Building a business is something on so many men’s minds. I can’t even begin to count how many men I hear from who are unsatisfied with where they are with regards to their professional life and career path.
Today, I talk with my good friend, Jordan Harbertson, co-founder of MTNOPS, to uncover how he’s been able to build a thriving business. We cover the importance of proximity to other powerful people, how to know when you’re ready to take the entrepreneurial leap, striking the balance between giving and taking, and how every man can build a business of meaning and significance.

Men, I am honored to introduce you to my friend, Jordan Harbertson.
He and I met years ago as we both launched our businesses around the same time. I’ve been inspired watching him market his business and create something truly special for himself, his business partners, his community, and his family. I’ve watched him and his partners take MTN OPS from a simple idea to a powerhouse in the very crowded marketplace of supplemental nutrition.
Jordan is one of the most real people I know. He takes about his struggles personally and professionally including his transformation with his fitness over the past several months and what it takes to succeed in business and life.

Gents, by now you’re probably getting sick of hearing about the Order of Man Legacy but we are almost filled up. We have three spots left in what I believe will be the premier rite of passage event for fathers and sons.
There seems to a push in society against masculinity but I know the root of many of the problems we’re seeing in our young men is the result of too little positive male influence, not too much of it.
That’s why a couple months ago, I decided to create an event unlike any other that will help you, as a father, forge a stronger bond with your son and equip you with the tools needed to usher him into manhood.
We’re going to push. We going to bleed. We’re going to sweat. And, we’re going to help you teach your son what it means to be a man.
If you want to claim one of the last three spots, do it quickly. It will sell out! Head to www.orderofman.com/legacy. You and your son will both be better men for it.
