Weeks ago I got an email from Alex that she needed some help to create a website for a family friend who runs a few restaurants. While looking into improving those websites, we had a conversation on how she would love to set up a website to help out the food truck scene in Chicago. I really saw what a great opportunity there was for her and the community she lives in.
I think Alex is a unique person who looking and reaching out for opportunities. I have to say that her energy motivates me when we speak or write. She has a unique way of creating opportunities and then going after them. I met Alex a while back when I was collaborating with her on a blog. Alex has many traits including being bilingual and immersing herself in the hispanic/latino community. She speaks Spanish fluently and better yet she understands our culture and is constantly learning.
I have been working with Alex on a few projects and I have been able to see how determined she is to getting things going. In my life I have worked with very few people who make things happen as quickly as Alex.
I am amazed on how approachable Alex is. Although she is involved in many things she is very quick to respond to your requests and has a good ear to listen and later on offer good advice.
One the traits that makes Alex really stand out is her attention to detail. She knows that I am vegetarian so weeks ago she sent me these delicious soups. It meant a lot to me. Alex interacts with many people but she had rembered that I was vegetarian and she took the time to send me such an awesome gift.
A few weeks ago when I told her business was fairly slow, she quickly offered help and in days I was bidding for a few projects. Not only has she given me the opportunity to work with her, but she has referred me via various online channels which has brought me a significant amount of leads.
I have many contacts but only my real friends which are only a handful will take action and reach out to as quickly as Alex with possible solutions.
I am always trying to improve myself as a person and I look up to people like Alex and use them as an example. I want to be a bit more like Alex; I wish we had many more people like Alex Levine in this world.
In appreciation for the help and inspiration Alex has given me ,I ask that you to go check out her new project FoodTruckFreak.com and spread the word.
It was a pleasure working with Alex on this project and I am looking forward to more projects where we can brainstorm and produce awesome results.
