BI 033: More Money More Options Ramit Sethi!

I read a few comments over the years that Ramit is arrogant and a little in your face. I let this prejudice sway me from diving into more of his content. Plus I still have bad memories from when Ramit Sethi and Pat Flynn Almost Killed Buck Inspire. Since I am constantly improving my own mindset, I powered through and listened to his interview on Mixergy. He can be a bit abrasive, but this guy knows his stuff. I thought his take on “Why do people want to make more money?” was eye opening. I was caught up in the usual canned answers like most people. “I want to buy more things. I want to travel. I don’t want to stress.” The list goes on and on.

Do you want more money for the same reason? If not, what is your reason? What is your actionable plan for getting there?

Stay Inspired!

  1. There is nothing wrong with shooting for the stars but to compare yourself to those two is almost like looking for reasons not move forward. Though you could look at them as inspiration and know that they started off just like you and look where they are today. Takes time and hard work. Plus you have them giving people advice. Thanks for the podcast.

    As for my reason in wanting more money well its simple, at least i think. I want to retire early but live the same lifestyle I am today. The more I make and save the faster I can stop working and truly just do the things I enjoy.

    I find Ramit abrasive and arrogant….but I think it’s awesome. The first finance book I recommended my son read was Ramit’s. Testosterone sells.

    I met Ramit and heard him speak at FinCon. He’s not my kind of guy, but I can respect what he does.
    I disagree with the option to leave your job conclusion. I already left my job and I still want to make more money. Doesn’t that mean I want to leave self employment? I guess it’s a bit too broad.

      I understand where you are coming from. I would say you are the exception to the rule. Most people with a 9 to 5 don’t have the luxury to leave like you. So most people are striving to get to where you are. That is dependent on having enough money to survive on your wife’s paycheck and your other streams of income. I should have specified, the takeaway applies to people who work for someone else.
