UPDATE: it’s not an accident that just this week we heard that Ryan and his book made the Wall Street Journal BestSeller list. Congrats Ryan! If you have not purchased this book or recommended it to those who might dig it, please consider doing so.
We had so much going on during the last few weeks that the superdope Ryan Holiday / Trust Me I’m Lying Episode repost on YouTube has taken us a few weeks to hit the blog. I can pretty much guarantee that you’ll learn more and be more inspired by Ryan than from any other over-achieving 24 year old on the planet. For those of you creatives who want to make a mark in your world and want to know how the pros do it, this is a must-watch.
Also, Ryan’s book <strong>”Trust Me, I’m Lying: Confessions of a Media Manipulator” is on sale now here at Amazon. It’s an incredibly worthy read – you’ll see why it was the “book deal of the week” when it was the announced. Plus, you won’t want to miss his book trailer, below. It’ll justifiably get your attention, even if all my ranting about its brilliance has not. #Respect
Loved Ryan’s book; my first time here but I’m hooked (thanks Chase!) – this video was amazing. A couple years ago I was the first time indie author making an idiot of myself sending out books and spam email, AND the artist desperate for attention trying to get anyone to look at my paintings. I’ve learned since then but hearing you guys talk about it really brought it home for me. It’s crazy how often these hurtful and ‘preposterous’ tactics are still relied on out of desperation and laziness. It’s incredible how fast you can get attention and support if you do it the right way.
Now that I work with creatives and have become a mini-gatekeeper, I’ve started to get emails like “help me critique my unfinished novel as I write it!”
