James Altucher on freedom, writing, and meditation

June 17, 2015

Welcome to another episode of the Art of Humanity, where we explore creativity + consciousness to allow you and your business to evolve. In Episode 11, Jessica Ann talks with James Altucher:

James is the former president and founder of Stockpickr LLC, which was one of the first sites to combine social networking with stock investment ideas.

He is a successful entrepreneur, chess master, and best-seller writer. He has started and run more than 20 companies. His writing has appeared in major outlets including the Wall Street Journal, Tech Crunch, and Positively Positive.

He runs two podcasts “The James Altucher Show” and “Ask Altucher” in which he answers questions from listeners. His blog, The Altucher Confidential, has attracted 15+ million readers since its launch. He is the author of 14 books, including two WSJ best-sellers: Choose Yourself and The Power of No.



In this episode, James and I discuss:

  • How he achieves freedom
  • Why he stopped writing to please others
  • How curiosity prevents “having an opinion”
  • The importance of writing 10 ideas a day
  • How he mentally keeps young
  • Meditation and the current books he’s reading
