Welcome back for another week of Let's Get Social, where I feature a different entrepreneur every Sunday!
This week I am featuring Ida “Marie “ Briggs. 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 Ida:
If you were a superhero, what would your super power be?
I Promised Him Is Fly! So….I’m perfecting Ms. Marie! No super powers needed just a lot of hard work, understanding the ups and downs, discipline my disappointments & use what I’ve got to get to the next level. As I master Ms. Marie and reach for my fullest potential and go after my dreams, I can then help, teach or coach others to do the same.
What song do you crank up when you need a boost, or are celebrating a business victory?
What's the best book you've read this year? (Business or fiction)
True Essence if Love by Charlotte White The God Ask by Steven Shadrach 40 Days to Discovering Gods Big Plan for Your Life by Dr. Myles Munroe Soar by T.D. Jakes
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 am actually producing my first play, Excess Baggage…A Woman’s Story|Only You Know When You’ve Had Enough!!! I am asking for sponsorship as well as In-Kind Donations of products and services such as printing, videography, photography, advertising and marketing or sharing the event using your platform & connections, etc. I am also seeking volunteers to help on the day of the production.
Apple or PC?
I’m able to use both but am most comfortable with a PC.
What's your favorite social media network for business?
My favorite is Facebook especially since I can keep in touch with family and friends out of state. I’m developing my engagement using instagram and other social media platforms.
What hidden talent do you have that people would be surprised to learn of?
My creativity, optimism and resiliency are my strongest talents. My creativity keeps me busy, busy, busy, my optimism keeps me looking for those open doors and the resiliency give me the courage to reach for more especially when I don’t see one. I’ve been down a lot in my life but not down for the count. I’m expecting the best! Stay tuned there’s more to follow.
Give us the elevator pitch – what do you do and where can people find you online to connect?
I am a Creator, Fashion Designer, Entrepreneur & a Personal Development Life Coach. I encourage others to change their heart, “Use What You’ve Got,” “Lead With Your Strengths,” and Dream, Again! Develop & Deploy. On Purpose! Too many of us have stop dreaming and stopped believing. I’m creating a place where all things are possible. It’s Possible! Things are happening everyday!!!
