This week I'm sharing an interview with Brett Newman, Co-founder and COO of Study Abroad Apartments. I'm a big fan of Brett's and his Co-founder Ryan. After getting to know them over the past year and learning more about their company, their vision, and just getting to talk all thing study abroad and entrepreneurship I know I had to have them on the show. Brett and Ryan are revolutionizing how students find housing while abroad and creating transparency in an element of the experience that has traditionally been shrouded in mystery.
