Hey Friends of Ramit

When I graduated Berkeley in 2004 I started working at Intel. It sucked.

I wanted to meet likeminded people starting businesses so I reached out to Clara Shih (who's now on the board of Starbucks) a fellow Microsoft intern.

She went to Stanford so she had to know some smart Asian and Indian kids :)

I asked her, “Who are the smartest people you know doing interesting things?”

The first person she recommended was Ramit Sethi.

I met Ramit and liked him instantly.

Here’s a picture of us together at the Facebook mansion:

Notice Ramit's sexy faux Goatee!

He told me jokes about his name, about a popular t-shirt line he created: “you have died of dysentery t-shirt” and how he ran this blog proclaiming to teach people how to be rich.

It was a jindian (jew + indian) match made in heaven. Finally I met someone doing interesting things out in the world!

Over the past 10 years Ramit and I have both done some impressive things and stayed friends throughout. NNGF. We even have acronyms like that which you’ll never figure out.

The most impressive thing about Ramit has been his persistence.

He’s STILL writing about teaching people how to live rich lives over 10 years later.

How many blogs have you started reading only for the blogger to stop writing and give up?

It’s easy to do anything once but to keep doing something every year for over 10 years seems boring to most. To Ramit, it’s been an evolution.

The second most important thing are his readers. Over the past 2 years I’ve become better known and gotten the chance to meet thousands of people. As I've met some amazing people there is one common thread over the years...

...that one thread is how many of those people have read Ramit's blog and bought his products.

“Oh yea, I’m in RBT.”

“Yea Noah. My $50/month improvement budget goes to Ramit’s course.” <= This was from an employee of mine.

“Yes, this tactic I’m using to get more money out of you Noah is courtesy of your brown friend Ramit.”


Anyways, we are hiring at AppSumo and it got me thinking that since Ramit has some of the best readers aka “students,” who better to hire than them.

I reached out to Ramit and asked if he’d share this listing with all of you.
