Back by popular demand, my favorite guest joins me again on the podcast. And, in case you don’t know who that is, it’s my wife. Look, the reality is that all the guests that I have had on have offered some tremendous insight and value but my thought is that if you can’t get things right with your wife, nothing else really matters that much.
Today, we talk about the struggles we’ve had in our marriage, why she wants me to lead our family, what women look for in men, the “patriarchy,” kissing through the beard, getting your wife on board with your self-development journey, and a whole lot more.

As I mentioned before, my guest today is my wife, Tricia Michler. We’ve been together for 17 years now and married for 15. We’ve had our ups and downs and have gone through a lot together and, after our previous episodes together (and the positive response), I figured it was time to bring her back on again.
She’s my beautiful wife, mother to our four children, a stay-at-home mom/homemaker, and someone who adds a lot of love, laughter, and spontaneity to my life. Frankly, I’m not sure how I would do life without her in it.

Gents, we’ve talked a little about children in this episode and I hope you can see how important ours are to us. If you have children, I know you feel the same way about yours.
But more and more, it seems the world is stacked against our children – specifically our young men. And, a couple of years ago, I wanted to throw my hat in the ring and do something about that.
That is why we created the Legacy Experience – a father/son event being held June 11-14, 2020. The experience is designed to push you and your son physically, mentally, and emotionally and help forge and foster the bond between you and him. Essentially, we created this experience to help you as his father usher him into manhood.
