Alex Rodriguez had a 25-year professional baseball career,
highlighted by appearing in 14 MLB All-Star Games, winning the 2009
World Series Championship as a member of the New York Yankees, and
hitting 696 home runs including more grand slams than any other
player in history.
He is also is the Chairman and CEO of A-Rod Corp, an
investment holding company he started at age 20 in 1995

Minnesota Timberwolves basketball team.
Our conversation covers Alex’s early interest in business,
lessons he learned from Warren Buffett, Magic Johnson, and Greg
Norman, the strategy of A-Rod Corp, time management, leadership,
and identification of partners. We then turn to his investment
activities in real estate, the Slam Corp SPAC, venture capital, and
the Minnesota Timberwolves, and we close discussing Alex’s
reflections on his year-long suspension from baseball in 2014 and
the future of A-Rod Corp.
