm hoping to get lots of super qualified eyeballs on that!
Apple or PC?
PC. My business partner's an Apple, though!
What's your favorite social media network for business?
I do love my Facebook. Twitter is cool, I guess, but foreign to me – and Facebook lets you communicate in as many characters as you want! Plus the groups are simply fantastic – and you can find groups for just about anything!
What hidden talent do you have that people would be surprised to learn of?
I can wiggle my right ear. Not sure why my left ear doesn't get in the game, but my right one likes to wiggle.
Give us the elevator pitch – what do you do and where can people find you online to connect?
Ooh, good – I've worked on this a lot lately! 🙂
