Alain Washnevsky was born in Iran and raised in Vienna, Austria to Iranian born parents. Early in life, his future as a professional communicator across several different mediums was already manifesting. As a child, he used to talk so much people would pay him to shut up. Today it's the opposite, he gets paid to speak. However, the full manifestation of this gift would not come to fruition for Alain until the age of 33.
Alain enjoyed a successful real estate career in Vienna. At 33, and in the prime of his career, he felt empty. What he identifies as his inner spirit pulled him in a different direction, and trusting on that intuition he followed.
