Thoughts on Marketing, Business and Success with Ryan Holiday

I've been listening to the No Jumper interviews and have been following the vlogs for quite a while now. A lot of it is about this weird subculture that I don't quite get.

It makes me feel old, but also makes me want to stay current and pay attention to what the younger people are into --oh geez I sound old too!

In any case, I get a lot of good business insights from Adam Grandmaison's commentary and thoughts from his vlogs and podcasts. He's also a pretty good interviewer. One of the latest videos/podcasts I got a chance to listen to was the interview with Ryan Holiday.

Ryan Holiday is the author of a very popular book about marketing called: Trust me I'm Lying: Confessions of a Media Manipulator. We have discussed this book in many groups I belong to and it's always an interesting talk.

It's very interesting to listen to Ryan talk about how the media finds, promotes and elevates certain stories. He shares some of his experience in writing other books, being super successful before 30, and also explains how his marketing agency works.

There are so many lessons to pick up from this for any online marketer. I recommend you watch the video, or at least put it on the background and listen to it.

I have to say that I'm not completely on board with his thoughts on working for free, but I do agree that creative types need to work for free until they don't have to. Pay attention to that part of the podcast.

As a side note, I recommend you check out the No Jumper Youtube channel (or podcast) for some interesting, raw and honest opinion on business, marketing, social media and pop culture.

Ryan Holiday has now published a few more books, in total he has published: Trust me I'm Lying, Growth Hacker Marketing, The Obstacle is The Way, The Daily Stoic and Ego is The Enemy.
