Social Media Genius / Relationship Guru / Author

Traveling entrepreneurs, Drs. Rob + Janelle Alex, Ph.D. are mentoring entrepreneurs and authors around the world. As best selling authors, speakers, marketing and branding experts their podcast Authors Talk About It (soon to be rebranded as Creative Author Marketing) has become quite popular. They’re new adventures have led them to rebrand overall and set Mission Date Night on the back burner – though the MDN podcast was  very popular, too!  Together, Rob and Janelle, have authored over 125 books including the Mission Date Night Adventures, the Sexy Challenges series (and newly released, Sexy Challenges 33 Adventures: Create Powerful Energy with Passion, Purpose and Love), the Intimate Adventures series, Collaborate with Your Soul, Richer Together: Secrets to Working, Living and Loving Side-by-Side, the Full Moon Approaches, Speaking Kind Words and more.  They are currently working on a new fiction – it’ll be their first non-fiction book.   

They offer programs, workshops and private mentoring focused on creative marketing and powerful branding, so that entrepreneurs and authors can get their message out into the world in a bigger way while having a ton of fun doing it.       

Their youngest son, Boegley is traveling along with them and studying as a worldschooler.  Their two older sons, Reggie and Anthony, are grown and have spread their wings on their own journeys.

Dr. Rob Alex, Ph.D. is brilliant at coming up with outside-the-box ideas.  He is currently creating fantastic courses available on Udemy around creative marketing and  relationships.  It’s fascinating how the relationship skills he teaches to couples crosses over to authors and entrepreneurs with their relationships to clients and fans/readers.  He had a spiritual awakening in 2010, which happened due to transcendent lovemaking experiences.  This encouraged him to bring more spiritual perspectives into his work – metaphysical concepts alongside practical ideas. He teaches how to use ancient wisdom to expand your thinking while creating more personal life energy and how to direct that energy to develop amazing relationships (personally and professionally) and live the life of your dreams.

He studied business and human sexuality at Penn State University. His Bachelor of Metaphysics, Master of Metaphysical Sciences, and Ph.D. in Transpersonal Counseling were earned from the University of Metaphysical Sciences. His dissertation was Orgasmic Laughter: Sex and Humor are Unexpected Portals to the Universe.


While Dr. Janelle Alex, Ph.D. uses a blend of body consciousness, spiritual psychology, transpersonal counseling, animal energy and spiritual connection, she also uses very practical and down-to-earth approaches to help women entrepreneurs create leverage with their books (and in their businesses) so they can streamline their time and have thriving relationships, be fantastic moms and have fabulous success in their careers.  She has spent the past 26 years helping others connect to their creative energy – their life force energy. She teaches how to integrate unique and practical tools to traverse the journey of relationship with yourself, your brand and your book.  She’s a master at helping you create a book marketing plan that fits your brand and fits YOU.

She graduated summa cum laude from St. Mary-of-the-Woods College with a B.S. in Psychology and a minor in Criminology. Her graduate degrees include a Master of Arts in Transpersonal Psychology from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology (now Sofia University), Masters in Metaphysical Sciences from the University of Metaphysics and her Ph.D. in Transpersonal Counseling from the University of Sedona. Her dissertation was Sacred Intimacy: Transforming Your Life Through Sacred Relationship.
