Episode 293 is about the diamond in the rough.

When we work, we don't just make more. We become more. That's advice from the Pope himself. I got to hang out with Andreas Widmer, who used to work for the Pope and now works for you. For years and years, through his stories and experience, Andrew has helped men declare value for themselves. He's shared how the answers are within you and that change is never done.

He offers a ton of wisdom for entrepreneurs and is interested in getting the word out of self-love especially for men. We cover a lot of ground including: choosing yourself, what it's like to work directly with the Pope, dealing with your inner conflict, how to deal with feeling used, the need for validation and overcoming it. Today we'll dig into Andreas's insights of authenticity, facing conflict, and doing conscious work towards finding your purpose.

To help you break through and see the diamond inside, we provide support for men in all walks of life, follow us at
