Gents, today, I am joined by my friend and repeat guest, Mr. Steven Pressfield. We talk about his new novel, A Man at Arms, but we also get into so much more including overcoming imposter syndrome, getting past your fears, dealing with procrastination, handling disappointment effectively, and why it’s important to make your concerns real and tangible.
My first podcast with Steven was so popular that I knew we needed to have him back on and this one certainly did not disappoint.

My guest today is the one and only Steven Pressfield. He was on with us several months ago and since I enjoyed the conversation so much and we received so much positive feedback, I knew that we needed to have him back on to talk about his latest release, A Man at Arms, and the value, challenges, and rewards of putting your work, whatever it is, out into the world.
He is a New York Times Bestselling Author and has personally been extremely influential in the work that we’re doing here with Order of Man and I could not be more grateful to him and proud to give you round two of our discussion.
