Q&A Time – featuring Lorraine Dallmeier

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

It’s a complete tie between the power of flight and the power of teleportation. Either way I want to be able to move great distances at speed. Perhaps that’s a metaphor for how I work in business!

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

At the moment I’m totally into Pharrell Williams and his 24 Hours of Happy.

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

“Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion” by Robert Cialdini. Or at least, it was the best book I’d read all year until I lost it somewhere in the house (which really isn’t that big!). Personally I think one of my children has hidden it under the sofa. I’m still on a mission to find 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?

It’s got to be marketing, but I’m still busy reading and learning and reading some more to try and get my head around the whole concept. Once I feel ready to branch out, I’ll come and find the right person or maybe they’ll come to me. 🙂

Apple or PC?

I used to be a PC girl. I was never going to leave Windows behind. Then one evening my boyfriend showed me his MacBook Pro and I was HOOKED! Within a month I had my MacBook Air ordered and I am never ever ever ever EVER going back to PC. …did I mention that I now like Macs?

What's your favorite social media network for business?

At the moment it’s Pinterest. My business involves teaching women how to make 100% natural and organic skincare, so there’s a huge amount of overlap with Pinterest which is dominated by women and craft projects.

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

I play piano and guitar. I am bilingual in Dutch and English. And I can survive on a tiny amount of sleep to run my business, as I’ve learned in the last four years since having children.

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

Hi! My name is Lorraine and I’m a Botanical Skincare Scientist. I teach people how to make 100% natural and organic skincare and I blog about skincare science. My School is called Formula Botanica – here I sell courses to women all around the world who dream of setting up their own natural skincare business. You can find me over at www.formulabotanica.com, www.diybeautydiva.com and www.herbhedgerow.co.uk.

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