If you’re visiting from today’s Yahoo Finance article on 8 Rules to Break To Build Wealth, welcome.

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, New York Times, Boston Globe, US News & World Report Online, 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.

3 simple ways to get started managing your money

Be realistic about getting rich

Avoid the financial pundits

  1. Enjoyed the Yahoo Finance/Bankrate piece! I agree with you that new investors will make mistakes, but those mistakes won’t hurt as much as ones made later with more at stake. This is another reason my dollar-cost-averaging into stocks and funds makes sense when you have large sum to invest. Drop the entire amount on a single investment and you could lose your shirt, fast!

  2. Dude, I hate to break it to you, but you’re no longer “recent” graduate of Stanford. You graduated in June, 2005.

  3. Hmm…it may be time to change that…

  4. congrats on your book!

    though I do have to question the truism about “starting early” as being the best factor for later returns… it certainly helps, but I think it only applies if you’re a buy-and-hold investor aiming for dividend growth. If you’re in and out, it’s not going to matter so much when you started (for both reasons).

  5. MoneyEnergy: True. But I always advocate for buy-and-hold, since it nearly always wins over the long term.

  6. Hi Ramit,

    Found your website’s link on bankrate and have already spent about a couple hours reading interesting articles here. I have about $50,000 to spare that i would like to invest. I have so far been investing this money in CD’s as they paid about 5% returen, but now it’s difficult to get even half of that return. Could you please suggest something that i could invest in. I wouldn’t be using this money for atleast 5 years. I would be comfortable taking only a moderate risk.

    Thanks again for putting up such a informative website.

  7. God bless you for such a wonderful idea you’ve established .

  8. Lost everything in the past ! Starting over from nothing need to Know from trusted site’s for small stocks to start with trust stock broker who’ll sell when there told asap and not wait any time. looking to keep then out of loop more time is of major importants. I do know which one to pick in the past!

  9. Very good article. I’m facing a few of these issues as well..

  10. Before you start calling properties and getting estimates, you may
    need to find out what you need cleaned. Now that you
    have a set of questions to work with, its time to start contacting companies and get a few estimates.
    To begin with, you would need an office, some people who will clean the apartments and also some cleaning
    equipments.

  11. Hi, Does anyone know of a way of cnnighag the way that emails look in your inbox so that you can see at a glance if they have been replied to without opening them to see if there is the text you replied on xxxx’ ? I’m looking for a simple way of telling when an email hasn’t been replied to without having to do anything so the ideal way would be for all emails that have been given a reply to change color in the inbox so its clear which emails have and haven’t been replied to. Any ideas anyone? Maybe an add on? We are an internet retailer and get hundreds of emails per day at times so i want an idiot proof way of missing an email to reply to. We use outlook 2007 at the moment.

  12. These are the right size for most cleaning jobs, very absorbent, lint free, and
    best of all reusable. Many mothers today work outside the home in addition to raising
    children, and sometimes housework suffers as a result. While you schedule your work, make sure
    that you make allowance for cleaning different parts of the house on different days.

  13. Well I guess I don’t have to spend the weekend figuring this one out!

  14. These are the right size for most cleaning jobs, very absorbent, lint free, and best of all reusable.

    It is an extremely versatile product that is inexpensive and helps cut back on the use
    of expensive chemicals. There are a couple of excellent e-courses available that give a lot of really valuable information on how to structure your business,
    where and how to get clients, how to calculate prices, what
    equipment and supplies are needed etc, and in my opinion are well worth the $30 or $40 they
    cost.

  15. 4) One Cleaning Supply at a Time – Instead of cleaning one room top to bottom then moving onto the next on cleaning day, pull out one cleaning supply and use it everywhere you need to in your home.

    Now that you have a set of questions to work with, its time to start contacting
    companies and get a few estimates. These mops can be
    a bit pricey initially, but over time will add up to hundreds of dollars in savings on floor products, especially if you have many types of flooring.

  16. Another must-have piece of equipment is a cell phone to enable
    easy response to your customers. Will you need the cleaning service to do a
    thorough cleaning for you. To begin with, you would need an office,
    some people who will clean the apartments and also some cleaning equipments.

  17. These are the right size for most cleaning jobs, very absorbent, lint free,
    and best of all reusable. It is an extremely versatile product that is inexpensive and helps cut back on the use of
    expensive chemicals. Of course, you don’t want to be doing something every minute of the day, so take some time to relax too.

  18. Apply it to a soft cloth and use it to wipe down woodwork and furniture.
    This lets them know how they have done and it helps them to improve their cleaning.
