We live in some interesting times, to say the least. Coronavirus, the reaction to Coronavirus, political unrest, freezing temperatures across the country, riots, and so much more. And, unfortunately, rather than meeting these challenges on our feet like men, many have allowed fear to dictate their course of action.

Today, I am joined by former Navy SEAL, Eddie Penney to talk about living life unafraid. We talk about dealing with death, addressing and overcoming the victimhood mentality, equality vs. equity, where morals and values are derived from, and how to live fully in spite of the fear that surrounds us.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The things that people are afraid to talk about
  • The silent majority
  • The trend of a degenerate society
  • Believing in the sanctity of human life
  • Getting on your knees and kissing ass
  • Treating everyone equally
  • The best person for the job
  • Difficult conversations with friends
  • Believing you’re entitled to things
  • Feeling excluded and left out
  • Teaching your children about motivation and drive
  • The discomfort in being selfless
  • There’s no consequence to laziness
  • Standing on your own two feet
  • Socially adjusted kids
  • The “unafraid” movement
  • Addressing the elephant in the room
  • Leading with a mature response
  • Feeling blessed with your circumstances
  • Proving something to yourself
  • Turning things around
  • Fighting for what is right
  • The threat of losing freedom
  • Being manipulated and controlled


EDDIE PENNEY

My guest today is Eddie Penney. He spent 20 years in the military as a Marine initially then a Navy SEAL assigned to Navy Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU), better known as SEAL Team Six.

He’s an absolutely incredible human being and has proven himself to be a tremendous asset in the military, to his children, and in later founding the Contingent Group which is an organization designed to provide safety and security needs for people and organizations domestically and internationally.

THE IRON COUNCIL

I ask every new member of our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council, why they decided to band with us, and, overwhelmingly, it boils down to accountability.

Accountability just isn’t something many men seem to be getting in any other capacity of life. But inside of the Iron Council, we have developed the systems and strategies for maximum accountability to other high-achieving men and, more importantly, accountability to yourself.

And, we’ve found that when a man learns how to harness the power of accountability, he is able to be much more productive, effective, and fulfilled in every other area of his life. Accountability fills the void that many men experience in their lives.

So, if you’re looking to harness the power of accountability in your life, we invite you to join us in the Iron Council at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

Today, Randall and I talk about the timeless messages for men found in the movie, how and what sacrifices must be made to achieve our goals, how to qualify other men who can serve as your band of brothers, discovering something that calls deeply to you, and ultimately, how we too can live our lives with the courage and bravery conveyed in the life of William Wallace and Braveheart.

RANDALL WALLACE

My guest today is the legendary Randall Wallace. You may not recognize his name but I guarantee you that you are deeply familiar with his work.

Randall is a screenwriter, director, producer, New York Times Bestselling Author, and songwriter. He wrote Braveheart, Man in the Iron Mask, Pearl Harbor, and We Were Soldiers among many other incredible motion pictures, many of which he produced and directed and has won several Academy Awards.

He is an insanely talented individual – far beyond what I knew when we agreed to do a podcast together – and he is deeply reflective and insightful around the subject of men and masculinity.

You guys are going to really enjoy this conversation. It was incredibly powerful and inspiring for me.

IRON COUNCIL

Gentlemen, very quickly, I wanted to introduce you to the Iron Council if you’re not already familiar. Randall and I have talked a bit about in this conversation the power of brotherhood and finding other men who are qualified to be in your corner.

Unfortunately, it seems to be increasingly difficult to find those types of men and develop powerful bonds that will help both of you succeed. That’s where the Iron Council comes into play.

Inside the Iron Council, there are over 800 men who are all like-minded and working towards the same goals and objectives. These are incredibly motivated and ambitious men and they have not only the desire to succeed but to help all the men inside the Iron Council do the same.

Feb 9, 2021

My guest today likely needs no introduction. His name is Tim Kennedy and he is one of the most interesting men on the planet. I had the opportunity to talk with Tim remotely years ago but to be able to sit down with him at his home was one of my favorite opportunities since I started podcasting over six years ago.

We get into a lot during our discussion together including his plans to replace traditional education with something that will serve our sons and daughters much better, why he believes there are forms of “toxic masculinity” in society, his thoughts on some sort of “mandatory military service,” why his wife completely believes in him, and his personal mission to protect and preserve human life.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Apogee Acadamy and Apogee Strong 
  • Becoming an FBI profiler 
  • The lies about masculinity
  • Lowering the standard 
  • Thoughts on mandatory service 
  • Fostering culture and commitment
  • To protect and preserve human life
  • How failure impacts us physiologically
  • Finding growth in physical pain
  • A wife's undying support
  • Stepping into the cage

TIM KENNEDY

As I said earlier, my guest today is the one and only Tim Kennedy and he is one of the baddest men on the planet.

He is an Army Ranger Green Beret, a former UFC fighter, and, among so many other things, he is in the process of opening a school that will teach young men and women in ways that are much more conducive to their overall success.

On top of all that, Tim is extremely thoughtful and insightful and has always provided me with a new and/or deeper way of looking at my role as a man.

Men, you are really going to enjoy this conversation. I know that I did.

CRAFTING THE PERFECT DAY

It doesn’t matter what your goals are if you can’t craft a strategy for attacking the day that moves you systematically toward the completion of those goals.

And, inside our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council, we are talking about exactly this – crafting the perfect day – for the month of February. The truth is that I’ve spent years of my life floundering around wondering how I was going to make something of myself. To a degree, I believed that when it was meant to happen, it just would.

It wasn’t until I was introduced to several mentors who explained to me the importance of a powerful morning routine, certain strategies, tactics, and tools to use throughout the day, and how to perfectly recap your day in order to carry the momentum over that I begin to realize what I set out to accomplish.

If you’re interested in learning those exact strategies and formulas that I learned years ago, please join me in the Iron Council at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

Feb 2, 2021

You know, I’ve spent the last six years trying to formulate the perfect conversation and keep it within a certain topic. But the more I have conversations with incredible guests like mine today, the more I realize that a real conversation goes where it goes and isn’t confined to a particular topic.

So, when I had the opportunity to sit down with Evan Hafer, founder of Black Rifle Coffee Company, I realized there was tremendous value in letting the conversation go where it wanted to go. We talked about archery, his recent controversy with both the right and left side of the political spectrum, how to lead and manage well, racism, pop culture, and just about everything in between.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Getting into archery
  • Fist adaptive athlete archery shoot
  • Struggling in business
  • Trying not to focus on the negative
  • Getting through trauma
  • The ego-driven mentality
  • Applying communication differently
  • Dictators Vs. Leaders
  • Being the “nice guys”
  • Having productive arguments
  • Communicating your brand
  • Protecting free speech at all cost
  • Big governments “one size fits all” solution
  • The path of least resistance
  • Adding value to other men
  • Being the maximum version of yourself
  • Flexing the creative muscles
  • Earning confidence 
  • Recalling the miserable times
  • Improving things locally

EVAN HAFER

My guest today is the one and only Evan Hafer. Of course, you likely know that he is the founder and CEO of the leading Veteran-Owned coffee roastery, Black Rifle Coffee Company.

But he’s also a former Green Beret and a hardened badass. I had the opportunity to sit down with Evan at his ranch in San Antonio and although I’m sure there are preconceived notions about who he is, this man is a marketing genius and has, in a period of six years grown his company from roasting coffee out of the back of a Humvee to an international brand that employs over 400 people - many of who are United States Combat Veterans.

I think you gentlemen are going to dig this conversation that we, fortunately, got to do in-person on his ranch in Texas. I enjoyed the hell out of this conversation. You will too.

CRAFTING THE PERFECT DAY

Gentlemen, inside the Iron Council, for the month of February, we’re going to talking about and challenging each other to create and formulate our perfect day.

Of course, “the perfect day,” is subjective but we’re going to be holding each other accountable for the entire month to testing and experimenting with systems, strategies, tools, and resources to maximize each day to its fullest – from the time we wake up, to the way we go about our duties, to the way we cap the day to carry momentum over to the next.

The reality is that each of us can squeeze more productivity out of every hour that we have and it’s our goal inside the Iron Council to show you how to do exactly that through accountability, teaching, instruction, and brotherhood.
