Head of International Business

— THE YES, MORE THAN NO MAN —
Born in south of Sweden back in the early ’80s, He came from a loving family, with two siblings and with a caring father and loving mother. Everything that he is today he learnt from his parents and his mentors. His goal in life is now to give that knowledge to the rest of the planet.

Life for Alex has not been easy even if it may seem to be that on the outside, he has struggled with dark demons on the inside through his childhood, and even when he became an adult. The stories are many and the takeaway will optimize your life if you choose to accept the honest truth. Everything started with one YES, and if Alex can do it, so can YOU.

Communication is the key to all success in the world, be a part of the movement!
