Rick is a passionate writer, speaker and thought leader, sharing his experiences and perspectives as a man. He is a Certified NLP Practitioner and SMART Recovery Facilitator.
Who was Rick?
Rick lived and breathed a conventional corporate life with all the trappings and pleasures that went along with it. He appeared to have it all: a family, cars, homes, career and a pension on the way.
Yet, he was a mess.
He struggled with relationships, his health, integrity, authenticity, honesty, anger, unhealthy habitual behaviours and a general frustration with life. He felt desperate, inadequate and powerless.
Then over a period of a few months — using anger as a catalyst — he changed everything and everything changed. He had his ‘dark night of the soul’ and came out the other side.
Who is Rick today?
He’s healthier and more at peace. He’s re-married to an amazing woman who is his best friend. He is inspired to live.
Rick still has his faults. There are aspects of himself that he wants to improve. He accepts this in himself and strives to be better.
Life is a rollercoaster but now he’s ‘all-in’ for the ride. He no longer ‘check-outs’ or escapes from challenges. Today, he chooses to be empowered, owning his choices and doing his best to face challenges head-on.
Rick is a communicator of his truth. He’ll share with you what he has discovered about being a man in this seemingly complicated, corporate, consumer and money-driven yet interesting, wondrous and beautiful world.
It’s imperative for Rick to be real, authentic, open, honest and discuss the uncomfortable stuff like: pornography, addiction, relationships and masculinity.
Life as a man is so damn entertaining. Come along for the ride.
