Today we're interviewing Tucker Max, writer, entrepreneur, father, husband, and an ever-evolving human being. But even Tucker would be the first to say he doesn’t want to label himself; that’s one of the topics of conversation we get into. This is a guy who has written four books, and three of them have gone on to become New York Times bestsellers. He has produced a movie, and has started five companies. He’s done a lot in a short period of time. The other fascinating thing he’s done is essentially evolved who he is as a human being. He wrote a blog series that talks about how he went from—these are his words, not mine—"from an asshole to the CEO." (And now, how he has "fired himself" as the CEO.) We cover so many interesting topics in this conversation, from meditation to Buddhism to divorcing your ego from your business dealings, to what it’s like to start all these businesses. Hiring people, firing people, books he recommends, and much more. For those of you who know about Tucker Max or have read any of his books, I can assure you this episode is absolutely engaging from start to finish.
