Alexa von Tobel
CEO & Founder Purchasing the laptop that I started LearnVest with!
Chief Operations Officer & Chief Financial Officer Buying Apple stock five years ago.
Chief Marketing and Product OfficerAnything involving making my kids smarter about the world (which includes taking some great trips).
Editor in ChiefA dream trip to the Middle East. It was expensive, but we did “high-low” travel: A stay in a real-life Bedouin camp, followed by one night at a swish resort by the Dead Sea. The whole trip was unforgettable, in particular because it’s where—on top of a rock in the ancient ruins in Petra—I got engaged.
Chief Technology OfficerMassive Attack concert in 2010, despite the bad acoustics at the venue. It was a sublime experience.
VP of Advertising SalesI changed all of the light fixtures, face plates and door knobs in my apartment (which my husband and I rent). A small investment, but it makes a huge impact on how I feel about the space.
VP of Business DevelopmentPaying a street vendor $5 to serve my friend rotten shark meat (or hákarl) in a game of ‘I buy it, you eat it’ on the streets of Reykjavik, Iceland.
