Alex Charfen was never meant to be the Co-founder & CEO of a multi-million dollar company. As a kid, Alex had a tough time learning, fitting in, and following other people’s rules. His
entrepreneurial journey started early on by selling things at school, and he went on to run a window washing service in high school and a financial consulting firm in college.
In his twenties, Alex became a Fortune 500 consultant, working with some of the most successful people in the world. In his early thirties, he met his wife, Cadey, and sold his consulting business. Unable to stay out of the entrepreneurial world, Alex and Cadey started buying and selling houses and become one of the largest real estate companies in Florida in less than a year. Following the
Economic Crisis of 2007, Alex and Cadey lost everything and went bankrupt. Rising from the ashes, they built an information product called the Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE)
Through their designation, Alex and Cadey worked with the majority of major lenders and real estate brokerages in the United States to help our country recover from the mortgage crisis. As a result, they helped pull forward the recovery of the foreclosure crisis by five to seven years, sold over $70 million, were featured on the Inc. list of fastest-growing companies in the country three years in a row, and won many other awards.
From broke jazz musician to $100 million in online sales… Jeff Lerner’s story and social media content have inspired millions to get control of their future and reshape their life around his "3 Ps of Success" (Physical, Personal, & Professional).
After a decade of building multiple businesses to over 8 figures and landing multiple times on the INC 5000 Jeff turned his focus to building the world’s first institute of higher learning exclusively for entrepreneurs. In 2019 he founded ENTRE Institute, the fastest growing education company in the world, where over 200,000 students have studied how to grow a business.
In 2021 Jeff set his sights on solving one of his students’ biggest pain points and launched Entresoft which fast became one of the most popular small business software suites on the Internet.
Jeff is also an active real estate investor with a personal portfolio nearing 8 figures.
Jeff’s interest in entrepreneurship began in his 20s when as a pianist he was often hired to play in the homes of successful CEOs and business owners. In 2008, at age 29, after multiple failed ventures including a restaurant franchise that left him with a half million dollars in debt, he found his first success online and paid off the debt in 18 months.
He currently maintains an active schedule of speaking events and media appearances while working day-to-day in ENTRE, hosting a top 100 business podcast, growing his YouTube channel, and working on his first full-length book “Escaping The Broken System” which is scheduled for publication by BenBella Books in Spring 2022.
He is married, an active father to 4 children, and still enjoys playing the piano 1 hour per day…

So glad I found this show. Steve does a great job of interviewing first rate guest. He does an amazing job of putting his guest at ease and keeping the conversation flowing. As a fellow podcaster of an interview based podcast I realize what a tough thing this is to do. Well done!!
Make It Happen!
I discovered this show after I heard Steve on another podcast where I literally found myself asking, "Who IS this guy!? I need to hear more!" I was super stoked to find that his own podcast had the same incredible energy! No matter the topic, I learn so much from every single conversation. Trust me - you don't want to miss it!
very good podcast
