    Harness the Power of BEING on Purpose—with Ian Lobas - EP 162

    Harness the Power of BEING on Purpose—with Ian Lobas - EP 162

    A lot of men chase money and success to provide for their family. And yet, their relationships with their partner and children suffer because they are burned out and don’t have anything left to give. They may have confidence, but no purpose or passion. So, how can we harness the power of BEING and transform into the kind of men who show up for the people we love?
    Ian Lobas is a successful entrepreneur, real estate investor, high-performance coach—and new owner of the Men on Purpose brand. He and his wife, Meredith, have spent the last seven years serving coaching clients in the realm of mindset, business and personal development, and high-performance habits. Ian spent years grinding it out in the shipping and real estate sales industries before realizing that money, power and success didn’t matter if he didn’t have purpose. From there, he set out on an intense self-development journey and made it his mission to help other men unlock their highest potential.
    On this episode, Emerald passes the mic to Ian as the new host of Men on Purpose. Ian discusses his own transformation to become a man on purpose, sharing the question his wife asked that initiated his self-development journey and explaining why it’s crucial to change not just WHAT you do, but WHO you are inside.
