A few months ago, my I saw my friend Dan Andrews share content from a blog called PostMasculine that immediately caught my attention. When I discovered Mark Manson's content, I was amazed by how he had managed to make something that traditionally has been really sleazy with so much class: a blog on dating and seduction. His content is absolutely stellar and the site is growing like wildfire. Here are just a few highlights from our chat:
  • How Mark Leveraged His Group of Friends to Give His First Blog an Initial Boost 
  • Why the Content You Wrote 2-3 Years Ago Will Make You Cringe
  • The Power of Honesty and Vulnerability in Your Content
  • Why You Can't View Your Content as a Commodity
  • An In-Depth Look Into Mark's Writing Process that Causes Him to Be So Prolific
  • Developing a Structure for Your Posts and Writing Without Editing
  • Why Creativity is a Habit - Not Something Like Getting Struck by Lightning
  • Why Mark Abandoned Writing Solely About Dating and Rebranded Himself
  • The Reason Your Business is a Never-Ending Work in Progress
  • The Power of Reading Really Great Literature to Improve Your Voice
  • Why Your Failure Is Not Something Absolute
  • How the Downfall of Your Business Can Lead to Massive Success
  • A Collaborative Project that Mark Sells, But Didn't Write
  • Why Not Having a Product Can Cost You Lots of Money
