They help entrepreneurs, executives, and experts write, publish, and market their books because it’s not just a book: it’s your legacy. Scribe Media has worked with clients including David Goggins, Tiffany Haddish, Nassim Taleb, and more. Before founding Scribe Media, Tucker wrote a New York Times best-selling non-fiction book about the sex-filled and drunken escapades of his 20s. Since then, he has gone on to publish many more books, making him a 4x New York Times best-selling author. In this episode… Have you ever read a book about how to solve a problem, and it felt like the creator was giving out their trade secret? Some people will try to use that information to solve the problem themselves — and succeed. However, many of us will prefer to outsource and hire the author instead. Why so? The answer lies in the power of knowledge sharing. Through knowledge sharing, you can build and scale your company just like Tucker Max is doing at Scribe Media. Tucker is happy to share his knowledge on book publishing, growing your company, and finding success as a writer. Here's what to expect: On this episode of the Inspired Insider Podcast with Dr. Jeremy Weisz, you'll learn about developing and scaling a company from the Founder of Scribe Media, Tucker Max. Tucker reveals why he needed to write a book about the process of writing, and how it helped him market and build his company. Plus, he discusses why writing a book is a savvy and revenue-generating move, and how you can achieve those same profitable results. Stay tuned.

#145 The real reason you haven't written that book yet with Tucker Max
The Unconventionalists with Mark Leruste
*Deep breath* This special episode of The Unconventionalists podcast with Tucker Max, 4x New York Times Bestselling Author and Co-Founder of Scribe Media who has sold over 4 million copies of his books, is by far the most vulnerable and raw episode I've released to date. As you will see, sh*t got deep, real fast. The interviewer became the interviewee as Tucker coached and helped me realise just how much some of my childhood trauma has been getting in the way of me writing me next non-fiction book. It's raw, it's uncomfortable and yet I know this is the kind of conversations that made me want to start The Unconventionalists podcast back in 2015. We talked about what you can do to get over your limiting beliefs and why the very reason you're struggling with writing your book is the very reason why you need to write that book. We also talked about how every single author you know struggles with the same doubts and insecurities as you do. It's a universal experience of being human. Trust me, if you've been thinking of writing a book but are currently stuck or procrastinating with no end in sight, this episode is for you. In this episode you will learn why writing a book is not about knowing the ins and outs of how to actually write a book, but rather, why it's about facing your feelings and emotions that every author dreads to face. But as Joseph Campbell once said, “The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.” Tucker even shares his own personal journey and what has helped him to date get over some of his childhood trauma as well as read parts of his personal journal on what he sees for 2021. ⚠️ Warning: this episode contains descriptions of sexual violence and strong language that some viewers may find disturbing. Viewer discretion advised as not suitable for children. I really can't wait to read your comments on this powerful conversation and more importantly, learn what you're taking away and will implement to transform your life and business. If you found this conversation helpful, please share it with one friend who needs to hear this to move forward with their book (or creative project). Thank you and here's to being willing to be vulnerable in public.

Tucker Max: THE SEQUEL. Once we stopped ranting on "Gastliting" and "insanity", we finally went into our favorite topic: WRITING and Self-Publishing! Tucker helped me brainstorm ideas for my bestselling book, "Choose Yourself" and he is a founder of Scribe Media, a unique publishing company that has helped writers from Tiffany Haddish to David Goggins and more write their books. We looked into different genres of books, and why memoirs are the easiest, and often the most successful. “No one reads your book to learn about you, they read your book to learn about themselves. But the way they learn about themselves is through your honest and vulnerable expressions of your emotions and experience.” – Tucker Max I write about all my podcasts!
