Alex Charfen is an entrepreneur, author, speaker, and coach who has spent 3 decades on the front lines of entrepreneurship and business. He helps tens of thousands of entrepreneurs with six-, seven-, and eight-figure businesses to grow and scale.
Alex’s entrepreneurial journey started early on at a young age. In his twenties, Alex became a Fortune 500 consultant, working with some of the most successful people in the world. When he met his wife, Cadey, he sold his consulting business and together they invested heavily in the Florida real estate boom of the late 90’s, and soon found themselves prosperous, but highly leveraged. When the market took a dive, they lost everything and were forced to declare bankruptcy. “It was,” says Alex, “my darkest hour.” Rising from the ashes, they built an information product called the Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) where they worked with the majority of major lenders and real estate brokerages in the United States, and taught other Realtors what they’d learned, offering education, tools and hope. Later they discovered that many of these principles applied to any small business, and with this theory, CHARFEN was formed. Within the first few years, it became one of the fastest-growing small businesses in the country with the mission of empowering entrepreneurs to grow and scale their business and make their greatest contribution.
Sharing his journey with others has led Alex to write for publications such as Success, Entrepreneur, and Inc. Magazine, and his story has also garnered attention from major media outlets like MSNBC, CNBC, FOX News, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, and Investor’s Business Daily. As a result of his mentorship and success, Alex is now known as the go-to person for helping entrepreneurs ascend the Billionaire Code and understand how to plan strategically.
