394 - Tucker Max: Speak Your Truth or Be Silenced [Part 1]

I’ve known Tucker Max for 2 decades now. 20 years ago, he emailed me for advice. I told him to quit his job. And he did. He’s the bestselling author of “I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell.” And I always tell people that if they want to study good writing, go read 10 pages of Tucker's books. “My stuff blew up... All I did was stand up and use my real name and tell my real stories about my real life.” So now Tucker wants to help other people get out there and tell their truth. This part 1 of my interview will tell you how to separate the truth from everything else. Then (in part 2), Tucker will tell you how to deal with fear, how to find your audience, and how to write.    Links and Resources Scribe Media - scribemedia.com Tucker’s series of articles “Asshole to CEO“I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell” by Tucker Max “Assholes Finish First” by Tucker Max  “Hilarity Ensues” by Tucker Max  “Sloppy Seconds: The Tucker Max Leftovers” by Tucker Max  Tuckermax.com Follow Tucker on Facebook + Twitter   Also Mentioned: "The Ultimate Guide to Self Publishing." This is my free guide for anyone who wants to write and self-publish their own book.
