Alexander Van Buren is a business owner, entrepreneur and business coach based in Dallas, Texas.
He has been a business owner and entrepreneur for more than 30 years.
Alexander’s unique combination of business savvy and NLP behavioral modeling make him a veritable goldmine of resources and techniques for business owners, executives, and entrepreneurs.
After spending 2 years learning how to ‘model something’ with NLP, Alexander conducted his first behavioral modeling project in 1997. 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 200 original patterns of excellence and models.
Applying what he’d learned from his modeling projects, he decided to grow one of his companies in April of 2008, right at the start of the economic recession. The business grew 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. The passive income from his business-turned-asset made him financially free.
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 sales people 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 numerous 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.

“I would recommend this class to everyone, there is something for everyone.”
“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.”
“I completed my certification last July 2013 and during the class, I received comprehensive training.
It is one of the best training I’ve ever received in my career life. I highly recommend it to everyone who is serving the community: non-profit, for-profit, community-based organization, academia, etc. Also, it is good training for those who want to continuously evolve in their life,i.e.. undergoing self-transformation to become better from what they were before or those who are planning to dive into a new career. The NLP & Coaching Institute of Colorado is a great institute to be connected with.”

“This workshop was amazing. I received the entire structure of how to create a successful coaching business. Alexander is a seasoned, passionate and highly successful coach and businessman. Incredible value.”
“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!
