This entrepreneurial Web writer engages his audience and self-promotes to grow his brand- August 25, 2009
Picture a best-selling personal finance writer. Chances are, you won't imagine a 26-year-old who hates frugality tips and advises readers on "how to negotiate like an Indian." Ramit Sethi has built a huge following on his blog, I Will Teach You To Be Rich, through brutally practical advice that advocates smart long-term planning over penny pinching. Since creating the blog in 2004, Sethi has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Fortune, and BusinessWeek, and on NPR, ABC News, and the CBS Early Show. His book I Will Teach You To Be Rich, a six-week program for automating your money and your life, has hit both the New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-seller lists.
