A few years ago, I was just another "Actress " from Nigeria, walking red carpets and living so many people’s dreams, having my personal and social life constantly splattered on the pages of gossip magazines and newspapers. But after my failed marriage - I realized that I wasn’t the sensation the media was creating. I had much bigger dreams, but here I was playing small and operating at a half measure of my potential.
In 2013, I went on a personal quest to UNCOVER the truly authentic and naked parts of who I am - it was painful having to STRIP DOWN all the lies and limiting beliefs I held about myself and society's expectations of who I was supposed to be. This is where the NAKED Movement began - The Naked Talk (Radio Show), The Naked Truth (Book), The Naked Challenge (Global Summit), The Naked Boost (Podcast) and The Naked Philosophy all came from.
It all started with a journal - I was hurting and struggling badly with "perfectionism". I started writing to ease my pain, heal my emotional wounds, and share the truth about my reinvention. My self-help blogALEXANDRA N' HER NAKED THOUGHTS - gave me the freedom to EXPRESS all elements of the real ME.
Since starting that blog - I have built a wildly successful radio show interviewing thought leaders and celebrities worldwide. I have written books and created a self-development brand that people trust. Shifting my mindset, perspective, and habits gave me the courage I needed to fix my life and career. I founded a media company, and now, I'm coaching, consulting and supporting people around the world - to reinvent their lives and careers, by stripping down their mental barriers with The NAKED Philosophy™- so they have the FREEDOM to create a personal and professional life they can authentically BRAGabout.
As a Creative - This Is What I've Discovered Over The Years
Everything YouCREATEand Everything You Become Starts in Your Mind
Negative Mindset + No Strategy = Frustration
Limiting Mindset + Creative Strategy = Stagnation
Freedom Mindset + Creative Strategy = Reinvention
It's Time For a Mindset SHIFT. The Truth shall set you FREE.
Well, I believe in Truth; Getting NAKED exposes you to the Truth. Truth leads to Freedom and I believe FREEDOM is the antidote to Fear. That's why I'm on a mission to empower you with the freedom mindset needed to challenge the illusion of perfection. Why? Because your idea of "perfection" is what is limiting you from showing up and playing full out at the highest level of your greatness - but it is also what triggers your biggest resistance - FEAR.
When you think of Freedom, think "Freedom of Expression" - The Full EXPRESSION of who you are with your truth and talents.
Embracing freedom is having an awareness of unlimited possibilities. It is also having the courage to cultivate free-will and free-thinking while embracing everything possible for you, so you can reinvent and manifest your greatness.
Yet many of us cage ourselves with the #1 Self Sabotaging Emotion - FEAR, the fear of being flawed - or not being good enough, the fear of failure, or not meeting societal expectations of us, the fear of NOT being accepted, being judged or misunderstood. And that's where the masks, or 'cover-up' , lies and hiding begin.
Why The NAKED Philosophy
To create the life, you desire - you need the right mindset. Fear inhibitsExpression and because of this, you are probably hiding the best elements of who you are, while operating at a half measure of your authentic best. Ultimately, it is the thoughts you have that instigate your actions and create RESULTS for your vision, goals, or businesses. And for you to EXPRESS your Brilliance - You have to strip down the source of your fear.
Imagine what you could achieve - if you knew you had the freedom to BE anything and e-v-e-r-y-thing you desire.
You may ask. How does Alex Okoroji impact the way people express their greatness and create better results? I do that by empowering my audience and supporting my clients to strip down their mental barriers, SHIFT their perspectives and habits, by embracing a new world of possibilities, a "Freedom Mindset" called - THE NAKED Philosophy™ - so they can express their gifts and talents better- because to be NAKED, is to give yourself the freedom of acceptance - the acceptance of who you are (warts, weaknesses, and flaws), so you can overcome the limitations and beliefs impeding the actualization of your greatest-highest self.
Freedom could be you opening yourself to multiple opportunities. It could be you challenging yourself or stepping out of your comfort zone to try new things. It could be you being bold and fearless in your pursuit of a greater purpose. It could be you embracing your multi-passions and unlimited creativity. Freedom helps you courageously face your challenges, weaknesses, and imperfections because "Perfection" is a myth, an illusion that does not exist.
Stripping down "Naked" (metaphorically) helps you embrace the deepest level of AWARENESS, YOU can experience - with all of your imperfections and truth staring back at you. Yet it is the most liberating experience to feel free and think outside of your limitations - as you intentionally operate without RESTRICTIONS.
It is the freedom of truth - 100% bare, no covers - the truth of what's possible for you and the free-will to actualize your greatness and live the life you desire - on your own terms.
My Reinvention Formula
The NAKED Philosophy™ impacts you at the thought level. It has you "rethink" what you know to be true, what you know to be possible, and what you believe you can ACCOMPLISH - If you give yourself the freedom to strip down all the barriers, boundaries and limiting beliefs, hindering you from taking inspired action.
It is a radical SHIFT in your "consciousness" that dramatically ALTERS your way of thinking, feeling, expressing and understanding your existence in the world - as you uncover your own principles, values, and endless capabilities, so you can improve the impact of what you create with your gifts, skills and talents.
Getting \\NAKED exposes you to your hidden truth, which leads you to Freedom. \\Freedom gives you the courage to Reinvent. \\Reinvention heightens your new way of Expression. \\Expression leads you to your next level of Greatness.

Any election to arbitrate, at any time, shall be final and binding on the other party. IF EITHER PARTY CHOOSES ARBITRATION, NEITHER PARTY SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE SUCH CLAIM IN COURT OR TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL, EXCEPT EITHER PARTY MAY BRING ITS CLAIM IN ITS LOCAL SMALL CLAIMS COURT, IF PERMITTED BY THAT SMALL CLAIMS COURT RULES AND IF WITHIN SUCH COURT’S JURISDICTION. ARBITRATION IS DIFFERENT FROM COURT, AND DISCOVERY AND APPEAL RIGHTS MAY ALSO BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION. All disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator selected jointly by the parties, whose decision will be final, except for a limited right of appeal under the FAA. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted by JAMS pursuant to its then current Comprehensive Arbitration Rules www.adr.org and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those rules,or, where appropriate, pursuant to JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures.

Judgement on the arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. If conducted in person, the arbitration shall take place in the state or local Government where you reside. The parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, to stay a proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgement on the award entered by the arbitrator. The parties shall cooperate in good faith in the voluntary and informal exchange of all non-privileged documents and other information (including electronically stored information) relevant to the Dispute immediately after commencement of the arbitration. As set forth in Section 18 below, nothing in this Agreement will prevent us from seeking injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction as necessary to protect our proprietary interests.
18. Class Action Waiver
You agree that any arbitration or proceeding shall be limited to the Dispute between us and you individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (i) no arbitration or proceeding shall be joined with any other; (ii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated or resolved on a class action-basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (iii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons. YOU AGREE THAT YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST US ONLY IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
19. Equitable Relief
You acknowledge and agree that in the event of a breach or threatened violation of our intellectual property rights and confidential and proprietary information by you, we will suffer irreparable harm and will therefore be entitled to injunctive relief to enforce this Agreement. We may, without waiving any other remedies under this Agreement, seek from any court having jurisdiction any interim, equitable, provisional, or injunctive relief that is necessary to protect our rights and property pending the outcome of the arbitration referenced above. You hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent to the personal and subject matter jurisdiction of the federal and state courts in Lagos, Nigeria for purposes of any such action by us.
Our failure to act on or enforce any provision of the Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of that provision or any other provision in this Agreement. No waiver shall be effective against us unless made in writing, and no such waiver shall be construed as a waiver in any other or subsequent instance. Except as expressly agreed by us and you in writing, this Agreement constitutes the entire Agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter, and supersedes all previous or contemporaneous agreements, whether written or oral, between the parties with respect to the subject matter.
