Quick and easy money?

Or are there too many downsides to this lucrative, yet extremely risky, idea?

Are you considering the disadvantages to your health?

Are you willing to risk your relationships with your loved ones?

James says the only people that make money in Wall Street are the people who are doing illegal things, people that hold forever, and the people who hold for a trillionth of a second...

Everyone thinks that they are smart enough, quick enough and lucky enough to day-trade... but are you that one in a million who really can succeed?

Or are you reaching for a dream that is never going to come true and have failed to realize that the house always wins.

James goes through the good, the bad, and the ugly, and the real TRUTH of day-trading...

It's the government vs. 22-year-olds...

Something is on the minds of many young adults... "Should I attend college?"

What are the advantages of going to college? Do they outweigh the massive amount of debt you risk burying yourself in with student loans?

Will that college degree guarantee a higher-paying salary after graduation?

People say, "Kids learn how to be socialized at college." James' response to that is "My kids don't need to get into $100,000 in debt in order to learn how to have friends."

It's a fantastic Ask Altucher that will have you thinking twice about that college degree...

WWII marked the beginning of the American Dream.

Men went to war, women went to work, we had double-income families, and more money led to more spending...

James breaks down the process of "why the current economic crisis started with WWII."

It all stems from the American dream to own and the desire to have everything.

As we're running fast to the edge of the cliff, James helps you get prepared to survive.

James will cover the questions that every individual faces during their lifetime...

*Should I buy a house?

*Is a college education worth the time and money spent?

*Should you go to see a doctor?

He'll cover topics like...

*Why you should quit your job today

*How to become an overnight success for the rest of your life

*How you should invest your money

He'll give you his "cheat sheets" and the tools he uses every day.

We're excited to launch this new series. And to get it started off, James asked that we give anyone who wants it his free new book, Choose Yourself Stories.

We hope you enjoy it.
