Episode 81: Productive Days and Golden Hours, with Alex Nuhiyev

Alex grew up in a poor family where they all lived in a 460 sq ft apartment. Alex began working during summers at the age of 11 for his uncle. At the age of 15, Alex was able to help feed his family, graduated from a University by paying for it all by himself and became the head coach in Arm Wrestling in Azerbaijan. Also, he has traveled the world, married his spouse, and moved to Canada, where they started a family and now have two teenage boys. Alex started True North Labour (TNL) in 2015 and sold four homes to get where he is today. His main goal is to add value to the labor industry and change lives for the better through employment.
