So Money - Episode 60

Tim Ferriss

Multiple New York Times Bestselling Author

A couple weeks ago I was doing a victory lap backstage at The Today Show, right as So Money® surpassed 100,000 downloads. Because, you know, that’s how I roll. I was all high-fives in the green room when, suddenly, a little magic happened.

A kind woman, overhearing me, turned to me and said, “You know who’d be a great guest on your podcast? Tim Ferriss.”

Me, sarcastically: “Oh, I know! I’d also love to interview Oprah!” I mean, right? Tim Ferriss? The multiple best-selling author, famous for The 4-Hour Workweek, The 4-Hour Body and The 4-Hour Chef. The incredibly successful entrepreneur, investor and podcast host?

That Tim Ferriss?

“Yes!” this divine woman, Tracy DiNunzio, founder of, insisted. “I’ll text him for you right now.”

I watched her thumbs glide over her iPhone in disbelief.

And before I knew it, Tim was emailing me and we were discussing having him on the show.

And so, it happened. Here is the spectacular Tim Ferriss joining us for a special episode of So Money®.

Three key takeaways:

  • How Tim volunteered his time to gain amazing connections and opportunities in his 20’s.
  • How Billy Joel influenced him many, many years ago to become the man he is today.
  • Where Tim prefers to invest his money and why.

ALSO! I’m giving away 5 Tim Ferriss e-book bundles. Each bundle will include an electronic copy of The 4-Hour Workweek, The 4-Hour Body and The 4-Hour Chef.
