    The Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu is one of the most incredible and life changing books out there. To me it’s a timeless work that simplifies and clarifies all there is when it comes to understanding our own spirituality and connection with the world we live in. I have brought its teachings back to my own religion and have an entirely different perspective, which I believe to be more holistic and free than before. Ezra’s wonderful quote was in fact from verse 17 of the Tao Te Ching, but Sun Tzu’s The Art of War is another classic that teaches awesome techniques in dealing with conflict, either physically or in other personal, metaphorical forms of ‘war’.

    The Tao Te Ching and the Art of War have so much depth to them, and they seem to relate to just about every aspect of life, in my opinion. These are works whose teachings can slot anywhere into peoples’ lives regardless of culture or religion and I highly recommend these reads.

    Oh yeah and great podcast! Very inspirational as always; thank you very much.

  • Thanks Siggi!

    Ezra, one question: does it make sense to join your Brownbox formula now? We have a webshop project idea for a specific product and specific market, I thought your know how and coaching could give a big boost to the project, but we are probably a bit too late. What do you think?

    • Hi Istvan!

      The course is evergreen so it will be relevant to your eCommerce business. I highly recommend checking it out.
