I wanted to let you guys know that I’ve moved to New York.
I’m still keeping my apartment in San Francisco, but I’m spending most of my time in NYC.
When I was explaining this to a friend’s parents, they were totally confused. “You’re keeping BOTH apartments?” they asked, not understanding my ridiculous lifestyle at all. “Yeah,” I said, “I’ll be bi-coastal.” This made them look completely lost, so I told them, “That’s just a word that young, entitled people use these days.” That made them feel better. Ah, old people.
I moved to NYC to grow “I Will Teach You To Be Rich,” the brand, and to understand the very different culture here vs. Silicon Valley. I’ll be doing lots more TV, media, and other partnerships. In fact, starting this week, I’ll be a weekly contributor on ABC News Now (get your money question answered on the air).
I’ve always wanted to live in New York. But the main thing I realized was that if I didn’t actively DO IT — not think about it, not say “yeah, I should really do that…” — it would never happen. I’m 28. We all have a limited time to do the carefree things we want. It never gets easier than now.
And I’m keeping my SF apartment because I like it and I have a lot of friends there. To me, the ability to use money to live the lifestyle you want is EXACTLY what this site is about.
So look for lots of new developments from me. This is a new chapter with “I Will Teach You To Be Rich” and I’m thrilled to have such an amazing community along with me.
