Q&A Time – featuring Hannah Becker of The Motivated Millennial

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

Flying, so I could shave valuable minutes off my commutes. I’ve always found “traffic time” to be a little frustrating, as it is neither relaxing nor productive, and would love to minimize the time commitment traditional transportation usually requires.

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

Toby Keith’s How Do You Like Me Now. Since my elementary school days, I’ve always struggled with school, and was routinely called “stupid” or “dumb” by both peers and teachers. It wasn’t until my early twenties that I recognized such accusations were largely unfounded, as while I was unable to scrape out anything more than a D in college algebra, I had quite the knack for creating profitable businesses. It’s been very gratifying to have the opportunity to run into those teachers, professors, and classmates that criticized my abilities, and listen as they ask me (the “dumb” one) for job opportunities and business advice. I’d always hoped that one day Toby Keith’s song, “How Do You Like Me Know?” would come true for my life. One’s personal successes provide irrefutable validation of one’s abilities.

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

I loved communication expert Leil Lowdnes’ How to Talk to Anyone. Lowdnes practical communication and conversation tips “meet you where you are”, and can greatly enhance the quality of relationships whether it’s personal or business.

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?

As my business has continued to grow, I just don’t have the time to provide its social media marketing the attention it requires. I’d love to outsource my business’ Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest management.

Apple or PC?

PC. I use the exact same laptop I’ve had since college (6+ yrs old); am a creature of habit.

What's your favorite social media network for business?

Pinterest. I absolutely LOVE Pinterest. Incorporation of product pins for my online retail store has greatly increased our sales and following. Best ROI of any social media marketing I’ve invested in, as high conversion rate of our Pinterest followers making purchases.

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

I clog; it’s like tap dancing to bluegrass music. I spent a few years of my life living in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, and quickly feel in love with the rich folk heritage of the Appalachian Mountains.

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

I own an online retail store and local service company. I am currently working on my first book, “The Motivated Millennial: An Entrepreneurial Guidebook for Generation Y”. Connect with me online at www.themotivatedmillennial.com and on Facebook.

Now for my social media tip of the week! And since Hannah mentioned Pinterest, that will be the topic! {See the embedded Facebook post below.}
