Masculinity is on the decline. I say that not just anecdotally but also statistically. If you look at testosterone levels, degrees of strength, and our increasing inability to delay gratification for the betterment of ourselves and others, it’s painfully obvious that men, generally, aren’t what we once were. There are a myriad of reasons for this and my guest today, Nicky Billou, and I talk about what those reasons are – from the changes we see in society (positive and negative), the increasing lack of fatherless homes, taking fault vs. assuming responsibility, the 3rd entity of the relationship with our wife, the undermining of the family unit and the man as the head of his household, and so much more.

  • Taking responsibility
  • Leading effectively

  • Leading each other
  • Replacing the father
  • Celebrating masculinity
  • Freedom-loving men


My guest today is Nicky Billou. He and I have been friends for years and I’ve always been inspired by his ability to speak exactly what is on his mind and cut through all the clutter and BS that permeates much of our culture today.

You’re going to hear exactly why I think so highly of Nicky in this podcast today and walk away with a ton of insight and clarity that you may not have had going into this conversation…
