Being a man is hard work. We all have so many roles and responsibilities (husband, father, business owner, community leader, and the list goes on and on). In addition to that the media, and the world are trying to tell you how you should behave and what it means to be a man by giving us a list like “27 Ways to be a Modern Man.”
My guest today, Mr. Jack Donovan, has narrowed it down to 4 tactical virtues all men should strive to improve, the difference between masculinity and morality, and why we should care.
