Episode 25: What Really Produces Success


Our guest today is Eric Barker (@bakadesuyo), who wrote our current favorite book and Official Selection of The John and Gib Informal Book Club, Barking Up the Wrong Tree: http://amzn.to/2rmF2AC We discuss everything from the meaning of stoicism, to his weird twitter handle. Eric is a writer and researcher who specialized in scientifically proven ways to get more done everyday and find happiness in your life. He busts myths and assumptions about success in personal and professional life that we all, mistakenly, think are true. For more from Eric Barker, check out his blog: http://www.bakadesuyo.com
