In each episode of this series, I deal with a different group of assholes who may be making things hard for you right now and I’ll give you strategies on how to deal with them.

And I am closing out this 3-part series by sharing strategies and inspiration to help you deal with the most pervasive, rudest, jerkiest, most downright difficult asshole to work with:


The truth is, we put up with a lot of crap from ourselves.

And believe me, I am no exception.

I’ve dealt with self-loathing thoughts like:

I’m not ready.

I can’t do this.

I’ll never reach that kind of success.

I just don’t have what it takes.

And while I still deal with asshole behavior from myself on a daily basis, I’ve learned that I have so much more control and power over myself than I ever thought possible, and I want to share these insights with you today.
