Bestselling Author of I Will Teach You to Be Rich

Ramit Sethi was headlined as “Generation Y’s favorite personal finance advisor” in a recent profile on Author of the bestselling I WILL TEACH YOU TO BE RICH, which reached #1 on Amazon the day it was published, he has become a financial guru to Millennials in their twenties and early thirties. He started his website,, as a Stanford undergraduate in 2004, and his blog now reaches 250,000 readers per month. He is a popular speaker at universities and companies including MIT, Stanford, Intel, Deloitte, and the Credit Union National Association.

As brash and entertaining as he is practical and wise, Sethi explains how to beat banks and credit cards at the fee game, automate your cash flow, negotiate for a raise, manage student loans, and enjoy your lattes and Manolo Blahniks by practicing conscious spending. His friend Tim Ferriss, author of The 4-Hour Workweek, says “There are a handful of people who are very analytical and good at testing and have, almost as a side effect, built these personal brands. Ramit is one.”

Sethi grew up in Sacramento, the son of Indian immigrant parents who taught him the art of negotiating—his father once spent five days negotiating with a car dealer, only to walk away over a set of floor mats. He wasn’t the smartest kid in his class, but he was really good at devising systems, which ultimately earned him over $200,000 in scholarships, which he used to get bachelor’s and master’s degrees in technology and psychology at Stanford. He studied behavioral psychology, which spurred him to investigate and suggest ways of overcoming the psychological hurdles that kept people from managing their money wisely.

Sethi added enormously successful online courses to his free newsletter and blog on, and several years ago he gradually shifted from advising people on cutting back to teaching them how to earn more and make money on the side, a move that served him well with the ensuing recession and corporate layoffs. He has written about personal finance for

The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times, and been interviewed on dozens of media outlets including NPR, ABC News, and CNBC, and popular blogs like The 4-Hour Work Week and Mashable.
