Preparing your self for Success with Entrepreneur and Social Media Sensation Alex Bostanian

Does it ever get difficult having such a large online presence?
Nothing in life is difficult unless you allow it to be! There’s always a solution!

There are occasional privacy and security concerns I have to deal with every now and then haha, but I think I’ve done a fairly decent job in setting up the necessary precautions to deal with those concerns early on.

What are the positive and negative aspects of having such a massive fan base?

It’s wonderful that I have the opportunity to reach out, motivate, and share parts of my life with so many amazing people from all walks of life.

On the downside, I also do attract some disingenuous people who I usually filter out quite quickly!

Do you ever get noticed in public? 

Every now and then, and I’m fortunate to be well received! I try to build a relationship with my followers, however, I don’t get around to communicating with all of them as often as I’d like!

What is some advice you would give to someone that is aspiring to become a public figure like yourself? 

Make sure you’re mentally and psychologically prepared to handle the position, and everything associated with it, whether it be good or bad! Superficially you may think it’s a simple task, however considering many studies suggest a direct correlation between social media use and mental health issues, you should always moderate your activity!

Do you think too much social media is bad for someones mental health?

Too much of anything is bad for you, Absolutely! I know this may seem counterintuitive to many influencers, business owners, etc.. but I can’t preach this enough.. moderation is key! Read a book, enjoy the company of your loved ones, volunteer, designate time to uninterrupted activities! Haha It’s ok to put your phone away!

My priority is my mental wellbeing, health, happiness, family, close friends, and business above all else.. which is why I take intermittent breaks from social media. You may not see me active for extended periods of time.. but don’t fret, I’m just taking care of life and business!

You currently have a tremendous following! Over half a million followers! Are you working towards the 1 million milestone?

I’m grateful for all the love and support I’ve received from followers all over the world! Excited to see what the future holds!

Where can we follow your journey?
