How do we build a world where everyone can feel financial empowerment? Vlad talks with Alexa Von Tobel about what it takes. In this episode, Vlad meets Alexa Von Tobel, founder of financial planning site LearnVest and managing partner of Inspired Capital. During her time at Harvard, Alexa worked in the Happiness Lab, where she disovered that life is full of regrets for the things you do, and don't do, which made her determined to avoid regret at all costs. In her first job at Morgan Stanley, she quickly realized her own lack of knowledge in the space of finance, and the few resources out there for women to learn about financial strength. This inspired Alexa to return to Harvard and develop a business plan to change that—which would eventually become LearnVest. In this interview, we learn about the resilience it takes to build a company and live a life without regrets, as well as the importance of financial empowerment for everyone, regardless of gender or age.
