Nicole Lapin, known for being the youngest anchor ever at CNN and then going on to claim the same title at CNBC – where she anchored "Worldwide Exchange" and contributed to "Morning Joe" and "The Today Show" – joins James on today's special edition of Ask Altucher.
Nobody handed Nicole anything. She's worked her butt off since she was 15.
She started in Kentucky, then South Dakota and on to Palm Springs while still finishing her college degree.
She finally got a 4 a.m. time slot on CNBC and immediately fell in love with it.
In Nicole's new book Rich Bitch, she lays out a 12-step plan in which she shares her experiences – mistakes and all – of getting her own finances in order. Money is typically an "off limits" conversation, but nothing is off limits here.
Nicole rethinks every piece of financial "wisdom" you've ever heard and puts her own fresh, modern, sassy spin on it. Sure, there are some hard-and-fast rules about finance, but when it comes to your money, the only person who can tell you how to spend it is you. Should you invest in a 401(k)? Maybe not. Should you splurge on that morning latte? Likely yes.
It's a bit different format today.
I hope you enjoy it.
