Come to the edge.
We might fall.
Come to the edge
It’s too high!
COME TO THE EDGE!
And they came,
and he pushed,
and they flew.
– Christopher Logue
Hello, I’m Alexander Baranov.
I engage in life-altering conversations with successful people who want to step beyond their current reality to achieve their most daring goals.
What do you really want?
You want more.
You have come a long way, success is your middle name—but it’s not enough. You are not done yet. You can do so much more. You are passionate, zestful, unstoppable. What’s next on the menu?
You want undivided attention.
You have a friend, a family, a lover, a team, an empire—but it’s not enough. You feel you still need someone to talk to. A partner? A mentor? Yes and no. You need someone who will meet you in your fear and courage, someone who believes in you unconditionally. No judging, no interrupting. Someone who creates a space for you to fantasize, strategize, experiment.
You want to be you.
You know your name but you hardly know the person behind the name. It’s not enough. What do you truly love? What is really important to you? What is your deepest desire? You are so much more than your name but it takes a deep change to realize it.
How can I support you?

What does it feel like to work with me?
It feels like having a true friend.
I believe in full contact with the client. I take your dreams and your pain close to the chest. I make it my own. I apply my entire life experience, my teachings, and my vision to the task. I seek answers in my dreams or turn to my intuition. This is not strictly a coach-client relationship. It is a trusting partnership when we engage in the project of your dream together.
It feels like stepping off a cliff.
Do you know that feeling? Have you ever tried doing something beyond your comfort zone? Well, you definitely will once we start working together. There is no reward without sacrifice. There is no pleasure without pain. The change does not happen in the safety zone. The change lives in the unknown and we will go there together.
It is not just a conversation. It is an expedition into the beautiful landscape of your being. Beyond your upbringing, beyond your convictions, beyond your personality. It can be emotional and challenging, but it is by all means rewarding. And the reward is your life fully lived.
It feels like trying on a superhero suit.
From the beginning to the end, it is all about you. You have the gift, you have the drive, you have the power. I only guide you to it. There is nothing wrong with you, there is nothing to be fixed. You have what it takes to bring yourself to your greatness. Once you recognize it, miracles happen. Power is unlimited. The impossible is within reach.
How do we work together?
Our engagement may last anytime from six months to a year. Together, we will determine the length and frequency of our meetings. I find it most effective for my clients to meet three times a month for a deep 90-minute session in-person, by Skype, or by phone and to keep in touch in between by email.
For the term of engagement we commit to our relationship “for better or for worse.” The outcome of coaching will be as strong as the energy we put into the relationship. I will require your honesty, openness, desire to change, desire to learn, and willingness to challenge yourself, and I will invest the same. As such, I will also require your financial commitment, full prepayment with no refunds. Equally, I offer my full commitment with no turning back once we begin.
Where do we start?
We sit down and talk. We start with a full free coaching session just like a paying client receives. You will get a feel for how I work and can decide if you would like to move into a coaching relationship. I will be looking for the same clues. After all, it takes two to tango! Then we agree on a schedule, payment, and place. Voila!
Sounds like something you want to try? Let’s talk
