Ryan Michler is a husband, father, Iraqi Combat Veteran, and the Founder of Order of Man.


Growing up without a permanent father figure, Ryan was left to learn how to be a man on his own and with the help of a few strong men in his life.

He believes that most, if not all, of the world's biggest problems could be solved if males everywhere learned how to be better husbands, fathers, friends, and leaders. He's on a mission to help all men become the men they were meant to be.

Strongpreneur & Personal Trainer Ted Ryce has had the pleasure to train celebrities such as Ricky Martin, Robert Downey Jr. and Richard Branson. He also works with many top level CEO’s & entrepreneurs to help them reach their life and fitness goals.

But, things weren’t always smooth for Ted. He’s had to overcome several rounds of personal tragedy in order to reach his levels of success.

“It’s just to show you that ANYONE can overcome tragedy and succeed in life. I’m living proof that YOU can succeed too.”

In this episode of the SPN Podcast I ask Ted questions like:

  • What did you learn about yourself from all the tragedy you went through?
  • You’ve been a fitness trainer for 17 years and worked with celebrities and some top CEO’s…are there any habits or mindsets that jump out at you from these top performers?
  • What surprised you most about working with Richard Branson?
  • You’ve got 5 minutes before you go on stage to give a talk that will save humanity from their troubles….what would be your main points?
  • If you could only do one exercise for the rest of your life, what would you choose?

Who Is Ted Ryce?

The following is from Ted’s website, Legendary Life

I’m Ted. I’m a 37 year dude who has a passion for helping men build muscle, lose fat, develop more confidence and go after what they want in life. I’ve spent the last 16 years of my life experimenting with exercise, nutrition, supplementation to find out what methods help — and which ones are hype.

Leadership is a topic that you’ll find an endless supply of information on. Here’s a little bit of my take and a few reasons why you should stop calling yourself a leader.

1. You continue to not reach goals

Each year you set goals in your business and each year you fall short. A true leader wins. He gets results. You can have a great game plan, good players and a ton of support…you can even be a real likable guy. But, in the end..you will be judged by the results you produced.

2. You want credit

I have a large ego and want credit. I want the world to know that I’m doing good! Real leaders don’t want the attention when things are going well…they point to their people and give them credit. The only time they should pull the attention on themselves is when the team fails.

3. You don’t create more leaders

Because you’re the center of everything, others can’t grow to their full potential….AND THEY LEAVE!
A real leader will find, develop and keep talented people.

4. Your people don’t feel safe

Simon Sinek’s talk “Why Good Leaders Make You Feel Safe” says it best…so, Google it. The bottom line is that if the environment is right in your organization your people will feel safe. There are many things in the world coming after your people…many threats in their lives. A true leader will sacrifice her own comfort, opinion or position in order to provide safety for the people she serves.

The leader sets the tone…
How do you measure up? Which of these resonates with you most? Is it time to level up your leadership skills for entrepreneurs?

Today’s guest went from a self-described money moron at age 22 to self-made millionaire 13 years later by raising his financial IQ and implementing some simple concepts. These same concepts are the same things he teaches others now in order to help them get out of debt, save more money and retire early.

In this episode of the SPN Podcast I ask Scott questions like:

  • If you could be a guitarist for a day who would you be?
  • What kind of head trash did you have about money?
  • As a financial coach what are some of the most common issues you see?
  • What do you tell the guy who’s in his 40’s and behind financially?
  • You’ve got 5 minutes before you go on stage to give a talk that will save humanity from their financial troubles….what would be your main points?

"You become the average of the five people you spend the most time with." Jim Rohn

If you want to rise to new levels in your life you must be choosy about who you hang out with. 

An anonymous Strongpreneur Podcast listener asked…

"I need to find some new friends who are open-minded and will push me forward instead of pulling me down like some of the knuckle-heads I’m hanging with today. Where do I find these people when I’m stuck in a circle of turkeys?"

In this episode I talk with Peter Vitale, founder of Cornerman Life Coaching. Peter gives his take on how he helps men become better equipped for what life throws at them by being a strong mentor standing in their corner. You’ll hear us discuss:

  • How to find your greatness
  • Personal re-invention
  • What most men wished other people knew about them
  • Failing in business and choosing to get up again
  • And more!

 

Who Is Peter Vitale?

Peter Vitale is a seasoned guy with old school values, but is keenly aware of today’s man and the setbacks that befall him. Peter believes that our culture has failed to produce when it comes to the personal development of men and is one of the reasons we have a runaway culture, the deterioration of our homes and a country in decline! Peter has been working with men in areas such as personal development, men in transition, divorce, alienated fathers and the like.

His desire is to see men restored, renewed and reawakened full of purpose and fulfillment as they excel in their lives both personally and professionally.

In the business arena, Peter was the founder and CEO of two corporations and an entrepreneur for over thirty years. He understands the demands of business and the importance of family and the balance that needs to be found between the two. He has been a coach and motivational speaker over the years and has been married for 31 years to his wife and has raised two strong sons. Peter does not speak from an ivory tower but has experience hardship, setbacks and loss in his own life and understands what it takes to get up, re- invent yourself and move on to a wonderful life.
