I’m Mike, and I’m a bit weird.
I like to ponder the simplest and most complex of things. I’ll question how the tides work, look at the moon in wonder at the universe, wake up and think “How weird is sleeping?!” and approach my own life with the same curiosity.
By nature I’m very safe, considered, and consistent, which can see me be determined in one moment, yet ready to embrace change in the next. I’m strong minded and strong willed; I have many things upon which I will go into battle for, so to speak, but am open minded and willing to flex to look at something from a different perspective.
I’m a naturally curious and observant person and will often withdraw into myself to figure things out. I’m logical and rational, while also not being married to any particular dogma, and happy to dig into different persepctive, as well as my own emotions.
I consider Calming to be my superpower.
I hold authenticity and integrity to be a high value. I’m loyal, loving, considerate and passionate when the subject, or person, lands for me. I’m driven by human connection, adventure, wonder and service. I value my health and my freedom – of mind and experience.
I find a strong creative spark at the interaction of simplicity and performance.
I’m naturally shy around new people and situations and may take some warming to, but once you’re in, you’re in. However, I also endeavour to grow and challenge myself, so constantly push my natural limits on this.
I’m a little weird and different and take pride in being so. I don’t really like to conform and have always had a penchant for making my own path in life. I believe everyone should embrace their own eccentricity, that’s what makes us fascinating. I am, however, by no means ‘off the wall’. I’m just me.
I have a passion for fighting mediocrity and supporting everyday men to reach their potential, yet I’ve never been in an actual fight. Nor do I have any desire to.
I love to cook, eat and talk to my food. I love (my wife) Nardia, my family, stone fruit, cold beer, red wine, coffee, whisky, tequila, caramel ice cream/anything, and to think of myself as a Low-Level Batman. I like to lift heavy things, eat meat and spend time with the people that matter most to me. And I LOVE a good hug.
I’m Mike, and I’m a bit weird. Who are you?
I’m also a men’s coach, author, founder of The School of Personal Mastery coaching program for men. I’m the creator of the interview show and events, Beyond The Beers. I support everyday men from across the globe who are questioning where they’re at in life, to sort their shit out and get what they want in relationships and life.
I derive genuine purpose in bringing about a new way for men to communicate effectively and confidently navigating their lives.
After living a safe and comfortable life of fitting in through my teens and twenties, I realised a spark in me, and it was a desire to continually grow and be my best. This spark became a fire and developed into a desire to support men in realising their potential and empowering those around them.
You’ll find my advice to be uncomplicated and immediately actionable. I believe strongly in making things easy to follow and implement and cutting out the confusing noise and misinformation, making Modern Masculinity accessible to everyday men: supporting you in getting your shit as together as it can be.
