Has anything happened in your life that rocked you to the core and dramatically changed how you view everything? In this episode, Alan Lazaros joins host Ian Lobas to present his outlook on life and the choices that impact every single thing around it.

After being involved in a nearly fatal car accident, Alan questioned everything. His father passed away in a car accident at age 28 when he was only 2. This really shook him up... He asked himself, “Did I live a life true to myself? How courageously did I fight for what I believe in? How fiercely did I love?” Not liking his answers, he decided to change forever. Today, Alan’s a professional speaker, business coach and consultant, and the host of The Next Level University Podcast.

Between speaking, podcasting, coaching and consulting, Alan's invested thousands of hours inspiring, motivating and educating others on how to become more successful on their own terms. Alan believes life's about choices. He grew up hearing stories about his father, and he can tell you from experience that how you die isn’t going to matter. What matters is how you choose to live.
