Ramit Sethi graduated from Stanford University in 2005, where he earned his undergraduate and master’s degrees, and studied technology and psychology. He co-founded PBwiki, a venture-backed start-up. He created and blogs at his own site, IWillTeachYouToBeRich.com, which serves over 300,000 readers each month, and has written a New York Times best-selling book by the same name.
He’s been featured in every imaginable print and broadcast outlet, including regular personal finance segments on ABC News. He’s also created 3 very strong pieces of original content for SpendLessTV.com, the personal finance and lifestyle site that I co-founded.
I’ve enjoyed getting to know Ramit over the past year or so, not least because he models conception, action and momentum so amazingly, but also because:
* he’s methodically assembled an amazing list of accomplishments in 6 short years since leaving university and has done so with seamless integrity;
* he’s interested in psychology, consumer market dynamics and how the reptilian brain drives purchasing decisions, as am I;
* a stunningly smart guy like Tim Ferriss tells me that Ramit is his go-to source for guidance in web analytics and testing;
* he’s built a smart, solid and sustainable web-based education business with great copy and design that looks and sounds more like PBS than Let’s Make A Deal;
* he’s turned away hundreds of thousands of dollars in business because it didn’t fit with his vision for his business, his personal brand, and/or his personal integrity;
* and — he’s a sharp-witted, endlessly fluent, appreciative and generous guy.
All of this makes Ramit Sethi a very rare breed . . . and someone to learn from, and watch closely.
And — I’m thrilled that Ramit will be one of the keynote speakers at my 12th Consumer Health Summit on May 5-6.
Here’s the story of this big mutual win, as Ramit recently told it on his blog:
Most of all, I’m happy to call Ramit Sethi a friend.
