About Order of Man

Order of ManWelcome to The Order of Man.

I spent most of my childhood without a permanent male role model in my life. And, the few men that were in my life were less-than-stellar examples of what it meant to be a man.

That’s why I started Order of Man – to give men a community and resource to become better. Better at what you ask? All facets of life, from self-mastery to family, from money to contribution, and everywhere in between.

If you’re looking to learn what it takes to become more of the man you were meant to be, you’ve come to the right place.

Like many of men that I’ve talked with, you may be asking why this is so important. Do you want to make more money, have more meaningful relationships, take your career to the next level, or become a stronger leader in your business and community? Regardless of what the world may have you believe, all of that can be accomplished by magnifying and becoming more of what you already are – a man.

If you’re ready to man up, I invite you to check out our blog and podcast. You’ll learn from guys just like yourself who have taken their careers, relationships, health, and lives to the next level.

More About Me


Ryan MichlerMost of my childhood was spent without a permanent father figure. I never learned how to work on my car. I never had the chance to roughhouse with my dad. I didn’t even learn how to throw a baseball correctly until I was a freshman in high school.

Looking back on it now, I wonder how my life would have been different if I had a permanent male influence in my life. What would the world look like if there were more men in it? I’m not talking about males. I’m talking about MEN (there is a difference).

Now that I have sons, I’m committed to being the dad that I never had. We do all kinds of great things together – sports (I coach ALL their teams), build tree houses, and roughhouse ’til we’re exhausted.

As I talk with other men, I can see that there is a huge need for learning how to be a better father. But I’ve also seen a need for strong and honorable men outside of the home.

Guys, we’re losing the meaning of manhood. We’ve gone away from being strong, rugged, independent, and tough to a collection of wimpy, dependent, whiners. Something has got to be done!

And that is why I started Order of Man. We’re going to take back what it means to be a man. We’re going to learn together from the best men the world has to offer. And we’re going to return to our roots of masculinity.

I am not an expert. I am learning. And, the only thing that qualifies me to do this work is that I have a passion for self-improvement. My goal is to take my shortcomings in life and make them my strengths.

I didn’t get to learn from great men most of my young life but I figure it’s never to late to start. Join me and let’s become better men together.
