ALFONSO CUADRA BIOGRAPHY

Alfonso Cuadra is an entrepreneur, speaker, author, success coach, philanthropist, and entrepreneur of 15 years. At 18 years old, he started a small company that grew to 15 locations across Canada. Born in the late seventies in El Salvador, a country on the road to revolution, Alfonso Cuadra and his family couldn’t avoid the turmoil surrounding them. His mother was the head of a newspaper that remained committed to reporting the truth to all about the corrupt government in power. For that, she was arrested as a political prisoner and sentenced to forty years. Alfonso’s family kept him indoors for the first three years of her incarceration for fear that the government would kidnap him. Thanks to an Amnesty Law declared in May of 1983, his mom, Vida Cuadra, was freed and offered asylum in Canada.

Alfonso Cuadra and his family struggled even though they were now safe in Canada. Coming into a new country as an immigrant, he recalls feeling as though he was “very low on the economic scale”. Growing up, he was surrounded by crime and drugs. As he got older, he created his mantra, his philosophy. “Success By Design” is the idea that we are all creating our lives and moments through every decision we make. At 17, he became a father to a beautiful little girl who became his turning point; during that time he started a clothing business that quickly became successful, and within a few years, he expanded it across Canada.

By age 21, he realized the value of the real estate and purchased his first multi-unit income property. Alfonso Cuadra has been exposed to various commercial, residential, and multi-family property investments and management deals. Alfonso Cuadra has been featured for his business in many magazines, newspapers, and television worldwide, including Readers Digest, which did a 7-page profile published in 15 different countries in 5 other languages In 2009. Since then, he has secured a healthy real estate portfolio while maintaining his companies. Alfonso is a dynamic leader known for thinking outside the box as he shares his passion through his lectures, workshops, books, TV show, and coaching.
