Every Hour is Important to Alexei Orlov

Alexie Orlov sleeps four hours a night; no more and no less than four hours every single night. That is the max amount of rest that he needs to feel rejuvenated from the trials of yesterday and adequately rested and prepared for the coming day ahead. Orlov’s career has seen dynamic entrepreneurial progression, global branding and marketing successes, facilitation of a financial about-face for a withering organization, even the creation of multiple multi-million-dollar-making businesses. All of his successes stretch across multiple companies and countries, even continents, yet Alexie Orlov believes they are not a result of any God-given genius or talent he owns. Orlov says each stems from his determination to wake up earlier than the rest of the world, work four hours longer than the rest of the world, and not stop until he has succeeded.

Orlov may choose to minimize the many achievements that decorate his career; curtailing his expert understanding of professional leadership, but those that work with Alexei and the team at MTM are well aware of his gifts. Whether it be from an operational management standpoint or a creative branding and marketing angle, professionals that get to work with the MTM founder are certain of one thing: Alexei Orlov knows what it takes to lead.

Many people believe that leaders are born, many others believe they are fashioned, with epic resilience, from their trials in life. For Alexei Orlov, leadership and its many traits may have been gifted to him from the beginning, but life also produced opportunities that the globally-renowned lifelong entrepreneur seized upon to stand where he stands today.
