#273 Exploring a Minimalist LIfe with James Altucher


I recently listened to a podcast that prompted me to say aloud, “I need to interview this guy!” Thankfully in the social media age, I was able to tweet the host, James Altucher to let him know: Apr 30, 11:29am via Twitter for iPhone

@jaltucher I just listened to your minimalist podcast and it blew me away...would you consider being a guest on my podcast?

From that tweet, “Jill on Money” history was made…for the first time in over five years of doing the show, we decided to have just one guest – James Altucher – for the ENTIRE show.

Even jaded Mark fell in love with James--here's a selfie we took in the studio.

Mark, Jill and James

If you are not familiar with James, you are in for a treat. He is a serial entrepreneur, investor, trader, writer and now podcaster. What drew me to James was his authenticity and willingness to talk about not just success, but also his failures. As you hear about his life, you may think, “How can I be more like this guy?” If so, you should read James’ book, “Choose Yourself”. You should also check out this post about minimalism as well as these posts that I think will be of great interest:
