My name is Benjamin T. Alexander.
I went on the show Shark Tank back in 2014, click on the link above to check it out.
I’m a middle class guy from New Jersey with a wife and 2 daughters. This picture above is from the late 1990’s, that’s me and my oldest daughter Claire, who is now a college student.
I became an entrepreneur in 2003 because I wanted to have the time to read and write, without having to punch a clock 40 hours per week. I can’t work in a cubicle, slaving away for a faceless corporation.
I live in Tampa Bay, but occasionally Balloon Distractions or the LIFE business takes me somewhere else. Starting in 2017 I went into the residential / commercial solar business. Green tech is a frequent subject throughout this blog.
On a personal level I believe that we need more compassion in our world; more love, more understanding.
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. There are pictures and videos on this link:
I write this stuff for my own enjoyment, if you like it feel free to comment on any of the posts.
