ManTalks founder Connor Beaton has gone from construction worker to opera singer to guy who lived in his car. Like many of us, he made some bad choices and ruined multiple friendships and relationships. When his despair finally reached a point where he was willing to open up about it to a few of his closest friends, he saw, to his surprise, that his openness and vulnerability allowed them to be vulnerable as well. This made him want to begin take a deeper look into psychology and the ways that men can form deeper friendships and achieve success through greater self-awareness.
On this week’s episode, he and Dan talk about the ways that men can unpack their fantasies–whether they involve sex, money, fame, power, or all of the above–to find out who they really are and who they want to be. They also discuss all the reasons you need to make peace with your shadow side, and how to ask yourself the kinds of questions that will help you have a real and lasting impact on your work, on your love life, and on the world.
