Ramit Sethi / Keynote
This keynote presentation from Ramit Sethi was presented live on the main stage at #FinCon19 on Thursday, September 5, 2019.
Ramit Sethi was one of the very first keynote speakers at #FinCon11, and we’re excited to have him back on the main stage at #FinCon19 in Washington, D.C.
Sethi has become a financial guru to millions of readers in their twenties, thirties, and forties. He started his website as a Stanford undergraduate in 2004, and he now hosts over a million readers per month on his blog, newsletter, and social media.
Sethi grew up in Sacramento, the son of Indian immigrant parents who taught him the art of negotiating—his father once spent five days negotiation with a car dealer, only to walk away over a set of floor mats. He wasn’t the smartest kid in his class, but he loved building systems, which ultimately earned him over $200,000 in scholarships, which he used to get bachelor’s and master’s degrees in technology and psychology at Stanford. His understanding of human behavior and money led to him creating innovated solutions in self-development.
Ramit and his team of dozens of employees build premium digital products about personal finance, entrepreneurship, psychology, careers, and personal development for top performers. The IWT community includes 1 million monthly readers, 400,000 newsletter subscribers, and 35,000 premium customers.
He has written about personal finance for The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times and has been interviewed on dozens of media outlets including NPR, ABC News, CNBC, and popular podcasts like The Tim Ferriss Podcast.
