I Will Teach You To Be Rich
This flagship 60-90 minute presentation covers:
The Psychology of Behavioral Change
This 60-minute presentation covers in-depth psychological strategies and tactics tested on 1+ million students to change financial behavior. It’s not just attitudes — we all “know” we should manage our money, but we don’t. What matters is changing actual behavior.
Other topics include:
Why Entrepreneurs Win
How do entrepreneurs think differently about success, risk and reward, and even day-to-day activities? What does it mean to take educated risks? And why is failure almost always taboo? Sethi covers the basics of his ideas about entrepreneurship using real-life examples, including how he has started a number of companies, battled fancy New York lawyers, and has won. But he also covers his ventures that have failed, and the valuable lessons to be learned from them.
Everything You Thought About College Admissions and Scholarships Was Wrong
Imagine how many times you’ve heard something like this: “I hope my son/daughter gets a scholarship so they can go to college” or “I’m not going to apply to Harvard. Even if I got in, I couldn’t afford it.”
These are some of the most commonly misunderstood ideas when it comes to college admissions and scholarships. Sethi, whose scholarships entirely covered his undergraduate and graduate education at Stanford University, describes the common mistakes that high-school students make when applying for college admissions and scholarships. He gives specific, actionable advice for crafting the best application possible. And he changes the way students think about succeeding in their goals.
Sethi has co-founded and manages ScholasticAdvising, a research and advising company targeting college admissions and scholarships.
