    Structured as a six-week plan, I Will Teach You to Be Rich offers no get-rich-quick schemes or stock tips. Instead, the book focuses on long-term, personal finance strategies that build wealth over the course of decades, making the 20-something listener a perfect target audience. The plan also urges its adherents to forego the small changes, like nixing the daily Starbucks latte, to set their sights on far bigger goals that they can achieve over the long term.

    Platforms connect two types of users in order to exchange something of value. This is different from the traditional pipeline model of business where something of value is created by transferring it from producer to producer with the consumer receiving it at the last step. Platforms are dominating production processes particularly because they reduce the costs of value creation, consumption, and quality control.
