You guys have heard me talk a lot about our role as protectors, providers, and presiders not only within the walls of our home but in our communities as well. Not only do we have the opportunity to give back to those in need, we have a moral obligation to do so, especially if we have the means to do it.
My guest today is a man who is doing exactly that. His name is Victor Fontanez (you may know him as Vic Blends) and he has made a name for himself through offering practical life advice for the young men he gives haircuts to as he serves his community in Atlanta. Vic is 22 years old but you’re going to hear so much incredible wisdom come from him. I was honestly taken back by how much this man inspired me to do and be better myself.

My guest today is Victor Fontanez (VicBlends). He’s a 22-year-old entrepreneur from a small town in North Carolina who has gained national attention for his approach to the reaching the young men in Atlanta.
A lot of you may have seen him on social media with a presence of over 10,000,000 on IG and TikTok. He started cutting hair in his mom’s garage but is quickly becoming one of the most renowned celebrity barbers and business moguls in the county.
But, more importantly than all of that, Vic has an incredible heart to serve men and has been working to establish the very first barber school in the California State Penitentiary to give these men a chance to contribute to society and live a meaningful life. Enjoy.

Gents, it may not come as a surprise to you, but I believe that society at large is dead-set on undermining, ridiculing, and dismissing masculinity at every turn. And, as you know, I’ve been hell-bent on correcting that problem.
So much so that I decided to enlist the help of some incredible men – Bedros Keuilian, John Lovell, Tanner Guzy, Jack Donovan, Stephen Mansfield and Matt Beaudreau to name a few – in the mission to reclaim and restore masculinity.
So, all of us (and more) are going to be hosting our first-ever ManUncaged event on May 7th, 2022. I know it’s short notice but if you can make it, I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
We only have limited seats so please get registered ASAP at ManUncaged.com
