Adam’s guest on this episode is James Altucher, a successful entrepreneur, investor, board member, bestselling author, and blogger. He also recently became a podcaster, hosting the popular twice-a-week James Altucher Show and the daily Ask Altucher. They have a spirited conversation about why it’s important to “choose yourself,” which is the title and topic of James’ recent book. James relates this credo to podcasting, which lets producers sidestep the traditional media gatekeepers to reach audiences directly.
