voltaic

Alexandra Franzen Alexandra Franzen promotional writer. personal supergirl. secret weapon.

Alexandra Franzen is a promotional writer and pro-active pimp who wrangles communications for pro-bloggers and helps entrepreneurs expand their empires--without the hassle of cloning. [www.alexandrafranzen.com]

Energy is ELECTRIC. It’s a kinetic experience of being “turned on” by ideas, actions, and intentions. When I’m living in alignment with my strengths, I’m an unstoppable live wire. But when I take on a project or enter a relationship that’s misaligned with my values, I feel it – physically – as a full-body electrical outage. And frankly, that blows.

A year ago, I was a walking, talking, city-wide black-out. Ungrateful, unmotivated, underwhelmed by my chosen career track. I’d lost my spark, my sense of purpose, and – more critically – my sense of possibility. I was 25. I was dimming out. And I was terrified.

Then, in the midst of the Great Recession, I quit my 9-to-5 job and became a full-throttle freelancer. I hustled. I prayed. I polished my portfolio. I made peace with my worst-case scenario – slinging beer in a biker bar and eating saltine crackers for dinner. And my electrical currents began to crackle.

Reveling in the world of digital entrepreneurship, I found what’s most meaningful to me: helping extraordinary people package, present, and promote their gifts to the galaxy. By ecstatically rolling around in that realization, like a puppy with its belly to the sky, I discovered my own gifts and my inner electricity.

As a promotional writer, I’m constantly searching for evocative, underutilized words to weave into marketing materials for my clients. I recently landed upon the word voltaic: (adj.) pertaining to electric currents, especially when produced by chemical reaction. I became fixated on the word and found myself writing it on Post-It notes, in journals, on shopping lists … it became a textual mantra. A symbol for the life – and the world – I want to co-create.

The ability to design a VOLTAIC life – a life of unbridled enthusiasm and authentic engagement – is a privilege, a thrill, and the essence of entrepreneurship.

So, what’s meaningful to me? E-l-e-c-t-r-i-c-i-t-y. Soulful self-promotion. Supersonic storytelling. Sizzling synchronicity. Striking symbiosis. I want everyone on earth to feel like an active switchboard as often as possible. Screw light bulb moments … I want lightning bolts of brilliance!
