  1. It's been more than two weeks, but the last thing I purchased that continues to make me laugh and smile is the fake rubber dog shit I got for $1 at the dollar store. That shit continues to make me laugh every time I see that shitđź’©

  2. I wonder why people think that they all can achieve the same level of "success" after being taught a skill. For example, I could be taught how to play basketball from Stephen Curry. Still at the end of the day I will still be at best junior college level player. Its an interesting speech and it could help some people. The nicest part of this is it should help you understand yourself better and that is a good thing.

  3. Summed Up:
    Lesson 1: Start taking responsibility for your money

    Lesson 2: Take fixed cuts off your paycheck and automatically spend them towards your goals
    Lesson 3: Start investing today. No joke.

  4. This is a variant of old "rich folks, don't feel guilty, spend your money"… (our consumerist "economy" depends on it)
    Most people need more money just to pay bills and survive to the next month.. or to have healthcare and generally to stave off mind numbing uncertainty that everyone is facing.

  5. If there's one thing this guy is good at it's marketing. He has had no other financial and business success in his life other than selling his courses and books to people wanting to get rich. There's a brilliance in there that he managed to get rich off of people wanting to learn how to get rich. But at the end of the day if it helps people, who am I to judge?

  6. After twenty minutes you haven't said nothing interesting or with value. Your future is at PBS .Another empty head getting rich from the pendejos.

  7. THIS is so inspiring! I got to plan out my money dial and see what’s important to me!

    I need more inspiring ideas đź’ˇ

    especially around a car

  8. I do not agree with him, if people's dreams are not that big and they are happy about it and chose it to be that way! why do they need to think again and make it bigger and much more challenging! looking at what people have makes you always want more!

  9. Ive read his book and its helped me tremendously. He has good advice and is a little more lenient and forgiving than Dave Ramsey’s “Total Money Makeover” BUT…

    I am having trouble wrapping my head around his “spend extravagantly” in this I love vs not in things I dont. I get it but his examples are only true to his life and his life doesn’t represent the majority of people’s life. He is rich. He can have a rich life. He has a choice of spending on the things that he loves.

    I don’t feel this is representative of the middle and low classes.

    Say for example I love spending money on fancy restaurants. Great! But I also have limited disposable income so while I love spending on fancy restaurants my limited disposable income tells me well you can do it once a month (if that) and I can cut on all the other things no car payment, small apartment etc but the disposable income doesn’t change is still limited by whatever amount is.

    When you have money making money then you can hack these into your money dials but before that I don’t see how its possible.

    Just a thought… nothing against him or his work.

  10. DONT INVEST!! INVEST IN YOURSELF!!! YOUR PARENTS ARE ROBBING YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY PAYMENTS!!! YOU WANT TO HAND YOUR MONEY TO THESE FUCKING THIEVES AND LET THEM MAKE BILLIONS OFF YOUR MONEY WHILE YOU GET PAID PEANUTS… FUCK YOU THIEF… DO NOT INVEST!!!!! YOU WANT TO INVEST IN THE ECONOMY, START YOUR OWN BUSINESS, DONT GIVE YOUR MONEY TO THE RICH RACISTS!!! TRUMP JUST GAVE THEM ALL A HUGE TAX BREAK!!!!

  11. "Money psychology" : that's why Dave Ramsey, Ramit, and others have so much success teaching personal finance. There is no point searching for hours for a lower interest rate if you are not ready to pay down debt aggressively in the first place.

  12. My goal is to have enough debt that generates 1 million dollars in revenue – wrap your brains around that – how do you get there

  13. Money is simple math. FYI compound interest on our investments is a complete MYTH & is just a marketing sales line for guys like this that doesn’t really exist. My money dial is buying things/experiences for those I love & are worth it.
