934: The Obstacle is the Way – With Ryan Holiday Pt. 1
Simplified Stoicism from one of our generation’s greatest authors
I’m honored to be speaking with today’s guest, Ryan Holiday. He is a New York Times best selling author with works such as The Obstacle Is the Way, Ego Is the Enemy, and Stillness Is Key. He is largely credited for bringing Stoicism into pop culture and making it accessible for us today. Prior to his career as an author, Ryan served as the CMO of a billion dollar company, but he dropped it all to pursue his passion of writing.
During the interview, we discuss:
- The root of imposter syndrome and ego
- Today’s application of these thousand year old lessons
- How the obstacle becomes the way
- How Ryan got his initial Stoicism
