Boysen Hodgson from the ManKind Project stops into The Empowered Life with some awesome fortune cookie advice for men
I got a chance to chat with Boysen recently and I asked him about his life, his mentors and the ManKind Project.
“How many $6 beers have you wasted hanging out with guys who never matter in your life?”
“How often the transition from ‘F*ck You’ to ‘yes’ changes our lives.”
To his mentor, Will Flanders, “I want to thank you. It’s been a decade. As terrified as I am… I learned things from you about how to be in relationship with me, with my wife, with these beautiful girls who I am now father to… Thank you.”
