James Altucher is an American hedge-fund manager, author, podcaster and entrepreneur who has founded or cofounded over 20 companies. He has published 20 books and is a contributor to publications including The Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, TechCrunch, and The Huffington Post. James joins Nick to talk about the definition of entrepreneurship itself, how technology is impacting the way we think and learn, how mind-set and risk management can help us to make better decisions, and why failure should always be seen as the first step towards achieving success. KEY TAKEAWAYS Entrepreneurship is often defined as a great idea taken to market through careful investing and promotion, but there are many facets to entrepreneurship. Even revamping existing concerns can be defined as such. We only have so much time on this earth, and so it is always best to apply our finite resource of time to pursuits that matter to us, personally, and which bring us the greatest rewards. Investing is a path to wealth, but we have to temper our ambitions with a good deal of risk management. We can't win big without speculation, but always do your best to make the bets as safe as possible. When we fail, we learn. Lessons stick with us if they are gained through failure. Sometimes, the power of these lessons is far greater than if they had come through a win. BEST MOMENTS 'I learned so much more from YouTube videos than I ever did from my teachers in school' 'You have to try a lot of things to know what you love doing' 'You only live once' 'Failure is the pathway to success?
