I went to sleep one day… and woke up gasping for air – Morning Brew Co-Founder Alex Lieberman

Being a Founder takes its toll on you – even if it looks like everything is rosy from the outside.
Today we’re learning from Alex Lieberman, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of Morning Brew, which became a darling in the media industry because it actually became commercially successful.
But whilst everyone else was applauding the company’s success, for Alex at least, he was trying to cope with anxiety and panic attacks.
The company sold late last year to Insider Inc (of Business Insider) for $75 million which means Alex doesn’t need to worry about money any more. But he does need to worry about the best way to use his time and freedom.
He used to think chasing your passions was bullshit, but now he’s not so sure.
Find out why Alex wants to be more like Benjamin Button and how you can make your life more meaningful.
