Being better men today, than we were yesterday

Prepare to have your thoughts provoked...your ego challenged...and your character tested!

I am a man that wants to be a little better today than I was yesterday.  I want to keep doing that every day until I die.  I'm inviting others to join me in this quest.

    Lessons are very helpful

  • lovely stories
    November 9, 2017 by kwmcdill from United States

    I'm a woman who loves to listen to Alf, especially his stories from his childhood. Many of his experiences and insights resonate across the sexes. For a podcast directed towards the masculine, there is an extreme amount of tenderness in Alf's presentations.

  • Love it!

    February 19, 2017 by PapaTT3377 from United States

  • Becoming a better man
    February 17, 2017 by Bdr516 from United States

    This is a powerful podcast with a powerful host who provides actionable tips for self-improvement. Highly recommended!

  • Thank Alf!
    February 1, 2017 by Account Nickname from United States

    This is a boast and a challenge to me and other men on a regular basis. Thank Alf.

  • EP 153 Got Me Hooked!
    January 13, 2017 by B. Keenan Johnston from United States

    Wow! Alf Herigstad has a truly honest approach towards the question, "How to be a Better Man?" I couldn't agree more with what Alf said in EP 153, patience, dedication, and giving 100% without looking for reward is the key to manhood. American society needs more men like Alf to speak up and guide the fatherless men in this country towards masculinity.

  • Guide Post for Men
    January 8, 2017 by Vickie Maris from United States

    Alf provides mentorship in this show along with help in the area of mindset. A great podcast. Vickie @ Online Course Connections

  • Not for men only!
    January 4, 2017 by nyesvenska from United States

    I am currently binge-listening to these podcasts. Alf delivers much-needed messages about how to be a better (hu)man in the context of wonderful un-preachy personal stories. Excellent meditations for anyone looking to improve themselves. Thanks Alf!

  • Love it
    December 14, 2016 by ash28504 from United States

    The small timeframe shouldn't allow so much deepness into a subject, but it does and it does it very well. #139 Power of Silence is the very essence of what I just mentioned. The fact that not much was said, but enough was. Check it out and Become A Better Man

  • Very Important Focus
    December 3, 2016 by Paul D Johnson from United States

    Such an important topic podcast, Keep up the great progress. I have a guest suggestion for you and will be in contact.

  • The Right Stuff!
    November 19, 2016 by JHHealy from United States

    I work with men in addiction recovery and this is the show I send them to for inspiration and more!

  • Nuanced and thoughtful
    November 19, 2016 by djdecrypt from United States

    Alf provides a great perspective on gender and thoughtfully handles serious issues. I loved his quote, "We are the example of manhood to whoever's watching." An important reminder for all of us!

  • Succinct and Insightful
    November 16, 2016 by blind Youth Guy from United States

    The fact that the podcast is generally published 3 times weekly is great. This allows for shorter podcasts and also gives a metaphorical shot in the arm throughout the week. Alf’s style, while far from PC (which I appreciate) is not that adopted by blowhards filled with righteous indignation. His to-the-point demeanor somehow remains both candid and kind. My son is 11, and we have listened to quite a few BABM podcasts together. I am also archiving them for my son and 8-year-old daughter to listen to as they grow older and have families of their own. Thanks, Alf, for your impressive and much-needed content. I hope more “adult males” will find your podcast and website and let your words of wisdom make them better men.

  • Wonderful Show
    November 6, 2016 by colinpthomson from United States

    Definitely a podcasty worth subscribing to! Really enjoy listening to it! Anyone who is intersted in character of men and how they can improve over the times, will enjoy this.

  • Not only for men!
    October 30, 2016 by thuysf from United States

    As Alf mentions on his website, all are welcome to listen to his show. I got lots of insights from the interview with Tom Schwab but also from the shorter episodes. Try one episode and you will catch yourself wanting to listen to more!

  • Zeus?
    October 28, 2016 by Dan Louzonis from United States

    Alf's common sense and masterful delivery exalt him....he sounds like a true, powerful sage, like Zeus! This is a great podcast, an oasis, to ground yourself early in the morning.

  • on Being A Better Man
    October 28, 2016 by Jamie | from Canada

    Love the show and the concept, Alf. This is needed. Today's culture often tells men that our identity is wrapped up in being stupid, lazy, and drinking beer. I sat around with 5 guys the other day who all said the person they look up to most is/was their father... although your show isn't about fathers specifically, men can be better, and I love the message you are sending!

  • I'm a better man because of this podcast
    October 28, 2016 by Peter Philip Bailey from United Kingdom

    Short episodes packed with unbelievable actionable advice. Each episode has something you can use TODAY! And if you're not compelled to act on the advice in each each episode then you have issues! Today I listened to "why men gossip" and because of the actions advised in this episode, I will be a better man tomorrow! Thanks so much to this guy for his work - he's now a brother from another mother

  • Alf is literally THE man
    October 27, 2016 by Walter Eggers from United States

    I love the men's space and this podcast is perfect for all men young and old. "Being a better man" is not only the title but the goal and entire point of the dichotomy Alf is bring you. The value and morals in the stories and guests he features is absolutely priceless. If you are a man, this is your podcast. If you are a woman, make sure the man in your life listens.... and share it with others!!! Crazy awesome valueable stuff here folks! Keep rocking it Alf, stellar job! ~ Walter J. Eggers

    September 24, 2016 by Wally - from United States

  • Great Podcast
    September 19, 2016 by Karen Schwab from United States

    I am a female but I still enjoy listening to Alf and his perspectives on Being a Better Man. I especially like when he talks about how he practices being a better man in regards to a situation with his wife. It's a great show with good insight that even females can learn from.

  • Lost in a Blizzard
    September 17, 2016 by Kent Trabing from United States

    Wonderful story of Alf making his way to his grandmother's funeral as a young man, and in his earnestness to get there, made a foolish mistake. How someone's kindness and hospitality saved his life, saved future generations, including his 9 grandchildren.

  • Great Mentor
    September 16, 2016 by Duffash from United States

    Alf has a way of teaching that uplifts and inspires. A true leader.

  • Loved the episode about working on the weekend
    September 16, 2016 by YourParentingMojo from United States

    "When you figure out what kind of unique value you can provide to other peple, then those people will give you money for it. That's how it works." I've often wondered at the disconnect between how corporations treat people and how the people who head up those corporations like to be treated. Thanks for inspiring me to continue my pursuit of my unique value - I think I've defined it; now I need to get the word out!

  • So great

    August 12, 2016 by Don from Virginia from United States

    Driving down the road I found myself mentally planning what I could do today to improve over yesterday. I then realized that this direction in my thought was a direct result of this podcast and Alf's powerful but simple call to action: Be a Better Man Today then you were Yesterday. Deep and important concepts on manliness presented in a laid back and easygoing, storytelling way. Pulls no punches though. I listen to many podcasts but this is at the top of my list.

  • Valuable, insightful, and relatable!
    May 20, 2016 by Mockaitis from United States

    This podcast focuses on the character of men and what kind of person you are (rather than career, money, success, etc.). It is Alf's personal opinion that we should all be on a path of perpetual improvement, which I agree with. Nobody is perfect, and there is always room to grow and improve. This podcast challenges you to take a good, hard, honest look at yourself and identify the things that you know you could do better. One of the episodes I found particularly interesting was about handling conflict like a man. This one is important because we handle conflicts all the time, particularly on a personal level between you and another person. Alf argues that, as men, it is our duty to handle it well, especially when you're dealing with people who matter to you. His strategy for conflict resolution includes: not engaging with people when they get emotional or irrational, remaining calm in all situations, taking the high road, being the bigger person in every situation, admitting when you're wrong, and thinking rather than reacting. Obviously this takes practice, but I think more people should work on this. There was also an episode about the importance of eye contact as a form of nonverbal communication. Generally, the perfect amount of eye contact is between 30% and 60%, depending on the situation. Too much eye contact or too little eye contact can make people uncomfortable, and as men we have a responsibility to make the people we come into contact with feel at ease. I found myself listening to several episodes, all equally engaging.

  • great listen!

    Love the unique niche of this podcast!

  • Inspiring show for female humans too!
    April 15, 2016 by LulieNH from United States

    I just listened to episode #36, Eric Williams, and felt compelled to finally write my review of this podcast. Two of my favorite men are in this show: my husband, and one of the men who is responsible for us meeting 3 years ago. Hearing them discuss important topics about family, show biz, creativity, personal challenges and responsibility had me on the edge of my seat, and had me look deeply into my challenges and where I 'gave up' or didn't give things my best. It had me see where I was diminishing my own impact in the world, and how I've been hiding out (especially lately). It inspired me to go out there and be a better human than i was yesterday -- And to honor the stories I have to tell from my past experiences and share them as something worthy and valuable, instead of being glad that they are fading into oblivion because many contain discomfort and embarrassing moments. Alf and Eric, thank you for the insights and great work you are doing!

  • All men can learn from Alf

I will definitely be sharing this podcast with my husband as he is always working on bettering himself. Side note: I especially loved the Valetine's episde with his wife ... SO SWEET!

    February 19, 2016 by Michaelalder34 from United States

    I just tuned into Alf's beard episode. On title alone I had to check it out but he made a great point of covering his appearance upfront before doing a public speaking presentation! This was very helpful for me to consider on my next speaking engagement to keep the audience focused on my message and not my appearance!

  • Great topic!
    January 22, 2016 by Gene_HPLN from United States

    Really needed topic - how to be a better man! Thanks of the podcast, keep it going!

What's going on here? Good Question...

It's a journey, not a destination

If we are committed to being better men today than we were yesterday, it is a never ending journey.  Every tomorrow is a new today, so the effort and focus of perpetual improvement has to be re-applied day after day.  It's the journey that will make us better.

It's a community

I cannot emphasize enough how important your participation is here.  I'm just one guy, but together we are an army of men, all determined to be better men.  So comment, interact, like us on facebook and twitter, ask questions, answer involved.  The path is easier when you have friends.


If you don't have a SHOULD!  Every man can benefit from the advice and experience of other men; advice from men who have been in their shoes, men who have learned from the mistakes you are about to make.  Check out the MANTORING PROGRAM, available exclusively at Being A Better Man.
