Q and A with Alexandria A. from Cherry Hill, New Jersey; living in Denver, Colorado
“Time is simply a witness and watches us do or not do. Courage is the catalyst between here and there.”
Q: What were your younger years like?
A: I’m an Italian Jersey girl with a loud, in-your-face, meatball lovin’ family. I was so fortunate to grow up with the wild pack because they taught me the value of hard work and to love what you do. Witnessing my family doing work that they loved shaped my entire belief system around “work.” It was inevitable that I start my own business and do it on purpose.
I’m a daddy’s girl, and I attribute a lot of my success to how he raised me. He gave me no option but to believe fiercely, love deeply, and go out there and change the world …and do that all for ME FIRST. I wouldn’t have the confidence I have today without his constant reminder and celebration of what was possible.
Q: What are you passionate about?
A: Oh, man! If we’re going real big here, I’m passionate about LIFE. The feeling of possibility excites me and knowing that life has little miracles in store for me every single day.
I co-founded a company called Purpose Pioneers (aka my baby) founded on the belief of creating a world where people fully align what they do to make money with what they do to experience meaning and fulfillment in their lives. We call it the “sweet spot” between purpose and profit. We bring this belief to life by empowering established entrepreneurs to do 2 things… systematize their business so it can scale with purpose, then go beyond the business so they can transform into a thought leader and birth a movement by speaking on stage. It’s pretty damn magical!
I’m currently 1 week away from hosting the Purpose Pioneers Thought Leadership Virtual Summit; 5 days of bringing Purpose Pioneers together from all over the world and giving them the mindset, tools, and inspiration to turn their business into a movement during a time of crisis. We’re then going to host the LIVE version this coming July in Denver, Colorado. Woot woot!
Q: What is something valuable you’d like others to know?
A: Things don’t take time; they take courage. Time is simply a witness and watches us do or not do. Courage is the catalyst between here and there. If you choose to act courageously moment to moment, it is then that you can play in the field of possibility and turn your dreams into reality.
Q: What does feminism mean to you?
A: Feminism to me is showing up in our true, divine feminine power… and it’s a choice. It’s choosing curiosity in the face of judgment. It’s choosing ownership in the face of blame. It’s choosing to operate from a place of wholeness. It’s choosing to fill up our cup first so we can serve from a place of overflow. It’s choosing to be the light in the dark. Women are powerful beings…if we choose to be.
