Syndication

For those who are interested, I decided to launch a new monthly newsletter, The Altucher Report.

It's going to be a little more specific and much more tactical than my free blog posts.

It's brand new and I'm selling it for just $39 per year with a four-month, 100%-money-back guarantee.

Plus...

My new book, The Choose Yourself Guide To Wealth, is finally out! It has taken me a year to put together all the skills I think are needed to create abundance in this new economy. I hope you write me with feedback and questions. I have more books coming.

Here's what the initial reviews on this book have said:

"James Altucher did it again. I just finished and have to say, it was a great read. Great insight into the future of wealth."

"I couldn't wait for this book to come out. It was well worth the wait! Very short and jam-packed with good ideas and advice for the budding entrepreneur. A must read!"

"This is the road map out. Very specific ideas to get you unstuck and to thrive in the 21st century. If you follow the ideas in this book, you will receive 1000% or more in return on your investment."

I'm really grateful for the response I've received so quickly. I feel we are quickly building a strong community of people who are deciding to "choose themselves."

 

If you want to get the book exclusively in hardcover, plus several other special reports, and a subscription to my new newsletter, which is essentially the equivalent of two additional chapters every month, claim your copy here.

James always says that you should over-promise and over-deliver. Though, most people say you should under-promise and then over-deliver.

The over-promise gets you beyond what people think you might be able to do. Yes, it's stressful, but you'll stand out.

Then, when you over-deliver beyond even that, you'll grow as a person.

Today's question for James is, would he home school his children?

James says absolutely, but only after the sixth grade. Well, sort of...

Instead he would "un-school" his kids. All they'd have to do is read one book per week and then discuss it with him. The rest of the time they could do whatever they want.

But here's the problem, James' kids want to go to school. They like the social aspect of it and they don't want to be one of those "weird" kids.

Listen here.

Is James' daily practice a way out of an addiction?

James says yes and no...

First, you need to become physically healthy. You need to sleep well, eat well, and exercise at least a little.

Listen today as James talks through becoming emotionally healthy, mentally healthy, and spiritually healthy.

Every day, try to improve just a little.

And remember to be grateful.

What's the deal with The Paleo Diet?

James says screw it, it's just another marketing message.

Our lifestyle is so different from that of our ancestors. We sit at work all day and watch TV all night, between trips to the refrigerator.

Today, James talks about what it really means to follow a paleo diet. It's a lot more than just which foods you eat.

It's a lifestyle.

How do I execute on my ideas?

 

It's extremely hard to come up with an idea worth executing. Execution is just a subset of ideas.

 

When you have a good idea, the next day you should make list of 10 ideas on how to move your idea forward.

 

I walk through a model you can copy.

Alan wants to know why I leas my car instead of buying it.

I'm  a bit conflicted about which is better – buying or leasing.

Today a car is really a computer with a bunch of metal wrapped around it. With technology moving so quickly, I don't want to be tied down to old technology.

I'd rather trade up every three years.

Plus, Claudia has a great idea for new car technology. Here's a hint... think about a wet dog.
