In November after several months of coordinating, I was finally able to sync up with German from Modern Manhood in Edmonton to record a podcast. German runs an awesome podcast that concentrates on the lives and viewpoints of many different male voices talking about their own masculinity.
We talk a lot about vulnerability and transparency. These are topics that I believe deeply in talking about and unfortunately they are often viewed as weakness in business and in life. The more we talk about this, the better.
I personally don't love my voice or recorded speaking style but apparently people like this episode so I should probably just get over it. We discuss (amongst many other things) my previous experience (before Work Nicer) in the hyper-competitive and perception-based security industry, what it's like building a communities, the difficulties in starting a business, leaving this world better than the way we found it, and what it's like to sometimes feel like you're not doing your part to contribute to your household while being open and honest going through it all.
Even though Work Nicer exists to support our members while they're building their stories people often forget that we are building and scaling the business ourselves. We are going through the same journey as many of you and have a lot to share about where we've come and where we're going.
I really enjoyed my time with German and I'm honoured to have spent some time with such an awesome human being. Seriously you should go check out his work.
You can listen to the podcast right here.
