Are You (Consciously) Choosing How To Be A Man? w/ Johnny Elsasser (079)

October 19, 2022

MTW GUEST Banner Johnny Elsasser e79

Have you ever questioned where your definition of manhood came from?

Have you ever taken time to define for yourself what it means to be a man?

In this episode, my guest, Johnny Elsasser, and I mine these questions and more for useful insights to make a meaningful difference in your life.

I like Johnny. I met him in person about a year ago at a mutual friend’s birthday party in Austin and instantly took a liking to him. His presence was/is infectious. Johnny served in the U.S. Army during the Iraq War in the elite 2nd Battalion 75th Ranger Regiment. So … Johnny was an Army Ranger during the Iraq War. … That’s intense …  Afterwards he spent a few years doing paramilitary work protecting US amb assadors to Iraq, and after a period of feeling lost and disoriented in the transition from always vigilant combat-ready military operator to regular ol’ civiilan life, he has since moved through those challenges to today be a leader in the men’s coaching community. He’s also the host of the podcast, The Art of Masculinity … In this episode Johnny and I talk about the challenges men go through on their journey to manhood, particularly the very process of even defining what it means to be a man. We talk about what it looks like when a man is present to his every day life, and why it matters. Johnny also shares one of his key practices that he uses to help a man stay oriented every day towards the life he is committed to living.

ELEVATE 2023 – My year-long coaching journey for men committed to thriving in every domain of life – is now open for enrollment. I’m only inviting 10 men to go through all of 2023 with me, personally, on this adventure of a lifetime.

Who is this for?

It is for you … IF …

  • You have achieved some level of success … yet still feel unfulfilled.
  • You’re simply seeking a greater level of fulfillment than you now have.
  • You’re committed to rising above the distractions & compulsions that are sabotaging you from living your fullness as a man
  • You’re done trying to lone-wolf it through life … this is for you.
  • You’re stuck in some critical area … and ready for a breakthrough, or you know you need to be challenged and supported by other men, to help move you along on the journey of becoming the Man you were born to be … this is for you.

Essentially, this is for you if you are committed to thriving in every area of your life. If you are a man who knows there is more beauty, more depth, more satisfaction, more fulfillment, more truth, to be experienced, than what you are currently experiencing, this is for you.

It includes personal coaching with me throughout the entire year, alongside a select group of solid men going through this year with you. We’ll also meet in person for a 5-day retreat in a beautiful nature spot. Through this experience these men, and I, will become your brothers for life. You will be challenged to go beyond your comfort zone, and you will be celebrated when you succeed, or even when you fail but you did the thing you were afraid of. Because this experience isn’t just about making more money or having more sex or achieving more of anything, only to still feel that void that just haunts us men … it’s about each of us stepping more deeply into our courageously authentic selves, and more fully offering our gifts to our loved ones, our families, our communities, and the world, whatever that looks like for you.

If this intrigues you, get the details and apply at


This isn’t for everyone.

But if you have an inkling it might be good for you … apply now. Just take the next step. This could be the one of the greatest gifts you ever give yourself. The gift of brotherhood with extraordinary men.
