Josh Tyler - The Savage Gentleman

Fridays are always my favorite. Not because it's the start of the weekend but because I get to hop on these calls with the aspiring, young, savage gentlemen of Apogee and the likes of the most savage gentleman: Josh Tyler. Life is not without its challenges. There is a huge advantage to those who seek challenge out early so they're more equipped for those ahead of them. Today we chat about the value of finding the mentor who will push you to be your best. Remaining humble to the fact they likely know better than you will put you worlds and away above the competition. JOSH TYLER Today's guest is Josh Tyler, a professional fighter and survivalist. He is the co-founder of Savage Gentleman, a retail brand and ethos that believes that men are both savages and gentlemen. Josh is also the host of a podcast by the same name. I've followed Josh for a long time, within the fighting sphere and his brand Savage Gentleman. The concept of the Savage Gentleman is something that has deeply resonated with me. It's a phrase that I use to describe the qualities of a man who is a good man and is good at being a man. This is the foundational mentality that we're working to create in the young men in Apogee. Much of the credit for that goes to the mindsets of men like Josh Tyler. THE SAVAGE GENTLEMAN "The world is full of savages and gentlemen. Rare is it to find the man who can be both. It is not ideal void of all traits of masculinity, nor is it suitable to succumb to one’s every base desire. There must be a balance struck between the two sides of the same coin that is manhood. This is the plight of the savage gentlemen, to cultivate both aspects of his being and achieve his full potential."
