Alex Morton is a high-profile entrepreneur, book author, and motivational speaker. He also bills himself as a “growth catalyst” and a “momentum creator”, which are probably just some fancy titles to give but don’t really make sense. You probably have seen him on various entrepreneurial events, hanging out with the likes of Grant Cardone, Gary Vee, Tai Lopez, Bob Proctor, and even others. And what do all of them have in common? For better or worse, they’re all high-successful entrepreneurs. Which further adds to the image of Alex Morton himself as someone who’s also highly successful on his business ventures. The question is, how successful, and is he someone to look up to?

“I teach people around the world how to be, do, and have anything they desire.” This phrase is the tagline that Alex frequently uses to describe himself as a financial guru. As successful as he may seem to be, he claims that’s he’s not really that special. When he was young, he’s basically living a rather bland and normal life, just like you and me. He attended high school, entered a normal college school, and aspired to graduate.
It all changed one day, and of all times, while he was having his supper. Simply put, the campus security decided to kick him out of his room. As he described it, his rather laid-back approach to school is finally catching up on him. And just like that, he’s homeless. He didn’t even bother to call his family or friends for any kind of help because he’s too ashamed to do it. As he pointed out, that was the lowest point of his life.
But it was also back then that, in the end, the only person that could get him out of that predicament, was none other than himself. He can’t just stay down forever. He have to do something about it. And that’s when he began to self-study various “secrets to success“. He has read various books, joined various masterminds, and most likely attended various seminars. And soon enough, what was once a homeless individual has now become one of the so-called millionaire entrepreneurs of today.
It’s all very impressive at first glance. If not for the fact that most of his business ventures are actually MLMs.
His first venture into MLMs was Vemma, which has been shut down in 2015 for its deceptive and misleading practices, and of course, for being a pyramid scheme. Naturally, Alex and his subordinates (or downlines) bore the brunt of the blame. After all, they’re the ones who promoted it. But he never learned from this.
After the fiasco that happened with Vemma, Alex, naturally, decided to lay low for quite some time. When he realized that plenty of people have forgotten about his scummy deeds, he sprung up back again in an attempt to seemingly get rich by deceiving people. He joined iMarketsLive, a multilevel marketing firm that sells Forex learning academies. Not long after that, he rose through its ranks in order to become an executive chairman, which is strong proof of his marketing performance within the company.
Since that is another MLM though, it will also definitely collapse at some point. It may not be today, but it will in due time.
Alex seems to be enjoying the high life, living the affluent lifestyle he dedicated his life to. It looks like he earns around $10 million every year just from iMarketsLive (now IM Mastery Academy). Along with that, he is also earning some decent money from the sales of his books, mentorships, speaking engagements, digital goods, investments, and other income streams.
It looks like his net worth is estimated to be about $25 million. However, as impressive as it may sound, it is just disheartening to know that most of that was from the expense of people who fell victim to pyramid schemes he promoted. The fact that he’s been hanging around with people who have a questionable reputation as entrepreneurs, despite billing themselves as motivational speakers, may also further cement that possibility. After all, birds of the same feather, flock together, right?
It’s sad to think, though. Alex has all the skills of a good entrepreneur. He has the looks and the smarts to be successful in anything he does. Yet he chose to be an individual with questionable morals.
