This is the TRUE story about how one man, James Altucher, makes millions, loses it all, and bounces back better than ever. You’ll see how lies about being a psychic on Craigslist to meet women, convinces a hedge fund manager to let him manage money (even though he previously lost all of his own money in the stock market), and more. Even though James is a wildly successful business man (starting 20 companies, 18 of which failed), you’ll think he’s a comedian…
You see, while James was taking punches at his ego, he was also delivering an invaluable message – you don’t need credentials to find leads, convert those leads to clients, and build a successful business.
All you have to do is CHOOSE YOURSELF.
