Hey, I’m Alex…
Welcome to AlexBrownOfficial.net, a platform where self-improvement meets action. I’m Alex Brown, a personal development writer and speaker. And I’m on a mission to empower individuals to reach their full potential and achieve their dreams.
I understand life can be challenging and that the path to success is not easy. That’s why I created this platform, to provide a no-nonsense approach to self-improvement.
Here, you will find the tips, tools, and tactics to overcome obstacles and achieve your goals.
This was me at 16 years old in 2008.
A pot-smoking, party-going, 3-time high school dropout. This was the lowest moment in my life: I was a broke, jobless, high-as-a-kite dropout with no hope for the future.
I blamed everything and everyone for my miserable lot in life.
And this continued for several years until I finally realized the real problem—me. I took the easy way out too many times. And now, I was paying for it with poor self-esteem, a low-quality social circle, and a lack of direction.
So I cleaned up my act: I quit the drugs, stopped partying, ditched the loser friends and began focusing on my goals. And the one thing I truly care about at the time? music.
Moving in a Positive Direction
I began practicing freestyle rapping every day. As a result, I developed my skills to where I built a reputation for myself as the premier freestyle rapper in my city.
This notoriety led to countless performance opportunities at:
- School assemblies
- Summer camps for kids
- Charity events
- Nightclubs, etc
Personal Development Speaker
My love for rap eventually evolved into a love for public speaking. This was a natural consequence of my recognizing the value of self-improvement.
The more I improved myself, the more my life improved along with me. And I wanted to inspire others with that message. So I began speaking on the power of self-improvement, goal setting, discipline, healthy habits, etc.
I had the honour and privilege of speaking at:
- The YMCA
- The Western Canada Leadership Conference
- The 12th Annual My World Conference
- The Calgary Police Department
- Numerous schools assemblies and charity events
And it was as a self-improvement speaker that I started my first blog.
Initially, the purpose of that blog was to bolster my speaking career. But as I wrote about self-improvement and personal development every day, I realized another avenue I could inspire others—the written word.
Transition to Self-Improvement Writer
I decided writing was another path I could spread my message.
So I blogged every day and even self-published my first self-help book. This led to me freelancing and eventually, landing a position as a full-time writer at one of the best Digital Marketing agencies in Canada.
I was also making strides in other areas; I had…
- Run two marathons (and four half marathons)
- Started training in martial arts
- Gotten in the best shape of my life
And now, I had my dream job.
And all of this stemmed from taking consistent action, cutting the excuses, and focusing on my goals and dreams.
I changed my life, and now, I want to help change yours…
