Ramit Sethi · October 30th, 2015

One of the best events I attended this month was the Pencils of Promise gala. Did you know that the IWT community raised over $300,000 to build 12 schools for children around the world — the most online donations ever in PoP’s history? Impressive:

I also got this great email from a reader. Being smart about your money doesn’t mean you don’t get to buy what you want:

Being weird and being okay with it
People lie all the time. They lie about how they lost weight or how they got a job or how they built their successful online business. That’s because they know other people don’t really want to know how the sausage is made. I would rather hear the unvarnished truth every time. What about you?

How to connect with busy people
It’s no secret that connecting with the right person can skyrocket your success. But how do you connect with them when their calendar is already packed? In this article I cover 3 steps to connect with busy people. And I include word-for-word scripts that’ll make you stand out and get the kind of responses that could change your life.

Dumb dumb dumb propaganda to buy a house
When I hear financial experts tell people that buying a house is one of the best investments they can make, I want to poke my eyes out. Find out how buying a house really works and why it’s not the investment most people make it out to be.

Money habits and secrets of the ultra wealthy
The wealthiest people in the world aren’t just the ones with the most money crammed in their pockets. Or the ones who have the best financial advisor or the highest salary. They’re the people who have something many others don’t. Listen in on my conversation with Paul Sullivan as he reveals the shocking insights he learned when he interviewed lots of people with lots of money.

IWT Mentions and Student Success

The coach who makes $700 per client without credentials
How many times have you said to yourself, “I want to do X, but I don’t have the right credentials.” Jarrett doesn’t have any either. But he still runs a business that focuses on helping software engineers create a career they love. And he makes a lot of money doing it.

The surprising value of skills you take for granted
Every single one of us has something to share with the world. But most of the time we undervalue that skill. Watch this video to see how Tom, a tutor who built a following of over 300 people (fast), found his “hidden expertise” to build a full-time, online education business. You can do it too. You just have to know where to look.
