Review: “I Will Teach You to be Rich”

Author: Ramit

Subject: Financial advice, interviews, etc.

Verdict: Good site, fun to read, sarcastic and synical.

Details: Ramit has a good sense of humour, likes pens, and thinks he’s better than everyone else (not that there’s anything wrong with that). This interesting mix makes for an interesting read, and the fact that Ramit is indeed knowledgeable in terms of becoming financially successful means you can learn something at the same time.

The best part of Ramit’s site are his weekly features. Every Friday he interviews a successful entrepreneur. These interviews have been very enlightening as the inverviewees run the gambit from owners of a small specialty pen distribution company, to Pam Slim of Escape from Cubicle Nation who blogs about how to successfully start your own business. Every Monday he will also be posting a new way to renegotiate one of your service contracts to save money (the first post showed us how to save on automobile insurance). We’re still waiting for the next installment which is due today.

Anyway, I strongly recommend checking out Ramit’s site. His site was a major contributor to my desire to start blogging about real estate, so it must be good. There is a wealth of useful information in the archives, so be sure to surf around.

  1. Ramit has some good info on his site but is lacking a bit in the “Real Estate Investing” subject. Aside from that, I like his personal finance topics and especially the entrepreneurship topics. Reading other people’s success stories sure does inspire me.

  2. I agree completely. Ramit doesn’t deal much in real estate, but his website is very interesting to read, and I think everyone can use some personal finance advice in addition to REI advice. After you make all that money investing in real estate, you don’t want to waste it, after all.

    Thanks for the comment.
