Episode 1: Make an Impression with Holiday Party Etiquette It’s that time of year again, where companies cut loose and hold holiday parties to reward their employees for jobs well done, and to celebrate the season. Many men find themselves making mistakes and leaving a poor taste in their wake. This is an opportunity to step up your game, gentlemen, and I have 5 easy ways you can take it to the next level this holiday season. Take your style and confidence to a new

I was recently invited to the Guardians of the Glenlivet presentation when they came through Dallas. I was already a Guardian, but who am I to turn down free whisky and conversation? As a man that enjoys his
One of the many great things about being a man is having know-how and initiative, right? You’re damn right. As the years have passed, many men have started knowing how to do less things. The notion of being “handy” occasionally feels like it belongs on the endangered species list. Not on my watch. I have built engines, torn apart suspensions, MacGyver’d systems to fix the unfixable, and more, and I’m not about to let us all continue this mechanical decline without a fight. Many of the
There is often a misconception when it comes to bringing alcohol to different social gatherings. What’s the best drink to bring to a party? Should bring anything at all? Beer or wine? Both? Food as well? It’s all a lot to keep balanced! As discussed in a previous post, you definitely want to bring a gift to the host of whatever social gathering you’re attending. This gift is most often an alcoholic item, but depending on the event, it can also extend to food dishes
The days are long, the sun is bright, and the mercury is steadily rising. This can mean only one thing: Summer is here. With that, barbecues, parties, and social gatherings are right on her heels. Arguably the greatest season on Earth, Summer brings out the best opportunities to let loose, relax, and explore. Don’t be fooled, however. Summer has led gentlemen astray with her siren song for eons. She whispers, “go ahead and have another Long Island, you’re only getting funnier” in the ears of all
Let’s be completely honest with each other for a moment. We are full of excuses. The reasons you don’t hit your goals, whether they’re fitness, financial, personal, or professional, is because you’ve got an excuse for everything that gets in your way. You’re not alone. This is why over 70% of new years resolutions involve going to the gym, but three week into January the place is once again empty. The excuses that you can’t afford a gym membership, don’t have the right equipment at
I came across this amazing infographic regarding the death of manners, and how modern man is contributing to the slow, painful death of them. As an added bonus, the infographic includes zombies! Zombies, obviously, are the most mannerless creatures around, which made them perfect for giving you something to chew on… Courtesy of: http://www.schools.com I’m sure you know someone that could use this graphic, so please share! You never know, it might be the best thing to happen to the people around him/her.

Boldness is one of the greatest qualities a man can possess in his arsenal. Boldness when it comes to standing firm when needed, and moving forward when it feels most difficult. Sometimes boldness is found when there’s nothing left to lose. It’s the age-old story: a man down on his luck, pushed against the ropes, comes out of nowhere, puts it all on the line, and swings for the fences… and wins. Think about your life for a moment. How many rules are you following
“The well-traveled man tells better stories, draws more connections, and even knows more interesting toasts than the man who stays at home.” The sense of adventure is alive and well in every single one of us, whether it’s the thrill of the hunt, the hike, or the holiday from work. Some men, however, allow this yearn for exploration run wild, and it changes them forever. Traveling the world is an unfulfilled dream for many men, and here’s why it should go unfulfilled no longer.
