Instructor Biography

Alex Addo, Entrepreneur, Performance Marketer and Top Instructor

Hi, I am Alex!

I am a passionate entrepreneur, performance marketer and one of Udemy's instructors.

Let me tell you my story...

At the age of 26, I completed my masters degree in Finance and landed a great job in a Fortune 500 industry.During that period a travelled a lot to organize trainings. After being a full-time Retail Manager for more than 5 years, I decided to shift gears and founded my first online company where i would use my skills to build companies.

Ever since, I was lucky enough to do what I love the most: entrepreneurship, travelling the world, pushing my comfort zone and discovering things that I couldn't learn in the classroom.

I decided to take the next step and share my knowledge with those who are ready to start their own business. This decision brought me to Udemy, were I am able to combine my biggest talents: entrepreneurship, marketing and teaching.

My teaching philosophy on Udemy is simple: I am crafting trainings that I wish I had when I started my first company.

My courses serve a very important goal: helping you to transform your life and becoming a successful entrepreneur and marketer.

I've seen the impact a solid business can have on someone's life. That's why I can only encourage you not to miss out on this opportunity.

By today, I've sold more trainings, established multiple successful online businesses and coached hundreds of students.

So, that's my story. But now, I just want to ask you a simple question.

Do you want some help?

Do you want to establish your own business, become an entrepreneur or simply generate more revenue from your current business?

Great, because I might be able to help you. Feel free to check out my course portfolio and let's see if we can work together.

Best Regards,

Alex Addo
