The Obstacle is the Way:
The Timeless Art of Turning Trials Into Triumph

There really is a formula for success and tonight, media strategist and former American Apparel director of marketing Ryan Holiday is going to reveal it to us. Join us as we learn the secret to turning obstacles into opportunities and impossibility into triumph. 

We are stuck, stymied, frustrated. But it needn't be this way. There is a formula for success that's been followed by the icons of history--from John D. Rockefeller to Amelia Earhart to Ulysses S. Grant to Steve Jobs--a formula that let them turn obstacles into opportunities. Faced with impossible situations, they found the astounding triumphs we all seek.

RYAN HOLIDAY is a media strategist and prominent writer on strategy and business. After dropping out of college at nineteen to apprentice under Robert Greene, author of The 48 Laws of Power, he went on to advise many bestselling authors and multiplatinum musicians. He served as director of marketing at American Apparel for many years, where his campaigns have been used as case studies by Twitter, YouTube, and Google and written about in AdAge, the New York Times, and Fast Company.
