About this program

The Alyce All-Stars program exists to highlight Alyce Customers and Friends who have mastered the art of “personal experience.”

An All-Star prioritizes Building Rapport, Earning Trust, and Generating Loyalty over making someone feel like just another face in the crowd.

All-Stars challenge the status quo and – while they’re not officially Alyce employees – we consider them an extension of our team. They find creative ways to infuse our core values of Give First, Give Consistently, Be Crafty, Seize the Present, and Unwrap the Possibility into their unique way of doing business.

This week’s All-Star is Alec Meyer, Enterprise Sales at Postclick!

Learn More About Alec Meyer

Q: Share with us some of your personal interests?
My biggest interest right now is definitely riding my bike. I moved out to the Bay Area from Arizona and part of that motivation was being able to ride all year round in beautiful areas. Besides that, I used to work in the beer, wine, and spirits industry so one of my hobbies is going to different bottle shops or breweries to try and find the latest and greatest limited release. It’s kind of like collecting baseball cards.

Q: What was your first screen name?
LAXAlec. I remember getting it when I was in elementary school and I had just started playing lacrosse and I was all about it. I played lacrosse up until college so the username held pretty true and it’s not as embarrassing as some other ones.

Q: What song is on repeat right now for you?
This may be because of TikTok but “You’reThe One”

Q: As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a veterinarian. I thought it was the coolest thing. I worked at the humane society in Tucson as a way to get me exposed and involved after high school but getting into vet school is harder than getting into Medical School so I pivoted.

Q: What’s your favorite thing about the place where you live? Why and how do you take advantage of it?
I’m from Tucson Arizona. I really liked it because I think it’s like a hidden gem. It’s a nice, tucked away destination that’s really funky. I have a lot of pride about where I’m from and am the biggest advocate for people visiting southern Arizona.

Q: What would be the title of your memoir?
I think I would call it False Starts. I’ve had a lot of things I’ve started doing or thought I wanted to do, taken a step in that direction and realized it wasn’t for me. I’ve been confident about knowing myself, pivoting, and moving in a direction I think is better for me.

Q: What’s something you consider yourself to be ok at but not great at?
I want to say cleaning my house and getting organized, as well as time management. I’m ok at those things but there are some small things that always slip through the cracks.

Q: What is the best gift you have ever received?
I received a watch from a brand called Shinola from my great aunt. She’s from Michigan where Shinola is headquartered and loved the story behind the brand. After she gave me this watch it really ignited a passion in me not only for watches but handmade goods. Owning something that people took extra care in making and creating an item at the highest level possible really gets me excited.

Q: Beach, safari, or forest vacation?
I want to say Safari. I’m the type that wants to be doing something on my vacation. I really value sitting on the beach and relaxing but I would love to be on a safari.

Q: If you could give a piece of advice to your younger self, what would it be?
Don’t be afraid to ask for help. I think that’s a problem that plagued me when I was younger. I was always reluctant to raise my hand and ask for help. I figured it was my problem I created so it was my struggle and responsibility. As I grew up and recognized that asking for help could be the best thing you can do, I would urge my younger self to stop hesitating to raise his hand and ask someone to help you out.

Q: Would you rather be an olympic gold medalist or win a nobel prize? And why?
I think winning a Nobel Prize would carry a little more weight and have a larger global impact than a gold medal.

Q: Are you a morning person or a night owl? How do you like to start your day?
I would say I’m a morning person. I like to get up and ride my bike before I’m at my desk working. It’s a great way for me to wake up.

Q:How did you meet your childhood best friend?
His name is Dominic and I met him at the YMCA program called Tumble Tots which was kid’s gymnastics. I can’t remember how we became friends but we hit it off.

Q: If you could live through any event in history, what event would that be? Why would you want to live through that event?
Being able to live through the civil rights era and watching that all unfold. That’s such a crucial part of our history that changed things moving forward and I think being a witness to that would be very impactful.
