College and elite level athletes are often characterized as entitled, selfish, and transactional when it comes to relationships. The truth is, most athletes don't know how to use their influence but more importantly, they don't know how to align their purpose with their passion and what adjustments need to be made to their character when they start to transition into the real world.
However, these athletes have something inside of them that sets them apart from most people. They know the importance of sacrifice, focus, determination, hard work & discipline. These attributes when applied in everyday life and linked to their foundation of knowing who they are can help them have success in any arena when they finish playing their sport.
“I've known Alex for many years and for as great as an athlete he is, he's a better person. Alex's life experiences as a high-level college athlete, NFL player, husband, and father give him a unique perspective on the challenges that face athletes. After a successful NFL career, he has done a remarkable job using the power of sports to transition from professional athlete to speaker and now author. One goal we should all have is to be around highly successful individuals who are passionate about their craft and want to help people. Alex checks all those boxes.”

“Before I knew Alex as an ‘inspirational speaker,’ I knew him as a father of 8. I could tell by the way the family interacted and impacted others, they were under great leadership. I knew from that first interaction that he was someone that was making a great impact, not for the children in his home but everyone that came in contact with him.”

“Alignment, Assignment, Adjustment, was a tool that Alex gave me to transition to the next chapter of my life during so much uncertainty. His positive mindset rubbed off on me and has helped me not fear what lies ahead. He’s truly one of the best at what he does!!”

You have climbed to the top of the mountain. You are an athlete who has done some phenomenal things. You know what it takes to lead and win. But what do you do when it’s time to transition out of the sports arena (or off the field) and join the “real world?” So much of what you’ve done on your platform was cheered and sometimes jeered. Your character has been intertwined with your athletic ability since you were a kid, and once you exit(ed) your sport, you find yourself lost.
This is where I come in. I work with athletes, celebrities, entrepreneurs, and Fortune 500 executives to align their purpose with their passion, assigning whom they want to become and where they want to go. I then help uncover beneficial character and relationship adjustments so they can live their life to the fullest.
I love spending time with my wife and our eight children playing hoops, golfing, and smashing them in table tennis, foosball, and/or dominoes.
