EFP 192 - Mark Manson On Which Fucks To Give

EFP 192: Mark Manson On Which Fucks To Give

Justin Cooke October 31, 2019

In this episode, I had the incredible opportunity to talk with the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, Mark Manson.

Mark went from being a relatively obscure blogger to a leading self-help author and bonafide public intellectual. He gave me free reign and was completely open regarding his struggles, success, and business.

Listen in as we discuss his story, his framework on deciding what to value in life, and the business side of being a bestselling author. We even get into Mark’s current collaboration with Will Smith (yeah…the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) to write his memoirs!

Whether you’ve read Mark’s books or not, this is an episode you don’t want to miss. Listen below and let us know what you think in the comments.
