Meet Alex Banayan
The day before his freshman year final exams, Alex Banayan hacked The Price Is Right, won a sailboat, sold it, and used the prize money to fund his quest to learn from the world’s most successful people. His journey resulted in the bestselling book The Third Door: The Wild Quest to Uncover How the World’s Most Successful People Launched Their Careers. Since then, he has been named to Forbes’ “30 Under 30” list and Business Insider’s “Most Powerful People Under 30.”
