Stop Scrolling: These Are My Top Medium Pieces
Hey — that’s me^
My name is Richie Crowley. I’ve been writing on Medium for just about two years now and wanted to consolidate the blogs that readers have enjoyed most, with a few personal fav’s, in one place so new arrivals can discover my work more easily.
Chances are you’ve arrived here after reading 1 of 2 blogs:

For $32.43 each month, I can radically transform myself.
The 6 Types Of Questions You Need To Start Asking People
Every new conversation is a discovery call where we qualify each other out. Sounds kinda shitty, but hear me out.
These are the pieces that have performed best on Medium, but, as you’ll come to find out, there’s a lot more to me.
I’m a creator, a shaper, a curious, non-conforming, independent thinker. Most of this is on display at RICKiRICKi, the Creative Projects Firm I founded in 2017, where we work with the individuals and brands that are driving the movements of global culture, from dance music to tattoo, meditation to sober curiosity, and a new masculinity.
Before that, I was a professional athlete having suited up for the United States National Ice Hockey Under-18 Team & The Italian National Team, amongst stints in Austria, France, and North America.
Since then, as you’ll come to read, I’ve changed lanes. Just last summer I rode my bike across American alone and unsupported and a year before that I stopped drinking alcohol. Yup, at 26 I went sober.
That’s enough about me, why don’t I just let my words explain the rest?
