WILL YOU BE 1% BETTER TODAY?

WILL YOU CHOOSE YOURSELF?

YES, YES I WILL!

Hi, I'm James

I’m an entrepreneur and angel investor. I’ve achieved the rank of chess master. And I’m the author of the Wall Street Journal best-selling book “Choose Yourself.” I’ve started 20 companies, 17 of which have failed. But I’ve learned a lot along the way.

If you’ve ever been stuck—in a job you hate, in a house you can’t afford, in a life you don’t want, in your own depressed mind, anything— I want to help you.

Why? Because I get it. I’ve been there. And I want to tell you how I freed myself so maybe you can start to free yourself, too.

BLOG

That was many years ago and a lot has happened since then. I now get to do what I love every day. I get to write books that mean something to me, and I get to share my thoughts on this blog. I get to interview really incredible people on my top-10 rated podcast, “The James Altucher Show.” I contribute articles to sites like The Wall Street Journal, Yahoo! Finance, and Business Insider.

And it’s all in pursuit of my greatest mission: to help other people choose themselves, too.

“Why don’t you ever talk about climate change on your podcast?” It was Christmas night. Full house at the club. I just had done a standup set for 60 minutes and did a little Q&A afterwards. At first I was thinking of a real reason. I was thinking how my wife hides the plastic straws […]

I haven’t written in 24 hours. I feel sick now. Like my brain is empty. Like maybe my brain has decided it will never write again. Like maybe I’m a failure now. All I’ve wanted to do for the past 30 years is write every day and now it’s finished. I can’t even feed my […]
