The 3 Big Struggles Men Don’t Talk About w/ Tait Arend (078)

October 12, 2022

MTW GUEST Banner Tait Arend e78

What are the common struggles men face (that we don’t talk about)?

What are the costs of us not talking about it?

If you’re a man, are you aware that you probably don’t trust other men? Do you understand the costs of that?

In this episode, my guest is Tait Arend, my lifelong childhood friend of 38 years, and he and I mine these questions and more for useful insights to make a meaningful difference in your life.

Tait Arend is one of the most brilliant people I’ve ever known, though he would fight that characterization, because he’s also just a humble dude. He and I have been friends for 38 years, and in the last 2 years we’ve started a business together, a men’s coaching business, to help men elevate their relationships and their lives. We’ve already had almost 50 men come through our two programs, our year-long intimate, small-group ELEVATE Coaching Experience, and our new live coaching program specifically for men, Elevate Your Relationship

In our conversation today, we talk about the common struggles men face, in our lives and in our relationships, that we collectively just don’t talk about, and that cost us, and those we love, dearly … sometimes our lives. We talk about the tragic reality that most men don’t trust any other men, and the consequences of that, particularly the burden it places on our intimate relationships. We talk about the resistance men feel to doing deep inner work with other men, and the magic and transformation that inevitably happens, when men finally do cross the threshold from essentially doing life alone, to being willing to be powerfully supported by other trustable men.

So, definitely stay tuned all the way through this profound conversation, as Tait and I shed light on the challenges of men, and a path forward for overcoming them.

I want you to know that 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.

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.
