Origin Story


Alex Chung is a believer, husband and father. He must write, read and be kinetic. In Alex’s pursuit of the old American Dream, he felt called to vocations such as Silicon Valley venture capital attorney, Midwest economic developer and Bay Area corporate executive. He rediscovered his truest self as an author and entrepreneur but continues to view himself as a perpetual work in progress. Guided by faith, the philosophy of Eudaimonism and equipped with personal magnetism, Alex pursues life, liberty and happiness at the highest levels.

He lives with and for his wife, Colette, and together they created a baby boy they named happy and blessed, because the boy made them so. And somewhere out there, in the old American South, they are living a new kind of dream.

He wrote his first book, Highest Success, available now at leading book retailers including Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
