Having a sense of humor and knowing how to keep calm, becomes a very powerful tool,” Alex says. “It also helps to be likeable, a keen listener, and a careful negotiator.” A natural born problem solver, with an uncanny ability to think outside the box, Alex quickly became an expert at identifying others’ needs and providing a hands-on approach and plan to help his clients achieve their goals.
