A unique mindset and courage to take risks can take you far. Multimillionaire Alex Becker is proof of that. Despite being young, this man managed to earn real wealth for himself. How did Becker manage to achieve such a huge success? Or is he just another online scammer?
Early life and education
Alex Becker was born on May 24, 1988 in Dallas, Texas, USA. Since most of his information is kept private, it is not known who his parents are or where he went to school. From an early age, Becker was interested in programming and computer science. He also had a good one sense to make money, as he started designing websites when he was still a teenager so that he could earn some pocket money for himself.
In 2007, Becker joined the United States Air Force and served as an aircraft firefighter. He left the Air Force in 2011 so he could focus on a different career path.
Becker briefly worked as a dating coach for online magazines and then became a CEO consultant for a Texas company specializing in advising people on how to grow their own businesses. Becker quickly gained recognition for his work, and some of his clients even included plastic surgeons trying to get more patients and leads.
After earning his first few thousand dollars, Becker launched the search engine optimization (SEO) platform called Konker, launching this project under the leadership of First Wave, the company he founded at the time.
Konker served as an online platform for freelancer advertising, similar to Fiverr or Upwork, but the main difference is that Konker was only a place for experts in the online marketing industry. The platform achieved some success, but this was not enough for Becker, so he later sold it for an amount that was never made public.
Becker used the money from the sale of Konker to open his future projects – most notably, joining forces with SEO experts Stephen Floyd and Gregory Ortiz. The trio founded Source Wave, starting out as a small education and training company that provided courses for people who would be interested in a career in online marketing.
He quickly changed the direction of his brand and focused more on creating SEO software – although a branch of the company called Source Wave University kept its original purpose and served as a comprehensive course that should teach you how to get online earn money using the Private Blog Network (PBN).
In 2015, Becker joined the video streaming platform YouTube, where he started posting videos where he gives people advice to become an online marketing guru – while posing in front of some of his many assets, such as his Ferrari or Lamborghini. This helped bring him closer to the general public, who either loved or hated him for his blunt remarks and outspoken personality – a combination that led some people to claim he was arrogant.
Some of his most popular videos are ‘Does A Ferrari Attract Girls? Picking up girls in Ferrari”, “How I went from broke to Lamborghini” and “Why (as a millionaire) I don’t own anything”. As of 2020, his channel has over 430,000 followers.
Becker was founded in 2016 Market hero, the automation and email analytics application company based in the Fort Worth area. With this he wants to change the way email marketing is done. Market Hero is a Software as a Service (SaaS) company that promotes courses that teach people how to make money by buying or selling products or services online, especially on websites like Shopify.
As of April 2020, Market Hero has over 4,000 active users.
Becker also invested in a nutritional company, Spekter Labs, which makes supplements to improve overall human performance and health. Like Konker, Spekter Labs was sold in 2019 for an undisclosed amount.
At the same time, Becker is the CEO of Hyros, a company focused on obtaining sales data from companies and using advanced marketing tools to improve customer digital marketing performance.
Along with all of these companies, Becker still does one-on-one consulting work while also selling online courses on various business topics. He has his own Shopify training program called H-Com 2020.
Becker is also a successful author. On May 17, 2016, he launched his bestselling USA Today, “The 10 Pillars of Wealth: Mindsets of the World’s Richest People”. With this book he tries to educate people about entrepreneurship and give them advice on how to achieve success. One of the most popular pieces of advice he wrote in the book is, “Don’t waste your time on something that won’t make you money.”
Becker keeps most of his life private, so not much is known about what he does in his spare time.
He is popular on most social media including Instagram and Twitter.
In 2017, he started dating a girl named Rachel, but apart from her name and several pictures that can be found on Becker’s Instagram profile, no details are known about his girlfriend.
He is friends with Hollywood star Harrison Ford, who is known for his roles in feature films such as “Star Wars”, “Indiana Jones” and “The Fugitive”.
There is no evidence that he is related to the famous German botanist Alexander K. Becker, despite the same surname and the similarities in their given names.
Becker is often accused of being a scam, mainly because of his blunt attitude. He has never directly responded to these accusations, instead using his overall success to try and prove otherwise.
According to the information on their official website, Market Hero earns about $5 million annually in revenue. Membership for Source Wave University (SWU) costs up to $67 per month. SWU has an average of about 100 students, which means monthly income is around $6,000. His H-Com 2020 course costs almost $2000!
All told, Becker’s net worth is estimated to be around $15 million as of April 2020.
Alex Becker is 1.70 m tall and weighs about 70 kg. He has short, light brown hair and blue eyes. Many people confuse Becker with Hollywood actor Bradley Cooper because the two have similar facial features.
