I just came home and realized that I have like a billion new readers from some links on some popular sites.
If this is your first time visiting iwillteachyoutoberich.com, no, it’s not a scam. I’m a recent Stanford grad and this is a blog on personal finance and personal entrepreneurship for college students, recent college grads, and everyone else. (Featured in the Wall Street Journal, Boston Globe, Guardian UK, etc.)
This blog is me ranting about a few things and trying to get the points across. Getting started is more important than being the smartest person in the room. Making mistakes is ok. Action is more important than reading 50 blogs. Ordinary actions get ordinary results. And there’s a difference between being sexy and being Rich.
