bossbabe WEB name
From coming up with her witty, smart-ass posts to building websites and making things go viral on the internet, the proud futurist @BOSSBABEALEX or otherwise known as Alexandra Wolf is shaping the way we envision the new business woman. Growing up during the 90s in Brooklyn, New York with her Italian, gay dad who was obsessed with tech (and Barbra Streisand) this #bossbabe learned very early how to build digital empires with lots of swag. Alex was using a mouse at two and emailed the spice girls by five. Her dad bought her a webcam (way before they were cool) at eight years old. She would create mock television talk shows and lip-sync to destiny’s child all before she got her homework done. Through her passion for social influence and trends she has developed an intimidatingly impressive talent for spotless brand creation, innovative marketing and analyzing social impact.
