The latest episode of our Fortune Unfiltered podcast features serial entrepreneur and author James Altucher.

During the episode he offers advice varying from how to choose a personally appropriate career, how to bounce back from unexpected failure, how to stay creative, and how to practice minimalism (something he strictly adheres to).

He also shares his views on Silicon Valley, describing it as a distortion of entrepreneurship. His views of college are also contrarian: Altucher doesn’t believe in higher education and finds it to be a waste of time and money.
