The Manual to Manhood

20:42 – 

Guys like to have skills and accomplish things. But many guys didn’t grow up with fathers and grandfathers to show them the ins and outs of being a man.

Don’t worry: Jonathan Catherman, author of The Manual to Manhood and a mentor to men, opens the discussion on what it means to be a man and how to cultivate a mindset that inspires courage and conviction.
