Ryan Holiday — Turning the Tables (#410)

Welcome to The Tim Ferriss Show! It is — usually — my job to sit down with world-class performers of all different types to tease out the habits, routines, favorite books, and so on that you can apply and test in your own life. This time we have a “turning the tables” episode. What does that mean? Well, I will not be the one doing the interviewing. Instead, I will be the one being interviewed by my friend, Ryan Holiday. So who is this Ryan fella? Ryan Holiday (TW/IG: @RyanHoliday) is one of ...

The Best of What I Read in 2019

2019 was a huge year for me.  I rediscovered nature, recommitted to writing, experimented widely, scuttled many things that have weighed on me for years, and greatly improved my overall investing. Most important, I deepened my relationships with my family, my girlfriend, her family, and my closest friends more than in any previous year. 2019 was a year of surprising business growth. But more surprising still, it was a year of developing a greater sense of inner peace, and the two have ra...

Amazon's "The Drop" Will Sell Limited Edition Items Designed By Influencers

As much as we love to shop brick-and-mortar stores, most of the things we buy are from Amazon. In addition to shopping, it's also how we catch up on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, save shelf space (thanks Kindle) and find out the weather without stepping outside (ahem, Alexa). But while we've come to accept that most of our lives are controlled by Jeff Bezos and Jeff Bezos only, there is one area of expertise that he hasn't quite gotten a grasp on... yet.Anyone who's tried to shop for clothes, shoe...

Do Kylie Jenner's Makeup-Free Selfies Point To A Skin-Care Line?

From lots of makeup-free selfies to Instagram Story teasers, let's examine all these clues Jenner is leaving behind.It...

Jeff Bezos accuses National Enquirer parent company of 'extortion and blackmail' over dick pics

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos today took the highly unusual step of publishing correspondence with Trump-allied tabloid publisher AMI, which owns the National Enquirer. The Amazon CEO says this correspondence reveals threats made by AMI to publish nude photos of Bezos, unless Bezos stops criticizing AMI's coverage. Yes, that's a lot to digest. We'll give you a moment. Excerpt from the post titled “No thank you, Mr. Pecker,” which Jeff Bezos just published on Medium.com: Back to the story: Several d...

Will Jeff Bezos Get Half of MacKenzie Bezos’s Fortune in the Divorce?

How much do you think Jeff Bezos will get in the divorce? I haven’t heard anyone ask that. I’ve only read headlines like How Much Could MacKenzie Bezos Get? and How Much Will Jeff Bezos Lose? In the Bezos marriage, the partners are equals. Jeff and MacKenzie started the company together. And they worked side by side. When the company was big and they had four kids, MacKenzie took half the load (kids) and Jeff took half the load (work). Why do people assume Jeff will be doling out money to Mac...

Seek Substance and Not Style

--> In analyzing her success and downfall, a recent article about Lindsay Lohan in Vanity Fair discussed how she really was a great actress but put herself into competition with those much lesser than herself in the Los Angeles social scene: “She became infatuated with being in the press all the time like a Paris Hilton or a Kim Kardashian. It was like she forgot she actually had talent.” “Lindsay was on the A-list and it’s like she was fighting to get onto the D-list,” said the young woman. Wha...

"Bernie Sanders wants to punish businesses for hiring poor people."

Comments John, at Facebook, linking to "Sanders rolls out ‘Bezos Act’ that would tax companies for welfare their employees receive" (Marketwatch).ADDED: From John: "It’s called the 'Stop Bad Employers by Zeroing Out Subsidies Act,' or Stop BEZOS Act. Because politicians expressing their anger at Jeff Bezos for being the richest person in the world is more important than thinking about how our laws will actually affect the poor." But what if he's richest because middle class people are subsidizin...

Avoid the Envy of Others

I am sure you have heard about how Sam Walton used to drive around in an old pickup truck—despite being worth billions of dollars. Warren Buffet lives in a house not worth more than $200,000 and has lived there for thirty-plus years. He also works in the same office he has always worked in, and it is not that nice of an office. For years, Jeff Bezos, the billionaire founder of Amazon.com, drove around in a late-model Honda Accord. Very few people succeed at the level of men like Walton, Buffet, ...

So, some aspects of all of us.In her opening monologue, the first-time host gets ironic when she says that she "never gets to do things like this because I am always cast the 'strong, independent woma...

You Need to Put Yourself in a Monopoly Position

There are organizations and people that create a lot of value and yet do not earn much: The person who cleans my office creates a lot of value. Without the work that they do, my office would be quite messy. The person who sells me gas at the gas station creates a lot of value. Without gas, I would not be able to go to work or drive my children to school. The person who mows my lawn creates a lot of value. Without the work that this person does, I would be spending a few hours a week mowing ...
