This week, Liz is joined by CEO and Founder of Pegasystems Alan Trefler who shares his journey from ordinary suburban kid in Massachusetts to world-renowned chess player by age 19, to now, more than 40 years later, a multi-billionaire dollar software company creator.

Alan details his not-so-glamorous introduction into the business world after turning down admission to Stanford University Business School. He also explains how his father inspired him to be humble, hungry and people smart.
