Tucker Max: Scribe Media Founder
When people think about Tucker Max, they usually envision the founder of Scribe Media; however, prior to this, he went to school to become a lawyer. After finishing school, he realized that he did not particularly enjoy practicing law. He believes the field forces you to sell your soul if you want to enjoy success, which he was not willing to do.
Even though lots of people are worried about what will happen if they do not put their advanced degree to use, Max knew that he did not want to spend his life doing something he hated. Therefore, he tried to get out before he got in too deep. He moved to Hollywood for two years, which he also hated, as he felt like he was spending time around people who were nothing like him. Eventually, he decided that his calling was to found Scribe Media, which was the first stepping stone to get him where he is today.
His next step was to start a blog on his own website, which is tuckermax.com, where he founded a new genre that is now called “fratire.” Originally used by Warren St. John, a writer for the New York Times, this is the best way to describe Tucker’s style of writing.
On his website, Max pokes fun at himself a lot, mocking the life he once led in his 20s. In addition, his website has become popular because of his unique sense of humor. Finally, Max always discusses that he has been both blessed and cursed to tell the truth to people no matter what.
A Unique Approach: Tucker Max and Scribe Media
The original reason why Tucker Max went to law school was to become someone who could help people. He realized that this was going to be a lot harder than he thought. Fortunately, he now gets to do exactly that as he works for Scribe Media. A lot of his clients are shocked because he asks them to read their books out loud. While this might seem like an unconventional approach, it is actually very important. When someone is actually forced to speak out loud, they can pick up on errors in their writing that they might have otherwise overlooked. It is this type of dedication to his clients that has made Tucker Max the success that he is today. It has also driven Scribe Media to the top of the industry. Tucker Max has written 4 New York Times best-selling books, including ‘I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell’.
The Drive To Change: Discussing the Core Principle of Buddha
Tucker Max has always worked to free himself from the chains of a “typical” career and, after four decades, he has finally done that, as he has founded Scribe Media. He follows Buddha’s Core Principle, which states that you must do your work first before you can help others do theirs.
In following this principle, Tucker Max has become the person he is today. He knows that real change can be hard; however, he knows that people need to change themselves if they would like to change the world. Now, Tucker Max spends his time pursuing his true calling. This has led him to become a best-selling New York Times author four separate. All of this, and more, is discussed on The POZcast with Adam Posner, one of the newest episodes released.
