This week, we speak with entrepreneur Ramit Sethi, who is the founder and chief executive officer of the online education platform I Will Teach You to Be Rich (IWT), which attracts more than 1 million readers a month. Sethi is also the host of the Netflix series “How To Get Rich,” which is based on his New York Times bestselling book “I Will Teach You to Be Rich“; he also hosts a podcast of the same name. His interest in the subject started in 2004, when he was studying technology and psychology at Stanford University.
He explains how he began a blog in college out of frustration with his fellow student’s inability to manage their own finances. That blog eventually became a short e-book, the success of which led him to write a full-length book.
We discuss how Netflix reached out to him about turning the book into a TV series, which has been a top 10 trending show since its launch last month.
