Regular Guy Chat with Anthony | Being A Better Man Episode 288, February 3, 2023

A semi-regular feature of Real Men Feel is Regular Guy Chats. That is when I have a conversation with an average dude with nothing to promote, just a willingness to share.

The first Regular Guy Chat of 2023 features Anthony Scire. Like most men, Anthony wears many hats; personal trainer, father, husband, friend, mentor, and outdoor enthusiast, to name a few. In my experience, Anthony is, first and foremost, a good man.

We discuss Anthony’s experiences growing up, encountering the “man box,” the ManKind Project, and wanting to be a better man. We explore doing the hard inner work, honesty, integrity, authenticity, humor, and being of service.

Anthony shares a number of books that have helped him and what he’s learned about himself after feeling disappointed by other men.

“I want to be that person I didn’t have. A better human, a better man.”
