Alyssa Young joins Not a Great Whisperer Podcast to talk about her journey and the career she has built for herself. Her story started with trauma, and has blossomed into triumph. Alyssa is a 24-year old Florida native. Alyssa has had a hand in multiple industries throughout her professional career, including healthcare, business advising, the beauty industry, and has now landed in the technology field, helping to bring entrepreneur’s dreams to life on the World Wide Web! Alyssa is the Chief Officer of Operations, as well as a Co-Founder, for two technology companies in the Greater Tampa Bay Area: StackMind and Shire Cloud (coming soon). StackMind’s mission is to shake up the game of the technology industry, allowing their clients to ditch the traditional “brick and mortar” mindset and enter into the digital realm. StackMind focuses not only on web development, but also guiding their clients from the ground up in creating their brand. She is also the Founder and Chief Blogger of The Unlimited Refills Blog. The Unlimited Refills Blog began when Alyssa realized we’re always keeping our coffee cups full, so why aren’t we putting that much focus on keeping our own personal cups full? Her blog touches on work-life balance, what a healthy workplace consists of, the importance of mental health, and many of her own personal testimonials. Alyssa describes herself as an advocate of mental health, women supporting women, and is heavily involved in the local nonprofit organization, EmpowHERment, as one of their Brand Ambassadors. She is a leader, mentor, team player, and a “forever student,” as she always finds herself grasping new information. Throughout her journey, Alyssa advocates she is NOT a victim of what she went through, but a victor of what she was able to overcome to be where she is today. Enjoy the real, unedited conversation with Katy and Alyssa.
