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.

What They Forgot to Tell You About Having Children

Having children is awful. “Oh, it’s the most precious experience there is!” Stop the B.S. A) A one-foot-tall brand new U.S. citizen suddenly moves into your house and you are FORCED to…

Having children is awful. “Oh, it’s the most precious experience there is!” Stop the B.S. A) A one-foot-tall brand new U.S. citizen suddenly moves into your house and you are FORCED to child-proof every object in your life. B) This one-foot-tall U.S. citizen (and what did she even do to deserve that passport?) doesn’t speak […]

How I Went From $0 to $15 Million and Then… Ugh

I had no business experience at all. My job was to go out at 3 a.m. once a week and interview people: “What are you up to at 3 a.m.?” I did…

I had no business experience at all. My job was to go out at 3 a.m. once a week and interview people: “What are you up to at 3 a.m.?” I did that for four years. Once a week I’d put up the best interviews for that week on the HBO website. It was a […]
