How Alley NYC and Rackspace Are Helping Startups
Micro Interview with James Altucher
James Altucher is an advocate of the idea that Americans shouldn't send their kids to college and that they should never own a home. He believes that if one keeps physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually healthy, then all success can be found. Currently, he serves as Managing Director of Formula Capital. He has investments in Buddy Media, bit.ly, Ticketfly, CTera, Cancer Genetics, and several other companies.
This micro interview was conducted through Twitter.
Question: Top three industries to start a small business?
Altucher: internet marketing, social media marketing, shared economy search engine
Question: What is "shared economy search engine" in this response?
Altucher: i'd like to find a house and car and ping pong table in Miami in August. BAM! One site and i get all.
Altucher has several books worth reading that would be useful for entrepreneurs and those involved in or considering startups, including I Was Blind But Now I See: Time to Be Happy, How to Be the Luckiest Person Alive!, and Faq Me.
A micro interview is a very short concise to-the-point interview with no more than two or three questions and answers.
