We share about our experiences as men growing up and in relationships, share revealing statistics about men today, explore male vulnerability and emotional authenticity, speak about our experiences in fatherhood, the impact of all of what men experience on their relationships and personal growth, and so much more.

Approximately half of U.S. adults reported experiencing loneliness, even prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. The issue recently moved U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy to issue an advisory around the "loneliness epidemic" in America. Soon after, Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy introduced a bill that would launch an Office of Social Connection Policy, and fund CDC research to "better understand the epidemic of social isolation and loneliness." While on The Colin McEnroe Show in July, Murphy said the move was "part of a broader exploration for me of what is eating in America... I have come to the conclusion that there's a lot of new and unique things that are hurting Americans and making them feel unhappy today," chief among them loneliness or "aloneness." This hour, we explore how loneliness, isolation and social disconnection are being addressed where we live. Deb Bibbins and Gary Sekorski founded For All Ages, and more recently, the Connecticut Collaborative to End Loneliness, to help bolster and centralize resources. How does loneliness or isolation affect you?

Leave us a review!KEY TAKEAWAYS:-- Most Stylists ask their coach to help with the following: -- getting clients -- negative self-talk -- low confidence -- imposter syndrome-- Do not forget your job. It is not your job to manage your client's finances. You don't have to change your prices to accommodate your client's finances.-- Selling should not be hard. Your clients have needs, and you service them by recommending the products and tools they need to keep their hair looking good in-between visits.-- If you are struggling to build clients, you may have personal work to do yourself. Maybe you doubt yourself too much, maybe you beat yourself up, or maybe you just are not doing as much of the work that is needed to accomplish your goals.-- Coaches, mentors, and doctors can help you navigate these things.MENTIONED IN TODAY'S EPISODE:

MIKE HATCH, a recovering pornography addict with 20 years of experience coaching, mentoring, and discipling men, will join us to discuss the dangers of pornography; his book, "Manhood: Empowered by the Light of the Gospel"; and his podcast, "Throwing Mountains". FROM HIS BIO: I lived much of my life in the dark until I was eventually forced into the light. It was through this painful process of being exposed to the light, and then learning to walk in it, that I discovered God's grace, gained freedom from the dark, and was empowered by the light of the gospel. Most men today are in hiding. Isolation and loneliness has defined us as a generation, and we are disempowered by the lies of the darkness. As a result, we feel inadequate and incompetent at home and in our marriages. We lack a centered identity that would otherwise provide the confidence we need to lead our families well or maintain personal integrity. I currently serve as the National Relationship Generator for CLC, a men's discipleship ministry (clchq.org). I love sharing my story and helping pastors to empower the men in their church through a relational approach to men's discipleship. https://empoweredmanhood.com/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/mikehatch02 https://www.amazon.com/Manhood-Empowered-Gospel-Mike-Hatch/dp/1632695987/ref=sr_1_1?crid=UEZ0GPJ683VX&keywords=mike+hatch&qid=1693657037&sprefix=mike+hatc%2Caps%2C212&sr=8-1

Most of us have that thing that can transport us out of our current state of being and to happiness, whether it's a smell, taste, song, etc. But what happens when you can't seem to find those things to help you find your happiness? This week my guest Sean Douglas and I discuss his own experience with deep depression and suicide attempt. Through the help of those around him, he was able to start to change his mindset, pull himself out of the dark, and in turn, create a space where he can help others who may find themselves in a similar situation. Sean is The Founder of The Success Corps, a U.S. Air Force Veteran, a TEDx speaker, a Master Resilience Implementer & Suicide Awareness Trainer, a Business Positioning Strategist, an International Radio Show Host of Life Transformation Radio, and an International Bestselling Author. Sean works with entrepreneurs, speakers, and business owners to improve their positioning in the market, increasing profitability while decreasing their anxiety and stress so their business thrives. While their businesses thrive they boost their own overall happiness. We'll touch on: [3:38] What does happiness mean to Sean? [5:45] How to hunt for the good by asking in every scenario, “But what is great about this?” [8:45] How we can build a habit of seeing more positive or negative thoughts by focusing on what we want to see. [13:13] Looking for your own confirmation bias. [18:05] Revisiting a time before Sean had the tools to process emotions and hard times. [19:44] Sean's own experience with suicide ideation. [22:47] Pressure to perform how we feel we should. [26:07] How people can begin to find hope and help if they are feeling isolated.

Volunteering improves psychological well-being. Team Rubicon has researched this positive effect, not just on the communities it serves, but also on the well-being of its 170,000 volunteers. The organization applies military expertise and speed to provide fast response and social support to those who have suffered a disaster. We learn from David Burke and Patti Norberg about the many benefits they have found with volunteering. David Burke is the Chief Program Officer at Team Rubicon, an organization that was founded by US armed forces veterans in 2010 with the purpose of voluntarily joining together to work on missions in the aid of regular citizens who are suffering because of natural disasters. Patti Norberg PhD is a Professor of Marketing at Quinnipiac University in Connecticut, and also a good friend of Tim Houlihan. Team Rubicon is a veteran led humanitarian organization that serves people before, during and after disasters and crises. It's a movement of thousands of people that work domestically and internationally from mitigating the effects of fires, floods and natural disasters. They are instrumental in missions to rebuild people's homes, surge medical capacity and provide clean water. From the offset, the purpose of Team Rubicon was not just to help disaster survivors, but also to support veterans' well-being after leaving the military. And Team Rubicon goes one step further by actually researching the effects on well-being and mental health. Kurt and Tim discuss the findings from this research and how it is shaping the ongoing work of Team Rubicon. Topics (4:37) Welcome and speed round questions. (6:56) What is Team Rubicon? (8:53) How does a military background help Team Rubicon volunteers? (11:01) What makes Team Rubicon different from other volunteer organizations?

Welcome to "The Bible in Today's World", the show that compares today's world with the Word of God. In general and specifically, are we following the Bible in our daily walks? Is society demanding that we follow the Word of God in all that we do? Does our Almighty Father look upon us and frequently say, "Well done, good and faithful servant!" - or is He thinking of us as He thought/thinks of Sodom and Gomorrah? On today;'s show, we will explore the "Biblical Role of Men, Part 2" - We also played Part 2 of my interview with Christian counselor/podcast host, MIKE HATCH. MIKE HATCH, a recovering pornography addict with 20 years of experience coaching, mentoring, and discipling men, will join us to discuss the dangers of pornography; his book, "Manhood: Empowered by the Light of the Gospel"; and his podcast, "Throwing Mountains".

Have you ever thought, "dang, I just got out of work and I already dread going back tomorrow!"? Most of us have, and in response we did something to make ourselves feel better, something to take the edge off: we treated ourselves to an ice cream cone or binge watched our favorite Netflix series. That's the norm of 21st Century capitalism. Today's episode is about America's drug problem, but I take a route through a number of related topics including capitalism, leisure time, the "culture industry" (a term coined by Theodor Adorno and Max Horkheimer), and Marx's alienation.I also cover some theory from Friedrich Nietzsche, Theo Adorno, Max Horkheimer, Herbert Marcuse and Karl Marx.

Today, the Two Mikes were joined by Stella Morabito, a staff writer for the The Federalist, and the author of a new book called The Weaponization of Loneliness:How Tyrants Stoke Our Fear of Isolation to Silence, Divide, and Conquer (Available from Amazon). Ms. Morabito argues that the federal government and its bureaucrats, doctors, and business/tech allies, used the Covid Pandemic to push the isolation of Americans as far as possible. Imagine, Ms. Morabito said, if there is anything more isolating and sadistic than U.S. government orders preventing children from visiting their dying parents who were forced into old folks' homes and hospitals. The entire Covid sham was a federal government effort -- on orders from the UN's WHO and the World Economic Forum -- to oppress its opponents, manipulate the presidential election, attack religion by closing places of worship, and isolate Americans from each other as much as possible. The impact of the latter has created a spike in mental health problems in adults and children across America, and the federal government is using that fact to take measures that will further isolate Americans by claiming that another Covid attack is coming and will be accompanied by another nationwide lockdown. The first fake pandemic weakened the ties of Americans to family, friends, community, and faith in God, the second is intended to break those ties. Ms. Morabito also said -- and remember this one -- that the federal government wants to isolate Americans because isolation promotes conformity, and because it fears the non-conformity that is empowered and supported by an individual's close ties to family, friends, community, and faith. The degree of this fear i s clearly shown in a recent report from the U.S. Surgeon which urges the federal government to take over the problem of isolation and create laws that will allow the government to "fix" the problem of isolation. Who knows? The government has a lot of those cages that Obama used for children at the border and they may be the first step the Congress approves to "fix" the isolation problem. The next step probably is the elimination of free speech, which Ms.Morabito accurately says is the great "connector" of people.

This is episode 1 of a 4-part special series on mental health with psychiatrist Dr. Paul Conti, M.D., who trained at Stanford School of Medicine and completed his residency at Harvard Medical School before founding his clinical practice, the Pacific Premiere Group. Dr. Conti defines mental health in actionable terms and describes the foundational elements of the self, including the structure and function of the unconscious and conscious mind, which give rise to all our thoughts, behaviors and emotions. He also explains how to explore and address the root causes of anxiety, low confidence, negative internal narratives, over-thinking and how our unconscious defense mechanisms operate. This episode provides a foundational roadmap to assess your sense of self and mental health. It offers tools to reshape negative emotions, thought patterns and behaviors — either through self-exploration or with a licensed professional. The subsequent three episodes in this special series explore additional tools to further understand and improve your mental health.
