Cory Briggs (@CoBriggs12) graduated from Harvard in 2014 with a degree in Sociology. At college, Cory played for the Harvard Football team, wining the Ivey League Championship in 2011 and 2013. Also during college, Cory worked inside the NFL Cleveland Browns back office – an ultra competitive position, especially for a college student.

Immediately after college, Cory scored a position as an assistant football coach with Tufts University – again, an ultra competitive position. Today, Cory helps to manage a multi-million real estate investment portfolio.

In this episode, Cory and I discuss:

  • Why dropping the “H-Bomb” represents every reason why students should attend an Elite College,
  • How to network with influencers, such as Facebook’s co-founder, Eduardo Saverin, and
  • How to use email to effectively connect with anyone.

Cory’s “tweetable” advice: “Follow your passion to happiness, don’t follow the paycheck.”
