A Comedy Self-help Podcast to Make Life Suck Less!

May 22, 2020

This week, Lisa and Misty cover Love Is Not Enough by Mark Manson.

Here is a bit about the author in his own words, right from this audible original: "My name is Mark Manson. I’m the New York Times bestselling author of THE SUBTLE ART OF NOT GIVING A FUCK and EVERYTHING IS FUCKED: A BOOK ABOUT HOPE. Most people don’t know this about me, but before Subtle Art took off and I became a huge, fancy author, I primarily gave relationship advice. 12 years ago, I started a blog. It was a blog about my own dating life. I didn’t expect anyone other than my guy friends to read it. I just wanted a place where I could write out some of my own confused experiences and figure out what the hell I was doing wrong. To my surprise, other young men started following along and reaching out to me. As it turned out, they had similar issues and insecurities as I did. They asked questions, and being a good little blogger, I went in search for answers. Those answers brought more readers and more questions, which brought more answers, and more readers, and so on. Fast forward seven years and I was making a full-time living writing relationship advice to millions of readers across the world. It was like I was the millennial Dear Abby who happened to say 'fuck' a lot.”

Well, there you have it folks.
