Great podcast about masculinity and self improvement. Not the typical aggressive redpilled podcast that youd expect to get but rather how to lead and cultivate great values within yourself, your family and at work.

SURESH MADHAVEN | The Role of Men in a Fatherless Society
01:21:09

If you turn on the news or any social media apps, you’re likely to be met with a myriad of fantastic headlines, the latest political scandal, racial tensions, violence, or any number of issues these outlets use to get our attention. Of course, most of this is exaggerated to get us worked up without providing any real solutions to some of the issues that actually exist.

My guest today, Suresh Madhaven, and I begin to break down some of these issues and work towards unpacking and discussing solutions rather than focus on the outrage that is used against us. We talk about the importance of men’s rites of passages, breaking down the concept of systemic racism, crying wolf on the real issues, movements against masculinity, and the role of men in a fatherless society.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • A boy’s coming-of-age
  • Defining systemic racism
  • The term “white privilege”
  • The real victims of racism
  • The greatest lie being told
  • The lack of police training
  • Steps to avoid the police

JAMES ALTUCHER | How to Skip the Line and Get Ahead Faster
01:14:30

We’ve all heard people say, “You’ve got to pay your dues” or the concept of the 10,000-hour rule. But what if it didn’t have to be that way? What if you could skip the line, so to speak, and accelerate the results of your life while everyone else stands in line simply waiting for their turn.

That’s what my guest today, the one and only James Altucher, and I discuss – how to use the concept of 10,000 experiments, not 10,000 hours. We talk about why “stay in your lane” is bad advice, how to become the top 1% in your field much more efficiently, how to become an idea-generating machine, harnessing the power of “idea sex,” and how to creatively add value to others so you can win faster.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Why you should NOT stay in your lane
  • Caring what the right people think
  • The Concept of 10,000 hours

MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY | Greenlights
01:04:42

Most of you are probably aware of Matthew McConaughey and his new book, Greenlights. I’ll admit, I was a bit hesitant to read the book myself (I explain why to Matthew in this podcast), but after hearing from enough people that I had to read it, I decided to pick up a copy and, let me tell you, it did not disappoint.

So, when I had the opportunity to have Matthew join me on the podcast, I jumped at the chance. We talk about many important topics in this conversation and really hit on fatherhood as we’re approaching Father’s Day. We also discuss the power of being the underdog, reinventing yourself, the value of sacrifice, taking our fathers off pedestals they don’t belong, and the concept and benefit of greenlights.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Gambling and investing in yourself
  • Having the choice to be a victim
  • Putting your father on a pedestal
  • Rituals and initiations with your child
  • Living in complacency and comfort
  • Why American needs a civics class
  • The value of playing the long game

KYLE CARPENTER | Live Worthy of Our Fallen
01:57:16

Men, I wanted to do something special today as next Monday is Memorial day and, after serving time in the military myself, I know how crucial it is that we remember our fallen warriors and honor the ultimate sacrifice they made to protect and preserve our way of life.



So, I invited my friend and the youngest living Medal of Honor Recipient, Kyle Carpenter, back on the podcast to talk about his military service, transitioning from the military, and ultimately living a life worthy of the sacrifices of so many. If you don’t know Kyle’s story, he was as close to death as one person could be after jumping on a live grenade in Afghanistan to save his fellow Marines.

All I ask is that you have a listen and stop sometime this week to think about how you are living your life and the millions of men and women who have died so that you can.

TRENT PRESZLER | Little and Often Soon Becomes Great
01:20:24

As many of you know, in January of this year, my oldest son and I started building a canoe. As we embarked upon this project, many of you introduced me on Instagram to a professional boat builder named @trentpreszler.

Fortunately, Trent and I built a relationship as he shared with me some of his own successes and failures. And, when I found out he had a new book coming out called, Little and Often, I knew that I needed to have him on the podcast.

Today, Trent and I talk about why he decided to build a canoe with the tools his dad left him, what the canoe symbolizes and how important it has been throughout the history of the world, why we place our fathers on pedestals they don’t belong, becoming your own man, why our scars are important, and how little and often soon becomes great.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Taking pride in building a boat
  • Being part of a long history
  • A symbol of self-reliance
  • Feeling a sense of value
  • Leading to extraordinary 
  • On the road to freedom
  • Finding purpose in your life
  • Getting back to the adventure
  • Knowing where you came from
  • The pedestal of fatherhood
  • Having empathy toward your father
  • Plowing through uncertainty 
  • Feeling a sense of belonging
  • Adding up to a man
  • Forging your own identity 
  • Becoming more than a side hustle

TRENT PRESZLER

My guest today is a man I was introduced to by many of you when I began our canoe-building project in January of this year.

His name is @trentpreszler and he is a professional boat builder. Many of you have probably seen his works of art (I call them that because they’re absolutely beautiful) which are actually tools that men have been utilizing for thousands of years to improve their station in life.

Trent is the CEO of Bedell Cellars, a winery in Long Island, New York but in 2014 he began a new path as he built his first canoe with his rancher father’s tools. Since then, Trent has been building beautiful luxury canoes which, admittedly, is not a path he thought he would find himself on.

Trent has become a friend of mine and someone who is extremely insightful. And, as strange as it may sound, I believe we were destined in a way to connect.

BATTLE PLANNING APP

Many of you are familiar with our Battle Planner which I developed nearly 5 years ago and have been refining since then. But what you may not be familiar with is the new Battle Planning App that we just released that has turned in our written planner into something that you can carry with you wherever you go in the palm of your hand.

The Battle Planning App will walk you through everything you need to do to make more of the next 12 weeks than most people do all year and, with a daily non-negotiable and daily task section, it will become your one-stop planning, organizing, and strategizing tool.

JACK CARR | The Devil’s Hand
01:04:50

One of my favorite podcast guests and friends is back on the podcast today. His name is Jack Carr, former Navy SEAL and the author of the James Reece series with his latest book just released called The Devil’s Hand.

Today, Jack and I talk about the differences between a calling and a career, dealing with discouragement from others, the conditioning that takes place in society and how to overcome it, Joseph Campbell’s, The Hero’s Journey, and how to utilize it in your own life.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Prioritizing opportunity
  • Creating powerful relationships
  • Career versus profession
  • Preparing to be an author
  • Making things possible
  • Working with Chris Pratt
  • Your next calling in life
  • Getting into character 
  • The power of social media
  • Getting the job done
  • Dealing with internet trolls

JACK CARR

As I mentioned previously, my guest today is the one and only Jack Carr. I met Jack years ago when we had a podcast during the release of his first book after retiring as a Navy SEAL.

I could tell you a bunch about his books and how successful he is but what you may not know is he’s one of the most genuine men you’ll meet. He invited me into his home, introduced me to his beautiful family, and broke bread with me like we were old friends.

And, since then, we have become friends and it’s been incredible to see him become so successful as an author with one of his books being filmed right now with Chris Pratt playing the role of James Reece (which we talk a bit about in this podcast).

PREPARING FOR DESTRUCTION

It’s no surprise to you that the last 12 months or so have been…eventful, to say the least. That’s why with as many variables that we, as men, are likely to face, it’s crucial that we be prepared for whatever may come.

After all, David Gilmore said, “The real man gains renown by standing between his family and destruction absorbing the blows of fate with equanimity.”

And, that’s exactly what we’re talking about in the Iron Council this month. We’re learning, discussing, and challenging each other to become more prepared for emergencies, natural disasters, violent encounters, and anything else we may potentially run against.

If you want to learn more about being prepared and banding with men who will teach you and hold you accountable for doing so, join us in our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council by going to www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

JACK DONOVAN | Men and Gods
01:17:11

My guest today is the one and only Jack Donovan. I’ve been honored to get to know him over the past several years and much of what he has shared regarding men and masculinity has shaped my own personal perspective of how we are to show up as fathers, husbands, and leaders in our business and community.

Today, we talk about his latest book, Fire in the Dark. We also do a deep dive into the roles of masculinity, individual responsibility, the heroic ideal, and why we as men look to the Gods and what we can learn from them.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Writing about men’s issues
  • Adding value to others
  • Different voices for different ears
  • What defines masculinity 
  • The eternal truths
  • Biological constructs
  • Rational division of labor
  • Gender theory studies 
  • The slippery-slope fallacy 
  • Taking over a culture
  • Learning to be technical
  • Identifying weakness
  • Settling for mediocrity
  • Self-imposed shackles 
  • The collapse of Moral consensus 
  • Forming a responsible opinion

JACK DONOVAN

As I said earlier, my guest today is none other than Jack Donovan. Fortunately, I’ve gotten to know Jack over the past several years and we’ve spent a lot of time talking about masculinity and what it means to be a man.

I was introduced to his work years ago when I read, The Way of Men, and since then, I’ve been fascinated with his interesting and unique perspectives, and his willingness to share what have only increasingly become polarizing thoughts and ideas.

Jack is an extremely fascinated man and has caused me to take a hard look at what I perceive as the responsibilities of men, what it means to be a man, and how we can and should show up in the world.

You guys are really going to enjoy this one.

PREPARING FOR A DISASTER

I think most of us pride ourselves on being prepared to deal with what life has to offer us. After all, it was Douglas Wilson who said, “The real man gains renown by standing between his family and destruction, absorbing the blows of fate with equanimity.”

But the question remains, “Are you really prepared for what may come your way?”

That’s the question we’re working to answer this month in our exclusive brotherhood, The Iron Council. We’ll be discussing and challenging each other to focus on the priorities of preparedness, shoring up our weaknesses, and holding each other accountable to put ourselves and our families in a better position should disaster strike.

And, on top of all that, you’ll get the accountability, guidance, and direction when you band with us inside the Iron Council.

To get prepared for whatever life may throw at you and to unlock access to the accountability needed to thrive, learn more and join us at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

RENER GRACIE | Comfort in Chaos
01:18:58

As many of you know, several years ago, I immersed myself in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and, frankly, it’s been one of the best things I’ve done for myself in my entire life. And, today, I am joined by a man who has done a tremendous job in getting the art to the masses by codifying a system of learning Jiu-Jitsu that has trained and developed tens of thousands of martial artists.

His name is @renergracie, a 4th-degree black belt, the grandson of Helio Gracie, and the founder and chief instructor of Gracie University. We talk about the system he and his brother created, the differences between sport BJJ and combat BJJ, building legacies, training our police force to handle themselves, and how to develop a level of comfort in chaos.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The starting point of Jiu-Jitsu
  • Becoming the exception 
  • Knowing when to strike
  • Doing things the right way
  • The only fight that matters
  • A product of savagery 
  • Cracking the code
  • The art of violence
  • The Police Disappointment Gap
  • Spreading the word
  • The Bully-Proof program
  • Enforcing boundaries
  • Expressing dissatisfaction 
  • Understanding the consequences

RENER GRACIE

My guest today is Rener Gracie. He is the grandson of the man who brought Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to America, Helio Gracie. He is a 4th-degree black belt and is the founder and lead instructor of Gracie University where he has instructed thousands of men, women, and children in the art of BJJ.

He’s also extremely innovative and forward-thinking and has created programs specifically designed for law enforcement, women, and children (through their Gracie Bullyproof program).

In addition, he trains many top-level fighters including UFC’s Brian Ortega. Needless to say, the man knows what he’s doing and he comes from a long line of very capable and proficient tacticians. 

ACCOUNTABILITY

Most of the men who join our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council, do so to gain some level of accountability. In fact, that is one of the main reasons I started the organization.

But with as many men who are looking for some level of accountability from the programs, masterminds, and brotherhoods, they participate in, few offer as much accountability as we have built into the Iron Council.

When you band with us, not only will you get access to the 820+ men who belong to the Iron Council but you’ll also have the opportunity to join a Battle Team of 15 men who will hold your feet to the fire.

And, with the addition of our new Battle Planning App (included in membership), you’ll have the metrics and data needed to achieve at every aspect of your life.

If you’re looking for added accountability in your life and you want the tools and systems needed to thrive, join us at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

ETHAN SUPLEE | American Glutton
01:12:16

My guest today is Ethan Suplee. You may know him from his acting roles on Remember the Titans, American History X, and Without a Paddle. But if you saw him today, you likely wouldn’t recognize him. That’s because he’s transformed not only his physical appearance but every element of his life.

Today, we talk about his journey to lose over 250 pounds, what it’s like to be severely obese in Hollywood and how many people had a vested interest in him being unhealthy, why who you listen to is so crucial on your self-development journey, adding meaning to challenging self-work, and overcoming a sense of complete powerlessness.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Choosing your perspective
  • Being seen as the “fat guy”
  • Avoiding the attention
  • Living an active lifestyle
  • Admitting powerlessness
  • Going to the extreme
  • Confronting your bad habits
  • Finding moderation 
  • Crawling out of a hole
  • Living with intention 
  • Experimenting with new things

ETHAN SUPLEE

My guest today is none other than Hollywood Actor, husband, father, and host of the American Glutton Podcast, Ethan Suplee.

Many of you have seen Ethan in Remember the Titans, Butterfly Effect, American History X, Without a Paddle, and so many more movies but, more recently, he’s gained a lot of visibility and attention by embarking on his own health journey by losing over 250 pounds and, frankly, getting jacked.

I really enjoyed this podcast because Ethan is such a humble person and he’s taken his years and years of struggle and not only used it as fuel for his own life but fuel for helping others transform themselves primarily through his podcast, American Glutton.

THE POWER OF BROTHERHOOD

Obviously, we’re talking today about making radical changes in our lives and, personally, what I’ve found to be one of the greatest tools in doing that is having strong, capable, successful men in your corner.

And, that’s exactly what you’re going to get when you band with us in the Iron Council. You’re going to immediately connect with over 800 men who want to win, want you to win, and are actually doing something about it.

I’ll admit that when you join us, it’s a bit like drinking from a firehose but we’ve got everything you need to help you improve your health, rekindle relationships, build a business, grow your wealth, and anything/everything else you may want to accomplish.

Join us in the Iron Council. Band with like-minded men. Get on the path.

MADISON CAWTHORN | Uncompromising Values and Service
01:02:47

Today I am joined by an incredible man who just so happens to be the youngest U.S Congressman. His name is Madison Cawthorn and he’s gained a ton of attention over the past several months for, first, his powerful speech at the Republican National Convention and, more recently, his floor speech on 2nd Amendment Rights.

Today, Congressman Cawthorn and I talk about how he views his disability (he is partially paralyzed from a crash he was in years ago) and his masculinity, what he feels is our civic duty to get involved in politics and important topics, the power of words and using them effectively to create change and hope, the danger of the fatherless home crisis we’re in, uncompromising values, and so much more…

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Determining what’s worthy of attention 
  • Getting involved in office
  • Connecting issues to daily life
  • Overcoming discouragement 
  • Pushing for term limits
  • Speaking to the American ethos
  • What it means to be a man
  • Supporting good policy
  • The belief in yourself 
  • Feeling completely useless 
  • Taking care of your family 
  • Having a network of guys
  • Dropping out of college
  • Proving your competence 
  • Getting rid of the nuclear family  
  • Equity Vs. Equality

MADISON CAWTHORN

Gentlemen, my guest today is a man that likely needs no introduction for many of you. At 25, he is currently the youngest U.S. Congressman but, as we talk about in this conversation, he does not let that keep him from throwing himself into some of the most important (and polarizing) discussions in politics today.

What’s even more impressive is that in 2014, his life plans came to a halt as he found himself a survivor of a car accident that left him partially paralyzed. After scrapping his plans to attend the Naval Academy, he found his way into politics as a way to serve in spite of not being able to join the military.

Gentlemen, this was a very powerful conversation with a man who had a lot of reason to quit in life but has, instead, decided to make the most of his circumstances and become a force to be reckoned with.

IRON COUNCIL

By now, you’ve heard all about our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council. One thing that you may not know is that each and every month, we focus on a topic to better equip ourselves as men with the tools and resources we need to succeed and thrive.

And, for the month of April, we’re going to be talking all about being prepared. In the wake of Texas’ power outages, the COVID fallout, and any number of additional events we’re bound to face, it’s crucial that we, as men, get ourselves prepared for what life may throw our way.

If this is something that has been on your mind, join us inside the Iron Council as we all work to better equip and inoculate ourselves against tragic, difficult, and unfortunate life events.

You’ll also gain access to all of the resources available and the brotherhood of men who will help you get the most out of your life.

GRANGER SMITH | Leading and Living Well in the Face of Extreme Adversity
59:02

Gentlemen, there is so much negativity, hostility, and vitriol in the world today. It’s unfortunate because even in the most difficult of circumstances there is so much to be positive about and grateful for. And, as we look for and embrace those factors, life becomes so much more rewarding and fulfilling.

Today, I am joined by country music artist, Granger Smith (we also talk about his alter-ego, Earl Dibbles, Jr.) to talk gratitude, juggling all of our duties and responsibilities, and attaching the right (and empowering) meaning to events. We also talk about the tragic loss of Granger’s son and how he continues to lead his family through one of the most difficult situations imaginable – losing a child.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Granger’s new upcoming video
  • Benefiting from hard work
  • Overcoming negativity 
  • Developing a successful career
  • Managing at a larger level
  • Getting asked the right question
  • Harnessing social media
  • Having a grateful attitude 
  • Living in the moment
  • How to juggle life
  • Balancing grief and loss
  • The support of a community
  • Assigning meaning to your work 
  • Not taking life too seriously 

GRANGER SMITH

Gents, my guest today is an absolutely incredible man. His name is Granger Smith.

He is an extremely successful country music artist, host of the Granger Smith podcast, and co-creator of his alter-ego, Earl Dibbles, Jr., the spokesman for his clothing apparel company Yee Yee Apparel.

I’ve been following Granger for years now and I had always been impressed with his positivity and outlook on life and, after our conversation today, I am even more so. We talk about so much today. His positivity, energy, and excitement for life is infectious and it makes me want to be a better man myself. I think it will for you too.

IRON COUNCIL

Having men in your corner cannot be overstated. Too many men have decided to walk through life alone and, oftentimes, they’re left feeling frustrated and overwhelmed with all they have to deal with.

But banding with other men doesn’t make you weak or inferior. If anything, it gives you access to the tools and accountability needed to make you stronger. And, with over 800 men inside our exclusive brotherhood, The Iron Council, you are going to find the type of men you need to thrive inside the walls or your home, business, and in your community.

I know a lot of you have been sitting on the fence on the Iron Council so get off the fence and give it a try. Worst case scenario, you don’t find any value and you leave. But I think you’ll find that when you band with us, every facet of your life is going to improve and you’ll only be asking why you didn’t join us sooner.

He is a New York Times Bestselling Author and has personally been extremely influential in the work that we’re doing here with Order of Man and I could not be more grateful to him and proud to give you round two of our discussion.

THE ART OF IMPOSSIBLE

Gents, inside the Iron Council for the month of February, we’re talking about how to craft your day but for the month of March, we’ll be covering “The Art of Impossible” and uncover how you can turn your dreams, ideas, and ambitions into reality.

We’re going to be discussing and challenging each other how to learn more effectively, how to enter your best work in a “flow state,” and how to harness creativity for maximum results. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in and you want the powerful accountability that comes from banding with other men, join us inside the Iron Council at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

ROBERT GREENE | The Laws of Power and Human Nature
01:12:10

If only more of us, as men, learned more about the laws of power and the dynamics of human nature, we’d be able to lead others more effectively. Unfortunately, many men believe that even exploring these concepts is an immoral pursuit. And, although they can be used to hurt others, they can also be used to fulfill our responsibilities to protect, provide, and preside.

Today, I am joined by multiple New York Times Bestselling Author, Robert Greene to talk about the negative stigma that comes with power and human nature dynamics. We also cover embracing weirdness, what he refers to as “power games,” how life isn’t always a win-win, why so many people have incorporated whining as a tactic for power, and why manipulation isn’t inherently wrong.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The “Crisis Generation”
  • Finding middle ground
  • Dealing with Woke Culture 
  • Painful opportunities and lessons
  • Why parents have become so afraid
  • How resistance makes you tougher
  • Influencing people
  • Not taking things personally 
  • The Manipulative Side of humans
  •  Getting what you want
  • Changing other opinions
  • Virtue signaling as a strategy
  • The human desire for power
  •  Gain at the expense of another
  • Becoming more enlightened 
  • Asymmetric warfare 
  • Operating outside a moral code


ROBERT GREENE

My guest today is the one and only Robert Greene. Needless to say, his writings and teaching have inspired much discussion and controversy about the laws of human nature and how to harness them effectively.

He is the author of many books including The 48 Laws of Power, The Art of Seduction, Mastery, and The Laws of Human Nature. And, for over 25 years, he’s been researching, studying, and sharing lessons about how people behave and why they do what they do.

This one was a very enlightening discussion and gave me some tremendous insight into not only how Robert’s mind works, but other humans as well.

IRON COUNCIL

Gents, obviously, we’ve been talking a lot about how humans behave and, along those same lines, I’ve found that one of the things we, as men, crave most is other men who are willing and able to walk shoulder to shoulder with us in life.

Of course, there is the camaraderie of brotherhood but the accountability that comes from surrounding yourself with successful men cannot be overstated. That’s why the Iron Council, our exclusive brotherhood, is so powerful.

Inside the Iron Council, you’ll unlock access to the network of men you can count on to push, teach, mentor, and band with you. And, you’ll also find the framework needed to thrive in a world that continues to grow more complex and competitive by the day.

If you’re ready to band with a solid group of men, join us inside the Iron Council at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

EDDIE PENNEY | Living Unafraid
01:15:13

We live in some interesting times, to say the least. Coronavirus, the reaction to Coronavirus, political unrest, freezing temperatures across the country, riots, and so much more. And, unfortunately, rather than meeting these challenges on our feet like men, many have allowed fear to dictate their course of action.

Today, I am joined by former Navy SEAL, Eddie Penney to talk about living life unafraid. We talk about dealing with death, addressing and overcoming the victimhood mentality, equality vs. equity, where morals and values are derived from, and how to live fully in spite of the fear that surrounds us.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The things that people are afraid to talk about
  • The silent majority
  • The trend of a degenerate society
  • Believing in the sanctity of human life
  • Getting on your knees and kissing ass
  • Treating everyone equally
  • The best person for the job
  • Difficult conversations with friends
  • Believing you’re entitled to things
  • Feeling excluded and left out
  • Teaching your children about motivation and drive
  • The discomfort in being selfless
  • There’s no consequence to laziness
  • Standing on your own two feet
  • Socially adjusted kids
  • The “unafraid” movement
  • Addressing the elephant in the room
  • Leading with a mature response
  • Feeling blessed with your circumstances
  • Proving something to yourself
  • Turning things around
  • Fighting for what is right
  • The threat of losing freedom
  • Being manipulated and controlled


EDDIE PENNEY

My guest today is Eddie Penney. He spent 20 years in the military as a Marine initially then a Navy SEAL assigned to Navy Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU), better known as SEAL Team Six.

He’s an absolutely incredible human being and has proven himself to be a tremendous asset in the military, to his children, and in later founding the Contingent Group which is an organization designed to provide safety and security needs for people and organizations domestically and internationally.

THE IRON COUNCIL

I ask every new member of our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council, why they decided to band with us, and, overwhelmingly, it boils down to accountability.

Accountability just isn’t something many men seem to be getting in any other capacity of life. But inside of the Iron Council, we have developed the systems and strategies for maximum accountability to other high-achieving men and, more importantly, accountability to yourself.

And, we’ve found that when a man learns how to harness the power of accountability, he is able to be much more productive, effective, and fulfilled in every other area of his life. Accountability fills the void that many men experience in their lives.

So, if you’re looking to harness the power of accountability in your life, we invite you to join us in the Iron Council at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

Randall is a screenwriter, director, producer, New York Times Bestselling Author, and songwriter. He wrote Braveheart, Man in the Iron Mask, Pearl Harbor, and We Were Soldiers among many other incredible motion pictures, many of which he produced and directed and has won several Academy Awards.

He is an insanely talented individual – far beyond what I knew when we agreed to do a podcast together – and he is deeply reflective and insightful around the subject of men and masculinity.

You guys are going to really enjoy this conversation. It was incredibly powerful and inspiring for me.

IRON COUNCIL

Gentlemen, very quickly, I wanted to introduce you to the Iron Council if you’re not already familiar. Randall and I have talked a bit about in this conversation the power of brotherhood and finding other men who are qualified to be in your corner.

Unfortunately, it seems to be increasingly difficult to find those types of men and develop powerful bonds that will help both of you succeed. That’s where the Iron Council comes into play.

Inside the Iron Council, there are over 800 men who are all like-minded and working towards the same goals and objectives. These are incredibly motivated and ambitious men and they have not only the desire to succeed but to help all the men inside the Iron Council do the same.

TIM KENNEDY | To Protect and Preserve Human Life
01:13:31

My guest today likely needs no introduction. His name is Tim Kennedy and he is one of the most interesting men on the planet. I had the opportunity to talk with Tim remotely years ago but to be able to sit down with him at his home was one of my favorite opportunities since I started podcasting over six years ago.

We get into a lot during our discussion together including his plans to replace traditional education with something that will serve our sons and daughters much better, why he believes there are forms of “toxic masculinity” in society, his thoughts on some sort of “mandatory military service,” why his wife completely believes in him, and his personal mission to protect and preserve human life.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Apogee Acadamy and Apogee Strong 
  • Becoming an FBI profiler 
  • The lies about masculinity
  • Lowering the standard 
  • Thoughts on mandatory service 
  • Fostering culture and commitment
  • To protect and preserve human life
  • How failure impacts us physiologically
  • Finding growth in physical pain
  • A wife's undying support
  • Stepping into the cage

TIM KENNEDY

As I said earlier, my guest today is the one and only Tim Kennedy and he is one of the baddest men on the planet.

He is an Army Ranger Green Beret, a former UFC fighter, and, among so many other things, he is in the process of opening a school that will teach young men and women in ways that are much more conducive to their overall success.

On top of all that, Tim is extremely thoughtful and insightful and has always provided me with a new and/or deeper way of looking at my role as a man.

Men, you are really going to enjoy this conversation. I know that I did.

CRAFTING THE PERFECT DAY

It doesn’t matter what your goals are if you can’t craft a strategy for attacking the day that moves you systematically toward the completion of those goals.

And, inside our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council, we are talking about exactly this – crafting the perfect day – for the month of February. The truth is that I’ve spent years of my life floundering around wondering how I was going to make something of myself. To a degree, I believed that when it was meant to happen, it just would.

It wasn’t until I was introduced to several mentors who explained to me the importance of a powerful morning routine, certain strategies, tactics, and tools to use throughout the day, and how to perfectly recap your day in order to carry the momentum over that I begin to realize what I set out to accomplish.

If you’re interested in learning those exact strategies and formulas that I learned years ago, please join me in the Iron Council at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

EVAN HAFER | A Conversation Amongst Men
02:02:44

You know, I’ve spent the last six years trying to formulate the perfect conversation and keep it within a certain topic. But the more I have conversations with incredible guests like mine today, the more I realize that a real conversation goes where it goes and isn’t confined to a particular topic.

So, when I had the opportunity to sit down with Evan Hafer, founder of Black Rifle Coffee Company, I realized there was tremendous value in letting the conversation go where it wanted to go. We talked about archery, his recent controversy with both the right and left side of the political spectrum, how to lead and manage well, racism, pop culture, and just about everything in between.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Getting into archery
  • Fist adaptive athlete archery shoot
  • Struggling in business
  • Trying not to focus on the negative
  • Getting through trauma
  • The ego-driven mentality
  • Applying communication differently
  • Dictators Vs. Leaders
  • Being the “nice guys”
  • Having productive arguments
  • Communicating your brand
  • Protecting free speech at all cost
  • Big governments “one size fits all” solution
  • The path of least resistance
  • Adding value to other men
  • Being the maximum version of yourself
  • Flexing the creative muscles
  • Earning confidence 
  • Recalling the miserable times
  • Improving things locally

EVAN HAFER

My guest today is the one and only Evan Hafer. Of course, you likely know that he is the founder and CEO of the leading Veteran-Owned coffee roastery, Black Rifle Coffee Company.

But he’s also a former Green Beret and a hardened badass. I had the opportunity to sit down with Evan at his ranch in San Antonio and although I’m sure there are preconceived notions about who he is, this man is a marketing genius and has, in a period of six years grown his company from roasting coffee out of the back of a Humvee to an international brand that employs over 400 people - many of who are United States Combat Veterans.

I think you gentlemen are going to dig this conversation that we, fortunately, got to do in-person on his ranch in Texas. I enjoyed the hell out of this conversation. You will too.

CRAFTING THE PERFECT DAY

Gentlemen, inside the Iron Council, for the month of February, we’re going to talking about and challenging each other to create and formulate our perfect day.

Of course, “the perfect day,” is subjective but we’re going to be holding each other accountable for the entire month to testing and experimenting with systems, strategies, tools, and resources to maximize each day to its fullest – from the time we wake up, to the way we go about our duties, to the way we cap the day to carry momentum over to the next.

The reality is that each of us can squeeze more productivity out of every hour that we have and it’s our goal inside the Iron Council to show you how to do exactly that through accountability, teaching, instruction, and brotherhood.

BEDROS KEUILIAN | Be a Man, Be The Man
01:15:29

In popular culture, it’s increasingly frowned upon to utter the phrases, “man up,” or “be a man.” It’s easy to misconstrue what those terms mean and convenient to dismiss them as some sort of misguided sense of masculinity. Without context, anything can be painted as negative or “toxic.” With context, however, we can see how powerful those statements can be.

My guest and friend, Bedros Keuilian, is back on the podcast to dissect what those phrases mean and teach us how we can incorporate solid principles in our lives and in the lives of the young men looking to us for an example. We talk about the value of harvesting your own provisions, why brutally honest feedback is crucial to your success, losing and regaining your sense of purpose, and our responsibility to the generations of men who will follow in our footsteps.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Fit Body Bootcamp
  • Squire Program
  • Multiple income streams
  • Donating to the Shiners
  • Seeking fulfillment 
  • Feeling like an imposter
  • Being crippled by convenience
  • Valuing what you harvest
  • The responsibility of parents
  • How you show up matters
  • Figuring out the needs of people
  • Receiving brutally honest feedback
  • Why consequences matter
  • The lack of commitment 
  • Turning off social media
  • The “outraged” economy
  • The loss of balance
  • Losing your sense of purpose
  • Becoming a role model

BEDROS KEUILIAN

Gentlemen, I have been looking forward to having Bedros Keuilian join us again on the podcast. I met Bedros years ago and I’m honored to call him a mentor and friend.

I was fortunate enough to have him invite me to speak at one of his programs a couple of weeks ago and, although you may know him for founding and running one of the largest fitness franchises in the world, you may not know about his programs for men and for young men.

These are transformation events and I’m honored to have played just a very small part in what this incredible man is doing in the lives of the men and young men who attend his events.

Bedros is an author, entrepreneur, speaker, podcast host of Empire Podcast, and an absolutely incredible man, friend, and mentor.

CRAFTING THE PERFECT DAY

I’m a huge believer that the way you tee yourself up for the day will determine your results for the day. And, as you compound enough of those powerful days together, you will undoubtedly win.

That said, there are a lot of men (you might be one of them) who don’t know how to craft the day from the minute they wake up to the minute their heads hit the pillow at night for maximum productivity and efficiency.

That’s why, for the month of February, we’re talking about this exact topic inside our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council. We’re going to be talking about starting the day right, tools and systems for eliminating distractions, recapping your day so you don’t lose momentum each night, and so much more.

So, if you want the tools, systems, and accountability to make each day your best and, more importantly, create the success that follows, join us inside the Iron Council at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

STEVEN KOTLER | Making the Impossible Possible
01:13:29

I know that you have lofty and ambitious goals. I do too. I also know that, sometimes, the objectives we desire may seem out of reach, if not impossible. There is a myriad of reasons we may feel this way but regardless of the reasons, they hinder our realized potential.

Today, I am joined by a man who has not only studied making the impossible achievable, he’s spent his life immersed and surrounded by the men who are doing it. His name is Steven Kotler and he is the author of The Art of Impossible. Today we talk about why achievement is an art, not a science, how to develop and trigger your “flow state,” why everyone is wired for peak performance, the power of novelty, and how to create the impossible.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The peak performance mind
  • Conducting your own experiment 
  • Crawl, walk, run
  • The flow source code
  • Reframing pleasure
  • Flow hacking
  • Multi-tool solutions
  • Keeping promises
  • The Bannister Effect
  • Quality matters
  • Cognitive load
  • Building routine
  • Double motivation

STEVEN KOTLER

My guest today is Steven Kotler. I have literally been working on getting him to join us on the podcast for years and today, that becomes a reality.

If you’re not familiar with Steven, he is the author of his latest book, The Art of Impossible, Stealing Fire, The Rise of Superman, and ten other books. He’s an award-winning journalist and the Executive Director of the Flow Research Collective. He’s been featured in the Wall Street Journal, TIME, and The Harvard Business Review.

He’s an extremely fascinating individual and extremely intelligent. Gents, I think you’re going to enjoy this one.

THE IRON COUNCIL

Gentlemen, I don’t think it’s any surprise to you that we’ve started to see a huge crackdown of sorts by the technology giants on anyone who doesn’t toe the line with what is acceptable in the Doctrine of Popular Culture.

And, if you’ve been following us for any amount of time, you know that we talk about – the restoration of masculinity – isn’t a favorite subject of theirs.

With all that said, we’ve created a closed-frame brotherhood of like-minded men where not only can we have the real conversations that need to be had, but we can also challenge either other necessary to do the self-work required to lead ourselves and our families well.

If you’re interested in banding with other men who believe the way you do and are actively working to make themselves better in all ways, join us inside the Iron Council.

You can learn more and band with us at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

HUMBLE THE POET | Levelheadedness in Turbulent Times
01:23:28

As you’re well aware, we live in some very chaotic times of doubt, fear, uncertainty, speculation, and distrust. Unfortunately, times like these lead to irresponsible and overly-emotional reactions which often undermine our very goals and desires.

Today, I am joined by a friend of mine, Humble the Poet to talk about how to keep calm, cool, and collected when faced with the uncertainties of life. We discuss how to self-regulate, the ability to communicate complex ideas simply, becoming a student of the game of life, affording others grace, why fear is unsustainable, and keeping yourself levelheaded in turbulent times.

SHOW NOTES

  • Constant criticism
  • Social antidote
  • Fringe arguments
  • Cultural differences
  • Seeds of distrust
  • The value of life
  • Picking our battle
  • A silver lining
  • Personal responsibility 
  • Guilt and shame
  • The exchange of ideas
  • Don’t lose respect to gain attention. 
  • The attention economy
  • Structured belief
  • Being creative
  • Impacting your community
  • Being exceptional 

HUMBLE THE POET

My guest today is the interesting and unique, Humble the Poet. I had the opportunity to meet Humble when our mutual friend, Steve Weatherford, invited us on a Wim Hof retreat and I was immediately drawn to his collected demeanor and fascinating way of looking at life.

He is a former school teacher turned creative. He’s an author, hip-hop artist, speaker, designer, filmmaker, and a creative consultant for some incredible businesses and movements, including Apple, Warner Bros, and Nike.

I think you guys are going to be drawn to Humble as I was. And, I was really grateful we had the opportunity to discuss these topics as he caused me to look at things in a way I hadn’t recognized before.

IMPOSTER SYNDROME

Imposter syndrome – the sense of feeling inferior, inadequate, and unworthy of a particular pursuit – is something that a lot of men deal with. In many ways, I personally dealt with Imposter Syndrome as I started this movement six years ago.

This month, inside of our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council, this is exactly what we’re talking about and working to overcome. We’ve been discussing the concept, strategies, and tactics for overcoming feeling like a fraud, and actively working on bridging the gap between who we currently are and who we have a desire to become.

If this is something that you’ve dealt with, even to a small degree, I invite you to join the conversation, action, and accountability found inside the Iron Council so that you can overcome feeling like a fake and producing less in your life than you’re capable of.

Head to www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil to learn more and band with us.

CHRIS HOGAN | Money Tips, Tricks, and Tactics for 2021
01:06:27

Money is such a crucial component of every man’s life and, yet, it is one of the most often overlooked and misunderstood factors to a man’s success. I’m not by any means suggesting that money is the only factor to his success but if we're being truthful, understanding the money game and playing it well gives a man more opportunity, freedom, and the potential for fulfillment.

Today, I am joined by my friend and repeat guest, Chris Hogan to talk money moves as we roll into 2021. We cover everything from financial opportunities that will present themselves, the power and importance of building a financial team, getting yourself out of the rat race, why self-awareness is critical for financial success, and plenty of other tips, tricks, and tactics to get ahold of your money situation in 2021.

CHRIS HOGAN

My guest is back by popular demand. His name is Chris Hogan.

And, if you didn’t listen to the first podcast we did together, Chris is a best-selling author, a personal finance expert, and one of America’s leading voices on retirement, investing and building wealth.

His show, The Chris Hogan Show has been downloaded millions of times. Chris is also a regular contributor to the EntreLeadership Podcast and is a member of the Ramsey Solutions team.

But more importantly that all of that, Chris has a tremendous ability to breakdown complex financial topics into easy-to-digest/apply practical information that will help you thrive. Enjoy.

THE IRON COUNCIL

Men, we’ve had a lot of men join our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council, over the past two weeks. This was to be expected as many of you are really focused on improving your life in 2021 and gaining access to the tools, frameworks, and accountability needed to thrive.

If that sounds like something you’re after, I’d encourage you to look into what the Iron Council offers and how banding with nearly 800 other men will help you thrive in every facet of your life.

I started the Iron Council years ago because I wanted a place where I could connect with high-caliber men and share ideas, strategies, and resources. And, frankly, I couldn’t find it locally – so, I created it.

Now is the perfect time to band with us. We’re going to be shutting enrolment down in January and not sure when we’ll be opening it back up again so, get to it right now and set yourself up for the best year of your life.

TRAVIS HOWZE | Creating Your Own Light
01:13:41

So many of us are looking to external circumstances to solve our problems. We blame all kinds of people, organizations, and outlets for our woes. Unfortunately, when we do that, we put ourselves at the mercy of factors outside of our control and are left feeling empty, hopeless, and powerless to improve our lives.

My guest today, Travis Howze, makes the case for creating your own light and learning how to create positive results in your life in spite of tragic and unfortunate circumstances you may have experienced. We talk about the delicate balance of shouldering pain and learning to let it go, going to “dark places” and emerging victorious, learning to be proud of who you are without being arrogant, finding powerful outlets for difficulties of life, and how to overcome feeling like a fake, fraud, or imposter on your path to growth.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Taking responsibility
  • The trifecta
  • Losing interest
  • Looking to be whole
  • Becoming a comedian
  • Taking a life
  • The alpha male
  • Putting others in danger
  • Suck it up
  • Hitting rock bottom
  • Finding purpose
  • Doing maintenance
  • Imposter syndrome
  • Figuring things out
  • Experiencing hardship

TRAVIS HOWZE

My guest today is Travis Howze. Travis is a Marine Corps veteran, former police officer and firefighter, comedian, and international motivational speaker who has learned to harness his own difficulties of life to make himself a better man.

He’s also the author of, Create Your Own Light, where he outlines and documents his tragic experiences in combat and duty, fighting through the PTSD that resulted, finding powerful outlets for improvement, and healing himself along the journey.

Gents, I think you’re really going to enjoy this one, especially if you’ve got some past emotional, physical, or mental baggage you’re trying to let go of. Enjoy.

30 DAYS TO BATTLE READY

It’s the 25th, guys. That means we have a week until the new year. So, what are you going to do about it? What are you going to do to ensure 2021 isn’t the same for you as 2020?

We’ve all likely got some plans or ideas but do you have a specific strategy for ensuring that is the case? If not, I’d encourage you to sign up for our free Battle Ready course which is going to walk you through the exact same strategies I used to lift myself from desperation and obscurity to leading myself, my family, and the hundreds of thousands of men who are part of the Order.

If you want the framework and you want to thrive in 2021, get signed up. It’s easy to sign up but it does require a commitment from you to put in the work. It’s simple, not easy. But it will transform your life.

STEVEN RINELLA | MeatEater
01:09:45

Studies suggest that upwards of 95-98% of the world’s population eats meat. But increasingly, our connection with not only our food but the planet that provides it seems to be on the decline. Personally, it wasn’t until the last several years that I began to bridge the gap between the food on my plate and where it actually resides.

Today, my guest is none other than Steven Rinella, AKA MeatEater. We talk about so much during our conversation from the importance of connecting with nature and wildlife, how to instill a sense of love and appreciation for both in our children, the almost unexplainable power of “venison diplomacy,” our interconnectedness with the earth, and what she provides, and our counterintuitive non-adversarial relationship to the animals that sustain our way of life.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Generational hunting
  • Appreciating nature
  • The outdoor mindset
  • Being self-sufficient
  • Slaying dragons
  • Preparing for adventure
  • Hacking it out
  • Broad-expertise
  • Living the pipe dream
  • A cascade of events
  • Catching a break
  • A sense of humanity
  • Improving yourself

STEVEN RINELLA

My guest today is none other than Mr. Steven Rinella. Most of you are probably familiar with him via his Netflix show, MeatEater. But if you’re not, Steven is an outdoorsman, conservationist, writer, TV personality, and author of his latest New York Times Bestselling book, The MeatEater Guide to Wilderness Skills and Survival.

Steven has arguably done more to connect people to the great outdoors than any other person on the planet. He got his start as a journalist writing about the joys and benefits of connecting with nature and has since become an extremely popular hunter and conservationist.

Gents, I think you’re really going to enjoy this one and it’s my hope that it inspires you to get outside and share the love of nature with future generations.

ORIGIN BEARD OIL

Obviously, I’ve got a beard. And, obviously, it’s a glorious one. And, not surprisingly, I get a lot of questions about how I maintain such a luxurious beard. The answer is simple: as with anything else, I take care of it.

And, because I do (and also, because I’m a control freak), I had to ensure that I take care of it my way. That’s why I’m stoked to tell you about my partnership with Origin Maine to bring you a 100% sourced and made in America Beard Oil that will ensure you look your best.

We’re in the early stages of “pre-launch” right now and based on the demand and popularity, I think we’re going to run out of our initial run. So, if you’re even remotely interested in making sure your beard is on point, here is what I need you to do: sign up for an early notification at www.originbeardoil.com.

That’s it for now. All I need you to do is sign up for notifications. If you do, we’re going to release it to you first, then (if we have any left), release it to the world. And, we’ve got a few surprises up our sleeve for those of you who sign up early.

Again, get signed up early at www.originbeardoil.com.

The Man in the Arena | EDDIE GALLAGHER
01:15:24

Most of the men listening to this podcast are familiar with Theodore Roosevelt’s speech “Man in the Arena,” and most of us know what it’s like to be mocked, criticized, and ridiculed for the way we live our lives.

But very few of us have ever had to fight like my guest today, Eddie Gallagher, has in order to secure our freedom and lives. Accused of war crimes, Eddie Gallagher spent 9 months in prison facing a potential life sentence. Against insane odds and the deck being stacked against him, Eddie (along with his wife, brother, and the help of thousands of others) successfully secured his freedom and his status as a US Navy SEAL. This is part of his story…

EDDIE GALLGHER

  • Military spouses
  • Protecting the institution
  • Looking for the truth
  • Article 32 hearing
  • Dealing with death threats
  • Staying vigilant
  • Giving it over to God
  • Maintaining a routine
  • Coming back stronger
  • Belonging to a side
  • Responding to negativity
  • Living the civilian life
  • The support from patriots

My guest today is someone a lot of you are extremely familiar with His name is Eddie Gallagher and he is a retired Navy SEAL and came under national attention when he was charged with war crimes while conducting operations in Iraq.

He is also the author of his upcoming book, The Man in the Arena: From Fighting ISIS to Fighting for my Freedom where he documents his insane experience of being falsely accused of war crimes, how his family and the country fought for his freedom, and the truth about how President Trump helped his cause.

This guy is extremely humble and down to earth and, as I talk about with him during the conversation, seems to be an incredible father and husband to his children and wife. I know you guys are going to enjoy this one. Make sure you pre-order his book at www.eddiegallagherbook.com because you’ll get a special pre-order package when you do.

THE IRON COUNCIL

Obviously, we’re talking about being in the arena today and I wanted to talk with you briefly about one often overlooked component of being in the arena – Battle Brothers.

Yeah, sure, you can do life alone and hope that it all plays out for you (and maybe it will) but I can assure you that from personal experience, having a brother who has your back and will hold you accountable to maximizing your potential is a powerful factor.

And, that’s exactly what you’re going to find inside the Iron Council. You’ll have the opportunity to band with “Battle Brothers” who will help ensure you stay the course and achieve all that you set out to achieve in 2021.

If you want to learn more about Battle Brothers and all the Iron Council has to offer, join us at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

Chasing Down Your Fears | SHANE DORIAN
01:21:43

Each and every one of us deals with fear. And, most of us either consciously or subconsciously running away from what we fear most. That’s unfortunate considering that what lies beyond the fear that keeps us back is what we desire most – fulfillment, satisfaction, and purpose.

Today, I am joined by big wave surfer, archer, and father, Shane Dorian to talk about how to manage fear and use it as fuel to do great things in our lives. We talk about the power of proximity, why mentorship (even if informal) is so crucial, the necessity of evolution, the concept of progressive exposure to the things that scare us, loving the challenge, and how to chase down our fears.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Competitive surfing
  • Growing up with distractions
  • Riding waves as a kid
  • Surfing as a pro
  • Finding mentorship
  • Being the minority
  • A mothers sacrifice
  • Creating congruency
  • Being a good father
  • Developing an industry
  • Surfing big wave
  • Inflatable wetsuits
  • Calculated decisions
  • Progressive exposure
  • Connecting with nature

SHANE DORIAN

My guest today is someone who is well known for his ability to ride huge waves but what he’s accomplished in his life goes so much deeper than that. I met Shane earlier this year while hunting in Arizona and I was immediately drawn to his calm, confident presence considering all that I knew about what he’s been able to accomplish.

Shane is a family man first (we talk a lot about that on today’s podcast), a big wave surfer, an inventor, and is an avid bow hunter. And, he’s also an incredible human being who has faced life and death situations in the ocean, successfully built a career on the back of a surfboard, and a leader of his family as a devoted husband and father.

CHRISTMAS SHOPPING

Gents (and ladies if you’re wondering what to get for the man in your life), now is the perfect time to get your Christmas shopping done and I can think of no better place than the Order of Man store.

We’ve got a ton of new inventory and a lot of new merchandise from our bestselling Battle Planner, to shirts and hats, and our first-ever fall/winter lineup with hoodies, windbreakers, and the new Order of Man beanie.

If you want to look good and get your Christmas shopping done early, head to the Order of Man merchandise store and get yourself or your loved one hooked up. Not only is it a great way to support the mission to reclaim and restore masculinity, but you’ll look good in the process.

The Battle for Masculinity | NICKY BILLOU
01:01:44

Masculinity is on the decline. I say that not just anecdotally but also statistically. If you look at testosterone levels, degrees of strength, and our increasing inability to delay gratification for the betterment of ourselves and others, it’s painfully obvious that men, generally, aren’t what we once were.

There are a myriad of reasons for this and my guest today, Nicky Billou, and I talk about what those reasons are – from the changes we see in society (positive and negative), the increasing lack of fatherless homes, taking fault vs. assuming responsibility, the 3rd entity of the relationship with our wife, the undermining of the family unit and the man as the head of his household, and so much more.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Toxic masculinity
  • A changing world
  • Iron sharpening iron
  • Banding with other men
  • Taking ownership
  • Blaming others
  • Taking responsibility
  • Leading effectively
  • Planting the right seed
  • Leading each other
  • Replacing the father
  • Celebrating masculinity
  • Freedom-loving men

NICKY BILLOU

My guest today is Nicky Billou. He and I have been friends for years and I’ve always been inspired by his ability to speak exactly what is on his mind and cut through all the clutter and BS that permeates much of our culture today.

He is the author of Finish Line Thinking: How to Think and Win Like a Champion, a highly sought after public speaker and corporate trainer, and the host of the podcast, The Thought Leader Revolution.

You’re going to hear exactly why I think so highly of Nicky in this podcast today and walk away with a ton of insight and clarity that you may not have had going into this conversation…

Writing Your Redemption Story | TANK
01:07:32

We all mess up from time to time and occasionally lose our way. You might be in the midst of that right now. But if not, there’s likely a time in your life you felt lost, empty, and void of meaning, purpose, and fulfillment in your life.

And, that’s exactly what my guest today, Tank, and I talk about. But more importantly that the feeling of despair and hopelessness, we talk about the path to redemption and how it is all within your control. We also cover how to best fight your demons, the shame of victimhood and how to overcome it, finding faith when you don’t have any in yourself, and rescuing yourself from drowning in this experience we call life.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Finding the truth
  • Getting off social media
  • Rebuilding relationships
  • The servant's heart
  • Fighting the demons
  • Overcoming your shame
  • Chasing fame
  • Finding balance in life
  • Developing faith in yourself
  • Starting a new chapter
  • Accepting responsibility

 

BATTLE READY

Gents, I’m stoked to introduce you to my friend and guest today, Tank. This podcast has been a long time in the works and, although Tank and I were going to do it years ago, he didn’t feel he was in the right space at the time but that’s okay because this podcast, now, is extremely powerful.

Tank is a former Marine, “social media influencer” (we talk more about this in the podcast), and currently a police officer in Texas. But more importantly than that, Tank is someone who self-admittedly has messed up his life, burned bridges, and made some mistakes (as have we all) but is on the path to redemption

Please listen to this episode all the way through because I know Tank’s story is going to resonate with you and help you immensely on your own journey.

A Masterclass in Marketing Yourself | HANS MOLENKAMP
01:12:09

The ability to market – not just your product, but yourself – is a crucial skillset if you have the desire to be successful. Unfortunately, most men equate “marketing” with simply “selling” then wonder why they lose trust, credibility, and authority with potential customers, partners, and other relationships.

But if you want to succeed, you’re going to have to learn to build trust, credibility, and authority with those around you. And, I can think of few men as qualified to talk with us about that than Hans Molenkamp who has worked with brands like Osiris Shoes and Monster Energy, and men like Jocko Willink, Conor McGregor, Daniel Cormier, to name a few. Today we talk about the power of community, being passionate versus fanatical, offering value through creation, and how to brand and market yourself well.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Old school values
  • Building a knife brand
  • Increasing visibility
  • Your brand profile
  • Playing the long game
  • Creative thinking
  • Smart marketing
  • Building your Credibility
  • Cultivating relationships
  • Increase your net worth
  • Getting to the next level
  • Leaving a legacy

HANS MOLENKAMP

Back again today is my friend, Hans Molenkamp.

If you don’t know who this guy is, it might surprise you to know that he’s got his ideas and influence behind some of the biggest brands in the world like Monster Energy and some of the biggest names in the world like Jocko Willink, Conor McGregor, and Jorge Masvidal.

And, on top of all that, he’s a knife maker, photographer, marketer, business owner, martial arts practitioner, and brand-maker.

Gents, you are going to be inspired by the knowledge and the capacity this man runs at, especially if you’re entrepreneurial spirited and have the drive to create. Enjoy.

30 DAYS TO BATTLE READY

Obviously, there is a lot of doubt and uncertainty in the world right now and on the heels of the US election, many people are angry, confused, and upset. But many of these people are also focused on issues beyond their control.

No wonder they’re frustrated. There isn’t anything you can do about a lot of these issues people dwell on.

Instead, I’d have you focus on the things entirely within your control. That’s where the 30 Days to Battle Ready program comes in.

In this free course, you’ll identify a crystal clear vision for success, uncover four specific objectives that you’ll complete over 90 days, and create a roadmap for maximum production in the last quarter of 2020.

So, guys, stop focusing on things you can’t control and, instead, focus on the things that you can. Sign up at www.orderofman.com/battleready.

Raising a King | BRECKEN MICHLER
50:18

If you’ve been listening for any amount of time, you know what I think about modernity and masculinity. I’m often asked about my thoughts regarding raising children in times like these and, while I think my children’s generation has some serious and unique challenges, I’m hopeful for them and how they will rise up in the face of those challenges.

Today, I am joined by my oldest son, Brecken, to talk a bit about our relationship, the challenges our youth face, and I ask him questions from our Facebook group members about his own personal fitness journey including motivation, accountability, and discipline.

This is a great episode for any man who wants to tune in but I would highly suggest you tune in if you have children and want them to be more motivated and disciplined.

Building Wealth through Real Estate | BRANDON TURNER
01:11:16

I’m going to say something to you that is going to sound a bit controversial and even rub some of you listening the wrong way. Being wealthy will help you become better at being a man. Sure, you can be a good man and be broke, but having wealth will help you become better at being a man. We’re going to get into why that is but for now suffice it to say that this show is dedicated to helping you build more wealth.

And, I can think of no better guest to talk with us today about building wealth (specifically through real estate) than host of the extremely popular Building Bigger Pockets Podcast, Brandon Turner. Today, Brandon and I talk about creating money, creative finance strategies for buying real estate, 4 real estate benefits, why you should be building a “portfolio” over a “property,” and how to maximize your wealth through real estate.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Pursuing something venturous
  • Reading Non-fiction
  • The tipping point
  • Taking real estate risks
  • Living for free
  • Flipping houses
  • Creative Financing
  • The “Deal Delta”
  • Starting off slow
  • Keeping emotion out
  • Real Estate tax benefits
  • The “Four Square Method”
  • Exponential growth
  • Guarding against greed
  • Outsourcing the work
  • Purchasing a property
  • Real estate appreciation
  • Return on equity

BRANDON TURNER

My guest today is my friend, and the co-host of the incredibly popular podcast, Bigger Pockets Podcast, Brandon Turner.

Brandon is a real-estate investor (that’s a massive understatement) and has been investing in real estate in one form or the other since he was 21 years old. Now, he’s on a mission to teach others the behind-the-scenes secrets to successfully investing in real estate and avoiding a lot of the dumb mistakes that he made in the past.

He contributes for Forbes, Entrepreneur, Fox, Money Magazine, and so much more and his podcast is consistently ranked the #1 business podcast in the world.

ORDER OF MAN STORE

Gents, one thing I don’t talk a whole lot about is our Order of Man Store. If you want to support this movement in a small way and want to look good in the process, please take a look at store.orderofman.com.

The merchandise store started out as an ancillary business to the Order of Man, Iron Council, and the other products and services we offer but I’ve always had a goal to build an actual apparel brand and our store is in the beginning stages of that dream.

So, you’re not going to find shirts, hats, and a bunch of other bullshit they’d give you for completing a 5K in your local area. We’ve created the best shirts, hats, hoodies, Battle Planners, wallets, etc. on the market and it’s all gear you’d be honored and proud to wear.

Check it out at store.orderofman.com.

Our Rights and Responsibilities of Gun Ownership | JEFF GONZALES
01:15:38

Gun ownership is such a polarizing subject. And, with the increasing gun ownership in America combined with the tension and friction we’ve seen between people, it’s only going to become more so. That said, gun ownership is a fundamental right protected by the United States Constitution but that does not absolve us of the responsibility we, as gun owners, have to be safe and make ourselves proficient with our firearms.

Today, I am joined by former Navy SEAL, Jeff Gonzales to talk about both our rights and responsibilities as gun owners. We also cover recommendations for new firearms owners, how much time needs to be dedicated towards training (including training without having access to a range), why the beginners' mindset will help you become a more proficient gun owner, and metrics for improving your accuracy and effectiveness should you need to use your firearm.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Agnostic towards gun
  • Following safety rules
  • Adjusting to gun ownership
  • Unprecedented times
  • Dry firing your gun
  • Establishing the fundamentals
  • Measuring progress
  • Valuing the experience
  • Push Yourself to Failure
  • Always ask “Why”
  • Improving the collective
  • Repeatable processes
  • Hardening your home
  • Evaluating your living situation
  • Good-natured people

JEFF GONZALES

Gentlemen, my guest today is former Navy SEAL and firearms expert, Jeff Gonzales.

Jeff is one of the most qualified men I know to talk on the subject of responsible gun ownership. Not only is he a decorated and respected SEAL operator, but he is also the president of Trident Concepts, LLC, and is a member of the NRA’s Training and Education Committee.

Over the past few years, he’s put a heavy emphasis on concealed carry and has used his years of combat experience and tactical instruction to help law enforcement, military, and armed citizens become more capable and effective of defending themselves and others with firearms.

Gents, today we’ve been talking about making yourself more battle-ready with the use of firearms and while that is one critical component of protecting yourself and others, there is another equally demanding battle – the one with your mind.

After teaching men for years the systems and skills they need to know to thrive, I’ve come to the conclusion that many men simply don’t have a plan for life. In other words, they’re not even mentally prepared for the battle.

That’s where the 30 Days to Battle Ready program comes in. In this free 30 day course, I’m going to equip you with the exact strategy I’ve created over years of research, testing, and real-world application for maximizing your readiness for whatever life has to throw at you and thrive in the face of it.

If you’re ready to dive in and do more self-work over the next 30 days than you potentially have your entire life, join the 30 Days to Battle Ready program and get started immediately.

Living Life on Your Terms | STEVE WEATHERFORD
01:07:13

Many of us are living for or through someone else and we don’t even know it. If left unchecked, not only does it lead to a life of emptiness but it can also lead to contempt, disdain, and distrust for those we care about most.

Today, I am joined by my good friend, former Superbowl Champion, and one of the most real men I know, Steve Weatherford. We cover a lot of ground in this one and he gets real about why sports were such an important part of his life, his transition from professional football, the concept of “life mastery” vs. “life balance,” how results born from insecurity do not serve us, and how to ultimately live life on our own terms.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Family mantras
  • Words of affirmation
  • Post Superbowl 
  • Checking the box
  • Being an elite athlete
  • Creating a blueprint
  • Looking for an identity
  • Sharpening other men
  • The hamster wheel of life
  • Chasing the results
  • Spiritual fitness
  • Talking about vision
  • Overcoming disability
  • The path of resistance

STEVE WEATHERFORD

My guest today is the one and only, Steve Weatherford.

Steve and I met years ago when he invited me and my family to visit him and his family in California for the weekend. He and I immediately connected and became good friends. I know not everyone gets the chance to build a solid relationship with people they admire and respect but Steve is definitely one of those people for me.

He is an incredible athlete and, of course, a Super Bowl Champion with the New York Giants. After leaving the NFL, Steve went onto broadcasting and has since started and grown an incredible fitness and supplement business, WeatherfordFit. He is also the host of his podcast, The Steve Weatherford Show.

BATTLE READY

Gents, obviously, we’ve been talking about living life on your terms today. And, along those same thread lines, I thought it would make sense for me to tell you about the 30 Days to Battle Ready Program.

Over 10,000 men have gone through the course which is designed to give you the tools and roadmap you need to identify your objectives and create the perfect plan for making it a reality.

This isn’t a program where I tell you how to do everything and what you should be working towards, but a program that helps you come up with your own plan and, essentially, start living life on your own terms.

When you register (for free), you gain access to a series of emails over 30 days to help you get your life on track the way you’ve always wanted it to be.

You can get registered at www.orderofman.com/battleready.

Is Society Making Men the Enemy? | CHARLIE KIRK
01:06:25

Men, if you’ve been following me for any amount of time, you know that I believe there is a real dismissal of men and masculinity in society today. I’m hesitant to use the term “war on masculinity” or “attack on masculinity” because I believe that words have meaning.

That said, there are some very real threats not only to men and boys but the fabric of American culture and Western Civilization as a whole.

And, today, I’m joined by a man who is working hard to fight against it. His name is Charlie Kirk and he is the founder of Turning Point USA and the New York Times Bestselling author of The MAGA Doctrine. Today, we discuss how men seem to have become the enemy in society, the sedation and feminization of males, emotional manipulation, and cultural issues such as the dismantling of the family unit, the power of free speech, how the deck is stacked against men, and, more importantly, what we do about it.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Loving what you do
  • Integrating your life
  • Discontinuing friendship
  • A mission-driven thing
  • Personal responsibility
  • Over-sedating young man
  • Hyper-feminization of boys
  • Boys need a hero
  • Abolishing male hierarchy
  • Creating stronger men
  • Saving the country
  • Governing humans
  • Transcending skin color
  • Family is everything
  • The silent majority

CHARLIE KIRK

Gents, my guest today is the one and only Charlie Kirk. He’s a very polarizing figure although, I think, if you really listen to his message and what he shares, I don’t think it’s that controversial at all.

He is the founder and President of Turning Point USA, which is a movement dedicated to empowering young people to promote the principles of free markets and limited governments.

He’s also the author of New York Times Best Selling Book, The MAGA Doctrine: The Only Ideas That Will Win the Future.

Today, he is here to talk with us about his fight to save men and save America.

ORDER OF MAN MERCHANDISE

Men, we’ve done our best to restock our merchandise store with the gear you want to look good and send a message about your stance in reclaiming and restoring masculinity to its rightful place.

We’ve got hats, shirts, Battle Planners, wallets, decals, and, by popular demand, our first-ever Order of Man hoodies and sweatshirts.

But if you want to represent Order of Man and look good in the process, you better do it now because everything is selling out very, very quickly.

Head to store.orderofman.com to support what we’re doing here and look your best while letting the world know what type of man you are.

Building a Business, Building a Life | JASON MCCARTHY
01:07:45

So many of you listening have entrepreneurial aspirations. But if you’re anything like I have been in the past, you may be thinking to yourself, “Who am I to start a business?”

Frankly, who are you not to?

Each and every man listening to this has a set of skills, insights, perspectives, and value to add to the world. It wasn’t until I realized this that Order of Man really started to take off. I think my guest, Jason McCarthy, founder of GoRuck would likely agree. He didn’t know that, when he was building GoRuck, he’d also be building his life but that’s what he discovered. Today, we talk about ignorance and education, when to throw in the towel and when to drive on, respecting and honoring your roots, being present in the moment, and how to build a life by building a business.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Turning into cyborgs
  • A world at odds
  • Stop living online
  • Flipping the switch
  • Building a business
  • Taking responsibility
  • Traveling cross-country
  • Living in ignorance
  • A labor of love
  • Throwing in the towel
  • The most important part
  • Building overseas


JASON McCARTHY

My guest today is former Army Special Forces Green Beret and the founder of GoRuck, Jason McCarthy.

Jason is one of the realest and most down-to-earth men, especially considering he’s been wildly successful in both the military and as he’s grown GoRuck into an international business.

He is also the author of his newest book, How Not to Start a Backpack Company, where he documents his own personal victories and struggles in both his professional and personal life and shares stories of personal hardships and relationship challenges on his quest to build a life he can be proud of.

ORDER OF MAN MERCHANDISE

Gentlemen, I’ve had a goal for years now to start my own apparel company and, although, we’re just getting started, what you’ll find in the Order of Man store is just the beginning of what will eventually become a globally recognized apparel company.

I’d ask that you go support what we’re doing in the store right now because we have shirts, hats, flags, wallets, and, of course, our best-selling product, the Twelve-Week Battle Planner.

Not only will you look good as you support the mission to reclaim and restore masculinity, but you’ll have the opportunity to say that you own one of the original Order of Man products when we reach that global status.

And, it’s a great way to support the mission here: to reclaim and restore masculinity. Head to store.orderofman.com.

How Improved Style Improves Your Life | AARON MARINO
01:16:50

I know as I release this podcast, a lot of men are going to look at the title and immediately write it off. “A real man,” after all, “doesn’t care how he looks.” While it’s a phrase I hear quite often, it just isn’t true. Washington, Alexander the Great, Theodore Roosevelt and, more recently, Jordan Peterson (to name a few) are all men who knew the usefulness of their appearance.

That, to me, is the power of being conscious of your style – not to peacock, but to perform. And, today, I’m joined by my friend and a man extremely qualified to talk about how to level up your style. His name is Aaron Marino of Alpha M and today, we talk about the functionality of style, how what you wear communicates to people who you are, how dressing well helps instill a sense of respect in yourself, and how improved style improves your life.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Being well-groomed
  • A competitive world
  • You’re personal brand
  • Opportunity for improvement
  • Taking the next step
  • Dressing with purpose
  • Identifying body type
  • Stretching your budget
  • Ask for assistance
  • Assessing yourself
  • Stay simple and classic
  • Looking too young
  • Decision fatigue
  • Finding congruency
  • Your best foot forward

AARON MARINO

My guest today is a longtime friend and supporter of Order of Man, Aaron Marino.

I met Aaron years ago when I attended his men’s conference, StyleCon (which later became Menfluential) and have been able to get to know him, his background as a gym owner and, later, someone who would go on to help millions of men level up their style, appearance, and confidence.

He’s got over 6,000,000 YouTube Subscribers and owns multiple businesses but it’s been a long road to get to this point. And, today we talk about that journey and why he knows style is a powerful tool in every man’s toolbelt.

30 DAYS TO BATTLE READY

Gents, we now have nearly 10,000 men who have gone through the new (and free) Battle Ready program. I am literally getting dozens or more emails a day from those of you are going through the process or have completed and I’m stoked to know that it is making a difference in your life.

Too many men have no idea what the hell they should be doing with their lives and how to ensure they’re on the right track. And, while this course, won’t do the work for you or guarantee your results, it will point you in the right direction and give you a track to run on regardless of what your goals are.

The Case for Eating More Meat | ROBB WOLF
01:29:16

I’d be willing to bet (without the supporting data) that 95%+ of you eat meat. Like me, it really hasn’t even crossed my mind not to. That said, there seems to be a growing trend of individuals who have made meat consumption the enemy and the scapegoat for a lot of what’s wrong with the world from greenhouse emissions to the growing obesity epidemic to the mistreatment and mismanagement of our animals and nature’s resources.

That’s why I’m honored to bring on an expert in the field, Robb Wolf. He’s the author or of the New York Times Bestselling book, Wired to Eat, and co-author of Sacred Cow: The Case for (Better) Meat: Why Well-Raised Meat is Good for You and Good for the Planet. Today, we talk about the environmental, nutritional, and ethical impacts of meat consumption, the power of regenerative cattle ranching, why eating meat seems to be a political divide, how are bodies are evolutionarily hardwired to consume meat, and how veganism can negatively impact the environment.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Steak in moderation
  • Evolutionary biology
  • Personal accountability
  • Decision fatigue
  • Evolving over time
  • A nutrient-rich diet
  • Regenerative agriculture
  • Finding meaningful work
  • Destroying small business
  • Unintended consequences
  • Industrial food systems
  • USDA Certified
  • Food decentralization
  • Consolidating power
  • Raw milk access

ROBB WOLF

My guest today is Robb Wolf. He is a former research biochemist and the New York Times Bestselling author of The Paleo Solution and Wired to Eat. I imagine that will become a threepeat with his latest book Sacred Cow: The Case for (Better) Meat.

Robb also served as a review editor for the Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism and as a consultant for the Naval Special Warfare Resiliency Program.

Needless to say, his resume speaks for itself. He’s one of the foremost authorities on diet, nutrition, exercise, and healthy living.

BATTLE READY

Gents, I just looked at the statistics and over 6,000 men have now enrolled in the 30 Days to Battle Ready course.

These are men just like you – they want to deepen the relationship they have with their spouse, stack a few more zeros in their bank account, secure that coveted promotion, launch the business they’ve been thinking about for years, and generally discover meaning and fulfillment in their lives.

But you know as well as I do, it isn’t going to just happen. You need to plan for it and then work to make it a reality. While I can’t do the work for you, I can give you the roadmap and help you create the path for yourself. It’s the old adage, Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach him how to fish and feed him for a lifetime.

If you want to learn how to fish, the 30 Days to Battle Ready Program will teach you exactly how. You can enroll at www.orderofman.com/battleready.

One True Patriot | SEAN PARNELL
01:07:28

During any election cycle, it seems increasingly difficult to place any trust and faith in our elected officials – on both sides of the aisle. But it’s crucial that we find, elect, and support those men who exhibit leadership capabilities outside of the political circus. After all, much of our lives are impacted by those we elect.

I’ve often wondered why any good man would get into the political arena and that’s why I wanted to have my friend and candidate for Congress, Sean Parnell, back on the podcast. He’s a man I highly respect for his friendship, his service to this country as an Army Ranger with the 10th Mountain Division, and his desire to do good for this county. Today, we talk about what true leadership looks and feels like, the external and internal threats this country faces, his take on career politicians, term limits (which might surprise you), and the power of story to influence others.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Representing the people
  • Living a private sector life
  • No honor in politics
  • Servants of our community
  • Career politicians
  • Consolidating power
  • Reaching across the aisle
  • Standing with the workers
  • Condemning the riots
  • Fighting for your country
  • The 1st Amendment
  • The job of a leader
  • Making bad decisions
  • The two-tiered justice system
  • Freedom can disappear
  • Identifying the enemy

 

SEAN PARNELL

Sean Parnell, candidate for Congress and former Army Ranger with the 10th Mountain Division is back by popular demand after just speaking at the RNC and with his campaign for Congress going really well.

And, on top of his insane schedule right now, he just wrote a new fictional book titled, One True Patriot, on the heels of his New York Times Bestselling Book, Outlaw Platoon.

Sean is a regular contributor on Fox as well as appearances on CNN, MSNBC, and many others.

He is also the co-founder of the American Warrior Initiative and has since thrown his hat in the ring of politics and is running for Congress in Pennsylvania’s 17th Congressional District.

30 DAYS TO BATTLE READY

Where do I get started? How do I get back on track? I want to improve my life; how do I begin?

These are questions I receive every single day and although the answer is certainly not easy, it is simple. You start with a plan.

And, I’ve made a planning tool available to you that will help you get on the path you know you should be on. It’s called 30 Days to Battle Ready and in this free email course, you’ll learn everything you need to know to make the end of this year an incredible success despite the kick in the balls you may have received from 2020.

Only sign up if you’re serious and you’re willing to do the exercises and work to achieve the personal and professional results you’re after.

Adapt and Overcome | PETE ROBERTS
01:28:43

No doubt, 2020 has kicked you in the teeth. It has for everyone to some degree. What you do now is completely up to you. If you adapt quickly, you’ll win. If you don’t, well, good luck. Most men understand this. Few do it.

That’s why I wanted to have my good friend, Jiu-Jitsu coach, and business mentor back on the podcast. He’s arguably one the best and quickest adaptors in the game. His name is Pete Roberts and he is the founder of Origin. Today, we talk about how to recognize evolving trends, how to get ahead of the curve in life, when to adjust, and what factors to look for and, we give a bit of cultural commentary, including some political predictions (which were proven wrong since the recording of this podcast).

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Dealing with ego
  • Facing challenges
  • In the trenches
  • Building culture
  • Learning to pivot
  • Rebuilding supply lines
  • Gaining perspective
  • Fortunate events
  • Changing the zeros
  • Experiencing Jiu-Jitsu
  • A country divided
  • Uniting our country

PETE ROBERTS

Gents, my guest today is Pete Roberts and, as I said early, he is the founder of Origin Maine, an American manufacturing company based in Maine. It might sound familiar to you because you hear me talk about Origin every week and there’s a reason why (you’ll hear about it on the podcast).

Besides being one of the best innovators I know when it comes to growing, building, and scaling a business, he’s been a great mentor and friend, and one of the primary reason for us making our move to Maine.

I always enjoy my conversations with Pete and I always walk away with a new perspective I hadn’t considered before. You will too.

BATTLE READY PROGRAM.

Gentlemen, at this point over 4,000 men have gone through the Battle Ready Program.

If you aren’t familiar with what that is, it’s a free email course designed to walk you through four critical phases of planning your life. Look, I know how much you want to accomplish. I know that most men (based on the responses I’ve heard) are struggling with discipline and consistency. I also know that you believe you are meant for something more.

It isn’t going to fall into your lap, gents. You have to go out and take it. But rather than be reckless in your pursuit, let me show you how to be calculated and precise in identifying what you want then doing the work necessary to claim it.

How to Build a Powerful Personal Network | DR. IVAN MISNER
01:13:50

I don’t consider myself uniquely talented, gifted, or blessed. But there is one factor I excel at that has given me more opportunity than I could have ever imagined. And, the best news is that all of us, regardless of our inherent gifts and talents, can improve our capacity to excel in this factor.

I’m talking about the ability to connect and network with other individuals. And, I can think of no better person to talk with us about how to develop that skill set than the founder of Business Network International, Dr. Ivan Misner. Today, we talk about farming vs. hunting in networking, how to connect with powerful people, why so many people struggle with making connections, the 3-part system for maximizing relationships, and how to build a powerful personal network.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The single greatest skillset
  • Teaching leadership
  • The V.C.B. process
  • The Time Confidence Curve
  • Networking isn’t hard
  • You got to show up
  • Getting more referrals
  • The fear of public speaking
  • Speak without speaking
  • The 29% Solution
  • Networking success
  • Six degrees of separation
  • The “Givers Gain” core value
  • Serving others
  • Premature solicitation
  • Leading with curiosity
  • The third-party testimonial
  • Building a referral system

DR. IVAN MISNER

My guest is someone I have admired and respected for a very long time. His name is Dr. Ivan Misner and he is the founder of Business Network International (BNI) which has over 9,600 worldwide chapters and has over 250,000 members. Last year alone, BNI resulted in $16.7 billion dollars worth of business for its members.

Dr. Misner is also a New York Times Bestselling author and has written 24 books including his latest, Who’s in Your Room? He’s been called the “Father of Modern Networking” by CNN and tapped as one of the “Top Networking Experts” by Forbes.

He has also been honored as “Humanitarian of the Year” by the Red Cross and is the recipient of the John C. Maxwell Transformational Leadership Award. I could go on and on by sufficing it to say the man knows how to network, how to connect, and how to help you do the same.

BATTLE PLANNER FOR KIDS

Several months ago, my son suggested making a Battle Planner for children. He had seen the one that I created for myself and wanted to make something for himself.

After a lot of work together and the investment in making it come to life, both he and I are proud to announce that the 90-Day Battle Planner for Kids is now available in the Order of Man merchandise store.

If you have a child and want that child to have a leg up, the 90-Day Battle Planner for Kids is the tool you need to help them get on track, identify important priorities, and develop the discipline and consistency needed to thrive in life.

Inside, you’ll find 90 Daily Trackers with daily non-negotiables and a section where they can identify important daily activities in each of six important facets of their life. But the most important thing is that you’ll personally have a framework to work alongside them in building confidence and getting important work done!

Optimization Through Discomfort | KIP FULKS
01:25:29

You wouldn’t be listening to this podcast if you didn’t want to improve your life to some degree. In fact, I’d argue that most of you are interested in optimizing every facet of your life.

And, that’s exactly what my friend, avid bow hunter, co-founder of Under Armour, and founder of Big Truck Farms and Brewery, Kip Fulks talk about today. This is a fascinating discussion with an extremely fascinating man. We talk about manufacturing discomfort, becoming good stewards over all of our resources, developing undaunted courage, managing ourselves well, and optimizing our lives.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Made in America
  • Working your ass off
  • Problem-solving
  • Loving the struggle
  • Going around the wall
  • A consumer society
  • Big Truck Brewery
  • Driven by beliefs
  • Managing wildlife
  • Making a sacrifice
  • Experiencing doubt
  • The common denominator
  • Watching others rise
  • Pushing past comfort
  • Overcoming roadblocks

KIP FULKS

I met Kip Fulks years ago through Instagram. We spent some time hunting in Arizona and I’m always left fascinated and inspired by our conversations. He’s a very deep and probably one of the most interesting thinkers I know.

Kip is an avid outdoorsman, played professional lacrosse for 10 years, is one of the original partners of Under Armour where he helped build the organization into a multi-billion dollar business, and now owns and operates Big Truck Farms and Brewery where he has learned from scratch how to craft beer without any prior knowledge or experience.

I’ve been asking Kip to come on the podcast for years. You guys are going to enjoy this one.

30 DAYS TO BATTLE READY

Gentlemen, whatever your battle is, you cannot possibly win unless you have a clear and effective strategy for securing victory.

Most men go at life with a shotgun approach, shooting everything they see, and no real method or system for ensuring they hit the target they’re after.

So, whether you’re trying to salvage your marriage, lead your wife and children well, lose that spare tire around the mid-section, compete in an Iron Man, start a new business, secure a promotion – or generally trying to improve yourself in some way, the 30 Days to Battle Ready program has you covered.

Over the course of 30 days, you’ll work through 4 phases to develop your own Battle Plan so you can attack life in whatever way you see fit and actually produce the results you’re after.

Thousands of men have gone through the free program. It’s time for you to go through it as well and make yourself Battle Ready.

You can sign up at www.orderofman.com/battleready.

A Man of Conviction | IAN SMITH
56:44

Men, I’ve got a great one lined up for you today with a man who I was just recently introduced to. In the last several weeks, his business has been forcefully shut down, he and his business partner have been arrested, and they’re now facing a $15,000/day fine for operating their legitimate and licensed gym in New Jersey.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Living the American dream
  • Respect for the American Institution
  • Losing to COVID
  • Stepping outside your box
  • The moving goal post
  • National media attention
  • Being a political target
  • David vs. Goliath
  • Acting like a ruler
  • Going 12 rounds
  • Living a normal life
  • Telling your story
  • Supporting small business

Look, I’m not asking you to agree with the premise of Ian Smith’s current situation and the fight he’s been thrust into (although I think many of you will) but I would have you consider the validity of the fight he’s engaged in, what it means to be a man of conviction, standing up to the government, and putting it all on the line for something you believe in.

IAN SMITH

As I mentioned earlier, my guest today is Ian Smith. He is the co-owner and founder of Atilis Gym in New Jersey.

He’s recently been thrust into the national limelight and has been featured on Tucker Carlson, CNN’s Chris Cuomo, and Charlie Kirk for defying local business restrictions and refusing to close his gym.

This isn’t a man who set out to defy the government, piss people off, or be reckless with people’s health and lives but he is a man who is willing to stand by what he believes in the face of threats of imprisonment and astronomical fines for what he believes to be unconstitutional infringements.

Gent’s, you’re really going to enjoy this one and I, personally, was extremely impressed with Ian’s knowledge, his thoughtfulness, and, most importantly, his willingness to take a strong stand for what he believes in.

BECOME BATTLE READY

As you’re likely well aware by now, we just released our free Battle Ready course designed to walk you through 4 crucial planning stages so that you can accomplish more over the next 90-days than you have at any other point in your life.

If you’re sick of living a life of default and mediocrity, I’m going to show you over a period of 30 days exactly how you can take control of your life once and for all and learn the systems to be able to predictably replicate results over and over and over again.

Whether you’re trying to salvage your marriage, connect with your kids, lose weight, get strong, secure a promotion, start a new business, or simply develop more discipline and consistency in your life, I’ll help you take all of the guesswork out of the equation and show you exactly what you need to do to produce results.

The Power of Uncomfortable Truths, Part 2 | SEAN WHALEN
55:52

Back by popular demand is my good friend and long-time mentor, Sean Whalen. I had Sean join me several months ago and the feedback I received was so overwhelmingly positive that I knew I needed to have him back on the podcast.

Although you may not agree with everything we talk about today, the social climate we live in demands those who are unabashedly unafraid of speaking their minds and giving us a glimpse into perspectives we may not otherwise consider.

This is a powerful follow-up to our conversation several months ago about what is going on in culture today and what a man needs to do to navigate these interesting times.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Paying to play
  • Survival of the fittest
  • Helping other people
  • Truth is truth
  • The blame-game
  • Doing shit differently
  • Living an exceptional life
  • COVID-19 fallout
  • The true reality
  • Being fat, dumb, and healthy
  • Ensuring our safety
  • Focusing on you
  • Investing in relationships

SEAN WHALEN

Gents, today I have the honor of introducing you yet again to my friend, Sean Whalen.

Although he and I don’t always agree, I genuinely admire his passion and enthusiasm for life, adventure, and new experiences. In fact, this conversation was recorded between him racing cars and qualifying for competitive racing.

You’re going to get a lot of information from this one and, at the very least, you’ll be motivated and inspired to do more with your life.

30 DAYS TO BATTLE READY

By now, you guys have heard me talk about our new Battle Ready program.

Over, the past few weeks, I’ve been receiving hundreds of emails and DM’s with testimonials from men who are getting crystal clear on what they want out of life and formulating a plan to make it a reality.

If you want to grab your life by the balls and get done more by the end of this year than you have at any other point in your life, join the free Battle Ready program at www.orderofman.com/battleready.

When you do, you’ll get a series of emails over the course of 30 days that will walk you through four critical phases of planning and preparing your success on both the personal and professional front.

Again, you can sign up at www.orderofman.com/battleready.

Fixing America Through Uncomfortable Conversations | BYRON DAVIS
01:33:51

Civil discourse is a skillset that seems to be in increasingly rare supply but if we have any hope of solving our toughest challenges, it’s going to require men of all races, religious beliefs, and sides of the political aisle to come together to have these challenging discussions.

And, that’s why I’ve really been looking forward to getting my conversation with Byron Davis to you guys. I knew that we wouldn’t agree on everything we discussed but I was pleasantly surprised that we were significantly closer than those who prey on the outraged would have the population believe.

We talk about the importance of the crucial conversations, why and how our egos get in the way, what “dismantling the system” means, the “bait and switch” of the BLM organization’s messaging, cancel culture, and the proper role of government in our lives.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • A lack of maturity
  • Challenging your ego
  • Demanding more of yourself
  • Police tactics
  • Dysfunction in the system
  • Cultivating a community
  • Perpetuating a problem
  • Investing financial resources
  • Creating virtual fathers
  • Impacting the world
  • Moving the needle
  • Counteracting the bad apples
  • Calling out bad cops
  • Globalizing our economy
  • Addressing systemic issues
  • Confusing the narrative
  • Abdicating certain freedoms
  • Stewarding your family
  • Accumulating wealth
  • Operating at your best
  • Speaking truths

BYRON DAVIS

I’m honored to introduce you to my guest today.

His name is Byron Davis and through his ministry, Legacy Men, his goal is to equip and empower men of all walks of life to be the difference within the world around them.

Byron and I hadn’t ever had a conversation before this so I didn’t know a whole lot about him and his work prior to our conversation but I was so impressed with his knowledge, articulate thoughts on some of the most difficult topics we can discuss, and his genuine desire to lead from the front.

He’s a former USA National Swim team member and American record holder. Now, he’s a speaker, author, and the founder of Authority Labs which helps leaders master their message and increase their influence.

BATTLE READY

Look, most men know they want to improve in some area of their life. And, generally, most of you know what it is you need to do.

But let’s be honest, knowing what to do and actually doing it are separate issues. And, I know, if you’re anything like me, that developing the discipline to do the work required is extremely challenging.

That’s why I created 30 Days to Battle Ready. It’s a free program designed to give you a 30 day track to run on which will equip you with the tools you need to develop discipline, maintain consistency, and finally achieve your goals – whatever they are (which we’ll help you identify if needed).

If you want to tee the rest of your year up for success on the professional or personal front, sign up for the free Battle Ready program at www.orderofman.com/battleready.

JOCKO WILLINK | Leading in Challenging and Uncertain Times
01:17:53

It’s easy to lead in comfortable times. In fact, I’m not even sure if we would call that leadership. It’s the times that are challenging that your true measurement as a leader comes into question. And, regardless of how you feel about the political landscape, COVID-19, and the civil unrest in society, I think we’d all agree that these are uncertain and challenging times.

Today, I’m joined by my friend and 4-time guest, Jocko Willink, to talk about how to pivot effectively, overcoming the resistance to change in yourself and others, the differences between being reactive and proactive, how to take and inspire initiative, the dichotomy of caring for other people, and so much more.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Going virtual
  • Effective training tools
  • Overcoming hurdles
  • Resisting change
  • Emotional decisions
  • The false dichotomy
  • Resolving conflict
  • Stripping away humanity
  • Being a reasonable human being
  • Proving people right
  • Exploiting opportunity

JOCKO WILLINK

Gents, I am honored to introduce (for the 4th time on this podcast) my friend, former Navy SEAL Commander, New York Times Bestselling Author, and founder of Echelon Front, Jocko Willink.

I can honestly say that after having multiple conversations with and getting to know Jocko on a personal and professional level that there isn’t a single person more qualified to talk about leadership than him. And, these are certainly times that call for leadership.

As you’re well aware, Jocko is the founder of the leadership organization, Echelon Front, has written multiple New York Times Bestselling books, and, in case you’ve been living under a rock, the host of the extremely popular podcast, Jocko Podcast.

Our conversations get better each time and this one is no exception.

BATTLE READY

If you haven’t already heard, the free Battle Ready course is now available.

In it, I’m going to send you a series of emails over 30 days designed to give you all the tools, resources, and information you need to make the next 90 days the most productive, profitable, and prosperous time in your life.

I can say that with certainty because thousands of men have now gone through the program I’ll teach and they’re making more money, securing promotions, getting the girl, losing weight, getting strong, connecting with their kids, finding meaning and, like Pedro would say, “making their wildest dreams come true.”

Of course, I can’t guarantee that but I can guarantee that if you implement the exact strategies I’ll teach you, you will accomplish more out of your life than you ever have in the past.

ANDY FRISELLA | Real AF
01:35:31

Gents, today I am joined by the one and only, Andy Frisella. I don’t say it lightly but this is hands-down one of the single best podcast conversations I’ve had since starting nearly five and a half years ago.

We all know the world is in chaos and, frankly, it seems like so few of us are willing to have the tough and difficult conversations that we need to have in order to come up with some solutions to what ails us. Today, Andy and I address many of those concerns as we talk about societal issues, having difficult and important conversations, his life-changing 75Hard program, what the successful all have in common, and how you can take charge of your life.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Business strategy
  • Social agendas
  • Bowing to the pressure
  • Making intelligent decisions
  • Expressing your views
  • Offering a different perspective
  • Addressing real issues
  • A painful history
  • A level of ignorance
  • Law and order
  • Effective leadership
  • The comparison trap
  • Becoming an elite

ANDY FRISELLA

As I mentioned before, today I am joined by my good friend, Andy Frisella. I started listening to his podcast, MFCEO, roughly five years ago and I was immediately impressed with his ability to tell it like it is.

He is the founder of the extremely successful supplement company, 1stPhorm, and the host of the number 1 podcast in the world, MFCEO. Since making that podcast so successful, he transitioned into talking about the real issues that seem to be plaguing society and launched his second podcast, REAL AF (which I believe is better than his first).

I had the chance to spend the day with him at their new 200,000 sq. foot facility in St. Louis and was absolutely blown away with the facility and every single person in the 1st Phorm “phamily” that I met.

30 DAYS TO BATTLE READY

Gents, if you’re not already aware, a couple of weeks ago, we launched our 30 Days to Battle Ready program which is designed to teach you the framework for success over the next 30 days.

When you sign up (it’s free), you’ll get access to a series of emails which is not only going to outline the process but challenge you to complete a series of steps that will radically alter your life.

This isn’t some cheap email course. This is the result of nearly six years of trial and error with me and thousands of men who have gone through the program.

If you’re discontent with where you are in your relationship, finances, physical health, and/or any other area of your life, commit to implementing this program over the next 30 days, dive in head-first, and change your life.

You can join us at www.orderofman.com/battleready.

How Dogs Can Make You a Better Man | MIKE RITLAND
01:09:46

I know on the surface the title of this podcast may seem a bit far-fetched but I can assure you that what my guest today, Mike Ritland, and I cover regarding dog handling and training can make you a better man if you apply it.

I don’t want to make the comparison of humans and animals (clearly, there are huge differences) but there is a ton of psychology that goes into effectively training dogs that can be directly applied to our approach as men like developing patience, looking for feedback, adhering to first or foundational principles, how we can communicate effectively. We also get into some other topics regarding our current cultural crisis, politics, and our job as fathers.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Sheltering our youth
  • Living with consequences
  • Micromanagement
  • Learning from your mistakes
  • Training dogs through repetition
  • Shaping behavior
  • Rewarding your dog
  • Socialization
  • Training with "Dog Men"
  • The Dog Warrior Foundation

MIKE RITLAND

My guest today is a former Navy SEAL and the founder of Team Dog Online Training, Mike Ritland.

He’s also a New York Times Bestselling author of three books: Trident K9 Warriors, Navy SEAL Dogs, and TEAM Dog. In addition, he is the host of the wildly popular podcast, Mike Drop.

Mike is a fascinating human being never at a loss of an opinion on the current culture, how to train dogs, and generally how to become a better, more capable human being.

Forging Noble Manhood | STEPHEN MANSFIELD
01:09:31

If you didn’t believe in the inherent value of masculinity, you wouldn’t be here listening to this podcast. But you are so I know that you believe in the message to reclaim and restore masculinity in a world that has been constantly distorting what it means to be a man, undermining the value men bring to society, and signing masculinity off as a socially constructed and antiquated behavior of men.

That’s why the conversation I have with repeat guest, Stephen Mansfield is so crucial. He has been championing noble manhood for years and I could not be more honored than to call him a friend.

Today, we talk about the culture of men, the critical importance of a man’s legacy, the fire of heritage, rituals, a man’s warrior spirit, and why we must all fight to forge noble manhood.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Learning family heritage
  • The traditional family
  • Community obligations
  • Informal mentorship
  • The lore of manhood
  • The fire of God
  • Male authority
  • Building woman up
  • Searching for answers
  • Taking on ridicule
  • Virtues of a warrior
  • The duplicity of life
  • Stepping into manhood


STEPHEN MANSFIELD

My guest today is my good friend and repeat guest, Stephen Mansfield. As I said previously, he has been a champion of noble manhood for years and has been a huge support and advocate for what we’re doing here at Order of Man. In fact, he was gracious enough to write a powerful testimony for my book, Sovereignty: The Battle for the Hearts and Minds of Men.

Stephen is a political commentator, founder of Greatmen.tv, and New York Times Bestselling author and has written many incredible books including, Mansfield’s Book of Manly Men, Building Your Band of Brothers, and his latest (which he is here to talk with us about today), Men on Fire.

LEGACY

Fathers, on September 3rd-6th we’re going to be hosting our first-ever Legacy experience in Maine.

You and your son (between the ages of 8-15) are going to come to my property to be pushed to the max physically, mentally, and emotionally. And, all of it is designed to equip you and your boy with the tools needed to thrive in the crazy world in which we live.

If you’re anything like me, ensuring your son becomes the man he is capable of becoming is what keeps you at night more than anything else. And, when you come to the Legacy experience on September 3rd-6th, you’re going to be working alongside me and my boys and 19 other fathers/sons to ensure you have everything you need to help your boy become a man.

If you want to learn more and lock in your spot, go to www.orderofman.com/legacy.

STEVEN PRESSFIELD | The War of Art
01:15:27

The act of creation is something we have a desire to do but just because we desire to create doesn’t make it any easier. In fact, creating and putting your work into the world for others to judge is one of the most challenging things a human can do. There are a lot of reasons for this but ultimately it boils down to what my guest today calls, “resistance.”

I’m honored to be joined by someone I’ve admired and respected for a very long time, Mr. Steven Pressfield, and today we talk about what “resistance” actually is and how it manifests itself differently in people’s lives. We also talk about the arrogance of planning, the culture of virtue, identifying the “soul’s code,” why work can be like war, and how to equip yourself for it.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The voices in your head
  • Putting in the work
  • Improving over time
  • Making better mistakes
  • Working the problem
  • Defining professionalism
  • The amateur mindset
  • Going through a process
  • Finding your calling
  • Playing the long game
  • The artists' journey
  • Infallible wisdom
  • A culture of virtue

STEVEN PRESSFIELD

My guest today is the one and only Steven Pressfield.

Needless to say, many of you are already familiar with at least some of his work, including The War of Art, Do the Work, The Warrior Ethos, and Gates of Fire.

But what a lot of you may not know is that Steven wrote for 27 years before his first novel, The Legend of Bagger Vance, was published. So, obviously, he knows a thing or two about putting in the work and overcoming resistance in all of its forms.

Since then, he’s gone on to sell millions of copies of his books and has become one of the most influential figures in fighting through challenging times, paying your dues, and teaching others how to succeed as creators.

Gents, this one is such a powerful conversation. I hope you enjoy it.

MAINE EVENT

Last week, I talked with you about the Legacy Event which is for fathers and sons but this week I wanted to share our next event, Maine Event, which will be held October 9th-11th with an exclusive Iron Council dinner the evening of the 8th.

Over a period of two days, you’ll work alongside 100 other motivated, ambitious men to create a Battle Plan that will help you roll into 2021 in full stride and ready to seize all that the new year has to offer you.

You’re going to get one-one coaching, group accountability, camaraderie, and the type of conversations and insights that most men just don’t get in their day-to-day activities.

We only have six spots remaining so if you’re even remotely interested, please head to www.orderofman.com/maineevent as quickly as possible to lock in one of the last seats to this incredible experience.

Again, head to www.orderofman.com/maineevent, to learn more and claim your seat.

How to Build a Business and Become an Entrepreneur | RYAN MORAN
01:09:35

Building a business is something I think every man should look into and, while not every man is cut out for the entrepreneurial life, self-employment provides benefits that shouldn’t be overlooked – the flexibility of schedule, the pursuit of passion, and unlimited income potential.

But with all that goes into successfully running a business, starting your own can seem like a daunting, if not impossible, endeavor. Today, I am joined by my friend and serial entrepreneur, Ryan Moran. He is the founder of Capitalism.com and the author of 12 Months to $1 Million. We talk about choosing a winning product, the mindset for building a business, how to stack the deck in your favor, aligning your interest with business growth, and the true purpose of money.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Opening a new chapter
  • An expensive use of energy
  • Growth is pain
  • Improving in the present
  • Creating a meaningful impact
  • Diminishing returns
  • Creating value for others
  • Serving the right people
  • The twelve-month roadmap
  • Building your infrastructure
  • Earning trust first
  • Predictable growth
  • How to get funding
  • Conflicting values

RYAN DANIEL MORAN

My guest today is my good friend and serial entrepreneur, Ryan Moran. He is the founder of Capitalism.com and the author of 12 Months to $1,000,000.

He is also an investor and owns multiple businesses that generate millions of dollars in revenue. And, he has personally helped create over 100 millionaires using the strategies he teaches. In fact, many of the strategies Ryan teaches are the strategies I’ve used to grow Order of Man into what it is today.

Despite his tremendous success, Ryan is extremely down to earth and has a passion for helping other people realize their own dreams through free markets and building passionate, profitable businesses.

LEGACY

Coming off of Father’s Day weekend, I wanted to again let you know about our first-ever Legacy Experience in Maine.

This is a 3 ½ father/son event designed to forge deeper bonds between you and your son, equip you both with the tools, frameworks, and resources you need to thrive, and build up the fortitude and resilience needed to succeed in an insane world.

We’re going to be doing some airsoft, Jiu-Jitsu, hiking, firesides, planning sessions, and some other challenging surprises that you and your son will be talking about for the rest of your life.

If you have a son, nephew, mentee, etc. between the ages of 8-15, I want to invite you to join us September 3rd-6th, 2020 on my property in Maine. You can learn more and register at www.ordeofman.com/legacy.

The Hidden Value of Jiu-Jitsu | NICK ALBIN "CHEWY"
01:01:01

It’s no secret that I’m a huge proponent of Jiu-Jitsu. In fact, I’m sure you guys get sick of me talking about it on the podcast so much. But I do because over the past year and a half, I’ve come to find immense value in the practice and seen the benefits (sometimes hidden) of what it offers.

My guest today is someone who I’ve been following for quite some time. His name is Nick Albin “Chewy” and he’s a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu blackbelt. Today we discuss, the masochistic nature of Jiu-Jitsu, personal responsibility in training, dialing the intensity of your training both up and down, how Jiu-Jitsu can serve as a therapy session of sorts, and the hidden value of the discipline.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Getting into Jiu-Jitsu
  • Dealing with pain
  • Your worst enemy
  • Good training partners
  • Intentional training
  • Prioritizing your routine
  • Training too little
  • Strengthening your body
  • Being ultra-competitive
  • Rolling with students
  • How warriors train
  • Going for the kill
  • Seeing different sides
  • Losing the fear
  • Finding a good gym

NICK ALBIN “CHEWY”

My guest today is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu blackbelt, Nick Albin (affectionately referred to as Chewy). I came across his work as I was studying, learning, and researching Jiu-Jitsu.

He’s got an incredible YouTube channel (Chewjitsu) filled with ideas, strategies, insights, tactics, and mindsets for improving your game. And, he’s been indirectly instrumental in helping me improve my game as I dive deeper down the rabbit hole of something that has become a critical part of my week and life.

LEGACY

This message is for fathers with a son(s) between the ages of 8 -15. I know that Father’s Day is coming up this weekend and it’s likely that you’ll be getting an ugly tie and/or some homemade arts and crafts.

That’s all fine and great but you know as a father that giving is better than getting. So, if you’re looking to give your son(s) an experience they’ll never forget, consider joining us at our first-ever Legacy Experience in Maine.

This is a 3 ½ day event designed to forge tighter bonds with you and your boy and give both him and you the tools, resources, frameworks, and mindset to thrive, as men, in challenging and uncertain times.

You’re both going to be pushed physically, mentally, and emotionally but you’re going to leave with a better relationship and the skills you need to usher your son into manhood.

The event is going to be held September 3rd – 6th and we only have 5 spots remaining. Learn more and lock in your spot at www.orderofman.com/legacy.

Men in Politics | SEAN PARNELL
01:10:19

Politics is just something we don’t talk a whole lot about in the Order of Man movement. I think it’s clear why. Masculinity isn’t reserved for one side of the political aisle but I do believe there are some underlying principles of masculinity (and the betterment of society) that tend to be politicized.

And, so, I’ve rejected the notion of talking about politics or being even remotely political but it’s clear to me that these are conversations that need to be had. And, I can think of no better person to talk with us about it today than Sean Parnell, an Army Ranger veteran, New York Times Bestselling Author, and candidate for Congress. Today we talk about servant leadership, the American Dream, trust, power grabs, and men in politics.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Being a warrior
  • Learning lessons
  • Servant leadership
  • Finding the right answer
  • Dirty politics
  • Raising campaign money
  • Voting in leaders
  • When tribalism wins
  • Cultural shifts
  • Political systems
  • Defending freedom
  • Coming home from war
  • Economic fallout
  • Common sense thinking
  • Personal responsibility
  • Showing gratitude
  • Delivering justice

SEAN PARNELL

My guest today is Sean Parnell. He served as an Army Ranger with the 10th Mountain Division. His platoon, nicknamed “Outlaw Platoon” killed over 350 enemy fighters in some of the biggest firefights in the Afghan war.

Upon returning to the states and after serious injuries (including neurological injuries), Sean was medically discharged from the military. He went on to write his New York Times Bestselling book, Outlaw Platoon, and is now a regular contributor on Fox as well as appearances on CNN, MSNBC, and many others.

He is also the co-founder of the American Warrior Initiative and has since thrown his hat in the ring of politics and is running for Congress in Pennsylvania’s 17th Congressional District.

The Path To Redemption | WES WATSON
01:14:30

All of us have fallen behind or gotten off track somewhere in our lives (some more than others). Only some decide to get back on track and take control of their lives – to redeem themselves if you will. And, who doesn’t respect the hell out of a man who has hit rock bottom and risen from the ashes?

That’s why I wanted to invite Wes Watson on the podcast. He’s arguably one of the most influential men I’ve had the honor of talking with because of his no-BS, straight-talking approach to improving your life. Today we talked about Wes’ 10-year prison sentence, the power of gratitude in dire circumstances, overcoming regret and shame, developing a new stream of consciousness, and how to build your own redemption story.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Cognitive dissonance
  • Running from pain
  • Personal growth
  • External distractions
  • Levering emotional motivation
  • Giving yourself away
  • Bringing worth to life
  • Creating daily systems
  • Regret is your guideline
  • Shifting your mindset
  • Another chance at life
  • Sharing your F*ck-ups
  • Re-writing books
  • Managing negative energy
  • Positive mental attitude
  • Elevating yourself
  • Living out of an abundance

WES WATSON

My guest today is Wes Watson, strength and fitness coach, but he’s so much more than that. Wes simply uses health and fitness as a medium for transforming your mind and your life.

Wes spent 10-years in prison and was quickly spiraling into a life of chaos and destruction but while serving his prison sentence, he began to transform his life through the power of his thoughts and daily actions.

After being released from prison, Wes has become one of the most powerful voices in self-development, has built a massively successful business, and has inspired thousands of people to transform their own lives through his mentorship and coaching.

You’re going to hear in this conversation why I wanted Wes to join us as the fire he brings can’t help but motivate and inspire you to get your life on track.

IRON COUNCIL

Gents, we’re rapidly approaching father’s day and, as we do, it was important to me that inside of the Iron Council we have a discussion about redeeming the relationship with our fathers.

Regardless of your relationship with your father, it’s likely that some conversations have been left unsaid and there is a strain between you and him. And, regardless of your ability/desire to reconcile with your father, there are steps you can take to come to terms with the relationship that you have with him so you can drive on in your own life with clarity, focus, direction, and purpose as a man.

These aren’t comfortable conversations, challenges, and discussions we’re having inside the Iron Council this month but they’re completely necessary if you want to break the chains that may have been holding you back from becoming the man you’re wanting to become – not the boy in his father’s shadow.

If you’re ready to have these conversations, challenges, accountably, brotherhood, and more, join us at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

MAT FRASER | Becoming the Fittest Man on Earth
01:20:47

Gentlemen, my guest today is 4-time CrossFit Games Champion, Mat Fraser. I’ve always been fascinated with what makes some of the most successful men on the planet tick. That fascination became the foundation for this podcast and I can’t tell you how honored I am to have this man, Mat Fraser, - someone I’ve admired and respected for years - join us to talk about his unusual and extraordinary effort and work ethic.

We talk about his background in Olympic Weightlifting, building self-sufficiency, the need for sacrifice and singular focus, how to establish your core values and rules for life, the power of obsession, and ultimately, his path to becoming the Fittest Man on Earth.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Training at home
  • Online competition
  • Risks in CrossFit
  • Hitting your goals
  • An Olympic hopeful
  • A level of sacrifice
  • Putting in the work
  • Keeping things simple
  • Finding satisfaction
  • Measuring success
  • Daily motivation
  • Chasing gratification
  • Identifying values in life
  • Living a simple life
  • Establishing rule to life
  • External pressure

MAT FRASER

My guest today is 4-time CrossFit Games Champion, Mat Fraser. In an ultra-competitive environment, he has found a way to apply himself and achieve insane amounts of work ethic and drive to become the best in his field – for years!

He comes from an Olympic Weightlifting background had planned on going that route until he suffered a back injury in 2009 before shifting his focus to CrossFit.

Most of you are probably familiar to some degree with Mat and I’ve been following him for years now but I was surprised at his level of humility. In fact, he’s probably one of the most down-to-earth men I’ve had on this podcast in spite of his tremendous level of success and accomplishment.

I hope that you enjoy listening to our conversation as much as I enjoyed having it.

IRON COUNCIL.

Gentlemen, I know that last week I told you about this month’s topic inside the Iron Council but I thought I’d bring it up again because, after the first week of our discussions and challenges, it is apparent how important the relationship is between a man and his father.

And, it’s apparent that many of us men have estranged relationships with our dad. This is unfortunate since most of us have learned (for better or worse) how to show up as a man from our fathers.

When you band with us in the Iron Council, you’ll be able to join in on these powerful conversations and participate in the challenges designed to push you into the deep end of your past, your potential, and the narratives you consciously or subconsciously lived your life by.

MAT BEST | Forging Your Own Path
01:22:37

Guys, I’ve got a great one lined up with you today with the one and only, Mat Best with Black Rifle Coffee Company. We do things a little different as we answer some live YouTube questions but we cover everything from learning to focus on what’s important, building confidence through creation, overcoming introversion, finding something that drives you, dealing with rejection, the power of different perspectives, and learning to become your own man.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Crushing your goals
  • Staying focused
  • Family time
  • Being better than average
  • Developing confidence
  • Prioritizing family
  • Going against the grain
  • Investing in yourself
  • Creating positivity
  • Putting in the work
  • Hating failure
  • Keys to success
  • Manufacturing hardship
  • Embarrassing moments
  • Figuring things out
  • Planning out your day
  • Creating your environment

MAT BEST

My guest today is Mat Best and he is the co-founder of Black Rifle Coffee Company. Every time I have the opportunity to talk with Mat, I walk away thinking how down to earth this guy is in the face of some incredible accomplishments.

He is a former Army Ranger, successful entrepreneur, and New York Times Bestselling author of Thank You For My Service. And, he’s someone who has figured out what makes him happy, what he’s passionate about, and learned to go all-in on that pursuit.

IRON COUNCIL

This month, inside the Iron Council, has the potential to become the toughest, most engaging, challenging months we’ve had since we launched 5 years.

The title of this month’s topic is “The Father/Son Atonement” and we’re going to be discussing and working towards bridging the gap between fathers and their sons. It’s clear to me that the lack of fatherhood is a real problem in modern culture and after having one of my YouTube videos go viral (over 1,300,000 views) on the subject of fatherhood, this is clearly a topic that needs to be addressed.

If you decide to band with us this month, you’ll get access to the assignment, a Battle Team of 14 other men who will help hold you accountable to change and progress, and the challenges we issue that are going to push you further past your comfort zone then you’ve ever gone.

But that’s where the real change takes place and this is exactly where you’re going to want to be if you’re ready to expand.

How to Make Fear Your Ally | AKSHAY NANAVATI
01:15:45

Fear is something every single one of us deals with (probably on a daily basis). Unfortunately, too many men consciously or unconsciously allow fear to keep them from going after what they want most. So, how can you use fear to your advantage as opposed to a hindrance?

That’s exactly what I talk about today with my guest Akshay Nanavati, the author of Fearvana: How to Turn Fear into Health, Wealth, and Happiness. We cover the critical importance of becoming aware and accepting fear, flawed mental health, the idea that there are no “bad” or “negative” emotions, why you need to learn to explore the edges of life, and how to make fear your ally.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Confronting the fear of stillness
  • Breaking sobriety
  • Staying in the fight
  • Running marathons
  • Serving the greater good
  • Self-destructive behavior
  • Seeking out suffering
  • Reframe Your Experiences
  • Researching neuroscience
  • Taking it to the next level
  • Self-fulfilling prophecy
  • Norman human response
  • Experiencing diversity
  • It’s about the struggle
  • Seek out new problems
  • Owning your reality

AKSHAY NANAVATI

My guest today is a fascinating man. His name is Akshay Nanavati and he is a Marine veteran, speaker, entrepreneur, ultra-runner, and author of the book, Fearvana.

He’s overcome so much including a drug addiction after his service, a blood disorder that doctors told him could kill him in boot camp, and combat where his job was to walk in front of vehicles to find IED’s.

He’s dealt with PTSD, survivor’s guilt, alcoholism, and depression, and, after all of that, has somehow found the power to overcome all of it and live a life of fulfillment and adventure as a skydiver, mountain biker, scuba diver, and rock/ice climber.

Men, you’re definitely going to enjoy this conversation and use what Akshay teaches as fuel to light your own fire.

IRON COUNCIL.

Men, the Iron Council continues to grow as more and more men are seeing the power of what we’re doing by banding with other men who are willing to hold each other accountable to accomplishing the most out of their lives.

We just had Jack Donovan join us for one of our exclusive Iron Council sessions and we’re in the process of bringing on more incredible men to join us for our weekly calls.

In addition to that, we’re going to give you the framework and network to transform your life from what you’ve always wanted to what you’re actually experiencing. And, that is our whole objective – to bridge the gap between what you know you should be doing and what you’re actually doing.

GREG ANDERSON | Police Officer Calls into Question Enforcement of Unconstitutional Orders
01:18:40

There is no doubt that many of us have begun to call into question the enforcement of unconstitutional orders and Covid-19 restrictions, including my guest today, Police Officer with the Port of Seattle, Greg Anderson.

Greg is currently on administrative leave pending an investigation which will likely lead to his termination for insubordination after posting a video on his personal Instagram page expressing his concerns with police officers enforcing unlawful and unconstitutional orders. It’s obviously a very touchy subject and situation but a conversation that needs to be had.

Today, we talk about how we must unite as a country, the use of discretion by police officers, living in fear, the government’s power/control grab, and drawing a line in the sand, and standing by your convictions.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • It’s not about COVID-19
  • Violating social media policy
  • Keeping it above the fray
  • Operating in tribes
  • Doing the right thing
  • Inspiring officers
  • Fighting for freedom
  • The violent side of humanity
  • Losing your mind
  • Mitigating risk
  • Living in fear
  • Focus on the mission
  • Reckless behavior
  • Not picking sides
  • Opening the floodgates
  • Holding true to principles

GREG ANDERSON

My guest today is Greg Anderson and, although you may not know his name, it’s likely that you’ve seen his video in which he talked about his concerns, as a police officer for the Port of Seattle, of enforcing illegal and unconstitutional orders in the wake of Covid-19.

In addition to serving his community as a law enforcement officer, he is an Army Ranger veteran serving multiple combat tours including one to Ramadi, Iraq in the most hostile and dangerous environments one can imagine. Greg is also a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu blackbelt and the owner of Electric North Jiu-Jitsu and has recently become an outspoken advocate for individual rights, liberty, and freedom.

I think our conversation is likely to fire a lot of you up which is exactly what is needed in times like these.

IRON COUNCIL

Men, I’m going to hit the pause button on my conversation with Greg because I want to talk with you about our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council.

I’ve received several messages from Iron Council members over the past several months that have told me that the Iron Council has literally saved their life. And, although I won’t get into the specifics, it’s inspiring to me to know that the work we’re doing inside the brotherhood is getting men on the right track and back on the path to thriving and succeeding.

There are a lot of ways we facilitate this but for the sake of time, I’ll tell you that the two biggest factors that go into what we do inside the Iron Council is the framework and the network – the framework point you in the right direction and make the right moves and the network to keep you on track and give you the occasional kick in the ass when you need it.

How to Size People Up and Predict Their Behavior | ROBIN DREEKE
01:24:20

The ability to accurately size someone up could spell the difference between life and death, whether you or the other guy gets the promotion, if that prospect purchases from you, or if she decides to date/marry you.

And, I can think of no better person to talk with us about predicting human behavior than Robin Dreeke, who spent more than two decades as a behavior analyst for the FBI. Today, we talk about being wary of trusting your gut, the difference between your gut and intuition, why if you’re betrayed by others you may have actually betrayed yourself, manipulation, judgment, how to predict human behavior, and why it matters.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Packaging human physiology
  • Developing relationships
  • Projecting blame
  • Emotional hijacking
  • It’s all about judging
  • You can’t please everybody
  • Positive manipulation
  • Situational awareness
  • Building muscle memory
  • When to trust your gut
  • Non-verbal body language
  • Detecting deception
  • Strategizing relationships
  • Identifying non-tangibles motives
  • Become a better leader

ROBIN DREEKE

My guest today is Robin Dreeke and he spent more than two decades as a behavior analyst for the FBI. He’s dealt with extremely complex situations from handling Russian spies to navigating the internal politics on the Bureau.

He’s written three books, It’s Not All About Me, The Code of Trust, and his latest, Sizing People Up where he shares a six-step system he developed to predict anyone’s behavior based on their words, goals, action, and situation.

This was such a fascinating discussion and one that if the lessons are applied, it will drastically improve every facet of your life.

IRON COUNCIL

Gentlemen, let me pause the conversation very quickly to talk with you about our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council.

Membership in the Iron Council is up 15% over the past 2-3 weeks because men are beginning to see the value of banding with other strong, successful, like-minded men. And, that is exactly what you’re going to get when you band with us inside the Iron Council.

First, we’re going to help you identify your track to run on – not ours, but yours. And, once you have identified that track, we’re going to give you the framework, tools, and accountability to ensure that you stay the course until completion.

If you know there is more inside of you but don’t quite know how to unlock it, band with us, and we’ll show you exactly how to do it. You can learn more and lock in your spot at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

The Power of Uncomfortable Truths | SEAN WHALEN
01:25:47

The truth is often uncomfortable. And, frankly, most of us aren’t willing to take a deep, hard look into what we know to be true. We do this because we’re afraid. Afraid of what we might see. Afraid of what it may expose in ourselves. Afraid of what the truth may require us to do moving forward.

My guest today is a friend and long-term mentor of mine. His name is Sean Whalen and one thing he’s been consistent about his desire to seek and share the truth. And, he’s revealed, for better and worse, some truths about myself that I was unwilling to acknowledge for a very long time. Today we talk about why some people despise the success of others, acknowledging what kind of men you need to become to achieve what you want, why most people are blissfully dissatisfied, and the power of embracing uncomfortable truths.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Producing results
  • Tearing others down
  • Identifying with pain
  • Building a physique
  • Addictive patterns
  • Breaking social contracts
  • Validating mediocrity
  • Change your circle
  • Habits & rituals
  • Implanting your vision
  • Loving yourself
  • Becoming a machine

 

SEAN WHALEN

My guest today is my good friend and long-term mentor, Sean Whalen. He has been instrumental in helping me build Order of Man into what it is but more importantly, me into who I am.

I don’t always agree with or, to a degree, get along with him but I believe that is the power of a coach and mentor – someone who you can respect but challenges you to look at life in a way that is difficult and uncomfortable.

And Sean certainly makes people feel uncomfortable. He says out loud what most people believe to be things you don’t say at all and, in the process, his videos and messages have been viewed hundreds of millions of times. Obviously, he’s a very polarizing man but he forces you to look at situations and events in new ways and has personally helped me achieve some incredible results in my life.

IRON COUNCIL

Gents, let me pause the conversation very quickly. I’ve seen a tremendous uptick in new members in the Iron Council and I can only imagine the reason is that in times of uncertainty, men look to bring stability and order to the chaos.

And, that’s exactly what we’re doing inside the Iron Council – giving you the tools and framework to predictably and efficiently produce results in your life.

If you’re trying to start a business, rekindle a romantic relationship, connect with your kids, lose that spare tire, build wealth, become more influential, or any other goal that you may be working on, the Iron Council, has what you need to make it a reality.

When you join us, you’ll get the tools and framework you need to do what you’ve simply been daydreaming about for a very long time.

If you’re ready to get to work, join us. We’re not going to do it for you but we do have a track for you to run on and the accountability that comes from a brotherhood of loyal, committed, successful men.

Being Reasonable in an Age of Unreason | DAVE RUBIN
01:09:06

Reason seems to be in increasingly short supply, which is unfortunate considering some of the messes we’ve found ourselves in will only be solved through reasonable thought, ideas, and people. Also unfortunate is that those who are the loudest seem to be the most unreasonable and only wish to perpetuate the problems we have in modern society and culture.

Today, I am joined by the one and only, Dave Rubin, New York Times Bestselling author of, Don’t Burn This Book: Thinking for Yourself in an Age of Unreason. What I like most about Dave and this conversation is that he’s willing to talk about the things you’re not “supposed” to talk about including the myth of the gender gap, why “hate speech” should be protected speech, why not everyone is a Nazi as perpetuated by what he calls, the “lefties,” and ultimately how to be reasonable in a world that seems to be anything but.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Moving towards equality
  • Governmental control
  • Consolidating power
  • Empirical truths
  • The human spirit
  • Valuing individuality
  • Protecting free speech
  • Classic Liberalism
  • Thinking for yourself
  • The best path forward
  • American privilege
  • Be the vocal majority

DAVE RUBIN

As I said before, my guest today is Dave Rubin and I’m sure many of you are already familiar with him and have some preconceived notions about who he is and what he stands for.

I’ve been following him for some time now and am fascinated with his journey from left-leaning progressive to a free-thinking classical liberal. He is the host of the Rubin Report and spent almost two years touring and opening for his friend and mentor, Jordan Peterson.

His background is in standup comedy but he has become extremely well-known for his podcast where he’s interviewed Jordan Peterson, Sam Harris, Ben Shapiro, Larry King, Dan Crenshaw, Adam Carolla, and so many more.

Today, he’s here to talk with us about thinking freely and openly about some of our culture’s most polarizing subjects.

IRON COUNCIL

Gentlemen, let me hit the pause button on the conversation and introduce you to the Iron Council.

I am amazed by the growth we’ve been experiencing over the past several weeks and I believe it’s because men are beginning to see the value in banding with other men who have their back and want them to succeed.

If you were to strip away everything from the Iron Council, that’s what it’s all about – a band of brothers who will support, encourage, and hold you accountable. And, if you’re like most men, that isn’t something that you have in your life.

And, even if you do, the conversations stay on the surface and never get to the heart of what really matters and all that you’re trying to accomplish as a family man, business owner, and leader in your community.

If you’re ready to forge a powerful bond with like-minded men and chart the path that will lead you to where you want to go, I invite you to join the Iron Council at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

Everything is F*cked | MARK MANSON
01:21:37

Hope is something most of us believe is a necessity in order to progress. Without it, would you be driven to do anything meaningful in your life? It’s hope that convinces you of potential rewards on the other side of your efforts. But what if the way you’ve been looking at hope isn’t help you but hindering? And, if that’s the case, is there a more practical, pragmatic way for you to approach hopefulness in a way that will serve you best?

That’s what today’s conversation is all about. I’m joined by New York Times Bestselling Author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck and Everything is F*cked, Mark Manson. We talk about the uncomfortable truth few people are willing to admit to themselves, the difference between Master Morality and Slave Morality, how everyone is driven by what he calls, “a God Value,” how pain is the universal constant, and why, in the midst of everything being horrible, you can still have hope.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Getting through it together
  • The new normal
  • A need for certainty
  • Create a daily structure
  • The thinking brain
  • The process of maturity
  • Social accountability
  • Implementing habits
  • Finding new behavior
  • Shifting your perception
  • The uncomfortable truth
  • Gaining approval
  • The need for meaning
  • Sharing your story
  • Instinctual morality
  • Victimhood culture

MARK MANSON

My guest today is the one and only, Mark Manson, and it’s very likely that you are already very familiar with him, or at least, his last two books, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck and Everything is F*cked.

He is a New York Times Bestselling Author and a self-described thinker and life enthusiast. Part of the reason for his tremendous success is his no BS approach to self-development. In fact, that’s the reason why I follow him and his words closely. In an environment and popular culture designed to make everyone feel good about themselves, Mark would rather bring to light the uncomfortable truths few are willing to deal with.

Guys, I think you’re going to like this one as much as I enjoyed the conversation. So, sit back, take some notes, and listen to the way it really is.

IRON COUNCIL

Gents, our digital brotherhood, the Iron Council continues to grow in these uncertain times. I think that’s because it’s times like these that really cause us to reflect on the type of men we are and how we’re showing up.

For a long time, I knew that I was capable of so much more but it was frustrating knowing that there was a huge gap between what I knew I was capable of and what I was actually doing.

I started hiring mentors and surrounding myself with good and capable men and that’s when things really started to take a turn for the better.

The problem for most men is that they don’t know where connect with the type of men I’m talking about. That’s what the Iron Council is for and, without beating a dead horse about it, if you want to thrive in all aspects of your life, band with other men. It really is that powerful.

Courage Under Fire | OMAR “CRISPY” AVILA
01:07:04

What does it take to exhibit extreme courage under fire? I wish I could tell you there was an exact formula for performing well under life and death pressure but there isn’t. But what I can tell you is that my guest today, Omar ‘Crispy’ Avila is a man who has done just that.

When in Iraq, his vehicle was hit by an IED sending it six feet in the air. I’m not going to ruin the story by telling you about the resulting fallout and how Crispy conducted himself but I will say you’re not going to want to miss it. We also talk about using humor as a way to calm a situation, overcoming survivor’s guilt, how to train properly for unknown events, and how every man can learn to develop courage under fire.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Serving your community
  • Letting your guard down
  • Making light of a situation
  • Comedy as therapy
  • Joining the infantry
  • Moving forward in life
  • Laying down fire
  • Extended deployment
  • Losing faith in God
  • Keeping your composure
  • The Green Zone
  • Flying into Germany
  • Focus under chaos
  • Survivors guilt
  • The recovery process
  • Finding inner peace

OMAR ‘CRISPY’ AVILA

My guest today is Omar ‘Crispy’ Avila and he is a retired army combat veteran. But more than that he is someone who is extremely influential in the veteran community and has used his unfortunate circumstances to lift and inspire millions of people across the planet.

He sustained catastrophic damage to his body when his vehicle was hit with an IED and survived over 75% of his body burned and been rendered nearly blind.

I had the opportunity to meet him at SHOT Show several months ago and invited him to join us on the podcast because I have always been inspired by how he lives his life, uses humor with the Black Rifle Coffee Company team to inspire, and the kind of man he is.

PRIORITIZE AND EXECUTE

If you’re anything like me, it’s easy for you to fall into the trap of consumption. I mean, you’re listening to this podcast right now which can be beneficial but if you never apply any of what you learn, is it even useful?

This is the trap of the self-development space – consumption without production.

But in the Iron Council for the month of May, we’re talking about prioritizing the information you have and the objectives you’ve identified for yourself and putting them into action.

It’s about unpacking what you want to accomplish in your health, relationships, business, and life, identifying the “order of operations,” and putting in the work required to make it happen.

If you fall into “paralysis by analysis,” and often consume more than you produce, this is the month for you to band with 530 like-minded men who will help you accomplish more in the next 90 days than you ever have in a year.

How to Rewire Your Mind and Body | SCOTT CARNEY
01:07:41

“Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” Most of us have heard some variation of that quote accredited to Viktor Frankl but most of us don’t know how to manage that space effectively and condition our minds and bodies to respond properly.

That’s why today’s conversation with New York Times Bestselling Author, Scott Carney, is crucial. During our discussion, we talk about the gap between stimulus and response, how to put ourselves into a highly-effective flow state, fight and flight chemistry, and how to rewire your mind and body for maximum results.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The placebo effect
  • Western medicine
  • Learning to be resilient
  • Fight or flight responses
  • Giving yourself stress
  • Connecting to the environment
  • The ultimate stress
  • Walking your own path
  • Unmitigated horror
  • Reliving your emotional pass
  • Living the status quo
  • Overriding your response
  • Throwing kettlebells
  • Practicing trust and empathy
  • A different point of reference
  • Creating bandwidth

SCOTT CARNEY

My guest today is New York Times Bestselling, Scott Carney, author of What Doesn’t Kill Us, and his new book, The Wedge.

He is an investigative journalist and anthropologist. He’s done work for Wired, Men’s Journal, Playboy, Discover, Outside, and Fast Company and he gained a lot of notoriety as he trained with Wim Hof. Originally, he intended on debunking a lot of Wim’s teachings but found the practices to be life-changing and a critical part of his life and work.

Scott’s been a friend for several years since he talked with us about his book, What Doesn’t Kill Us and you’re going to hear how much excitement he has for life. Quite frankly, it’s infectious.

IRON COUNCIL

As we close out the month of April in the Iron Council, I wanted to give you the heads up and let you know that for the month of May, we’ll be covering the topic of Prioritize and Execute.

Obviously, we’re living in some very interesting times and it’s becoming increasingly difficult for many men to navigate the uncertain waters. So, for the month of May, we’ll be doing a deep dive into effective strategies for organizing and prioritizing your life and, more important, taking massive action that will produce the biggest results.

We’ll uncover variables that are keeping you back and distracting you from what you want to achieve and give you the opportunity to band with 500+ high-achieving men to hold you accountable and potentially give you the kick in the pants you need.

I’m sure, by now, you’re aware of the powerful team an Echelon Front led by Navy SEAL Commander, Jocko Willink. At this point, I’ve had the majority of his team on the podcast including my guest today, Mike Sarraille.

Today, Mike talks with us about the power of the veteran community in the civilian sector. We go into some topics that aren’t usually addressed regarding transitioning military members including biases against veterans, the bitterness and entitlement some veterans develop, translatable skills from military to civilian life, and, ultimately, how we put our nation’s toughest warriors to work.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Joining the Marines
  • The demands of work
  • What’s truly important
  • Veteran suicide
  • Marching on Washington
  • Proving your worth
  • Finding the best
  • Producing value
  • Finding your passion
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Process of alimentation
  • Putting in your time
  • Positive Intent
  • Become irreplaceable
  • The pursuit of excellence
  • Feeling undervalued
  • Translatable skills
  • Focusing on soft skills
  • After action review
  • Transitioning soldiers out

MIKE SARAILLE

My guest today is Mike Sarraille. He is a retired Recon Marine and  Navy SEAL and, more recently the co-founder of EF Overwatch and leadership instructor/strategic advisor for Echelon Front.

He served alongside Jocko Willink and Leif Babin with SEAL Team THREE and played a pivotal role in the Battle of Ramadi in 2006. He also served as the primary leadership instructor for all officers graduating from the SEAL training pipeline and worked in the Joint Special Operations Command where he completed multiple combat tours.

Mike is a recipient of the Silver Star, six Bronze Stars, two Defense Meritorious Service Medals, and a Purple Heart. Today he is here to talk with us about his experience and how to put our nation’s warriors to work.

IRON COUNCIL

The Iron Council is growing. I think part of the reason for that is, during times of crisis, men know and have a desire to step into the positions that will best serve their families and communities. It’s built into our DNA to lead, especially in times of crisis.

And, that’s exactly what we’re doing to equip the men who band with us inside our exclusive brotherhood, The Iron Council. When you join with us, we’re going to give you the foundation for growth, success, and effective leadership as a father, husband, business owner, and community leader.

And, on top of that, you’re going to have a path to run on and a place where you can develop the camaraderie most men don’t get outside of military service or team sports.

If you’re ready to step up and want the framework and the accountability to do so, join us in the Iron Council by going to www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

Savage Son | JACK CARR
56:37

My repeat guest, friend, former Navy SEAL, and author of the James Reece series which includes Terminal List, True Believer, and his newest (released today), Savage Son.

His name is Jack Carr and I take every opportunity I can to talk with him. And, if you’ve listened to any of our previous episodes, you’ll know exactly why. Jack is one of the most genuine men I know and I’ve always been fascinated with his transition from warrior to author.

Today, we talk about putting yourself in the public eye, pursuing something you’ve always been interested in, how military combat compares to civilian life and the life of a writer and forging the path you’ve always wanted to walk.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Emerging opportunities
  • Leveling the playing field
  • Social media
  • Providing value
  • Those who sacrificed
  • Wasted bandwidth
  • The Cold War
  • Who you follow
  • An unassuming demeanor
  • Being kind to people
  • Flipping your switch
  • What’s next
  • The hero’s journey
  • Dealing with bureaucracy 
  • Adapting quickly
  • Standard operating procedures

JACK CARR

My guest today is the one and only Jack Carr. He spent over 20 years in Naval Special Warfare as a SEAL Sniper, Troop Commander, and a Task Unit Commander leading a team in Iraq and Afghanistan.

It’s probably a big reason his last three books are so extremely credible – he’s used his decades of combat experience as the foundation for the immense amount of research that goes into his works.

Jack is also an avid hunter, a husband, and a father. He’s also a helluva guy as I’ve gotten to know him over the past several years and enjoyed our friendship.

And an update since we originally recorded this episode at SHOT Show several months ago, Jack’s book, Terminal List will become a TV Series with Chris Pratt playing James Reece.

I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did.

IRON COUNCIL

I’ve got to say that regardless of the issues you may be dealing with due to the fallout of Coronavirus, this time truly can be a blessing in disguise if you’re willing to look at it that way.

I can’t think of a time where I’ve been more focused and distraction-free in my life than right now. Over the past four weeks, I’ve…

  • Lost 11lbs and 2.5% body fat
  • Increased revenue by 23% over last month
  • Completed my gym build-out
  • Completed my podcast studio renovation
  • Read 6 books
  • Completed the outline of my next book
  • Secured 7 high-caliber podcast guests
  • Appeared on 12 podcasts
  • Reached over 100,000 YouTube subscribers

I don’t tell you this to brag. I tell you this because there is a tremendous opportunity for you to crush your life right now. And, if you’re interested in how I and thousands of other men are doing it, consider joining us inside the Iron Council.

I’ve told you enough about it by now but I’d strongly encourage you to get off the sidelines and into the game so you too can produce the results you’re after and squeeze the most out of every minute you have.

Head to www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil to learn more and lock in your spot.

How to Think Like a Rocket Scientist | OZAN VAROL
01:05:18

We’ve all heard the term, “It’s not rocket science.” And, while that is true of most conversations, topics, and activities, there are benefits to thinking about problems the way a rocket scientist does.

Today, I am joined by Ozan Varol, a rocket scientist who formerly worked with NASA. In today’s conversation, we talk about what it means to test as you fly and fly as you test, the difference between strategies and tactics and why it matters, why it’s important to give you mental space to play, and why thinking like a rocket scientist will help you make giant leaps in your personal and professional life.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Thinking practically
  • Conceiving ideas
  • Questioning assumptions
  • Breaking down systems
  • Creating new markets
  • Celebrating failure
  • Learning from failure
  • Doing things differently
  • Surviving your own success
  • Thinking you’re a failure
  • Reframing questions
  • Generating better answers
  • Making better decisions
  • The worst-case scenario
  • Find your breaking point

OZAN VAROL

My guest today is Ozan Varol. He was born in Istanbul and, at the age of 17, he moved to the United States alone to study astrophysics.

While he was there, he served on the operations team for the Mars Exploration Rovers. If that wasn’t enough, he then pivoted and graduated first in his class from law school and earned the highest grade point average in his law school’s history.

He now teaches law as a professor and his works have been featured in the Wall Street Journal,  Newsweek, TIME, CNN, and the Washington Post.

And, today, he is here to share some of his knowledge with us from his new book, Think Like a Rocket Scientist.

IRON COUNCIL

The Power of Vision Driven Leadership | MICHAEL HYATT
01:06:35

When most of us think about leadership, we think about inspiring, motivating, and influencing others. But rarely do we think deeply about our vision for a business, organization, or family. Ironic considering vision is the foundation of inspiration, motivation, and influence.

Today, I am privileged to be joined by a man who has been a tremendous leader to me on my path to build and lead the Order of Man movement. We cover so much in this conversion including the importance of a “vision grid,” how to effectively respond to resistance, four characteristics of great leadership, the difference between your “circle of concern” and your “circle of influence,” and the power of vision-driven leadership.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The science of different things
  • The power of simplicity
  • Distilling information
  • Where all change begins
  • Casting vision
  • Hacking your belief system
  • Delusional vs. believable
  • The scope of possibilities
  • Vision vs. strategy
  • Adjusting your vision
  • Fear of missing out
  • Diagnosing your life 36:40
  • Finding inspiration
  • Being able to sell it
  • An inspirational-deficit world
  • Think of the end from the beginning

MICHAEL HYATT

My guest today is Michael Hyatt. He is an author, podcaster, speaker, and former chairman of Thomas Nelson publishing.

I came across Michael’s work years ago as I was launching the Order of Man podcast and for the last 5 years, I’ve been following his advice and implementing his strategies for growing and leading a movement, building effective organizational strategies, and taking charge of my business and personal life.

So, when his team reached out requesting to have Michael on our podcast, I jumped at the opportunity to have a conversation with a man who has been extremely influential in my life.

He is a New York Times Bestselling author and today, he is here to talk with us about his new book, The Vision Driven Leader.

IRON COUNCIL

This month (April 2020) in the Iron Council, we’re discussing and implementing strategies from our monthly conversation, A Life Examined.

In the midst of all this Coronavirus stuff, it’s likely that you have a bit more time on your hands than normal and, rather than waste this valuable time, you ought to consider using it as an opportunity to learn and grow.

And, that’s exactly where the Iron Council comes in. When you band with us, you’ll have access to our monthly assignments, challenges, accountability systems and tools, and brotherhood all designed to help you make the most of every day.

And, this is a great time to contemplate the purpose of your life and formulate a plan for becoming the man you have a desire to become.
