My Free, The Stoic Guide to Navigating Troubled Relationships and Toxic People Course

The best way to learn how to navigate troubled relationships, difficult people, and insults, and communicate effectively is to take my relationship course on Stoic Handbook +. If you don't have a subscription, you can sign up for a 7-day free trial. You are welcome to cancel during the trial so you don't have to pay for it if it doesn't seem to help.

"Excellent course! I found the teachings and techniques so helpful and interesting that I finished the course in one day! Jon presents the information in a succinct and easy-to-understand form. I will definitely be returning from time to time to relisten as a reminder of the tools available to us when dealing with difficult people, or just to use in daily life as well. Thank you, Jon!"
