99 years old literary agent

December 2, 2020

Fun fact: Steven Pressfield’s literary agent Sterling Lord is 99 years old (!), he is still working (!!) and old enough that he made the original deal for Jack Kerouac’s On The Road novel in 1948 for $900 (!!!). O-M-G.

This whole Marie Forleo’s interview with Steven is pure gold — Steven Pressfield: How to overcome resistance & why talent doesn’t matter (also on YouTube).
