We’ve all felt it: The full-body YES you experience when you come across the item on a menu, for example, that speaks to you. You know that’s what you want. The challenge is to recognize and trust the yes/no responses you encounter on a daily basis and explore how the essence of those responses reveals your global contribution.

His diverse background includes a stint as a marketing and design consultant and an entrepreneurial venture teaching hand-to-hand combat. But it was during his time as a personal trainer that Alex began to understand his passion for understanding the relationship between the body and the mind, and how we can use that connection to improve our lives. Alex pursued a master’s in Conscious Evolution, and now his is on a mission to help leaders and creators discover and embody their own global contribution, reaching new levels in their business and personal lives.
