A Comedy Self-help Podcast to Make Life Suck Less!

Could you learn how to be rich?

Jun 7, 2019

This week, we review the New York Times bestseller I Will Teach You to Be Rich by Ramit Sethi. 

Here's the deal... we feel this is a great book for young millennials or anyone looking to learn the very basics of finance, like different kinds of bank accounts and simple investing. But if you've already got a handle on those things, well...

Anyway!

Here's a bit about the author from his website:

"Instead of saying “no” to spending on everything, I wanted to use money to say YES. I knew there was a better way to live a rich life—if we could use psychology to focus on what actually works. Not just for personal finance, but all aspects of life: money, careers, relationships, business, fitness and more. Since then, I've been testing and sharing my findings with the world via I Will Teach You To Be Rich."

In I Will Teach You to Be Rich, Ramit Sethi outlines a 6-week game plan to set you up for financial success:

  1. Set up your credit cards and learn how to improve your credit score
  2. Get your bank accounts set up right
  3. Open a 401k and investment account
  4. Figure out how much you’re spending and what to do with your money
  5. Automate your new infrastructure so your accounts flow together nicely
  6. Learn about investing and why it isn’t the same as picking stocks

We cover every chapter in this I Will Teach You to Be Rich Book Review, including:

  1. Optimize Your Credit Cards
  2. Beat the Banks
  3. Get Ready to Invest
  4. Conscious Spending
  5. Save While Sleeping
  6. The Myth of Financial Expertise
  7. Investing Isn't Only for Rich People
  8. Easy Maintenance
  9. A Rich Life
