We had the good fortune of connecting with Alana Jenks and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Alana, what’s your definition for success?
I believe that we should consider an additional perspective on success. To me, the definition of success transcends the domain of the business world. It encompasses emotion. Feeling. Mood. Connection. Success is about smiles. To me, being successful is when you put a genuine smile on someone’s face. Whether it is because you helped a person with something, did something nice for them, or simply made a hilarious joke. 

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am a creator on the social media app Tik Tok. Compared to other creators on Tik Tok, I am not that big of a creator, but I will always be proud of how far I have come. The lessons I have learned from my experience are that all eyes could be watching you, so you have to set an example for younger people who might be looking up at you.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
My favorite place to visit in Socal currently is Del Mar or Pacific Beach. There are many sights to see in these areas, and even people watching in these areas are very fun!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
The biggest people in my life are 100% my family and friends. I know I can always count on them to have my back. My mom is a huge supporter in my life. She is one of the strongest people I know. Through thick and thin, she is always there for me.
