Tucker MaxOK, so a disclaimer before this one. If you are easily offended, this interview might not be for you. Be warned there is some, um, graphic language. That being said, for the rest of us, there is a TON to learn from today’s guest, Tucker Max. He is the author of TWO New York Times Best Selling books: I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell and Assholes Finish First. But, more than that, he has one heck of a story.

My goal on RISE is to bring you the stories and exclusive interviews with people successfully pursuing their passions. People that have scratched that itch and made it. With the goal, of course, to inspire you to do the same. And regardless if you love, hate, agree with, disagree with, or want to have a beer with Tucker, there is a great story here about a guy who left the corporate world and went after a big idea of becoming a professional writer. In this interview, he shares how this happened.
