Episode 121: Ryan Michler – How To Build Your 1,000 True Fans

If you have a desire to build your own tribe full of raving, engaged fans, then this is a great episode for you.  I originally met Ryan Michler over a year ago… He was in the midst of building his community, “The Order of Man.”  It’s incredible to see how far and impactful his community has become in just 12 months.  In addition… Ryan and his wife had their 4th child the DAY BEFORE we recorded this episode.  Ryan is a man of his word and didn’t want to cancel even in the midst of having a child!  Incredible.

Ryan Michler is the creator of “The Order of Man” and “The Iron Council.”  The Order of Man is a website that provides fantastic value to leaders who strive to improve on a daily basis.  Ryan also has a podcast with the same name.  I was fortunate to be a guest on his show in May of 2015.  You can listen to that episode HERE if you would like.

Bio From OrderOfMan.com (In Ryan’s Words)

Most of my childhood was spent without a permanent father figure in my life. I never learned how to work on my car, I never had the chance to roughhouse with my dad, and I didn’t even learn how to throw a baseball correctly until I was a freshman in high school.

Looking back on it now, I wonder how my life would have been different if I had a permanent male influence in my life. What would the world look like if there were more men in it? I’m not talking about males. I’m talking about MEN (there is a difference).

Now that I have sons, I’m committed to being the dad that I never had. We do all kinds of great things together-sports (I coach ALL their teams), build tree houses, and roughhouse ’til we’re exhausted.

As I talk with other men, I can see that there is a huge need for learning how to be a better father. But I’ve also seen a need for strong and honorable men outside of the home.

Guys, we’re losing the meaning of manhood. We’ve gone away from being strong, rugged, independent, and tough to a collection of wimpy, dependent, whiners. Something has got to be done!
