As a young teen, Alex Maroko was an avid basketball player. Through his love for the sport, Alex decided to help other players improve their basketball skills. He began training fellow players in ball-handling, dribbling, and shooting exercises by word of mouth. After graduating high school and playing college basketball, Alex took his personal training business to new heights. Now, he owns The Truth About Quickness, an online basketball training program accessed by thousands of players. Alex never dreamed his love for basketball would turn into a micro business!
