Money does not solve all your problems

Yeah right. People without money hear that all the time. Don't touch my sportscar!
James Altucher got that straight by completing the phrase. "Money does not solve all your problems - but it solves your money-problems"
Which is a lot.
And a driving force behind his extremely successful blog, Altucher Confidential.

And he is part of the the '10 easy steps to...', '10 things to take when you go to Mars' - advice columns that infest the net. I once wrote so - mildly critical - spotting the now legendary (and then half-legendary) guy close to this bunch of click-baiters (here). He was personally offended and posted quite a nice reply - he saw himself as actually helping people (what he did). Got close to Yoga (through personal experience). And his writing was really fast and great.
It just sometimes smelled like there was a business-idea somewhere in the machine-room. And indeed, we now get these never-ending videos where you are strung along ('wait, I will tell you my biggest secret at the end...' - I never waited. And I am still working for money).
James Altucher is entertaining. A quick mind. And I am sure he would not comment the same way he did in those old days. No allergic reactions to '10 easy steps to...' - except that The World at large has reacted:
Now '9 (NINE) steps to...'-lists have become fashionable.
Yay!
(I am not sure they have understood my point)
