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

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,

Episode 3: The Dos & Don’ts of Successful Online Dating This has to be my favorite show so far.

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

I lost my dad
CharacterPodcastsRelationships

This is a written stream of consciousness as a processing and coping exercise. I may change verb tenses, include details that aren’t needed, or make very little sense along the way. I just lost my dad, and writing is my greatest mechanism for dealing with it. If you can handle the first-person, present-tense narrative, please read on. Update 10/22/2017: I went to an event yesterday and heard Tony Robbins speak. One of the exercises he had us do was to meditate on a moment we

Business Casual Style – is that an oxymoron? In a past life, I was a cubic-jockey in the business casual hell of Corporate America. Since escaping, I’ve been helping gentlemen discover their own style inside a system that promotes a level of dress just above blatant laziness – especially in men. Provided you don’t wear jeans and your shirt has a collar, you can pretty much get away with anything, right? No. That’s not right at all. You want to make an effort to look

How to Propose Like a Gent. There comes a moment in most relationships where you feel this overwhelming rush of “knowing” course through you.

You should do the

There are companies and organizations all over the world that have the best intentions, but lack the marketing chops to make a real dent in the earth.
