Living in Canada, Guatemala and Costa Rica, Rick Fortier is a writer of fiction and non-fiction, poet, mentor, motivational speaker and advocate for men to get “unstuck”, empowered and vulnerable.

He is a regular contributor to The Good Men Project with a #1 viewed posting for a week entitled “Exposing The Myth Of Happy Wife Happy Life“.

He has been a featured guest on podcasts and is a self-published author with a book of short stories entitled “100 Quickies”.

Rick shares his perspectives and experiences in order to help men recognize the societal expectations put on them, while encouraging men to actively choose the man they truly want to be.

Rick’s core values are vulnerability, compassion, honesty and empathy. He is committed to living his life with authenticity and integrity.

I have stories to tell, experiences and perspectives to share.
