Episode 51: James Altucher on Choosing Yourself

James Altucher has started and ran more than 20 companies and is currently an investor in & 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 that today’s standard view of success comes with conditions and the only way to be truly successful and fulfilled is to “Choose Yourself.” Now, James Altucher is a bestselling author, successful entrepreneur, angel investor, chess master, and host of The James Altucher Show podcast.
In this interview, we discuss:

Our shared experience of minimalism/buying/purging and why you should never have a mortgage
Why the flow state is necessary to be a good writer 
The deprogramming that’s necessary as an entrepreneur 
The benefits of having a traditional publisher vs. self-publishing
