Ramit Sethi is the author of the New York Times bestseller, “I Will Teach You To Be Rich” and writes for over half a million monthly readers on his website,, where he covers psychology, personal finance, careers, and entrepreneurship.

Ramit’s unusual combination of psychology, analytical testing, and irreverent style led Fortune Magazine to call him the “new finance guru on the block.” Ramit appears on ABC and PBS regularly, and periodically writes for the New York Times. He studied social influence and persuasion at Stanford, and previously co­founded PBworks, a Silicon Valley collaboration startup.

Three takeaways from our conversation:

— How Ramit is making 2015 the year of MORE

— How taking willpower out of the equation allows him to perform at his peak

— And how he spends just 1 hour per month on his finance.
