Let’s Get Social – featuring Brigid Ward

Welcome back for another week of, Let's Get Social, where I feature a different entrepreneur every Sunday!

This week I am featuring Brigid Ward. 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 Brigid:

If you were a super hero, what would your super power be?

If I was a superhero and had superhero powers I would love to be able to talk to people who have passed on. I lost my dad 15 years ago and there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t miss him. My mom also just lost her husband of 9 years on the same day we lost my dad and to see her suffer and miss Bernie breaks my heart. If there was a way I could give her little notes of love from him I would do it in a nanosecond.

What song do you crank up when you need a boost, or are celebrating a business victory?

I love music, I seriously love it. I am often caught dancing in the car with my boys. I know you said one song, but I couldn’t just pick one. So, for a more current option I love and will always crank up “Happy” by Pharrell. And for an oldie but a goodie I love “Dancing in the Moonlight” by King Harvest and who doesn’t love a little Beyonce once in awhile. Yes, so for me to pick just one would be tough.

What's the best book you've read this year? (business or fiction)

The War of Art by Steven Pressfield I dealt with a lot of resistance this year and learning how to come up with a game plan to get me through the resistance and moving forward to get where I want to go has been wonderful. It’s a fabulous book and I highly recommend it.

I love to play business match maker. What area of your business could you use help with, in case the Socially Aligned audience or I can hook you up with someone?

At some point in the near future I will seriously need a social media guru to help me with my social media strategies and content plan. I love social media and have done it in my previous job to an extent, but I can spend WAY too much time doing it for my own business. I would love to sit down and brainstorm ideas with this individual and get them to help with strategies and help plan it all out for me etc. I just don’t have time to do it all.

Apple or PC?

Apple all the way. We have 5 computers in our house as it is, 3 of which are Macs, 2 iPads, 2 IPhones, a nano and an iPod. I think we are hooked.

What's your favorite social media network for business?

I absolutely love Twitter. I have grown my network on Twitter through consistency and have gained some subscribers to my list as well. I have only just started to really using Instagram and Google+ and I am seeing some great progress on those sites as well. Like I said, I love Social Media, but it can take some time to build a following.

What hidden talent do you have that people would be surprised to learn of?

I can really feel people’s energy. I can sense if they are a person that I can connect with in person in like a millisecond, but I can also feel their energy via email, just in how they write and come across. I have rarely been wrong. I pulled a mastermind together of 3 other amazing women all of us living down under, and I did it all based on energy. And one woman it was solely on what I saw her do on FB, never having spoken to her. And the four of us are such a good match. I just love them.

Give us the elevator pitch – what do you do and where can people find you online to connect?

I help women entrepreneurs who have a burning desire to start their own business, but get overwhelmed by everything that needs to get done. I take them step-by-step through the process, come up with our game plan and we get their dream biz launched and making money doing what they love.
