EP 1 | A-ROD
The guest today is Alex Rodriguez or A-Rod, if you'd like to call him that. He is quite the businessman now. And, of course, still the baseball legend. But something tells me people are going to remember him for his business sense and his successes off the field. And so we talked a lot about business. We talked about how A-Rod Corp started in 2003 and we talked about the trajectory of that and what he's done and where it's going. And we also talked about some of the transitional times in his life that weren't so easy. I hope you like it.
Best known for his unparalleled accomplishments on the baseball field, Alex Rodriguez stands as one of the best known athletes in the world. Through the course of his 22-year career, Alex Rodriguez hit an extraordinary 696 home runs, has hit more grand slams than any person in history, and is one of only 29 players to join the 3,000 hit club. Alex Rodriguez is a 3-time MVP, a 14-time all-star, and a 2009 World Series Champion with the New York Yankees.
Over the course of his iconic baseball career, Mr. Rodriguez also built a tremendously successful investment firm with the purchase of a single duplex in 2003. Today, A-Rod Corp is a fully integrated investment firm, led by Alex Rodriguez and a team of seasoned investment professionals, that manages both internal and external capital and employs more than 500 people.
Mr. Rodriguez also maintains an active sports, television, and media presence. He currently serves as a special advisor to Hal Steinbrenner, co-chairman of the New York Yankees. In addition, Mr. Rodriguez is currently signed with three major television networks, including Fox, ABC, and CNBC.
