I've coached countless entrepreneurs in how to build a company culture and use it to find, attract, hire, onboard & retain awesome people for your company. I have put together and run interview processes a three companies, and interviewed thousands of applicants.
Built the MVP for TheMuse.com, and then evolved it where it is today with 1.5M monthly active users. Experience launching a product with a longer timeline, and also in several weeks true lean MVP style while going through Y Combinator. I can help think through what features are really necessary, what to pare down and how to get to launch faster.
I get upwards of 10,000 emails a month and am almost always at inbox zero. I write a bi-weekly column about productivity tools and tricks on TheMuse.com and frequently give talks on the subject. I can help talk through questions of time and inbox management, prioritization and to do list, to help you make the time for what is most impactful, and not go crazy in the meantime.
Highly HIGHLY recommended! Super supportive and a great listener... Alex also has a really great, positive energy! Hope that she'll make the time to speak with me in the future!
Alexandra was super helpful. She had great feedback for me.
Alex is the best - she's both warm and focused. She shares her experience in a way that's inspiring while also specific and actionable.
I'd recommend talking with Alex if you're feeling overwhelmed and need to get more done, if you're about to undertake a new project or role and need to create time out of nowhere, or if you're an veteran productivity hacker looking for advanced feedback from a thoughtful expert. I learn something valuable every time I get to speak with Alex.
