This is the inspiring story of an Alpha who became that against all odds. Bill Schuffenhauer spent some of his childhood homeless and was in 17 foster homes because of his mother's addictions and prostitution. As he became a man, he made some Alpha decisions about who he was going to be and became a three-time Olympian. He is now a motivational speaker, an advocate for homeless families and coaches corporations and mentors men dealing with depression, addiction and suicidal impulses. This is such a big opportunity to learn from a guy who's been there and done that, from the despair that led to a suicide attempt, himself, to representing the USA in three Olympic Games and winning the first medal for the US in 46 years in four-man bobsled. Trust me, this will challenge you to reach for the Alpha in you. Questions answered today:  When did you first realize that you were special and had some gifts and talents?  You had every excuse in the book...why didn’t you fall into the trap of making excuses?  When was your athletic journey the hardest and what did you do then?  What was your motivation to succeed?  Of all of your accomplishments and successes, what single moment stands out the most as a defining moment in your journey? Describe that.  Do you or did you have haters?  What struggle are you the most proud of for pushing through?  What makes a man a real man?  What is the most 'alpha' thing about you and were you born with that or did you develop it?  What are you doing now?

Alpha Nick joins the quorum with a super-charged and premier-value message for dudes who wanna level up as an entrepreneur. The change in thinking that will happen in you will boost you toward everything to which your heart is trying to guide you. This dude's a straight frigging ALPHA and needs to be heard. Nick lived in Asia for six years and has 10 businesses. He teaches that the ability to start businesses fast and cheap is a worthwhile skill to build for the evolving Alpha entrepreneur. Being able to ask uncommon questions has been a major key to his growing success. From his home in his flip-flops and board shorts, he operates Find Fakes, a highly-successful international counterfeit-defense company that last year removed over 600,000 online listings for counterfeit products on trademarked items like popular streetwear. He and his wife created a conversation starter card game for couples that is highly popular on Amazon.com. He explains the method he used to start this business with zero of his own money. His resourcefulness will astound you as he motivates the aspiring business owner to take courageous steps in the direction of who they really are. Dig deep into YOU, but also do the research. He teaches that men should first truly come to terms with what is important to them and what they want, an absolute prerequisite to executing well as an entrepreneur or otherwise-Alpha out there who is trying to magnify his distinction. You will hear the voice of a well-read man, a dedicated father and community servant. He will teach you what it means to get on the other side of your ideas and make them happen. He shares the books and influencers that have had the most impact on him and teaches from his experience in the execution of multiple top-selling retail products and brand-protective services for small- to medium-sized worldwide corporations. Nick's charismatic swagger will enliven whatever is already good in you. Give this one a listen, brother. You need to be different.  https://www.amazon.com/Uncommon-Questions-Conversations-Relationship-Strengthener/dp/B078J7WJY7 --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/alphaquorum/message
Sometimes we are flat wrong and the things we thought we knew are way off base.  Today we’re going to be discussing how to know when you may be wrong and what to do next. My guest Jimmy Durbin teaches some high-value lessons about why men are so prone to having trouble admitting when they are wrong and outlines the steps he needs to take to grow into that kind of maturity.  This is the most valuable message in all of our 61 episodes to date.  Whoever you are, this will help you, trust me.  Questions we answer today: What makes us believe that we are right even though we are headed the wrong direction about something? What are some indicators that we may be wrong about something? What would an ALPHA do upon discovering that he is wrong? How can we approach life with the humility that we may be wrong sometimes? What about over-apologizing? --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/alphaquorum/message
Host Brad Singletary interviews his father, Emory, in this Father's Day 2020 Special.  "Today, I'm interviewing a man that has shaped me more than any other man. He's been on this planet for three quarters of a century. He's been married for 56 years. He raised six children professionally. He's done everything from being an over the road trucker, a commercial fishermen, an international business executive, a hospital business manager, a practice manager for a surgeon, an administrative director of a hospice organization and owner of multiple corporations. He's volunteered with the Red Cross, the Boy Scouts of America, and he spent decades serving in his faith community and volunteer roles. He graduated from Florida State University, but of course holds honorary doctorate degrees from the school of hard knocks. Our guest today describes what it means to be a real man and how he has grown over 75 years of failures and successes." Brad's dad begins by sharing the example his father set about restraining emotional reactions when he broke his own father's tooth with a pair of pliers. Emory describes the problem with the 'faux alpha'...men who are too angry and self-oriented, leading too loud thereby pushing people away. He recounts mistakes he has made and what he might have done differently.  Taking supplements, drinking water, exercise and planking have kept him healthy into his 75th year, 23 years after an 8-vessel bypass which was previously thought to only have been remedied by a heart transplant. He teaches how an Alpha can bring life wherever he goes with friendly conversation and how strong negotiations begin with simple engagement. He shares a story of how he worked for free with a failing non-profit who was being evicted from their office building until he found ways to increase revenue sufficient to pay for a brand new multi-million dollar facility which was paid for in cash. Brad's father was an expatriate business executive and lived in Jamaica where he learned what it meant to be a minority, reversing some of his upbringing in a racist environment in the South.  He shares what he hopes for his sons, grandsons, and great-grandsons: that they live lives which reflect a relationship with God and enjoy a happy home life. In this Father's Day Special, Brad and his father get up close and personal about their own relationship and what they have learned together about being a good man.  Alpha Up.  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/alphaquorum/message
In another super-personal and starkly-informative episode, Brad Singletary discusses his own experience with suicidal thoughts and what he did to save his own life.  Brad describes the Alpha Quorum's intention with using the term 'alpha.'  We are talking about men who are strong, capable, reliable, getting things done, and are enjoying fulfilling lives.   The Alpha is concerned with LIFE.  He has a life. He preserves his own capacity and remains strong, saving himself first: physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. He enjoys life and faces challenges in his own journey with courage and diligence.  He creates life. He brings life, not by fathering children, necessarily.  But where ever he goes he brings light and life and brings value to any situation he finds himself in.  He passes life on in his relationships to those close to him, and every human that he appropriately can.    He saves life. He lifts and rescues those in need, helping others preserve their own life.  Brad recounts a traumatic family experience dealing with the suicide of an American soldier.  He also describes some mind-blowing statistics about the duration of the crisis leading up to a suicide or an attempt, most often counted in minutes, not days.  Suicidal thoughts should be seen as a medical crisis, much like sudden blindness or pissing blood.  He shares tips for how to recognize suicidal risks and what to do when you or someone around you is feeling these things. Whoever you are, this information will prepare you for a situation that you will likely be affected by in some way or another during your life. Please listen and share.  https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/means-matter/means-matter/duration/ --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/alphaquorum/message
Validation.  In its simplest form, it's recognizing your spouse or partner.  When you validate her, you see her - you get it.  That's what she wants and needs from you.  Today, we're going to talk about what validation is, how you can provide this need to your partner, and how being a high-value man is the ultimate validation. Questions to be answered today: What is validation, and why do we need to validate our partners? What is the ultimate source of validation in a relationship with a woman? How and when should I validate my partner? Do you know your partner and what kind of validation she needs from you? What is validation? Direct feedback - you see the actions and contributions Acceptance for who she is.  Her thoughts/feelings are valid. being with her without judging her What validation is not ? You don't have to agree or accept her ideas as your own. You don't have to give up your ideas to accommodate her. Not correcting her if you perceive faulty logic (just being emotional) (invalidation) Why do we need to validate our partner? Validation elicits participation - promotes communication, intimacy (better sex) Let's your partner know you are engaged (Red 9) and on the same page Maslow's hierarchy of needs - validation is a part of esteem, this makes her feel protected, less isolated, less vulnerable, and safe. You!  An Alpha is a high-value man. You are a leader- the kind of man she's proud to be with.  Be a WIN for her. High-value validation- it feels good when someone at work notices your contributions, but when the big boss notices you, it's on a whole other level. You meet and exceed her expectations - you get it. How does being a high-value man validate her? Not reactive, you're in control (exactly what she needs when she needs validation) Honest with her when you need to be (this adds value to your validation, she knows you won't just patronize her, your talk isn't cheap, it's genuine) You being with her is social proof that she's a high-value woman. Your self-validation makes you a high-value man. When you validate yourself, you lead by example.  The stronger influence you have in her life, the more she will mimic you (follow your lead through mirroring) Living by Red 9 principles makes you a high-value man An Alpha is balanced, he keeps her inspired, his words matter because he lives up to his ideals (he has validity). Sincerity Don't be disingenuous.  That will just make her suspicious (does he just want to get laid) Be consistent.  Consistency will prove your authenticity. Be truthful, say what you see. Other tenets of validation Be present, paying attention, not multi-tasking, really listening. Acceptance - there is no right or wrong, no judgment, no fixing When do you validate her? Good to be consistent, but don't make it something you check off a list each day, reserve it to when needed so it remains genuine. When she's not expecting it, be engaged enough to notice any changes in mood. Especially during a bad/stressful day, be discerning. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/alphaquorum/message

Over 50% of marriages end in divorce. Some research indicates that 5 years after divorce, people are no happier than they were in their “unhappy marriage.”  While sometimes divorce is the only option, it isn’t always the only option.  Today we will be discussing how separation can, in many cases and when done with the right approach, save your relationship.  We share some insights we have gained from men we have worked with on this, some applicable research on this topic, and some of our own very personal experiences with separation as a means to save a marriage. Questions to be answered today: What are the not-so-obvious issues that make people believe that divorce is the answer? Why is separation something that men should consider as an alternative to divorce? What actions should a man be taking during a separation? What does a successful separation and eventual reunion look like? This segment is about separation as Option C. Stephen Covey talked about continuing to look for alternatives in general until you find something that works. Option A might be to continue to stay miserable in a dead relationship. Option B may be divorce (which can feel like an emotional murder-suicide). Option C is often separation. We aren't encouraging anyone to separate, rather we are encouraging people to consider separation before proceeding with a divorce first. You can always get a divorce; you can file tomorrow.  But once you do, you can’t undo it.  Is there any decision more impactful on your ENTIRE FUTURE and the ENTIRE FUTURE OF GENERATIONS AFTER YOU than whether to not to stay married? Sometimes it is an inevitability.  Sometimes divorce is the only sensible choice.  But let’s talk about how not to BLOW the one of the biggest decisions you will ever make. No Excuses. Alpha Up. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/alphaquorum/message
In our most deeply-personal episode ever, Brad, Taco Mike, and guest Jimmy Durbin discuss how they all three survived lengthy separations that ultimately helped save their marriages. Learn from these examples about how they were wrong in the first place, how they were wrong throughout the process, how they made it right again and how YOU can get right by recognizing your own part in relationship wrongs, regardless of your current status as a single, married, partnered, separated or divorced person. We discuss how trauma, failures from past relationships, self-righteousness and fake, phony strength and other issues made us drift intro colossal failure. Mike makes a comparison between his past and a character from Lord of the Rings, Jimmy discloses his slow maturing process, and Brad outlines his self-righteous judgement and projecting, all of which led to near-divorces. Ultimately, we became grown-ass men and acknowledged our faults and worked it out. Miraculously, our wives forgave us and we are each now happily married. Brad and Jimmy are therapists and Taco Mike is a recovery and relationship coach and entrepreneur. We teach how our crucial mistakes created pain in our lives: ego masks denial addiction blaming perfectionism control idealism impatience We also share how we discovered these principles after a lengthy season of hardheadedness and how these saved our relationships: humility patience discipline gratitude forgiveness of self and spouse controlling selfish urges contact with a higher power ongoing dialogue with honest men If you are the person in a failing relationship with a dirtbag of a human, this can help you understand where he may be coming from and what you may be able to do to help him. Who*ever is reading this: you need this information more than you could even know. You don't even have to be in a bad relationship to learn through our experiences what may be amiss, perhaps even in you. This episode colorfully illustrates the grueling and gut-wrenching experiences of a combined 5 years of manning-the-freak-up by three unassuming alphas who learned to conquer their self-absorption and reconnect with the women they love. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/alphaquorum/message
In segment two of a two-part series on healthy relationships, we explore the role of commitment and conflict resolution in healthy relationships. Questions answered in this episode: What is the role of commitment in good relationships? How do we improve our ability to resolve conflicts in romantic relationships? Other topics discussed: HOW DOES THE TYPICAL, UN-EVOLVED DUDE DEAL WITH COMMITMENT Holes in the fence Flirty Lusts after others DEFINE COMMITMENT In the short-term, to the decision that you love this person in the long-term: the decision to maintain that love. These two aspects of the decision/commitment component do not necessarily go together, in that one can decide to love someone without being committed to the love in the long-term, or one can be committed to a relationship without acknowledging that one loves the other person in the relationship. DECIDE TO LOVE THEM They’ve probably changed Decide to be their person, always Me now vs. us always DECIDE TO MAINTAIN IT Do the work Decide to stay Decide to be loyal Know where the pitfalls are BOUNDARIES Stay true Don’t jeopardize it with poor boundaries HOW DOES THE TYPICAL DUDE FIGHT?

You’re in a relationship that isn’t working or certainly not as well as you’d like.  Maybe there isn’t enough of something that you once had, but you don’t know what it is.  You feel a growing emptiness and want to do what you can to salvage this thing.  While it takes two willing parties to make a relationship work, we introduce some things that help you at least identify what might not be working and how you might make adjustments to have a happier relationship. In part one of a two-episode series, we explore the concepts of passion and intimacy from Dr. Robert Sternberg’s Triangular Theory of Love.  We address how men get it wrong in these two areas and how they can change their attitudes, actions, and attributes to have a healthier partnership. Questions answered in this episode: What are the factors that create a healthy sense of passion in a relationship? How do you develop intimacy with your partner? What is the role of commitment in good relationships? How do we improve our ability to resolve conflicts in romantic relationships? Other topics discussed: How the non-alpha handles passion The role of fun and humor in creating passion Increasing your attractiveness without overdoing it How arousal works Some differences in sexual fulfillment for men and women Intimacy defined How the average guy messes up intimacy Increasing friendship and conversation How her closeness with her friends and your bonding with your own tribe of dudes improves your sense of intimacy in your romantic relationship Relevant Links: https://alphaquorum.com/ https://tacomoto.co/ https://bradsingletary.com http://www.robertjsternberg.com/love https://www.amazon.com/She-Comes-First-Thinking-Pleasuring/dp/B0007Q1CI6/ref=sr_1_3?crid=2KZOF8U2KR0LL&dchild=1&keywords=sex+books+for+men&qid=1586497276&sprefix=men+sex+books%2Caps%2C278&sr=8-3 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001E2NXBG/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_hsch_vapi_taft_p1_i2 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/080241270X/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_hsch_vapi_tpbk_p1_i0 --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/alphaquorum/message
We are wired for anger.  It is protective. Jordan Peterson says that aggression is the default in our wiring and chemistry.  Testosterone is the power hormone but too often we get tricked into believing there is a threat when there is none.  Today we’re going to discuss anger and how men can be more aware of what they are feeling and have more control of an emotion that too often diminishes our actual power. Questions answered in this episode: What is the nature of anger.  What is it and why are men so prone to the struggle with anger? What biological and cognitive processes predispose us to anger? How can men be more aware of what’s happening with their anger and gain more control over this often destructive emotion? What are the actions that men need to take if they have a pattern of destructive anger? Other topics discussed: Anger is a gift to protect us It has evolutionary value. The tribal man who could become angry survived. It remains with us through natural selection. All about the “fight or flight” response We can be tricked into believing there is a threat. The role of managing expectations in maintaining emotional regulation How incorrect interpretation of triggers create negative emotions and negative reactions Relevant Links: https://alphaquorum.com/ https://tacomoto.co/ https://bradsingletary.com --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/alphaquorum/message
We live in troubled times. If there ever was a time for men to step up and be leaders, it is now. While the coronavirus may not be affecting you and those around you yet, it will.  Estimates are that one in 10 Americans will get the virus.  You will likely not *die from this illness, they say, but the impact has already begun in terms of anxiety and worry, we see this in the grocery shortage.  It is affecting the economy, people are losing their jobs, and your wives and children need your strength.  Today we will be discussing how you can be a man of strength when everything is falling apart. Questions to be answered today: What exists in the average guy that may create challenges for him at a time like this? What are the principles that men can govern themselves by in tough times? What are some things that men need to be doing to preserve their own strength? How can men be supportive of others, within their own families, other dudes, and their larger communities? Major topics discussed: How to deal with fear and doubt. Why it is unproductive to gather conspiracy theories. Instead focus on what you control. The Earth doesn't care about you. Nothing is owed to you by anyone or anything. You are not special. You have a duty to provide and protect. Real men feel a responsibility to take action assisting the vulnerable. Spend ZERO energy on what you cannot control. See this as an opportunity to learn new things. Get creative. Be humble and appreciative. Call on your higher power. See how you can serve others. See yourself as connected to everyone else. Continue to be disciplined. Get up, get dressed, make the bed, sort out your day, and keep up on maintaining your home. See this entire thing as a gift and be grateful for it. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/alphaquorum/message
In this episode, hosted by Mike Olsen, we discuss boundaries in relationships and in the workplace. What is the definition of “boundaries”? What kinds of problems are created with un-defined, un specified, lack of clearly defined boundaries? Undiscussed boundaries lead to resentment, disappointment, anger, frustration, sketchy behaviors, then excuses. What happens when boundaries are overly rigid? Isolated, boring life, stifling creativity and spontaneity, suffocation What does it look like when you have healthy boundaries: Negotiated between the parties, third party approval, free and safe to explore who they are / what they want to become, safety and security, permission to explore life, shared control. Why men lack assertiveness in boundary setting? Fear, laziness, people pleasing Effective ways to set boundaries?  What are the words to use? Pro TIPS: “I” statements: discuss what you are willing to do, NOT what the other MUST do. Don’t duck out.  Don’t quit. If you need to take a break, do so, but don’t walk out entirely and not come back to it. Believe that at the end, there will be a solution, make it so. Be as emotional as is warranted, and be free with those emotions Put them in writing if you feel you can't communicate them verbally Learn how to argue and negotiate, be gracious in your ‘defeat’ Accept that conflict is going to happen and be mature enough to endure it “What do you expect the boundary to look like” Define the  boundary title.  What is it you are trying to decide? Examples of  when a boundary is crossed? Finances “Dates” or involvement with other people Lying Substance use What is a HEALTHY way to deal with a crossed boundary Relationships are continually re-negotiated based on new information or new situations as they come up, be mature and wise enough to see where you may have been wrong-humble and teachable Communicate Move out, sleep in a different bed, do what you gotta do. Communicate effectively, right time and right space, that the boundary has been crossed. Schedule it. Allow your partner to prepare Let them know that there has been a boundary crossed and it’s important to discuss. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/alphaquorum/message
