Tucker Max is the Co-Founder of Scribe Media, a publishing company that helps writers get their stories out through affordable and high-quality media services. Some of the notable authors he’s worked with include David Goggins, Todd Herman, Mark Divine, and Chris Kresser. Tucker is also the author of a series of books categorized as “fratire,” where he writes about being a man in a politically incorrect fashion.

Tucker joins me today to share how he found success as a writer and what made him start a publishing company. He discusses how he differentiated himself from his critics and how he started the “fratire” genre. He describes his journey towards self-healing and mental growth, and how his kids taught him to be a better parent. Tucker also explains why therapy is always a good choice and why he let go of trying to control what will happen tomorrow.

"You can run from emotions for a long time, but eventually - if you have any self-awareness at all - they catch up.” - Tucker Max
