Episode 544 of “Cool Things Entrepreneurs Do” is a wonderful interview with entrepreneur Tucker Max. You may have heard of Tucker in the past. He came to fame about 19 years ago with a funny email to friends (that went viral) where he lambasted the law firm where he was a summer clerk. He was fired a week later, but not because of the letter (you have to hear the real reason).
Tucker went on to be a famous blogger and book author, highlighting his bad-boy “fratire” lifestyle. But today Tucker Max is a married man, father of three (thinking about a 4th), and a successful business entrepreneur. He is the co-founder of Scribe Media…. an Austin based book writing and publishing company. Having written 12 books, Thom Singer understands what it takes and appreciates the service that Tucker and Scribe provide.
Check out this episode.
