Dr. Jeremy Weisz here, Founder of where I talk with inspirational entrepreneurs and leaders and Tucker I was like to mention past episodes that people should check out. John Ruhlin he was talking about John Ruhlin of Giftology. John is an amazing human being. And I was thinking of like different authors I respect him like, and you’ll see why that conversation is relevant before I introduce Tucker Max from Scribe Media, but I’ve read and listened to I probably listened to three to six books per week on Audible. I do listen to him on multiple time speeds I can get through them but but like David Goggins book, The Who Not How book, which is part of the Scribe Media family, John Ruhlin, I mean, I could probably list over 70 books that I probably listened to. So check out past episodes. John Ruhlin is an amazing one. And, you know, there’s so many good ones, I just released one with the Founder of Kettle Chips and Kona Brewery, and just comes from humble I love hearing the, you know, just had to toil and work. And it just takes a lot of grit. And we see the journey on the other side when they’re successful. But like all the blood, sweat, and tears that went into building that company, in the points where it could have all crumbled around him, and he just kept going. So those are the real stories that we see the overnight success after, like 30 years, you know, so I love hearing those. So listen to that in other episodes. And before I introduce Tucker Max on this episode is brought to you by Rise25 Rise25. We help businesses connect to their dream 100 relationships by giving to them, we help them do that by running your podcast. And you know, Tucker, for me, the number one thing in my life is relationships, I always want to give to my relationships. And I found no better way personally, over the past 10 years than having the people and the companies I admire on my podcast. And you do the same thing with books, which it’s not just about content. It’s not just about relationship is also about helping people leave a legacy because it continues on past this thing. And your kids will watch stuff that you do your grandkids, your great grandkids this stuff, whether it’s a book or a podcast, it will continue the legacy of your thought leadership and knowledge. Anyone who does it right. So if you have questions about podcasting, go to, learn more. I’ve been doing it for over a decade. Today’s guest is Tucker Max, I’m really excited. I was looking back, I was like, I can’t believe I’ve not had Tucker on the podcast over this amount of time. And we’ve been connected in so many different ways, even through Mixergy. You know, if you don’t know, Tucker, he’s evolved from writing a New York Times best-selling nonfiction in his 20s. So if you can imagine what 20s are like, for maybe a male who likes women, that’s I actually never read the books. Tucker to her. And I know people who read all of your blog posts before they were books and followed all of your work into New York Times best-seller and he sold millions of copies. And now he’s turned from that basket pays in his 20s to family man, Founder of Scribe Media, Scribe Media as a professional public publishing services company. And I describe it to people Tucker is they help you unlock your knowledge and help you produce something you’re really proud of in the form of a book, which again, it’s entrepreneurs, executive experts, and they help you write publish and market your book. And it’s not just your book, as you say, it’s a legacy piece. So yeah, Tucker, thanks for joining me,
