    Masculinity - Under the Surface with Special Guest Bob Conlin

    Masculinity - Under the Surface with Special Guest Bob Conlin

    Masculinity - Under the Surface with Special Guest Bob Conlin

    Where did you learn to be a man?

    What are men struggling and challenged by?

    Why do men tolerate "good enough," "fine," "decent," "ok," and "it's not that bad" lives?

    How do we get men to open up, share, express their feelings and emotions, and communicate what is really going on for them?

    How and why do men use drugs, alcohol, porn, sex, Netflix, and sports to dull and ignore what is going on?

    Why do women want more for their men's happiness, joy, and fulfillment than men often seem to want for themselves?

    These are some of the questions Bob Conlin and I dive into on this episode of The DreamMason Podcast.

    Shit I Hate Vol. 1 - (Misleading Ads, Winners & Losers, and The Yankees & RedSox)

    Shit I Hate Vol. 1 - (Misleading Ads, Winners & Losers, and The Yankees & RedSox)

    Misleading Ads, Winners & Losers, and The Yankees & RedSox

    Before you freak out, let's talk about it.

    The first thing I hate is misleading ads by online influencers! Nobody is creating their dream business in 7 days! I call b******t, and these ads by Brendon Burchard are misleading and prey on desperation. Can you start changing your life in 7 days? YES! Can you build a robust foundation or a plan in 7 days? YES! But you will not create or build your dream life or business in 7 days. If you want to build your dream business or create your dream life, that's going to require a significant shift mentally, behaviorlly, and around your actions.

    The second thing is I've been seeing a lot of entrepreneurial posts about being a winner or a loser lately...

    Guess what, you're not a winner or a loser. Sometimes we win, sometimes we lose. When we win, we often lose a lot before we get to the win. We never only win. But one thing is for sure, we don't ever become a "Winner" or a "Loser." This entrepreneurial winner and loser glamorization and projection is ego at its finest.

    And lastly, if America doesn't shift our polarizing, the other is the enemy idea and stance, we are in big trouble. We are all losing! The right is looking at the left as the enemy. The left is looking at the right as the enemy. Everyone in between is looking at both as the enemy. We have created it, so we are Yankee fans or Redsox fans and forgotten we are all baseball fans first. If there is no baseball, there are no Yankees and Redsox.

    Distractions with Alex Terranova

    Distractions with Alex Terranova

    The NBA Finals... love it and a juicy distraction!
    Media & Political Daily Drama... heartbreaking and a juicy distraction!
    A new Netflix or HBO show... yeeees, and a juicy distraction!
    A hot new Wekend song... sexy and a juicy distraction!
    Top Gun, Jurrasic Park... Hot and a juicy distraction!
    IG, Tik Toc, Facebook... ugh, and a lot of juicy distractions!

    This is a solo episode with Alex, he talks about:

    All of these things can be valuable and important as well. But for so many of us, these things often pull us away from our own goals and dreams. We spend hours watching, playing with, sharing, talking about, and investing our time into other people's visions, dreams, and goals, and not working on our own.

    Why?

    Because we are more likely to get the positive, safe, fun, enjoyable feedback we desire that also feels safe, and we don't have to be with our fears of failure or criticism in putting our stuff out there. It is scary, vulnerable, and risky to spend hours working on our book, poetry, music, art, clothing lines, opening our bar, or other business, passions, desires, or dreams and maybe not getting the feedback we need, want or worst bombing. So we find incredible ways to distract ourselves. Capitalism loves keeping us busy, distracted, and buying from fear. When we are scared, unfulfilled, or unhappy, we spend money to make ourselves feel better.

    And we can buy and spend, and have fun with all that...

    But we could also be creating, and we can still consume in a supportive way. We can consume and create and have it all. But we'd have to get present to why we are avoiding our putting our stuff on the back burner for someone else first.

    Are You & Your Business Drowning or Swimming?

    Are You & Your Business Drowning or Swimming?

    Are You & Your Business Drowning or Swimming? with Alex Terranova

    This is a solo episode with Alex, he talks about:
    You can't swim anywhere until you learn to release the fear and trust that you will not drown. That fear, that doubt, that immediate issue will prevent you from going anywhere. And that is how most teams, businesses, leaders, and business owners are running their lives and businesses, even their relationships. We are focused on the fires, the problems, the issues...the not drowning. And while this might keep us afloat for a while, it's exhausting, tiresome, and uninspiring, and eventually, we will burn out or give up, and we will be no closer to our dreams and goals. We must learn to focus on the experience we want to have and the commitment we have created and let the actions flow from there, not from the fires that arise daily.

    Through coaching, workshops, and my books, Through coaching, workshops, and my books, I have helped individuals and companies grow their incomes 500% in 90 days, save and rekindle marriages, get published, scale their companies to Six, Seven, and even Eight figures, buy their dream homes, grow their leadership, build successful teams, and create lives they actually love living.

    People choose to work with me because achievement and financial success are not creating the rewarding life and business they desire. 

    They have come to understand there is no amount of money that will fix their relationships, make them feel like enough, 
     
    That no external validation will fill that void inside them that says they are not enough. 
     
    That no amount of hard work, achievement, fame, or distraction will provide the peace, ease, joy, and connection, they want. 
     
    And that the legacy deeply they crave to leave will be measured by these metrics, not their bank statements.

LOVE

I had the pleasure of being on Alex's podcast .. a true gem + extremely authentic man. THANK YOU for the work you are putting into the world, Alex. Well worth the listen! So good.

Lance Schuttler ,

A good man

I had the privilege of being on Alex’s podcast and want to echo what many others are saying in that Alex’s podcast is well worth your time in many regards.

Alex’s ability to draw out valuable and helpful information from his guests is a skill that very few have and is something I admire about him and his podcast.

Eliciting these deep responses from his guests is part of why we listen to people in the first place: we want to hear interesting, valuable and helpful information that moves us further along on our own path.

Alex is a good man and his heart is absolutely in the place of wanting to help others.

Keep dreaming big everyone and thanks for what you do Alex!
