Episode: #54 Michael 'Silent Mike' on how to live life on your own terms

Who: Today's guest is internet superstar Michael 'Silent Mikke' Farr, who describes himself as a Male internet Entertainer Coach, lifter, and content creator.

He recently left a massive brand and went his own way, forging his own career, businesses and creating the life he wanted to live. I was keen to get Mike onto the podcast as not only was I a massive fan but I also knew he would have some awesome gems on how you can do this too, and go for your dreams. He has gone from strength to strength as he is building up his platform and his message and I know he is the perfect person to discuss this. In this interview, we discuss taking the first step away, overcoming fear, building your own name up, diversifying to find out what suits you best and so much more. This is different from most interviews with Mike, we move away from lifting and cover an area few discuss but would change so many men's lives, and that is building a life on your own terms.

What we cover

  • Who he is
  • About his upbringing and his love for basketball
  • How he transitioned into powerlifting and how he made a brand for himself from weights
  • His philosophy on content creation and what makes successful content
  • Who he looks to as a role model 
  • What does he consider makes a good man
  • What inspires him to get out of bed every morning
  • Why he felt the time was right to make the move and build his own brand
  • How has he found the transition from being part of a successful team to going on his own
  • How to stay relevant in a crowded niche and with so much competition
  • What his goals are for the future
  • Who his dream interview guests would be?
  • Ways to connect with media influencers and connect builders
  • His podcast and its guests 
  • Building strong friendships and networking tips
  • How to work a business with friends
  • What advice for those who want to go and out and do their own ventures
  • What does he want everyone listening to the interview to take away as the go home message?
  • And so much more

 

Some things to reflect on

  • It is very obvious during the interview at how focused Mike is ... he picks his goals and commits to them, letting little get in his way. What could you achieve if you stopped wasting time and committed to chasing your dreams?
  • Mike's father played a very important role in his life, he demonstrated how to be a good man and give back to others - what are you doing to help others? 
  • Mike didn't let lack of resources like a coach or money hold him back. He sourced and scrapped for the things he needed to improve. There is free content everywhere, library books you can rent and other deals you can make to help someone for some assistance etc. There is no excuse for you not working to get the things you need to get to get better. It might not be easy but it is life's way of making sure you deserve the return. If it was easy, it wouldn't be fun!
  • Every man should have at least one goal in their life to better the lives of others
  • You can make any life you want, you can build the life you want
  • There is always fear. It will never go away. You just need to suck it up, identify a fallback position and the worst case scenario and go for it. Life is too short to not go for your dreams.
  • Always be you but don't be afraid to change the environment and type of message or product you are putting out to evolve and move with the times and be open to trying new things
  • You find out who you are by putting in the work
  • You need to be open, vulnerable and genuine to build good, strong friendships. Genuine people attract other genuine places. Be open, supportive and genuine with people you click with and put in the effort to build the relationship with them and it will help build lifelong relationships. 
  • There's dumb and smart risk - weigh up what you are going to do and plan it, and go for it. Always be open to growth and change. There is always a way to get back to where you are or make money again.

Episode: #53 Nick 'Chewy' Albin on why you need to try BJJ right now

Who: Today's guest is BJJ coaching guru Nick 'Chewy' Albin. Nick is a BJJ which stands for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) competitor, coach and owner of Chewjitsu which is a Youtube training channel, and its associated BJJ training facility in Louisville, Kentucky. This guy has been an amazing help to me in my own BJJ journey and he is a must follow for beginners and experts alike, an awesome coach and a great guy! We discuss a lot of different concepts in this one and it really outlines the joys of BJJ and why I think every person needs to try it. In this interview, we discuss his story, BJJ, how life-changing training can be, role models, training methods, his outlook on life and so much more. Nick is throwing gem after gem in this one! I practically gave up trying to record them all down as there was so many ... so listen and enjoy!

**Please note that this was recorded back in July 2018 and due to some other time-sensitive recordings, the release for this interview was moved back. Some aspects have changed, I am now a 4 tab white belt and feel much more centred, controlled, considerably more developed and skilled practitioner and its thanks to guys like Nick for this evolution of me as a BJJ competitor and person. And apologies, back then I sat too far away from my mic so the sound is a bit crap in places but I didn't want to tinker too much with the sound and lose the authenticness of the interview**

What we cover

  • Who he is and his entrepreneurial journey as a child
  • The terrible incident that encouraged Nick to train BJJ and begin his Jiu-Jitsu journey
  • Is BJJ right for everyone?
  • How to be a good student at your BJJ gym and how you can learn BJJ the quickest?
  • How do you leave your ego at the door and enter training with an empty learning cup?
  • How BJJ will change you as a person and become a good training partner
  • How should we look at being beaten? How should we look at loss and overcome the negative association we tend to add to it and actually learn from it?
  • How Nick coaches and his truly superb way of viewing learning BJJ and using it as well 
  • How progression is judged and what you need to do to show to be ready for another tab or belt
  • The amazing benefits of an open mat session and a training debrief 
  • The importance and benefits of going for a short walk after a meal. 
  • The evolution of techniques and moves in Jiu-Jitsu
  • How to pick the right gym for you to train BJJ at
  • Where his creativity and passion for training BJJ comes from
  • How he finds transitioning from a BJJ Competitor to Coach to gym owner
  • Methods for recovering, avoiding injury, starting training as an older person etc and how Nick relaxes away from it all
  • Do mental workouts like visualisation work?
  • How Nick chooses his content and connects with his audience
  • What should you expect from your first class and starting BJJ
  • The evolution of his business 
  • How should someone starting outlook to progress within their first six months of BJJ training
  • How does he deal with the fast break questions
  • What he wants you to take from the interview
  • How you can keep in touch with him and his projects
  • And so much more

 

Some things to reflect on

  • BJJ is a human chess match, you can never fully learn BJJ but you can make it your own, evolve positions submissions and movement chains to make your own version of BJJ
  • To be a great student, you need to find your own intrinsic reason about why you want to learn, it needs to be something you want to do, to learn as it is a long challenging road but it will be a life-changing road
  • BJJ techniques are changing and evolving all the time, there are no real wrong positions, more your reaction from being in it dictates how successful you can
  • If you can control three out of four points to pass a guard - hips, knees and legs, it will create a really nasty and skilled guard pass
  • Learn to relax and that mindset will open up your creative mind and it will allow creating, to tinker and modify to make BJJ in your own style
  • Martial arts allows you to take back your power, your true identity after being bullied, a bad family environment etc, martial arts allows you to become centred and controlled again
  • Who we are is very malleable, we can change, we can develop, we can become better, no matter our current starting point
  • The story you tell yourself will control how successful you will be and how quickly you can 'learn' BJJ - what is the story you tell about yourself? Is it a positive or negative? 
  • Everyone is going to be different in terms of skill progression, your journey is yours alone, don't judge yourself against another, don't compare yourself against others, follow your own path and help others but each of us goes on our own journey
  • You need to step away from the mats to recover, learn and evolve as well as time training - you need a healthy mixture of training, recover and other hobbies
  • Good or bad, the experiences you have gone through have made you the person you are today and you can learn from them and become a better person from it
  • Instead of trying to find solutions to the reasons you don't or can't do something, find the one reason - all it takes is one - to actually want to do it and focus on that

What we cover

  • Who he is 
  • How did his upbringing help shape his love of entrepreneurship 
  • The importance of a father figure in the evolution of a man
  • What sort of ideas work for a new business
  • Is education important to a new entrepreneur - do you need the training to become a business mogul? 
  • What are the benefits of a structured education?
  • The key skills that today's young people should be looking to become skilled in to get ahead of the pack
  • What similarities he has noticed in the amazing people he has worked with over the years
  • When is the point to move on, to develop or evolve a current product or move to another platform/method?
  • What made him the appealing employee for some truly great entrepreneurs? What characteristics of him help him win such great positions?
  • When is the right time to leave a position and move onto another venture?
  • What the most successful people trust most
  • Best strategies to utilise when you are trying to network and build connections.
  • His interest in self-experimentation and how it has shaped his outlook on life.
  • What are his typical daily routines and does he ever have a 'typical day' like someone else who works a '9-5' jobs?
  • Meditation - is it worth it? In a world run by technology, how does shutting down and powering off your mind like a computer help?
  • The importance of the work/life balance and how hobbies can shape you as a person and as an entrepreneur.  
  • If he had his time again, would he change anything?

  • What does he want the listener to take away from this interview
  • An unusual fact about himself that few others know.
  • How can you keep in touch with David and follow his adventures and upcoming projects?
  • And so much more

 

 

 

Some things to reflect on

  • Sometimes it is best to become a manager in a start-up before trying your own start-up, you learn the basics and the key skills that you will need to make your version a success
  • There are so many paths to entrepreneurship - you don't need to do the 'modern' or 'typical' route that you hear big-name founders following. Not everyone can or should be another Facebook but there is a potential audience open to everyone no matter the type of idea. 
  • We always have an opportunity, no matter your starting point, you choose how you react, how you take. Don't let the man in the mirror talk you out of trying, you have no idea where you might go. 
  • Creativity in games, sports etc can make you more creative across the board.
  • Education can be important but the experience is vital. To be a good founder, you need to be experienced in every aspect or find someone else who can be. Everyone has a uniques path and skill set that can be utilised to make a fantastic team.
  • You need to really believe in what you are doing to succeed, you need to believe in your mission. However, it is probably a bad approach to try and do it all on your own. You need a strong support team and network to do this, rather than being on your own. You need to support each other as you will fail but a strong support team will help you get back on track and help you out of the problems and out of the development plateaus.
  • Working on your business is important ... but you need to step away from it at times, to relax and recover and build a strong work/life balance. Too much time spent will end up exhausting you and that causes burnout and most will struggle and fail. You need to work but play too. You need to plan breaks and work smart not hard.
  • Everyone is trying to figure this journey and business journey out. No one has it down perfect.

What we cover

  • Who he is and why you should check him out
  • Where the idea and structure for the channel came from - how we have video games to be thankful for his channel
  • How he got into martial arts and how has the UFC and rise of martial arts affected the types of customers he attracts to his club
  • How would he define grappling to those who are new to the sport and how is grappling different to the UFC and street fights
  • Should all men do a physical sport like grappling?
  • How do men go wrong when they train grappling and combat sports 
  • How can you learn grappling the quickest and training hacks
  • What should a good instructor teach you in terms of quality of teaching and method of teaching
  • What should a person starting out focus on? Basics or advanced? 
  • Why does he think his coaching style is so successful compared to other coaches?
  • What does he look for in a student to know they are ready to be promoted with a new tab/belt?
  • What personality and mentality do his ideal students have?
  • How did he find the transition from competitor to coach? What about the students who try to be 'assistant coaches' but aren't official?
  • How does he see his channel evolving in the future?
  • The characteristics that good grapplers have
  • What does he want people to take away from the interview?
  • What does he consider an unusual fact about himself?
  • How can you keep in touch with him?
  • And so much more

 

 

 

Some things to reflect on

  • Consistency is key in the formation of successful habits
  • Grappling is fighting without striking someone - movies and TV shows have greatly misconstrued how a real fight works 
  • Lack of discipline can lead to fights - if every man trained, we wouldn't have as many fights as we currently do
  • Learning to relax is the key to success when learning to grapple
  • The majority of men are not knowledgeable about BJJ and self-defense, those who are will have the advantage. Sadly, not all coaches have the same level of leadership and training, you need to seek out those who can truly teach the essence of grappling, BJJ etc.
  • The basics are great in learning a martial art but no advancement of techniques will prevent you evolving and progressing. Both basic and advanced are key to becoming great. 
  • Performance and being an individual are more important than knowledge in a student - it is about making grappling and BJJ a version of your style
  • Less talking, more learning is the best approach as a new student
  • Confidence in your ability is almost and some say more important than technique 
  • Age and history does not make something right, newer developments can be better than the 'proper way' of doing a technique

Episode: #49 RSD Maxx answers your questions

Who: Today's guest is extraordinary dating coach RSD Maxx. Max is a dating coach with RSD Nation and has just launched the most successful dating product ever, called 'The Natural', which has broken all records. He teaches guys how to become a natural with women by developing and unleashing their true potential. He is described by RSD Nation as having ‘an amazing repertoire of stories … and has a gift for teaching self-development and lifestyle enhancement as well. His teachings focus on state of the art strategies and knowledge on how to pick up women and become the man you have always wanted to be.’

This interview is slightly different as it is not really an interview. I collated together a bunch of questions I received from readers and we covered these during our chat with Maxx offering hints and tips to fix the issues, in a 'Ask the Expert' feature. If you enjoyed this and would like to see more of these types of chat, let me know by using the contact form on the site or sending me a message on social media. I think Maxx is fantastic here giving some life-changing advice for men listening.

Some things to reflect on

To book a free consultation call with RSD Maxx, please click here.

There is nothing really stopping you from becoming better with women … just the stories that you tell yourself about why you can’t do it, the self-imposed barriers you put in front of yourself. Anyone, at any stage, can become better and become a natural by polishing their true self and building attraction by being themselves, you just need to learn how to do so. Start small if needed but start now, take action rather than take regrets.

Episode: #48 The Mind Pump guys on how to build great partnerships that can change the world

Who: Today's guests are the Mind Pump Media team. This interview is fun, informative and full of double entendres! The guys are the cutting edge of the fitness industry and really helping people transform themselves by cutting through the BS and fakeness of the fitness industry and actually providing helpful advice that can work for you to help you achieve your goals.

As the guys describe themselves: "MindPump is an online radio show/podcast that has been described as Howard Stern meets fitness. It is sometimes raw, sometimes shocking and is always entertaining and informative. Your hosts, Sal Di Stefano, Adam Schafer and Justin Andrews have over 40 years of combined fitness experience as personal trainers, club managers, IFBB fitness competitors and fitness thought leaders.

The fitness world is filled with charlatans and snake oil salesmen pushing the latest and greatest (and sometimes downright dangerous) workout programs, supplements and faux science on the unsuspecting masses. Sal, Adam and Justin use MindPump as a platform to shed the light of TRUTH on health, fitness and a host of other topics."

In this interview, we discuss what makes Mind Pump so unique and successful and focus on how to build great partnerships and friendships that can help you change the world. 

And yes, before anyone asks, the intro was recorded when I only had my temp use mic and the quality is shocking!

Some things to reflect on

  • Mind Pump is working to cut out the myths and bullshit that exist in the fitness industry today to give useful, actionable and enjoyable fitness help. Mind Pump doesn't preach, they share the modalities, the pros, and negatives of everything and what works for you and provide 'radical honesty' to disrupt the bs the industry has been building.
  • To become fit - "A lot of things work but nothing works for everybody and the things that do work, won't work for you all the time", how is your approach working truthfully? Do you need to adapt it or change your approach to suit?
  • Helping clients is about problem-solving through the bs and mass of misinformation and helping them find the methods that work for them. There are no cookie cutter approaches to success that work for everyone. 
  • When working with a client, it is more about how you communicate things to the client then what you are communicating to them
  • Undissolved egos can cause a massive problem when trying to form and develop a team - can you let others lead? Do you need to be the 'main guy' in the team? Are you really trying to benefit the team or do you have a 'scarcity mindset' and just looking out for yourself?
  • "Partnerships are like marriage"
  • Own what you are not good at, accept it and utilise what you can provide and assist the team with. The best teams work because each person provides assistance to the team with something that is otherwise lacking. Not everyone can be the best at everything. Find out what you are good at and provide that to the team and the partnerships.
  • "Your true net worth is your network" is a statement that I really agree with. As they say, you are the average of the five people you hang around with most. Is your network something you are proud of? If not, what are you going to do about it?
  • Don't be afraid to try or go somewhere new or a topic you haven't covered or considered. Challenge yourself. Try it and see how things go, try and evolve. 
  • Some great viewpoints for what will help you become the best version of yourself the fastest: "Be comfortable with being uncomfortable", "Make friends with what you don't know", "Be Ok with being wrong". 
  • "Stop focusing on the things you are not good at, focus on what you are good at and be fucking great". You can't be great at everything, stop beating yourself up about things you aren't good at and instead use this philosophy to become great by "know your strengths, know what you are good at and be great at it". 
  • "Seek out the opposite viewpoint" to succeed and listen to them with an open mind and either come out with a stronger opinion or change your mind. Either way you will win as you will either strengthen your understanding or be wrong and learn from it.
  • The only person you should compare yourself to is how you were yesterday. Always be looking to better youself today compared to yesterday.

Who: Today's guest is Sunjeev Prasad, the founder of Street Gentleman, who helps ambitious men feel more confident, by teaching them how to dress well and know what is stylish. As he states 'The goal is to ultimately make men feel confident and empowered. Men's style happens to be the vehicle for achieving this. When you look great, you feel great, and when you feel great that translates into performing great -- both in the workplace and in your personal life.'

In this interview, we discuss fashion, style and how to use both to tap into your true potential in all aspects of your life.

What we cover

  • Who he is and why he is well known
  • His upbringing and the role it played in his sense of self, style, fashion, and identity
  • Who he used as role models when he was younger
  • If style is individual, why should men care what others think of their style
  • His definition of a good role model, someone who is masculine and a good man
  • How he helps other men using his mastermind group 
  • Where he thinks modern men are going wrong with their style
  • The role that men see fashion playing in their lives
  • Do wardrobe staples exist? Can these staple pieces for all men actually exist if it is all unique and individual?
  • Flipping the switch, what are the 'no nos' of fashion and style?
  • How would he start working with a new client and helping them match their goals through their style
  • What memory aides we need to use when trying on clothes to make sure they fit right
  • What should we do with our current clothes when we are looking to build up a new style
  • Any hacks we can use to make the maintenance and preparation of outfits easier for our schedules
  • How can we make sure that the clothing items we select are authentic to us rather than a copy of others or a way to fit into the group dynamic
  • How do we work on using our fashion and style to develop as a person and not become too self-obsessed in the clothing only
  • How should we deal with those people who 'hate' on our new style and movement out of our comfort zones?
  • How should accessories be used to build our own individual style?
  • How does he deal with the fast break questions
  • And so much more

 

 

 

Some things to reflect on

  • Fashion can help build our identity - what is your fashion and style saying about you, your image, and identity?
  • Your style is not just what you wear, it how you hold yourself, how you walk, how you act
  • Masculine men take risks and put themselves out there to succeed in their goals
  • Working with other men in a mastermind group can help you delve deep into the masculinity of the members and remove the masks they have been hiding behind to become their true selves
  • It is never too late, regardless of your current situation, romantic overview, history, age, race etc to start improving your style and becoming the man you want to be
  • "We live in a culture that operates on snap judgments" - people make assumptions on how you look and attribute your abilities and their beliefs of you on how you look. Your style can open doors for you that were maybe not going to be open currently
  • Consider your fit, complexion, length, and shape when picking clothing that suits you
  • Clothes should be "comfortably snug", it fits your body but doesn't restrict movement
  • You should plan out outfits and batch process the prep work on your outfits, ideally a day before
  • Be open and honest with what you wear, make mistakes, ask for feedback and learn from what works, you don't need to be perfect straight away, but you do need to start to get where you want to go!
  • Pick your friends well and leave those who want to destroy you behind - you are the average of the five people you hang around with
