My name is Ben T. Alexander.
I’m a middle class guy from New Jersey… a single Dad with 2 daughters… both of my girls recently finished college!
The picture above is from the late 1990’s, that’s me and my oldest daughter Claire.
I owned a talent agency from 2003 until 2018 and pitched that company (Balloon Distractions) on season 5 of Shark Tank back in 2014, so there’s that.
We had 400 entertainers in 17 cities, it was a fun business and I met a ton of great people over those years. I was also happy to sell Balloon Distractions and move on to a new chapter in my life.
In 2017 I went into the solar business with veteran owned and operated Tampa Bay Solar. Green tech is a frequent subject throughout this blog…. and whatever else I’m thinking about on any given day.
I’m currently an equity partner at Tampa Bay Solar. I love selling solar, and showing my sales team how to do the same.
On a personal level I believe that we need more compassion in our world; more love, more understanding.
Taking care of the environment we all share is really about compassion, for all living things on this planet.
I was in Rotary for a few years, and I went to Honduras to install water filters with a wonderful organization called Pure Water for the World. I’m a weekly volunteer with Habitat for Humanity over in Dade City, just north of Tampa.
I write this stuff for my own enjoyment, if you like it feel free to comment on any of the posts.
