Beth Brown

The largest online referral network for small businesses, is announcing the results of its national search for leaders who’ve gone above and beyond guiding peers and supporting entire communities as they strive to recover.

Alignable’s network has chosen Beth Brown of Shine Social Co. as Edmond, Oklahoma’s 2022 Business Person of the Year for the second year in a row.

“In our business community, you end up receiving more than you give,” said Brown. “And the challenges we’ve all encountered have compelled many of us to offer counsel and other support to peers struggling to keep their businesses afloat. While I’m thrilled to receive this award, it’s really a testament to this entire community. And it reinforces my resolve to help all of my business ‘Oklahomies’ to build and rock their business so that we’re all fulfilling our purposes.”

Brown received a special badge on her Alignable profile, recognizing this big win. In past years, the awareness generated through similar contests has spurred expanded connections, as well as new business for many winners.

“At Shine Social Co., we love to help business owners who want to show up better on social media but a) lack the time to do it consistently, or b) don’t really know how to do it effectively. Many of the businesses we help allow us to fully manage their social media, from writing content to creating graphics, so they don’t have to give it a second thought. Others just need social media 101 guidance. That’s when we help guide and teach them to create a monthly strategy and plan for posting on their own.
