My guest today says he doesn’t like talking about personal wealth. He reveals this late in our interview, which kind of shocked me and made feel a bit bad because here I am digging into his personal finances. But he graciously makes an exception for us. My former boss and mentor Jim Cramer, co-founder of TheStreet.com and host of Mad Money on CNBC is on the show.
We catch up on old times, chat about how and where he’s investing his money today, how he overcomes criticism and that time he got swindled by a friend…millions of dollars!
If you’d like to learn more about Jim Cramer visit his websites www.cnbc.com/mad-money and www.thestreet.com or follow him on Twitter @JimCramer.
One of my favorite quotes from the interview: “Make sure you have a network of friends as you get older. It’s really important. They’re hard to come by.” – Click to Tweet
November is all about giving back at So Money!
I’ve partnered with Joe Saul-Sehy, host of the Stacking Benjamins podcast to host a charity fundraiser/competition the entire month. He and I have each selected a personal charity and our goal is to raise tons of money with your help.
The So Money charity is THON, a dance marathon and the largest student-run philanthropy held at Pennsylvania State University (my alma mater!) that helps raise money and awareness for the fight against pediatric cancer. You can donate here.
The Stacking Benjamins charity is Texas 4000, a 4,000 mile bike ride that University of Texas students take to raise money for cancer research and cancer related causes. You can donate here.
The podcast that receives the MOST money for its charity will win the chance to write the introduction to the other person’s podcast in January (buhahah!)
We’ll keep you updated throughout the month!
