Formerly “Man Amongst Men” Podcast, Dominick and Bryan are your guides for a High-Achieving Man’s Journey to Personal Development.

They confront the topics most men never speak about openly but secretly struggle with:

- Your Purpose: Achieving external success, yet feeling internally unfulfilled
- Your Edge: Always doing many things yet never feeling fully alive
- Your Sex Life: Stuck in a cycle of lackluster, destructive and/or secretive sexual behaviors

The Great Man designs his life with intentionality, plays bigger games and leads those around him to higher ground.

If Tim Ferris, Napoleon Hill and David Deida made a podcast, this would be it.

    A Man’s Guide to the Menstrual Cycle (feat. Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer)

    A Man’s Guide to the Menstrual Cycle (feat. Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer)

    When it comes to the menstrual cycle, many men have been taught:
    It’s “her thing to deal with” It’s an inconvenience/barrier to having sex It’s gross PMS = a trip to crazytown For the men who want to continue to believe this narrative, you can stop reading right here.
    This episode is for the man who identifies himself as one who:
    Celebrates the menstrual cycle as one of the core experiences of being a woman Wants to better understand the “4 seasons of the cycle” so he can build intimacy with his partner Wants to know what she needs from him during those 4 seasons How to express his needs during the different seasons Our Guides for this Discussion Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer founded The Red School, which is a new approach to women’s leadership, creativity and spiritual life based on a uniquely feminine way – the menstrual cycle.
    They’ve written the book Wild Power: discover the magic of your menstrual cycle and awaken the feminine path to power. (published by Hay House)

    In this Episode: A breakdown of the 4 seasons of the 28-day menstrual cycle What your feminine partner may be feeling during those stages What she may need from you during those stages And when and how to ask for what you want “During the first 6-7 days of my cycle, I want my man to fight for me to have the space I need to go inward.” – Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer
    “It’s dangerous to be needy around a woman who is in her autumn (PMS) phase.” – Alexandra Pope

    Your Ultimate Guide to Books: Choosing, Reading & Retaining (feat Juvoni Beckford)

    Your Ultimate Guide to Books: Choosing, Reading & Retaining (feat Juvoni Beckford)

    Have you ever felt frustrated by investing 8-10 hours in reading a book, only to feel its lessons slipping away as each day goes by?
    Unless you’re Rain Man, I’m pretty sure you can relate.
    Have you ever felt overwhelmed by the sheer amount of books that you “need to read?”
    I personally have a queue of over 30 books that I’ve already purchased and awaiting my attention.
    I am not joking.
    Today’s episode is all about simplifying your unique process for selecting books which books you invest your time in reading…and a few practical techniques to ensure you retain more of the information you absorb.
    Here to help us do that is Juvoni Beckford.
    Juvoni is a software engineer at Google, and a disciple of the systems and habit based approach to living an optimal lifestyle.
    I spent 3 hours in a van with Juvoni on our way to a men’s retreat a few months back…
    …and when he started talking about his elaborate, and ingenious, process for selecting, reading and retaining 60 books a year…I knew I needed to bring him to you guys.

    In this Episode: Why you need an intentional process for determining which books you say yes to (a 6-10 hour investment of your time)
    Why you need what Juvoni calls a “book purgatory” – where potential books go to “meet their judgment day.”
    Why 1 and 5 star reviews are just noise…and the well-written 3-star reviews hold the biggest clues as to whether you should read the book
    Why you should know who the author’s “masters and students” are before reading the book
    How you should look at book authors as access to mentors
    Why these two factors are critical to your ability to retain information:
    1) Medium: Hard copy, Kindle or Audiobook
    2) Context: On the train, in bed, listening at the gym etc

    Books for Your 2020 Reading List

    Books for Your 2020 Reading List

    The #1 Author I Read this Year…drumroll please… Napoleon Hill.
    Surprise Surprise.
    I re-read 2 of his books, Outwitting the Devil and Think and Grow Rich.
    And I listened to another for the first time on audiobook, How to Use Your Own Mind.
    But the book I’m going to recommend is: Napoleon Hill in His Own Voice.
    I was turned onto this one by friend Cara…and it quickly became an obsession.
    This is a 10 hour series of audio recordings from his live workshops when Hill was still alive.
    There was a two month period where I would put my Bose Noise Cancelling headphones on and listen to these recordings for 15-20 minutes first thing every morning…and last thing every night.
    No joke, I listened to these recordings 3 times through over that period…and rewired my brain.
    Listen to this Book if: You want to reconfigure your DNA around what you believe is possible.
    …You can listen on Spotify for Free.
     

    The Most Impactful Book I Read this Year: White Fragility, Why it’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism by Robin D’Angelo.
    This book is perspective rattling and unapologetically confronting in the best of ways.
    Read this Book: If you want a wake-up call.
    The big idea of this book, is that the idea of racism is so uncomfortable for white people – as it’s viewed as the ultimate character assassination – that we refuse to look at how we are benefitting from and ensuring the survival of the various systems, behaviors and covert language that perpetuate racism.
    The impact on me, was that I was inspired to take a good hard look at where I’d been dismissive, defensive and ignorant in my own life. It led me to pursuing and devouring some really powerful African American authors like Maya Angelou, Toni Morrison, Ta-Nehisi Coates and Colson Whitehead.
     
     
    The #1 Genre I read this Year: Men’s Work. I read 6 books this year in the category of men’s work, and I’ll link all of them in the shownotes…but there’s two I want to recommend:
    #1 is Modern Manhood by Cleo Stiller. If you listen to this show, you know Bryan and I are big fans of Cleo and this important book, and you can go back and listen to our two part interview episode with her titled…Modern Manhood.
    Read this book if: You need help grappling with the complicated world of striving to be a good man in today’s era.

    #2 is King Warrior Magician Lover by Robert Moore.
    This is widely considered to be one of the most important contemporary books on masculinity.
    Read this Book if: You want to create your own definition of what it means to be a powerful, loving and trustworthy man.
    This book has heavily influenced our work here on this show. You’ve heard Bryan and I talk about how The Great Man Within creates environments where he and others can thrive.
    Well, that comes directly from the King Archetype.

    Favorite Fiction: The Border by Don Winslow
    This is the 3rd installment in a trilogy that Winslow writes about the brutal Drug War – that we are losing spectacularly – with Mexico.
    Read this book if you want a novel that you absolutely cannot out down.
    The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead.
    This is a Pulitzer Prize winning novel about a runaway slave who
    Read this Book if you want a beautifully written and heartbreakingly educational perspective on the America some of us work so hard not to talk about.
    Favorite Non-Fiction: Mindhunter by John Douglas
    This is the story of how the FBI created a state of the art personality profiling system to help catch the most notorious serial killers of our time. You’ll hear all about Charles Manson, Ted Bundy, the Unabomber.
    Read this book if you want a terrifying lens into the minds of the most brutal serial killers of all time, and how the events of their early lives caused them to careen into a tragic life of destruction.
    They’ve fictionalized this book and

    In this Episode How to Get Mentorship from the Best of the Best:
    Nic’s process for how he’s secured mentorship from and connection with the best like Roger Gracie, Tim Ferriss and Aubrey Marcus.
    Curating the Power of Intentional Inputs:
    How most men are not aware of how many negative inputs – especially before bed – that are unconsciously creating a profound impact on mood, motivation and worldview.
    Shining a Light on Your Early Sexual Experiences:
    How his sexual abuse at an early age caused a private sense of shame for many years and drove many of his sexual impulses…before employing a unique process that helped him heal that trauma.

    How most men’s biggest fear is not living up to their potential…and he is emphatic that your purpose is not something you find…it must be something you create for yourself.
