Ask Altucher

James hits Claudia with another idea today. As he says, you are allowed to have bad ideas.

Today's idea is called "The Lottery Diet." You'll have to tune in to find out what his idea is all about.

Today's question comes from a listener who wants to know what James thinks about President Obama's idea to offer community college for free.

James says it's a horrible idea. Too many young people think that it is the "degree" that counts, but that's not correct.

It's not the piece of paper that matters... it's experience that really matters. Take those few years you'll waste in college and travel, intern, experiment.

You'll be much better off.

P.S. Hi, James here...

My new book is finally out! It has taken me a year to put together all the skills I think are needed to create abundance in this new economy. I hope you write me with feedback and questions.

Here's what the initial reviews on this book have said:

"James Altucher did it again. I just finished and have to say it was a great read. Great insight into the future of wealth."

"I couldn't wait for this book to come out. It was well worth the wait! Very short and jam-packed with good ideas and advice for the budding entrepreneur. A must read!"

"This is the road map out. Very specific ideas to get you unstuck and to thrive in the 21st century. If you follow the ideas in this book you will receive 1000% or more in return on your investment."

I'm really grateful for the response I've received so quickly. I feel we are quickly building a strong community of people who are deciding to "choose themselves."
