Named one of LinkedIn's Top Influencers of the year and "The Most Fascinating Man in the World" by Forbes, James Altucher's (https://www.scribd.com/author/236154922/James-Altucher) popular business podcast The James Altucher Show is downloaded about 2 million times a month -- and for good reason. His show features fascinating interviews about life, entrepreneurship, and health with some of today's most influential voices, including Mark Cuban, Tim Ferriss, Arianna Huffington, Seth Godin, Elizabeth Smart and more. The New York Times has dubbed Altucher "the world’s least likely success guru," but he is, in his own right, a successful entrepreneur, investor, podcast host, and writer who has started and run more than 20 companies and invested in more than 30 companies.

Scribd CEO Trip Adler will interview James about his podcast, books, and how best to reinvent yourself for success in 2018 for this month’s ScribdChat!
