SXSW Interview: Small Business Insights From Ramit Sethi

Yesterday at SXSW, we were fortunate enough to catch up with Ramit Sethi, author of the New York Times Bestseller, I Will Teach You To Be Rich. Ramit also writes for his own site, – a popular online blog for personal finance tips, small business insights and a host of other topics.  His work has been featured in several prominent media outlets, including ABC News, CNN, and the Wall Street Journal to name a few.

In our interview with Ramit, we explored solutions to several challenges shared by small business owners including:

  • how to find the right price to charge your clients
  • how to perform insightful customer research that will help drive your business forward.

We also asked Ramit about a few of his own unconventional tactics – for instance, why he refuses to allow customers with credit card debt into his courses.
