So you think making a million dollars will make you happy?

What if we told you money doesn't equate to happiness? Would you laugh?

This month for our #bossup series we bring you James Altucher who has made millions, lost it all, and did it all over again. Due to his experience, he is a firm believer that money does not equal happiness. He will tell us why he believes this and how we should go about obtaining true happiness in business or in life.

Let’s be honest, we would all love to wake up knowing that we have a million dollars in the bank, but will it be that fulfilling?

James will talk about his experience and how Hip Hop has influenced his businesses. Then in true Phat Startup fashion we will open up the questions to YOU! 

For 30 minutes we will have our own ask James anything segment so YOU can ask him the questions you need answered.
