“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson
Once upon a time, Michael Malice was failing at office politics and pretentious small talk. So he fixed that problem not by forcing himself to get better at skills he didn’t sincerely value, but by finding a context where his true personality and professional skills could thrive: writing.
“Michael Malice is a New York based author and ghostwriter. He is the co-author of books with D.L. Hughley, Michael Fazio, Matt Hughes, and others. He is the co-creator and founding editor of the humor blog Overheard in New York. He is also the author of the Dear Reader: The Unauthorized Autobiography of Kim Jong Il. Malice’s early life was the subject of Harvey Pekar’s biography Ego & Hubris: The Michael Malice Story. Since 2014, Malice has been a regular guest on the Fox Business show The Independents.”
Malice joins me this week to talk about his thoughts on failure along with a few lessons he’s learned along the way. Check out the video or audio of our conversation below.
