Alex Jeffreys Coaching Program – Forward to Basics
I was recently one of 500 lucky people to become a member of Alex Jeffreys coaching program. We actually call ourselves “The Fortunate 500”. Alex Jeffreys is a protege “Alex Kime of Mike Filsaime’s and after beginning an increasingly successful on line business, he is now under the tutelage of business coach Rich Schefren.
