Rami Sethi is the author of the bestseller I Will Teach You To Be Rich, and has become a financial guru to millions of readers in their 20s, 30s and 40s. He started his website when he was a Stanford undergrad in 2004, and now has millions of followers of his blog, newsletter and all his social media. Some of his views on personal finance run counter to prevailing views and are interesting. For example, he advocates selective saving to allow for ‘passion’ spending on something special. He also discusses prenups which he feels are not discussed enough. This interview with Tim Ferriss on the Tim Ferriss Show is very interesting.
