Today, we talk about something we’ve never directly addressed on this podcast, God. Now, before you tune me out based on that word alone, I believe that regardless of what you believe, there is something to be learned in every conversation and every experience.
That’s why, when my friend, Dale Partridge reached out to talk about his new book, Saved From Success, I knew I needed to have him on. At the risk of losing a few listeners and receiving a few disapproving emails, I thought this was a conversation worth having. We talk about Dale’s definition of success compared to much of society’s, why men are hesitant to surrender to a higher power, how to develop a life of significance and meaning, and how all of us can be saved from success.

Today, I have the honor of introducing you to my friend and repeat guest, Dale Partridge. I had him on the show in June of last year to talk about turning your passion into your profession.
About a month or so ago, he reached out to me regarding his new book and I thought it would make for an interesting conversation.
For those of you who may not know, Dale is an extremely successful entrepreneur and the founder of Startup Camp, which teaches aspiring entrepreneurs the ropes when it comes to building businesses.
I’ve been following him and his message for a long time and we’ve managed to build a friendship through our mutual work in calling men to step up to be men in their homes, their communities, their business, and every other facet of their lives.

Saved From Success
Exclusive Brotherhood, The Iron Council
If you haven’t’ heard of the Iron Council by now, you might just be missing out on just one critical component to becoming more successful in every area of your life – a band of brothers.
I think it would be hard to find a man who didn’t believe that having a core group of motivated, ambitious men around him would help him level up his life. That said, I think it would be extremely easy to find a man who hasn’t done it.
The fact of the matter is, it’s hard, it takes time, and a lot of energy to find other men who have the same desire to grow as you do. And, that’s where the Iron Council comes in. This is a brotherhood, a group of men, committed to doing a lot more than talk about what they want, they’re actively working towards it in four main areas of their lives: Calibration, Connection, Condition, and Contribution.
When you band with us, we’ll give you access to the tools, the resources, and the framework to make more money, connect deeply with the people you care about, learn who you are and how you best show up, and every other goal and ambition you may have.
