Let’s Get Social – featuring Vannessa Vinos

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

This week I am featuring Vannessa Vinos of Luxuria Jewellery – one of Europe's much-loved online jewelry boutiques!

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.

Q&A Time – featuring Vannessa Vinos, Luxuria Jewellery Boutique

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

If I were a super hero I would love the super power to be able to fly. So when I get fed-up of a situation (or person), I can just take off. Also it would be great not to have to check-in anymore at the airport.

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

OK, this is going to be controversial, but lately I crank up Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines. I know what you are thinking, but let me explain. I am a huge soul fan and there are elements of that song that really remind my of one of my fans, Marvin Gaye ;-). I have also started cranking up Happy by Pharrell Williams also.

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

OK, the best book I have read so far this year (and am now re-reading for the second time) is Choose Yourself by James Altucher. Can't recommend it highly enough especially if you are an entrepreneur. There are also some great interviews with him on You Tube. {Note from Julie – it's on sale for 99¢ right now on Amazon! Wow!}

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?

Growing my email list. That is still a biggie for me that I haven't got sussed yet.

Apple or PC?

Ooooh! definitely an Apple girl.

What's your favorite social media network for business?

I think my favorite social media platform for business is Facebook.

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

I trained at the Cordon Bleu cookery school (just as a hobby) in London. I love nothing better than cooking up a storm. I'm not sure it's a talent, but something I really enjoy doing.

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

I'm an ex-Criminal Psychologist who has swapped “bad boys” for sparkles. Now my love is to bring a little color, design and preciousness into a woman's day. 😉
