Hi! I'm Alonso

A life and business strategist committed to your success. I do this through my job, my podcast, my blog, and one on one interactions.

At a top sales training company, I help my team transform people’s careers by improving their selling and leadership skills. In this blog and podcast, I aim to learn and help others close the gap between where they're and where they want to be.

In 2009, I launched a campaign against deportation under the argument of the DREAM Act—a bill that was introduced to grant conditional residency to undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children and went to school.

I believe that if you want to achieve sustainable peak performance, you must be mindful, balance your energy, and practice what you learn.

Beyond the Surface Podcast™ 

Beyond the Surface is a Seattle-based talk show on personal and professional development that I host monthly.

I meet with local experts and very accomplished professionals from different industries in search of habits, tools, and tactics that my listeners can use to improve their lives and do better work.

Beyond the Surface is the first media program in the Northwest to commit to a 50-50 gender balance for guests.
