James Altucher is a hedge fund manager who has also founded or cofounded more than 20 companies. He’s published about a dozen books—USA Today named Choose Yourself as one of the best business books of all time—and is a frequent contributor to myriad publications.

But it wasn’t until I interviewed him on my podcast So Money recently that I learned a darker side to James’ financial history and the money anxiety he’s combatted over the years.
Here’s how he explained it to me…and how he’s overcoming it.
