Most of my childhood was spent without a permanent father figure. I never learned how to work on my car. I never had the chance to roughhouse with my dad. I didn’t even learn how to throw a baseball correctly until I was a freshman in high school.

Looking back on it now, I wonder how my life would have been different if I had a permanent male influence in my life. What would the world look like if there were more men in it? I’m not talking about males. I’m talking about MEN (there isa difference).

Now that I have sons, I’m committed to being the dad that I never had. We do all kinds of great things together – sports (I coach ALL their teams), build tree houses, and roughhouse ’til we’re exhausted.

As I talk with other men, I can see that there is a huge need for learning how to be a better father. But I’ve also seen a need for strong and honorable men outside of the home.

Guys, we’re losing the meaning of manhood. We’ve gone away from being strong, rugged, independent, and tough to a collection of wimpy, dependent, whiners. Something has got to be done!

And that is why I started Order of Man. We’re going to take back what it means to be a man. We’re going to learn together from the best men the world has to offer. And we’re going to return to our roots of masculinity.

I am not an expert. I am learning. And, the only thing that qualifies me to do this work is that I have a passion for self-improvement. My goal is to take my shortcomings in life and make them my strengths.

I didn’t get to learn from great men most of my young life but I figure it’s never too late to start. Join me and let’s become better men together.
