INSTRUCTOR BACKGROUND: ALEX GENADINIK

My business plan book 'How To Write A Business Plan' is consistently the top business plan book on Amazon. My book is used by a number of universities and high schools in business class curriculums and entrepreneurship centers. I regularly get invited by these institutions to give talks about starting a business to aspiring entrepreneurs.

I've been an entrepreneur for 20 years, have personally coached over 1,000 entrepreneurs, taught business topics to 150,000 students and helped millions of entrepreneurs worldwide to create 6 and 7-figure businesses in the process, and I can help you too.

Imagine how much better and easier your road to success will be, and how much more you can achieve with an experienced mentor.

WHY THIS BUSINESS COURSE IS UNIQUE

There is a unique story behind this course. I originally created the Problemio business apps which now have over 1,000,000 entrepreneurs who downloaded the apps. On the apps, entrepreneurs were able to ask business questions. I took all the questions that were ever asked on the apps, and summed them up into the issues covered in this course. That means that the business issues covered in the course come from entrepreneurs just like you! 

So if you are starting a new business, this is a great way to guarantee that the material in the course will be very relevant to the things you are going through now, or things you will be going through soon during your entrepreneurship journey.

Meet your instructor!

Alex Genadinik
Business coach, teaching business, entrepreneurship,
SEO marketing, eCommerce


3-time best selling Amazon author with some of my books used in universities and high schools across the country.

  • 10+ years in entrepreneurship
  • 10+ years in SEO and marketing
  • Coached over 1,000 entrepreneurs


When you enroll in my courses, you get:

  • Personal care and attention: I host regular office hours for my students and reply to 99% of student questions within 24 hours and my goal is to reply within 1 hour.
  • Instructor with deep expertise, proven success and knowledge that is both theoretical and practical.


I care deeply about student success, and I am committed to it. I go out of my way to help students in my courses succeed at whatever they are working on, whether it is planning, starting or growing your business.

More about me:

I am also the creator of top entrepreneur mobile apps with 2,000,000+ downloads,  host of a popular business and marketing channel on YouTube with 2,000,000+ views, successful affiliate marketer, serial entrepreneur in many other fields.

I have a BS in Computer Science from SJSU, and after working as a software engineer, I wanted to take a bigger role in the businesses I worked in, and that is how I got into business and marketing.  Today, I am one of the top online marketers and a successful entrepreneur.

What I am interested in now when it comes to business:

Personally, I am a personal productivity and emotional intelligence geek. I geek out on things like motivation, building healthy habits and creativity.

Some of my own favorite topics that I teach:

I have seen any of my students succeed in Amazon eCommerce. Selling on Amazon can be very lucrative and I love seeing my students do well.

I also teach many SEO topics that I myself use all the time. They include link-building, keyword research and using other sites like YouTube, Amazon, and even freelancing sites like Fiverr as search engines to get discovered when people are searching.

My interests outside business and entrepreneurship:

I like playing soccer, chess, dabbling in philosophy, lots of different music (one of my dreams is to start writing songs and poetry for them), and I am always daydreaming of finally getting a dog (a rescue from a shelter, of course). I am also trying to become vegan, albeit with moderate success so far.
