Men need role models as well, these types of spaces podcasts, events, communities and groups are absolutely essential to a man’s growth and development.
- In the last few decades, the power and responsibility of social change have shifted. In our modern era businesses are the ones who are dictating how our societies are changing and shifting, how they look, businesses are shifting the way we live our lives at a fundamental level. It makes sense that people are looking to entrepreneurs as agents of change. People want to have a direct impact on the people they care about the most. Entrepreneurs are looking at some of society's biggest problems and finding ways to fix them, even the simple everyday problems.

The areas to inspect are business and career, family, personal health, finances, mindset, getting an honest assessment of the positives and the negatives.
