It All Started With a Fist w/ Tristan Tate
Every single decision we make is ultimately going to lead us somewhere. The ripples cause by our choices can end up in places we'v never imagined. For Tristan Tate, it was very much the same. From growing up in a poverty stricken neighborhood to living in a multi-million dollar house and owning a fleet of luxury cars, it all began with the decision to throw a punch. Today, Tristan and I talked about his journey from fight to cam studio king and everything in between.

From Groundskeeper to High Rise Living w/ Dylan "Moneybags" Madden
Dylan was living about 3 hours from me in Charleston, South Carolina and was looking to earn a living outside of a traditional 9-5 gig. He was driving for Uber, doing some grounds keeping work, and building the odd website here and there. With Dylan, it wasn't until he realized that he didn't so much have to create products to sell as he could help other creators get their products sold. He started working with other creators and helping them launch their products when he took off like a rocket as a freelance "project manager" as it were. Today we spoke about his journey as well as some tips on what those looking to start careers as freelancers can be doing.

The Order of Man w/Ryan Michler
Ryan Michler is a Husband, Father, Combat Veteran, and the founder of The Order of Man. Having grown up without a father in his life, Ryan was slated to become another statistic of a fatherless home had it not been for the influence of other positive male role models in his life.  As Ryan tells us, he hit rock bottom roughly 11 years ago where he had to come to a decision to start taking responsibility for his life and set out on a journey to become the best version of himself that he could possibly be. Almost 5 years ago, Ryan Created TheOrderOfMan.com as a means to be able to have conversations and learn from great men doing great things. Little did he know the impact that the OoM would have on Men everywhere who were also on a similar path of self improvement.  Now, as the host of The Order of Man Podast, Ryan took the time this past week to sit down and talk with me about the importance of fathers, men rising to the occasion, and the duty that every man has not only to himself, but to his family, his peers, and his community.

A Father's Journey w/ Tim Beckett
Every Man has either lived through, is currently going through, or has heard the horror story of what happens to a Man throughout, during, and after a divorce. The sad reality is that the family laws in this country are stacked heavily against Men. Many Men will lose sight of who they are, who they were meant to be, and the kind of life they want after going through such an ordeal. Tim Beckett is a rare gem who not only decided that it was time to end his marriage, but shortly after decided that he was going to take full control of his life, not just for the sake of his children, but for the sake of his own soul.

The Killing Of Hunter Drew w/ Zac Small
These days, nearly everyone is wearing a mask. No, I'm not talking about the coronavirus. I'm talking about the mask that we each put on everytime we leave the house of hop onto social media. For some, it's a means to express their thoughts and beliefs without fear of any repercussion from the world and those with differing views and opinions. Zac Small is a Navy Veteran, a Husband, a Father of two, the founder of TheFamilyAlpha.com (Where he used the pen name ,"Hunter Drew"), The Co-Founder of The FraternityOfExcellence.com an online community of exceptional men looking to improve themselves in every aspect of their lives, and the founder of LeadershipandAction.com which is his latest production. Zac began writing under a pen name when he worked as a federal employee and the context of his writing ran the risk of him being doxxed and shunned in today's "hyper-woke" society. His works on masculinity, family, fatherhood, manhood, and marriage have helped countless men come back from the brink of destruction. After quitting his job and becoming fully self employed, he came to the realization that he too was still wearing a mask and felt that he owed to himself and the men who's lives he sought to improve to rip away the mask and be who he truly is for the first time. In this episode Zac and I discuss how he finally killed "Hunter Drew" and why.

JACKED w/Jack Coulson
Physical fitness shouldn't be just something that you do. It should be a part of who you are. Each of us have the same challenges in our daily lives where we struggle to find the time to get a workout in somewhere between work, family, and all of the other obligations that we face each day. The trick, according to today's guest, Jack Coulson, is to make physical fitness as much a part of your life as taking a shower in the morning. Jack has created numerous body weight workout programs as a means to become as fit as he possibly can while still being able to live a life outside of the gym, not by forcing himself to workout, but my making his workouts a part of his daily life.

The Warrior's Mindset w/ Ryan Felman
Suffering and hardship has become a choice. With the never-ending onslaught of instant gratification and automatic indulgence in the modern world, Men are now faced with the choice of whether or not they endure suffering.  Sadly, many men are choosing to opt-out from the very thing that drives them. Ryan Felman, the author of "Reclaiming Your Manhood" and his most recent book "A Warrior's MIndset: How to become a Modern Day Warrior" is a man that has been on both sides of the spectrum. Today he and I talked about just why it is that a man must suffer and endure difficulty if he is to truly unlock the inner warrior that resides within.

Cause and Effect w/ Andrew Tate
From poverty to luxury cars and private jets, Andrew Tate had it instilled in him at a young age by his father that nothing matters but results. He was expected to perform well in all things as his father sought to raise him and his brother as the modern day "warrior scholars" that would take up his mantle when he passed. It's this very notion that has driven Andrew to push himself to the top of whatever game he's playing whether it be business, professional fighting, or life itself. Today Andrew and I talked about the virtues and duties that are required of a man and what it means to live by the number one rule in life. To simply not die by becoming harder to kill.

Leveraging Your Cashflow w/ Nate Dean and Brandon Goswick
Financial literacy in America is to the point that if you were to equally distribute all of the wealth available to everyone in the country, in less than 5 years 3% of the country would hold and control 97% of the wealth because most people only know how to make money and spend money. My guests today are teaching people how to leverage their money and make it work for them. Nate and Brandon of Unlimited Life Concepts are taking the system used by banks to make money off of you and teaching it to people to use themselves. In this episode we break down a few examples of way that you never thought you could use your money.  Imagine if your money paid you to spend it.

Cultivating Solarity W/Jack Donovan
Jack Donovan; The author of "The Way of Men", "Becoming a Barbarian", and "A More Complete Beast" has become something of an icon of masculinity to Men everywhere. His work shuns away the politically correct soft handedness of the modern worlds take on what it is to be a Man and instead gives the full primal, innate nature of a Man of strength, honor and virtue it's proper due.  Man was created to combat one thing. Chaos.  The unrelenting force that encompasses all of existence. By their very nature Men have been drawn to chaos, to seek it out in an effort to create order within it. In Jack Donovan's essay, Stay Solar, describes the role of the sun withing the vast expansiveness of chaos that we all call space and how it brings order where it is needed. Expanding upon it, he has taken the virtues of the sun and applied them to his own life, encouraging Men everywhere to do the same, to be the source of order, warmth, gravity, and life while all around them the world is spinning uncontrollably off of it's axis. Today, Jack and I talked about what it truly means to "Stay Solar" as a Man in the world as it is today.

Leadership On a Nuclear Sub w/Jon Rennie
When you’re a leader, you have the watch. Through seven deployments commanding sailors in the complex and dangerous world of nuclear submarine warfare, Jon Rennie experienced a deep form of leadership. On a sub, there is no escape.

I Don't Give a F*ck if You Disagree w/Alexander J. A. Cortes
Everyone talks about being able to do whatever the hell they want. Problem is, most don't realize the cost that comes with it. The path of true freedom comes with a price tag that most aren't willing to pay. My guest today, Alexander Cortes, is an entrepreneur, personal trainer, and creator who was forced to reinvent himself on the fly after a fall from grace. Love him or hate him, he is who he is and he's perfectly fine with the collateral damage that comes with it. The man who's tweets have created immense controversy and even landed him on the news and I discuss what happens when you decide to create, live life the way you want, and the fallacy of thinking you've found the answers. Be sure to check out the workout programs that Alexander has designed for each unique person and their goals.  The only way you won't get fit is by not doing the work. https://gumroad.com/alexanderjacortes If you'd like to connect with AJAC, be sure to follow him on both Twitter and Instagram: @AJA_Cortes

Conservative Life on a Liberal Campus w/Andrew Loeschner
For many, college is the first opportunity for discovering the vast amount of differences in people, their cultures, and their views. Unfortunately, many universities have become a haven for everything diverse with the exception of diverse thought. The stereotype is that most college campus' are becoming more and more centralized in the types of views that are encouraged vs. those are are even allowed to be challenged. Andrew Loeschner is a young conservative man of faith and conviction who has entered into one of the top 25 most liberal universities in the nation. On this episode, we talked about what life in college has become, how he stays firm in his beliefs in the face of enormous external pressure, and even debunk some of the outrageous claims (made by both sides) about what happens to men like him on campus.

Giving Christianity Back it's Balls w/Adam Lane Smith
For decades there has been a noticeable decline in church attendance by Men, so much that today nearly 75% of all church goers are women. While there seem to be a myriad of possible reasons, one of the most common answers suggests that the church has lost it's balls. No longer embodying the unwavering lighthouse on the hill, guiding ships to safety, the lighthouse seems to have tried it's hand at seafaring in search of ships to guide. My guest Adam Lane Smith is a licensed psychotherapist and accomplished author who has taken the book world by storm with his "Deus Vult" series of Masculine Christian fiction novels that have removed the white gloves from today's interpretation of the Christian faith and taken readers back to the school of hard knocks.  You can find Adam on Twitter: @TheBrometheus On IG: @adamlanesmithbooks and you can find all of his work on www.adamlanesmith.com If you've enjoyed this podcast and would like to support it, you can go to anchor.fm/ruggedlegacy and click on the Support Icon.
