Description

Highly acclaimed NYT bestselling author who has written 12 books, acquired education at some of the top institutions and managed to become a most prolific online content creator, Tom Woods joined me to talk about what gets him out of the bed every day and issues that he struggled with on his way to become an intellectual entrepreneur.

Tom shared some personal stories and he talked about how he dealt with criticism from all sides of the ideological spectrum. We also covered plenty of topics, from academia and public speaking, to how Tom wrote a book on financial crisis in a month, and how to create your own opportunities instead of waiting for them to happen.

  • I’m curious to hear ideas, best practices, and habits or paradigms that other entrepreneurs and business owners find effective when it gets tough and lonely.  Trying to build out your vision, win customers, best competitors, outperform naysayers, motivate partners and employees, and keep a positive energy going all take a toll on you personally.  Sometimes, there’s no one around to help pump you up after you exert a lot of energy pumping up others! How do you keep confident and optimistic?  How do you keep the “eye of the Tiger”?  I’ve got some things that often help me, but I’d love to hear from others what works well for you…

  • Hi All, If you haven’t yet heard of the Life Liberty Advocate program, you might like to check this out: https://lifelibertyadvocates.com/ They have a program where you can earn part-time and full-time income promoting the principles of liberty. I’ve listened to many of their materials and it is some of the best liberty education materials I’ve heard. Anyway, if you are looking for a way to be able to afford to devote more of your time to the cause of liberty, this may be a great opportunity for you. Cheers! Pat

  • I’m an Anesthesiologist and am trying to reach out to other Anesthesiologists in the nation to request their support. This year at the society meeting (over 15K attendees) the ASA has Dr. Michael Portman, an economist, head of the Harvard Business school… as the keynote speaker.  I’d like to counter with an Austrian economist at next year’s conference in Boston.  I’ve corresponded with Tom Woods, and now just need to get the ASA to hear from members and/or attendees, that they’d like the ASA to invite Dr. Woods. I’d be most grateful for any and all help getting ASA members, anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, anesthesia assistants, to contact the ASA and encourage them to invite Dr. Tom Woods. [email protected] even if you could forward my request to folks you believe may be able to assist, I’d be grateful!   thanks!

  • Hi everyone, My partners and I recently opened an online store with liberty-oriented Tees and stickers — www.WryGuys.com — and we’re now exploring our options for marketing and promotion. To date, we’ve started Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts, we’ve done some SEO work, and we’ve also run a handful of banner ads on Antiwar.com and the Libertarian Reddit. (We’re donating a portion of the profits to AW.com and the Future of Freedom Foundation.) My partners and I are exceedingly busy with other responsibilities — i.e., full-time jobs, grad school, families, etc. — so this venture is simply a fun side business for which we have limited time. However, we’re intent on success, and we hope to build a venture that 1) consistently covers its monthly expenses, and 2) provides a source of reliable funding for AW.com and the FFF. The Internet’s awash in opinions about marketing methods and techniques, and we’re newcomers in a notoriously competitive market segment (i.e., Tees and stickers). We want to ensure we’re making wise use of our limited time, so we’re looking for a knowledgeable, liberty-minded marketer with experience appealing to libertarians, AnCaps, Constitutionalists, and Voluntaryists. For now, we’re simply looking for an initial, strategic consultation, but if we find the right person, it could certainly develop into something more. QUESTION: Do you know of someone who fits the bill? If so, please post below, or drop me a line at info AT wryguys.com. Thanks, Scott …
