Editor’s Note: I’m pleased to feature this interview with author and marketing pro Ryan Holiday as part of the Winning Edits Expert Interview Series.
Ryan is a media strategist, adviser to bestselling authors, writer, and Director of Marketing at American Apparel.
Many of his in-depth, thought-provoking articles have been published on Tim Ferriss’s blog.
He writes for his own site, www.RyanHoliday.net, where he tries to talk about the things that he wishes blogs would talk about more often: life, dealing with assholes, how to be self-critical and self-aware, humility, philosophy, reading and strategy.
Matt Gartland: Your Stoicism 101: A Practical Guide for Entrepreneurs article (published on Tim Ferriss’s blog) was my first interaction with you and your writing. Consequently, it was also my first interaction with formal Stoic teachings. I was an instant fan.
