Listen in as James and I discuss how to pick yourself up in the face of failure, what success means, choosing yourself, crying, amazing ideas that changed the world that you thought were lame, how to step back and trust yourself and know that things will work out most of the time.
James also shares about the freedom of getting rid of his belongings and only traveling with a backpack and one small bag with 15 things…….. living in VRBO’s or Air BNB’s…..and the fact that he can follow the sun this winter if he wants to.
James Altucher has started and ran more than 20 companies and is currently an investor in and advisor to over 30, but at one point, James lost everything. In a matter of months, his account drained from $15 million to $143. Depressed and on the floor, James realized today’s standard view of success comes with conditions and the only effective way to be successful is to “choose yourself.”
Now, James Altucher is a successful entrepreneur, angel investor, chess master and The Wall Street Journal bestselling author of “Choose Yourself.” You can find his best and most controversial advice in The Altucher Report, which provides you with James’ personal research in business, finance and entrepreneurship.
As the host of The James Altucher Show, a leading business podcast, James introduces you to his network of choose yourselfers — successful entrepreneurs, billionaires, best-selling authors, writers, rappers, astronauts and more, all who forged their own paths, found financial freedom, and harnessed the power to create meaningful and fulfilling lives.
