I have a platonic man crush on Ramit Sethi. I’ve pretty much been stalking him since 2007 (when I started ODOJ) by subscribing to his blog, signing up for his e-mail list, reading his book, poring over his Delicious links, and buying one of his courses. We even met in person once. It was in the lobby of a trendy W hotel waiting for him, and when he walked up I played it cool by slamming my head into some stupid lamp that was hanging over the lounge chair that I was sitting on. Why am I so obsessed with some random Indian dude who is only a couple years older than me? Because he has built an amazing business that helps people achieve their career and financial dreams. I tend to gag at most of the advice that I hear from “career experts,” yet when I see something come from I Will Teach You To Be Rich (Ramit’s company–he used to have to reiterate that it’s not a scam because the name sounds so questionable), my eyes get all dreamy and I just start nodding in agreement. I occasionally even yell “YES!” at my computer.
When Ramit started, I Will Teach You To Be Rich was just a blog. He was offering great personal finance advice and getting a lot of press attention for it. The blog led to a book that instantly went to #1 on Amazon and became a New York Times bestseller. The success of the book helped the blog transition into more of a business, and that business has grown to generate millions of dollars in revenue. It’s an amazing story, and speaks to how smart and driven Ramit is. Today most of IWTYTBR’s business is focused on online courses. These include:
The above are affiliate links, but I’ve recommended Ramit’s products since well before he had an affiliate program. What I think is so cool about Ramit and IWTYTBR is that he won’t sell you his courses right away. He wants to give you a lot of the content for free first (he asks you to sign up for an e-mail list–I’m subscribed to a few of them) because he wants to make sure that you’re the type of person who will succeed in his course. He even excludes people with credit card debt from signing up for some of his courses.
While I think that the content that Ramit produces (both free and paid) is remarkable, I’m even more fascinated by watching how he has built his business. I’ve seen him offer jobs and internship in the past, but I Will Teach You To Be Rich finally has a Careers page. There are 9 jobs posted right now, and the following positions are worth checking out (all of them are remote/virtual):
Working with Ramit is a great way to learn to be rich. I’m not sure I’d call any of these “entry level” positions, but for the right recent grad with a desire to learn and work hard, these are amazing opportunities.
