Quote from Alexandra Kerr

"Working in financial media, we get to ask some of the country's most successful investors and entrepreneurs for advice. We get to enter rooms that take most people 20 years and two degrees to walk through. As an investor myself, it still feels unreal that we get access to that kind of knowledge and experience, and our readers get to share that with us."
