Marriage is one of the most challenging yet rewarding pursuits for a man. Unfortunately, very few of us have ever been taught how to successfully navigate the dynamics between men and women. And, all too often, it leads to headache, heartbreak, and divorce.
Today, I’m joined by marriage expert Keith Yackey to talk about these dynamics and how to successfully build a long and thriving marriage. We talk about the ROI (return of intimacy) in marriage, how a man gains his power back after giving it away, the “mommy matrix,” why seeking her validation will backfire, and the 5 dials of a powerhouse marriage.

My guest today is my good friend and personal mentor, Keith Yackey. I’ve learned so much from this man about not only running a business but how to make myself a better man as I try to improve my role as a father and husband.
Keith is an extremely successful entrepreneur, comedian, and marriage coach to hundreds of men across the world. He is using his personal experience – both successes and failures – to teach men the ins and outs, the do’s and don’t’s, and the interpersonal dynamics between husband and wife.
Again, he’s personally helped me so much and I know this conversation is going to enlighten you.

Build a Brotherhood
Keith and I talk about the importance of having male relationships, especially as a married man. I personally know how challenging it can be when you don’t have other men to lean on, bounce ideas off of, and hold your feet to the fire.
But that continues to be a challenge which is why I started the Iron Council over 7 years ago. When you band with us, you’re banding with other men who have shown that they’re interested in doing the same and are on the path to becoming the best men they can be.
