    TREVOR FARNES | How to Conquer Challenges, Setbacks, and Life

    TREVOR FARNES | How to Conquer Challenges, Setbacks, and Life

    With all the world has to throw at you and me, it would be easy to allow life to get the better of us. Hell, in many circles, it’s expected and tolerated, if not encouraged. That isn’t how any of us here in Order of Man choose to live our lives. Instead, we choose to step up to the challenges we face and conquer them in spite of tremendous odds.
    My guest, good friend and founder of MTNOPS, Trevor Farnes, is a man who knows how to do exactly that. Today, we talk about his very humble beginnings, how he built MTNOPS into a globally recognized supplement company when his goal at the time was to serve his ailing father, why he doesn’t believe in compartmentalizing his life, how to have abundance even in scarcity, and why the most powerful place to serve is to the person you once were.

    Security is the Skeleton Key to Her Heart, Mind, and Body | FRIDAY FIELD NOTES

    Reflecting on Ryan's journey from emotional turbulence to stability, this episode unpacks how making a woman feel safe and secure can transform a relationship. Ryan recounts his own battles with emotional volatility, particularly exacerbated by alcohol misuse, and the pivotal role of becoming a consistent, reliable partner. By grounding the relationship in emotional stability, the potential for deeper connections, shared joy, and adventurous experiences is unlocked.
    The episode also touches on the interplay between emotional and financial stability, showing how these two elements are essential for a secure relationship. Emotional steadiness allows for open, honest communication, while financial security reduces stress and opens doors for future planning.

    Finally, the episode explores actionable steps to build strength in a relationship from both a financial and personal standpoint. Using methods like Dave Ramsey's debt snowball, investing in personal development, and ensuring physical and emotional protection are key. Ryan discusses the importance of fitness, situational awareness, and even self-defense training to become your partner's rock. Join him as he maps out a path to becoming the partner you aspire to be, offering insights and strategies that are both practical and transformative.

    CLINT EMERSON | Trump’s Assassination Attempt and Preparing for the Worst

    With the recent assassination attempt of former President, Donald Trump, it’s easy to see how political tensions continue to racket up. And, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that we, as men, must be prepared to protect ourselves and others at a moment’s notice.
    My guest today, former Navy SEAL, Clint Emerson, has made a career of developing personal readiness in himself and others. Today, we talk about the missteps and conspiracy theories around Trump’s recent assassination attempt, how DEI initiatives endanger us all, when discrimination can be useful, why time equals opportunity and why opportunity equals survivability in these situations, the “run, hide, fight,” mentality, and how the Chinese could potentially start an American civil war without getting their hands dirty.

Crown Yourself ,

Phenomenal!

As a woman raising two little men with my man, I love seeing men supporting other men and being truly vulnerable, honest, and courageous with the valleys and the peaks of fatherhood and challenges with being a man in this crazy world. This is a must listen, and a must subscribe for men looking to grow together and lift each other up.
