I was born…

In Houston Texas, grew up in a small town called Bexley, Ohio for 13 years. I loved growing up there, but knew there was more to life than one small little town in Ohio.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

Is the “go get it” attitude, Fast paced lifestyle. People here get stuff done. People here are driven to become successful. Also… The girls here are gorgeous and most are down to earth and cool. No complaints. I love the desert.

I am listening to…

Big Sean, Drake, Jay Z. Music that motivates me to get up in the morning and get after it. Life is too short to not be excited and motivated to accomplish what you want out of life. Their music puts me in the right mindset to get it done.

My family…

Is the most important thing to me. Not just blood related, but my friends that have become my family. In the business I’m in.. My team is my family. I’d die for them.

If I could have dinner with anyone..

It would be Drake. He “started from the bottom now he’s here” he’s young, successful, driven to achieve greatness, fought through oppression/haters on his “come up.” His music speaks to me. His “Take Care” album basically describes my last 24 months. He’s a good guy, means well, He’s also Jewish. That’s cool.

One thing I cannot live without is…

A real good blender. I like making crazy smoothies with all kinds of random ingredients. All my friends think their gross until they try them and they love them. Always on the move so badass smoothies are a must.

When I was younger I wanted to be…

I never really had one specific dream. I knew I wanted to be successful. When I was a little kid I was fascinated with “celebrity/role models”.. I wanted to be someone people looked up to. Watching the TV show “Entourage” at 16 years old I always found myself fantasizing about that lifestyle. Getting rich with your friends. Doings what you wanted, whenever you wanted to. Cars, Jets, Money.. I knew I wanted to make millions. I knew I wanted to “make it”… Teachers always told me to “pay attention and stop day dreaming”.. Thing was I was envisioning the future. That day dream was as real as it could have been, just wasn’t happening in real life that day. But rest assured I knew it’d be reality someday, some how. Imagination is everything.

I’m inspired by…

Great leaders. I was blessed to have to parents who led multi-million dollar companies. My dad was a college drop out, mom has a masters degree.. BUT I watched them lead people, lead organizations, help change people’s lives. I’m inspired by wealthy people who give back. One of my goals is to fund scholarships for kids who are like me. Young, hungry, driven, not 4.0 students, kids who want to be different, kids who don’t just want to get a degree to get a job, kids going against the grain. think it speaks volumes when people give back. I want to spend the first half of my life making money and the second half giving it away for the betterment of humanity. Martin Luther King, Donald Trump, Richard Branson, BK Boreyko, Lebron James, Drake, Steve Jobs, Zuckerberg, my mom and dad.

The one person who motivates me is…

My mom. She taught me early on that “life is what you make of it.” I remember her reading me “the little engine that could”‘when I was a kid. Meaning keep on keeping on. If you believe in something it can happen through hard work, dedication, sacrifice. My mom is unreal. I question sometimes if she’s even human. Growing up she was like the mom for all my friends. My friend would turn to her before their own parents. She has a heart of gold. She also taught me that it’s not what you make, it’s what you spend. (Currently trying to get that one through my head haha). She’s my hero. Armenian moms can also cook!! Best chef ever!! and she still does my laundry when I’m home at 23. Now that’s a #1 mom right there.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

The educational system. Honestly, it’s messed up. It creates a society of robots. 9-5, $60,000 a year, 2 vacations a year, employee mindset, and virtually never having enough money to enjoy life. They teach kids how to beg for a job, become employable. They should teach kids how to be creative, communicate effectively, build businesses, become entrepreneurs. From 0-12 then 4 years of college.. No one ever taught me how to earn money, or be a leader. In my opinion it’s laughable. Oh.. and it costs a fortune, you put yourself in a black hole of debt, and you have under a 50% chance of getting a job upon graduating? Anyone else see a problem here? A professor earning $55,000 a year (with all due respect) cannot teach me or anyone else how to make a million dollars.

The perfect day would be…

Waking up to a beautiful and down to earth girl (96% chance she’s brunette) make real good protein shakes with fruit and peanut butter. Go for a three mile run outside, workout. Shower. Phone calls, emails, social media, set up the days Skype and oovoo calls, read part of a good business book, listen to some personal development, speak at Vemma home events at 3, 5, 7.. Then eat sushi. Hot tub, cigars, wine with the family (my Vemma team).. GamePlanning the future, goal setting, bettering ourselves. Then sleeping and doing it all over again. OR… A deserted island with a cabana on the beach. No cell phones, just relaxing with my closest friends.

My first job was…

My first real job was at the parent company of Abercrombie and Fitch called Ruhel. I stood in the front of the store with a polo shirt (too small for me) and I greeted people. I was forced to say “hello have you tried our new skinny jeans yet?” I made $8.50 a hour. Almost got fired for not shaving my face and peeing at the wrong time. I was 17. I quit. and from the moment on.. I knew I was NEVER being told when to pee aka having a job again.

My favorite escape…

Is the gym. I put my phone in airplane mode so no one can talk to me. I listen to music, free my mind, day dream about the future, things I need to do, and workout. I love it.

My life…

Is crazy. I’m constantly in and out of airplanes, hotels, different cities and countries. I love it. Wouldn’t trade it for anything. I get paid to inspire others to achieve greatness. I get paid to help kids see that they truly can achieve whatever they want in life. My life is a dream.

I’m currently working…

On helping 100 kids under the age of 25, before I’m 25, achieve a level in our company where they are earning over $100,000 a year, most likely able to retire their parents, pay off student loan debt, and get a badass car. I’m currently at 12. So that means I have some work to do!!

Always..

Tell your parents and family how much you love and appreciate them. Once again. Family is everything. Don’t forget the little things. They are the most important.

Never..

Settle or be content. If you’re not growing your dying. If you’re average, get good, if your good, get great, if your great, become phenomenal.

Favorite Quote…

“Dream big dreams, small dreams have no magic.”

My biggest dream…

Is to one day walk on stage in front of 20,000-50,000 people. Deliver a great motivational and inspiring speech, and helping that many people change their lives for the better. All I want to do is help as many people as possible be their own boss, make alot of money, take control of their lives, and above all I want to leave a legacy. A legacy that one day when people hear my name.. They say “that Alex kid was phenomenal, he devoted all his time, energy, effort to help people better there lives.  After he earned millions, he started charities, scholarship foundations, and truly was a man of the people.” I want people to reach their full potential. Period.

My Pet Peeve…

Is average people. People with no aspirations, goals, dreams. People OK with being “normal”. God put you here for a reason. You beat 40,000,000 sperm to just be alive. Be phenomenal or be forgotten.
