Ecommerce Influence - Jason Moser Motley Fool

I have a fascinating episode for you today. This week, Andrew Foxwell sat down with Jason Moser, a senior analyst for the Motley Fool investment research team.

You might be wondering why we are interviewing someone who helps people pick stocks for a living. It turns out, Jason’s whole job at the Motley Fool is to research and analyze companies in the ecommerce sector and learn how they are innovating.

This is a big picture episode and they talk about a whole bunch of things. Andrew and Jason get into talking about Wayfair and Amazon. They also talk about the state of ecommerce, Shopify, Facebook, Instagram, and a bunch of other things. I think you’ll really like this episode and I look forward to hearing your feedback on it. Enjoy!
