Free books and a live webcast on Saturday — is it Christmas already?

Ramit Sethi

Guys, I’m in a great mood. The Save $1,000 in 30 Days Challenge has been awesome so far. I still have a bunch of tips (some of which aren’t well-suited for writing on a blog), so I’m going to try something new this Saturday and host a live online webcast to give you some of the tips I haven’t gotten around to writing up. (The Challenge will still continue here, too.)

Join me on Saturday for a web chat, when I’ll cover…

  • How to negotiate with your credit card or bank
  • How I set up my bank accounts
  • Savings tips I use
  • How to publish a book
  • Any questions you have

I’ll take as many questions as you can throw at me. If you’ve been wondering about asset allocation, or getting started with your entrepreneurial idea, bring it and I’ll see if I can help.
