Juan Alvarez teaches conscious leaders how to gain control over their emotional state so they can lead with intention and peace, bringing trust and prosperity to their organizations. A former executive and entrepreneur of over 20 years, Juan is also a certified professional coach through the Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching. He shares the story of his childhood growing up in Spain, his dream of becoming a guide, and how he achieved that dream in an unexpected way.

What Brett asks:

  • [02:17] Tell me about what your early childhood was like
  • [05:06] What was your father’s background?
  • [10:45] Can you elaborate on your experience of not being accepted?
  • [18:57] Do you think your adversity led to shaping you in a positive way?
  • [21:26] Did you pursue becoming a mountain guide?
  • [23:36] What was going through your mind at 18 years old taking over your father’s business?
  • [34:32] What was your next adventure? How did you make the transition from that life to this life?
  • [45:53] How early in your coaching did you start weaving in meditation?
  • [52:35] What are you learning about yourself, your practice, and your clients during the COVID-19 pandemic?
