What A Restricted LinkedIn Account Taught Me

I didn’t notice that my LinkedIn account was restricted until a few days ago when I was writing articles. I already have trust issues, but this blew it. When social media goes blank on you, go back to email.

I really didn’t freak out, but I didn’t want to lose my connections that I’ve made, so I send a LinkedIn message to support and I got it back. When I got the message they told me that I violated their terms of service by sending spammy messages?

What’s scary is I haven’t used, messaged, sent a connection request in months. I haven’t posted a blog post since November 7th, 2018. I suspect it was hacked because when my mom looked me up it looked like this. But under my name was Africa with two connections under it.

What this taught me is to not rely on social media. If your business relies on social media, but you don’t have your emails with it? It could be costly. Gather emails people!

If you are a LinkedIn connection of mine, please message me your email. Thank you kindly. Otherwise I will reach out to you to get it.

LinkedIn I like you but this is the beginning of me not using your profile as much, my friend.

Hello There! I’m Alesha! I’m going to change up my bio (kind of long because my LinkedIn profile was recently restricted-Not sure why this happened, but just to get an idea of what I’ve done).

Hello There! I’ve been involved in different businesses in several different capacities from being ceo, coo, co-founder, and more. I’ve learned so much from creating businesses, and I look forward to all the learning experiences I will have from starting new ventures.

With one business I was involved with, we made it possible to install a little device with customized hardware and a SaaS solution implemented to the router, the business owner was able see live data about social media info collected.

With another company, we had professional internet marketing company that focus on digital marketing campaigns, services and jobs such as SEO, PPC, Online Reputation Management, and social media marketing.

With EYT, I oversaw day-to-day operations and keeping the CEO apprised of significant events;Yes I actually talk with my business partner on a daily basis. I created operations strategy and policies; Communicated strategy and policy to employees and interns; Fostering employee alignment with corporate goals; and overseeing human resource management. I also delegated tasks to my team.

My current project is Bones’ Custom Guitar. We create custom guitars for musicians with imported wood. No one Bones’ guitar is the same. We also repair guitars. Jared, my band mate came up with the idea and foundation for Bones’.

Long story cut short. I’ve been playing gigs and booking shoots. My go to guitar, Blu Blu broke during this. When I went to get it repaired in Indy getting it fixed cost way more than the actual cost of the guitar.

It didn’t seem right. After talking with other musicians in Indianapolis, Chicago, Nashville and other cities for second opinions they thought the shop was trying to pull a fast one. So our mission is to offer fair prices for repairs and custom guitars for fellow musicians.

We are both Indy & LA based.

My biggest project currently? I’m also involved in entertainment as an actress, founder, and producer. We are currently producing 2 film projects with one of them having 1 million in financing.
