About the Guest:

Alan Lazaros is the CEO, Founder, Co-Host & Peak Performance Business Coach at his company. With a powerful combination of technical expertise and business acumen, he is a Business Coach, Consultant, Trainer, and Speaker specializing in helping businesses maximize their growth, impact, and profitability online.

Alan believes in a heart-driven but no BS approach to inspiring, motivating & educating others on what it REALLY takes to get to the next level.

At age 2, Alan's father passed away in a car accident. At age 26, he questioned everything after getting into a nearly fatal car accident himself. It made him question who he was and the choices he was making.

Filled with regret, Alan searched for answers and found two of the brightest lights he’d ever seen. The first was a book by Bronnie Ware called “The Top 5 Regrets of the Dying”, and the second was a Ted Talk by Tony Robbins. Both helped Alan find his way and decide to go ALL IN on self-improvement to design a life of meaning and purpose.

Now it’s Alan's mission to help others design fulfilling lives, maximize their potential, and build aligned businesses they love on their own terms. His primary areas of expertise are Peak Performance, Productivity, Organizational Design, and Individual, Team & Business Optimization.
