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.

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.

Tracy Morgan stopped by the club. I said, “Want to go on up?” He said, “I got nothing. I got nothing… Ahh, whatever. I’ll go up. I’M TRACY MORGAN!” He went up for 20 minutes just spewing jokes nonstop. Everyone was laughing. He had this raw energy. He was shouting and laughing. And making faces. […]

But then they rejected me (within days). I guess they didn’t think I was serious. But I am. I’m very serious. — HERE’S WHY WE NEED […]
