Manly Resource Center

Welcome to the Manly Resource Center!

I hope you become a frequent visitor to this page, because this is where I will be collecting manly resources as I come across them, shortcuts to help you add tools to your toolbox, while you are on the mission of being a better man today than you were yesterday.

I will have sponsors of this show.  My pledge to you is that the sponsors I have will be thoroughly vetted, they will be products and services that I believe are ACTUAL RESOURCES, things that can help you in some area of your manly life.  I encourage you to make use of these sponsors.  Some of them will have a particular code or website that is associated with this show, these are affiliate links and when you use these links I will receive a small commission.   It is these small commissions and other revenue streams that support this show and ensure that I can keep on doing it.  I thank you in advance for your support.

My new book, FORGING A MAN, is now available on Kindle, here is the link:  Forging A Man




I have revived an old product, a book I wrote based on the journal I kept while I was a contestant on a Reality show in Norway, called Alt For Norge. It was an amazing experience that changed my life in many ways.  I went on to meet my wife because of this experience and even though all this happened in 2012, I continue to be blessed by the experience I had, the people I have met, and the wonderful memories that were created.
