performing better in everything
AdventureCharacterPodcastsRelationships

In the game of life, we are all seeking better performance. Whether that means better performance at our jobs, our relationships, our athletics, or in the bedroom, we want to be better – we need to be better. When it comes to actually achieving that better-ness, we often seek answers and solutions in the wrong direction. In our quest for better performance, we often discount ourselves for validation from someone else. This is no good. The secret to better performance in everything is actually pretty simple:

7 ways your haters are important for your success
CharacterPodcasts

Entrepreneurs know the impact haters can have on their success, and more importantly, look for them as an indicator that they’re on the right track. As an owner of several ventures, I’m always on the lookout for detractors and naysayers because they provide me with motivation that I can’t get from my best cheerleaders. Strange as it may sound, someone looking at your ideas and telling you they’re not possible or impractical or stupid or ridiculous or (fill in the blank) will often light a

tips for improving your marriage
CharacterPodcastsRelationships

There comes a time in every man’s education when he reaches the conclusion that the happiness of those he loves is paramount to his own. It is at this moment that the realness of that man begins to blossom. He becomes more than he’s ever been. He becomes a better listener, a better provider (for himself and others), and a driving force for greater, less trivial things. This is what love does. Every single time. Unfortunately, men often commit when they’re in-love with lust, and in-lust

Every Man Jack Review
Grooming

Back in December, my fiancée brought home a present for me: Natural Cedarwood deodorant from Every Man Jack. This is important to me because I like to smell good, but I also don’t want to have hardcore chemicals clumping up in my pits to make that happen. I’ve tried lots of other natural deodorants and find that many of them are wonderful… that is, until you sweat. They’re either not strong enough to handle a little hard work, or they seem to hold up pretty

how to handle risk
AdventureCharacterPodcasts

This is near and dear to me because I know how to handle risk – risk is my copilot. I venture into what-ifs like they’re going out of style. I wasn’t always that way, and occasionally I’m not as bold or brazen as my brochure would have you believe. Most days I’m ready to take on the world and all its wonder, but because I’m still human, I will have “holy crap, what am I doing” days too. There’s no quick fix for all types

essential rules to dressing like a grown-up
Clothing

It’s a new year and so many resolutions are centered around building a “new you” (for real, this time). Keeping your resolution and coming out victorious can be challenging, to say the least. In my last article and podcast, I talked about the best new years resolution ever, but this time I want to cover some ground rules for dressing like an adult. Maybe you’re a recent graduate and are looking to make a name for yourself in the real world, maybe you’ve finally been

Best New Years Resolution
CharacterPodcastsRelationships

It’s such a cliche to talk about the Best New Years Resolutions, isn’t it? We all know they’re not going stick – well, at least not for the vast majority of us. We’re the same weight and fitness level we were last December, we haven’t made a significantly higher income, that old car is still in the driveway, and we still haven’t manned-up and booked that crazy vacation we know we deserve. So let’s change the game and resolve to do something that’s not only possible,

make yourself more attractive
AdventureCharacterPodcastsRelationships

In the grand scheme of things, a few imperfections don’t make a lick of difference. By the same token, being attractive to whomever you’re trying to influence, makes all the difference in the world. Whether it’s a prospective employer, that woman at the office you can’t stop thinking about, or most importantly, your own self-confidence, you want to be attractive. Today’s podcast is sponsored by Every Man Jack, and is all about making small changes to step up your game and be seen – be

Episode 3: The Dos & Don’ts of Successful Online Dating This has to be my favorite show so far. Aimee Bentson is a good friend of mine, and she’s absolutely perfect for this topic because she’s a gorgeous young single woman in Dallas, and has to put up with men and their online dating shenanigans. She’s a snarky and wildly intelligent leader in the startup community and has just launched her own clothing line at Avyn Apparel. Aimee brings to the table an absolute crap-ton
