Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance

Raised in Springfield, Missouri, Alex was taught the value of hard work since childhood. When things needed to be done around the house, his father preferred to do it himself – and Alex got to learn alongside him.

While the importance of physical labor was instilled at a young age, it wasn’t until middle school when Alex learned the true meaning of entrepreneurship. His new neighbor owned a property management company, and he taught Alex the benefits of being your own boss along with three vital pieces of advice: Always have the mindset of the boss, treat any company you work for as your own, and creating value will bring monetary wealth.

With an eager mind, Alex started looking into how he could make money while being his own boss. Through numerous research encounters and tryouts, he learned the real estate business – which is how he flipped five homes within a year, all before the age of 22.

Alex eventually found his passion for Austrian economics while studying at the University of Missouri. Searching for extra income while an undergraduate was what led him to become interested in SEO (search engine optimization.) He worked alongside a mentor who taught him the ins and outs of the digital marketing world.

Alex currently owns his own company, iRank, which has a vested interest in three online companies. He’s been living abroad since the summer of 2018 which has allowed him to explore the world and all it has to offer.
