Superfans: The Easy Way to Stand Out, Grow Your Tribe, And Build a Successful Business

The magical moments that turn your followers into fans.

Customers, followers, subscribers.

It’s easy to just look at the numbers. How many likes? How many purchases? How many email subscribers?

But as entrepreneurs, we have to remember that there are people behind all that data. People who are looking to us to be a leader, to give advice, and to care. They are looking for trustworthy tools and resources, and for someone to help them to achieve their goals. In this dog-eat-dog world, these are the people who are looking for someone who they can trust, and who they know have their best interests in mind.

These are the people, if you connect with them in the right way, who will become Superfans.

You don’t need to change the entire world to build a successful business; you just need to change someone’s world.

People don’t become superfans the moment they find you. They become superfans because of the magical moments you create for them over time.

This book will help you do just that.

Stop Being the “Nice Guy” with Dr. Robert Glover

Many of us take pride in being the “nice guy.” But could being the nice guy be ruining our lives?

We are all probably guilty of Nice Guy Syndrome on some level. We sometimes give only to receive in a passive attempt to get what we want without directly asking for it. We avoid conflict to get the acceptance, validation, approval, and even the sex that we need. Some of us might not even realize we suffer from Nice Guy Syndrome and wonder why we are anxious and unhappy.

Dr. Robert Glover is back on The Dad Edge for a discussion we all need to hear. He talks about how to stop being dependent on external things for our happiness. He shows us how to reclaim our identities after losing ourselves in relationships. He also explains why we need to get comfortable with our existential fears to become empowered men.

Stop being a nice guy and start living true to yourself!

If you have to give up anything that’s important to you to be in a relationship, it’s going to create a toxic environment.

Dr. Robert Glover

Dr. Robert Glover, author of No More Mr. Nice Guy: A Proven Plan For Getting What You Want in Love, Sex and Life. Dr. Glover is an internationally recognized authority on the Nice Guy Syndrome. He is a frequent guest on radio talk shows and has been featured in numerous local and national publications. As a result of his work, Dr. Glover has helped thousands of Nice Guys transform from being passive, resentful victims to empowered, integrated males. Along with these personal changes have come similar transformations in these men’s professional careers and intimate relationships. Dr. Glover is the creator of Dating Essentials for Men, the director of TPI University, and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Washington. Dr. Glover divides his year between Bellevue, WA and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

What You’ll Learn

  • Nice Guy Syndrome, at its core, is codependency.
  • Borrowed functioning means your wellbeing depends on the happiness of those around you.
  • It’s an anxiety and shame-based disorder. You manage people and situations to avoid anxiety or feelings of worthlessness.
  • Losing ourselves in relationships is not healthy, even though we’ve been taught that it’s noble to throw ourselves on the sword for our wives and kids.
  • The difference between fusion and differentiation
  • What most of us call “intimacy” is losing ourselves in another person so much that there is no distinct otherness anymore.
  • Fusion kills sexual passion.
  • The “Alpha Male” in human society who takes all is a myth. Things (including women) were shared.
  • Marriage emerged much more recently with the patriarchy.
  • Up until 100 years ago, marriage was an economical arrangement. Romantic love is a new idea.
  • Pair bonding in modern times doesn’t work well for happiness.
  • What you can count on in a relationship is that your childhood baggage is going to reveal itself.
  • Tension is healthy. Anytime there is tension, there is growth.
  • It used to take a whole tribe to meet our needs. Expecting one person to fulfill all our needs is impossible and unfair.
  • Differentiation is two complete adults who choose to be together.
  • If we are acting as an independent person, we are more attractive to the opposite sex.
  • Almost no one is sexually monogamous, even if they aren’t physically cheating on their spouse.
  • Men give up control in their marriage and then get resentful. Then we sneak around to get our needs met.
  • Friends are often the first thing men sacrifice.
  • Angst from being disconnection from our tribe
  • It’s human nature to try to find connection because we’re afraid of disappearing into nothingness. Practice getting comfortable with existential fears to be more self-reliant.
  • Men load up their to-do lists, don’t get everything done, go to bed stressed, and wake up the next day with even more to do. If we stay busy, we don’t have to feel anything.
  • Learn to be with stillness.
  • Schedule unscheduled time. Build chunks of time into your day for unscheduled things and things that matter.
  • Appreciate life right now. Today is the best day of your life.

benefits of a plant based diet for men

The Benefits of a Plant-Based Diet for Men with Fraser Bayley

The plant-based lifestyle seems to be everywhere lately, but is it really possible to maintain our bodies without animal protein? Won’t we feel tired and hungry all the time? What about our libido and testosterone levels?

Today’s discussion will reveal the surprising benefits of a plant-based lifestyle for men. Our guest is Fraser Bayley. He has founded Veg Up with his wife, Lauren, and together they help people cut through the confusion to achieve peak performance, an amazing body, and insane mental clarity on a plant-based diet.

You will hear how a plant-based diet can radically change your bloodwork, your energy levels, and your psychological wellbeing. You will also learn how being the healthiest dad you can be will make you more available for your kids while setting an example that will prime them for a healthy adult life.

Fraser Bayley

Fraser was a former butcher back in Auckland, New Zealand before he left the industry to study Nutrition, Human Structure & Function and Personal Training at the University of Auckland and Auckland University of Technology.

Coming from a former life of severe mental health issues, Fraser has spent the past 15 years deeply immersed in psychology & the human mind. Being an INFJ on the Myers-Briggs personality test, he seeks to understand the human mind as much as possible! These concepts are heavily woven into how he teaches their students all around the world.

He enjoys nomadic living & travel in their RV, hiking & outdoors, reading & learning from people from all walks of life.

What You’ll Learn

  • Where do men get protein on a plant-based diet?
  • It’s not what you consume, but what you absorb. Are you absorbing all the protein and nutrients in your current diet?
  • We’re meant to believe we need more protein that we really do.
  • You can play with your macro-nutrients if you get the same number of calories per day.

mindful father

The Strong, Mindful Father with Navy SEAL Jon Macaskill

The next generation is our responsibility. Our kids are watching us. What kind of world do we want them to build?

Today, The Dad Edge celebrates episode 300! Thank you to all of our listeners for being part of this community of men who want to Live Legendary. When we invest in ourselves, when we join together, when we level up, it changes the world. If you’ve been enjoying the show, please take a few seconds to leave us a review and let us know your thoughts.

Our guest for this milestone show is Jon Macaskill. He is a Retired Navy SEAL Commander, a husband, and the father of two. He is also the Executive Deputy Director of Veteran’s PATH, a nonprofit helping veterans rediscover meaning, purpose & joy through mindfulness, meditation and a safe community.

Jon talks about how he uses his training and experience in the SEAL teams to achieve seemingly impossible goals. He tells us how to respectfully cherish our spouses and parent as a cohesive team. He also teaches us how to become strong, mindful fathers by overcoming selfishness and practicing compassion.

Not for self, but for country.

Jon Macaskill

​Jon is a Navy SEAL Commander turned mindfulness and meditation teacher. He’s a Naval Academy graduate and has his masters in Operations Research from the Naval Postgraduate School. Jon has served in Iraq, Afghanistan, off the coast of Somalia, and in Panama. Jon brings mindfulness and meditation to high performing teams to aid in dealing with stress, anxiety and depression all while increasing focus, creativity, and productivity. He is dedicated to introducing meditation and mindfulness to veterans to bring them a sense of Peace, Acceptance, Transformation and Honor​ (PATH) after his 24 year military service career ended in June, 2020.

Jon’s wife also served in the Navy and is now a civilian Orthopedic Physician Assistant in Virginia Beach. They are both proud parents of two small children and currently live as a family in Chesapeake, Virginia.

What You’ll Learn

  • How and why Jon went to the SEAL teams
  • How he survived the grueling BUDs training—He didn’t come to go to the BUDs. He came to be a SEAL. BUDs was just a stepping stone to his dream.
  • When you feel like giving up, ask yourself, “What’s the larger goal?”
  • How you treat your wife as an equal.
  • The man is not the head of the household. The two of you make the head.
  • Cherish your bride. Become a parenting team with your spouse.
  • Why selfishness prevents you from accomplishing what you want in life
  • How to push past pain by solidifying your vision
  • Goal ladders–what are goal ladders and how to use them
  • Once you reach a goal, always ask, “What’s next?” Keep growing.
  • The most important lesson Jon wants to instill in his kids is compassion for others and compassion and for themselves.
  • We beat ourselves up for failures, but they are only failures if we don’t learn from them.
  • Jon’s new life as a mindfulness meditation teacher
