A Different Kind Of Small Business Coach

Small Business Coach

What makes Alexander different from other small business coaches?

His coaching process is a combination of:

A proprietary coaching process
This elegant process will help you change longstanding beliefs, assumptions,
and patterns that have been holding you back from greater accomplishment.
Most of these patterns are outside your conscious awareness – which is why
they are so limiting.

It will also offer you new, more resourceful (modeled) patterns to consider
using instead. The process creates an unusually fluid state of entrepreneurial
momentum. The result is a continual experience of breakthroughs and
quantum leaps


A set of patterns, interventions, and strategies he’s modeled
These patterns will give you a significant competitive advantage.
More than 170 unique strategies that world-class salespeople, managers,
CEOs, and athletes have used and have been proven highly effective.

The problem with using best practices is that all your competitors are using
them too.

Modeled patterns are a thousand times more powerful than best practices.


 Handouts and curriculum modules from his seminar company
Complete modules on time management, negotiation skills, communication
skills and many more create an abundance of resources when and where
they are needed.

Alexander will hand-pick certain modules that will be of special value to you
and your company. This gives you access to dozens of high-quality
insights and skill building when and where you need it most.

Background, Experience & Coaching History

Small Business Coach

Alexander became a certified Master Practitioner in NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming) in May of 1997.  He has trained directly with many of the most prominent figures in NLP including Richard Bandler. He then began a 5-year project to become skilled at an advanced aspect of NLP known as Behavioral Modeling.

After spending 2 years learning how to ‘model something’ with NLP, Alexander conducted his first behavioral modeling project in 1997.

See The 7 Steps of Behavioral Modeling and Behavioral Modeling Projects for details.

Determined to elicit the structure of creativity in detail, he read Leonardo da Vinci’s notebooks every single day for two years while eliciting Walt Disney’s actual creative process and studying Peter Drucker’s concepts on innovation.

The project loosed a flood of creative ideas. He has conducted formal ongoing behavioral modeling projects ever since. Over the next several years he elicited and created over 170 original patterns of excellence and models.

He’s modeled the comeback strategy of tennis legend Andre Agassi, the delegating system of a senior executive at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the mental game patterns of Navy Seals and world-class athletes, the extreme productivity secrets of billionaire entrepreneurs, and dozens more.

Applying what he’d learned from his modeling projects, he decided to start a business in April of 2008, the day after the stock market crashed at the start of the economic recession. The business grew rapidly from a dining room table to five employees in less than 2 years. He then leveraged out of the company by automating all its processes.

Alexander has been a featured presenter at the Stanford Executive Program Graduate School of Business at Stanford University.

In 2002 he was hired by the Bluegreen Land & Golf Corporation to behaviorally model their top salespeople and referral-getters. Some of their salespeople went on to earn over a million dollars a year in take-home commission for the first time in the company’s history.

In 2014 he was retained to model senior investment bankers for George K. Baum & Company and teach the model to a group of hand-picked, up-and-coming investment bankers.

His clients include hundreds of small business owners and entrepreneurs and larger companies including Toshiba, Humana, Polte/Del Web, Bluegreen Land & Golf Corporation, The Army Corps of Engineers, The Nevada Regional Transportation Commission, Paramount Home Entertainment, Sinclaire Broadcasting – CWTV, Arrow Electronics, The Iowa National Guard, Safelite Auto Glass and hundreds more.

Van Buren is the author of This One Thing, and Mastering The Mental Game. His 3rd book will be released in 2023 and contains dozens of patterns he’s modeled from world-class CEOs, athletes, entrepreneurs, salespeople, and managers along with many original models and patterns.

“When I first met you I was $17,000 in the red. Within a few years of working with you and your strategies, I am having my first 7-figure year. Your coaching has been incredibly valuable.”

Dan J.



Business Coaching
“I made $40,000 in the first month from one of the up-sell techniques you taught me. And I’ve added a quarter of a million dollars to my yearly income. And I took my wife to France and we hung out with the Tour-De-France cyclists, so I guess that qualifies as the lifestyle piece. That’s why I’ve come back for more coaching with you!”

Dr. Chris Pellow, Pellow Family Chiropractic



Business Coaching
“Not only did Alexander do a phenomenal job in teaching me many concepts that will greatly improve my business, but he went beyond helping me with my business into teaching me how to thrive in my life balance as well. He made sure I understood to balance everything important to me, such as making time for my health, family, and leisure time, so that I could be more balanced in my life and not stressed out with overworking myself with my business. He inspired me to take many actions to improve both my business and the quality of my life that I would have been ignorant or hesitant to take otherwise. His program was a real life-changer for me. I wholeheartedly recommend him.”

Sue P., New Business Owner



Business Coaching
“Alexander has been a huge help in getting me started the right way. His techniques have already got me significant bookings that have far exceeded my goals. I purchased his coaching package three times in a row because it paid for itself every time I did it. His attention to detail in all aspects: from intricate speech writing to advanced marketing, these are exactly the insights for which I was looking. With so much more to learn, I know I’m in the right place.”

Steve Sax, World Champion Baseball Player & Motivational Speaker

I changed my diet, and exercise which I never did before, and I can see the results in my daily routine and my energy level. I highly recommend you to anyone who wants to improve their professional or personal life.

Thanks again for teaching me to be a better manager, husband, father, and friend.”

Business Coaching for Startups And Small Business Owners

Alex, you not only energized the group with your insights on the creative process and approaching problem areas, but you also changed our whole way of viewing our business.

Your practical approach to problem-solving from the general to the specific will serve us all for many years to come.”
