On today’s episode, Trey sits down with Alex Lieberman, the co-founder and CEO of the wildly popular email newsletter company, Morning Brew. Alex comes from a family with a career history in finance, but set out on his own to pursue Morning Brew, and recently sold it to Business Insider for $75 million dollars. If you want to invest like Warren Buffett, you have to become a student of business, and you do that by diving deep into successful companies to see what their secret sauce is. That’s what today’s episode with Alex is about.
