Alex Lober is a mother of 2 boys and a successful entrepreneur with a background in coaching and training youth at the highest levels of achievement. She has a deep desire for seeing children and young adults discover a better way and develop a thirst for knowledge.
Her personal history growing up gave her an entirely different, powerful perspective that she brings into her current practice embracing the concept that challenge provides opportunity. She has an intimate understanding of internal drive and motivation, knowing what it takes to be on top, and how to achieve it.
She has altruistic views, is a philanthropist and believes that all humanity deserves an equal chance no matter what they have been through or where they have come from.
Alex has always had a passion for writing and drawing, in her early 20's she changed the face of Australian Gymnastics. From scratch she created, wrote (on a typewriter) and hand illustrated the first elite gymnastics training and competition manual ever produced in Australia. In the early 90's the rights to this was bought from her by Gymnastics Australia, and unfortunately she has not used those talents until just recently. She attended a Bob Proctor event in Canada in December 2014, and realised that by writing a children's book, she could help children all around the world ... and that was something she had always wanted to do, but never actually did anything about it.
Alex has now written and co-illustrated a gorgeous children's picture book, called 'Ant's Pants, Bee's Knees & Caterpillar Dreams'. This is no ordinary book!
"This book contains real-life messages that any child can relate to. Children will learn from the characters by imagining what it would be like to be each character; thereby, gaining different perspectives for real-life situations. This book will help them grow as individuals and, broaden their perspectives in life. And, perhaps most importantly, your dialogue will pave the way for them to form a deeper connection with their own identity, creativity and imagination." ~ Bob Proctor, Best selling author, You Were Born Rich
"Ant's Pants, Bee's Knees and Caterpillar Dreams’ is a beautifully written children's book which deals with issues of personal identity. In such a world where being yourself is so difficult, this amazing book gives a whimsical insight into finding your own and coming to terms with the amazing qualities that each 'insect' has to offer. A must read with a great hidden issue that I will be sure to read to my children." ~ Jamie-Leigh Russell – Creative & Performing Arts Teacher and Parent, Sydney, Australia
