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

22 Comments

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.

Free books, too
AND, I have a bunch of books to give away, including Suze Orman’s Money Book for the Young, Fabulous & Broke, The Bogleheads’ Guide to Investing, and Nassim Taleb’s The Black Swan. More than 1 copy, too, so you should definitely come.

How to attend
Date: Saturday, December 6th
Time: 12pm Pacific (that’s 3pm Eastern)
Location: Go here
Technical problems? If anything goes wrong, I’ll update my Twitter

Get reminded
Btw, if you want a reminder, enter your email below and I’ll send you a reminder so you don’t forget. (That’s totally optional, though.) Hopefully the chat will be useful, so I hope to see you there!

  8. I’d love to be able to, but I have to work my 2nd job. DJing a wedding. Any chance it’s going to be logged so those of us that can’t attend can at least benefit from the knowledge?

  9. Probably not going to log it, sorry :(

  10. Then I hope it goes really well so you’ll do more :)

  11. How do you plan to give out those books? Those books are on my wishlist and I’d love to get my hands on them for $0.

  12. Hey Ramit,
    A big fan and ardent reader of IWTYTBR.com.
    I am trying to cut down on my TV watching bills by cutting off the Directv but I have another year of contract still left with them. I’d like to get out of it without paying the early termination fees. Got any negotiation tips to do that ? Maybe you can cover it on your live webcast on Sat.

    Thanks a bunch. Keep up the good work
    Sincerley,
    Iwillberich

  13. I’m going to pick some people who ask good questions and mail them the books.

    Karthik: Hope to see you on Saturday.

  14. Karthik: Check out Consumerist.com, they have tons of tips and tricks for getting out of early termination fees and negotiating lower rates on anything from phone bills to cable/satellite bills.

  15. nooo…CFA exam afternoon session goes 2-5pm EST =(
