“If you have to show up on social media every hour to be significant then you aren’t significant.”
— Alex Wolf

I often speak about the importance of self-reflection, but is there a point where we become overexposed to ourselves?

Today’s guest, Alex Wolf, founder of Boss Babe, unloads a cathartic insight on social media and the exposure that comes along with it.

The pros to social media can be great. We have the ability to share our lives with many others and create more personal relationships in a short amount of time.

However, at what point do we spend too much time focusing on our own image and not enough time focusing on our lives?

Alex exposes the cons of societies’ overexposure to ourselves through social media and the pressure it can bring. Like her new novel, Resonate, Alex explores how social media can be used by young entrepreneurs to build their brand while sharing insight on the mindset needed to maintain such a brand.
