I am an avid fisherman, a lover of all sports, aspiring to help millions of people transform their lives, a rock climber, a social media nerd, a life coach, an inventor, obsessed with personal development, a reader of all genres, a collector of baseball cards, a lover of watermelon, an intuitive healer, a developing natural bodybuilder, an expert organizer, an entrepreneur, a brand builder, a long-boarder, a slight Romantic, sometimes an insufferable insomniac, a photographer, an almost drowning surfer, an ambidextrous bowler, a killer snowboarder, an on-call rapper, an explorer, a mildly successful car rebuilder, a reincarnated Robin Hood, a certified IKEA furniture maker, an amateur long-range rifle marksman, obsessed with Pawn Stars, an iron-fisted negotiator, a creative thinker, a hard worker, a roofer, a salesman, a Lego architect, a self-proclaimed painter, a creative landscaper, a Renaissance man, and a deep philosophical thinker. I am best at inspiring others to act and have taken that passion and transformed it into a successful coaching career.
My blog is called The Better Man Project and is focused around my journey towards becoming the best version of myself I can be and lessons I learn along the way. Check it out at www.thebettermanprojects.com. (Like I said, salesman.)
I have genetic entrepreneurial blood in my body and have followed my father’s footsteps in creating unique startup companies. I enjoy a good glass of wine, a long run and walks in the depths of the forest. I do not necessarily know where I am going, but I know who I am going to be when I get there.
I am a man of unconditional love, fiery passion, and possess an unexplainable variety of intensity. I never ask anything of anyone that I do not ask of myself (honesty, loyalty, respect), and I strive every day to become a better person. I can grow a full beard, climb trees with ease and make a delectable gin and tonic.
I want to make a difference in this world and have people remember me as someone who went out with all engines burning. I will never own a mini-van…ever.
I will have a baseball team full of children…and do not think that will effect my decision on the mini-van statement. I can reel in a 200-lb halibut in 30 minutes. Spiders scare the hell out of me, and bell peppers make me gag. I have a strange connection with forest that reside deep within the Sierra’s.
I have successfully cooked Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner for 12 by myself. I can bake an assortment of pies and can make little children laugh. I have successfully rebuilt pitchers mounds, to only then wreck them by pitching off of them. People randomly tell me their deepest secrets.
I successfully speared a fly to the door by throwing a Phillips screwdriver from 10 ft. away. I am a quote junkie and will randomly recite movie lines or motivational speeches to people who care or care less about what I am currently saying.
I am a recovering pyromaniac…and have a record of close calls. I collect vinyls, and wish I had a record player. I often come up with nicknames for those close to me, and they usually resemble animals. I have a predilection for Asian cuisine.
If I had to be two movie stars, it would either be Clint Eastwood or Morgan Freeman. If they had to be under 50, Brad Pitt or Denzel Washington. I can iron my own shirts, do my own laundry, vacuum and clean floors with unparalleled precision. My music playlists demand respect. I was once nearly fluent in Japanese.
I’ve successfully discouraged packs of men from hitting on my sister in Europe…just by the sharpness of my jawline. I have sold women’s yoga clothes, have squatted 500 lbs, and have broken many stereotypes about white men not being able to jump.
I will be real with you no matter what, however I do have a tendency for sarcastic and witty remarks. I have been asked if I have bad days. I drink Guinness and whiskey, can pull off legendary dance moves after significant amounts of stretching. I have a tendency to speak foreign languages I do not know in my sleep.
I am, me.

I need your help! Around 6 months ago when I was 6 and half months pregnant my fiance and I broke up because he moved in with new girl and he was sleeping with her while where with me. Now I am having hard time to be okay. I gave birth alone and most time we argue because of baby and because I am so weak too _ that is the only way I can be contacted with him. He meas a lot to me and I am still madly in love with him but he isn’t and I just can’t handle it. With his son I have I feel I want to share things with him but I feel we aren’t important to him. Not saying I have been angle either in that situations. But I want to be okay _ least for my son and be Good mother. But now I don’t feel like it because how much I am heartbroken because of him. Even when he as new life and all that I still hope we get back together even when it’s not reality. So how I get myself together and feel happy and worth something again? I have just no power to left in me and I am desperate for help and not be so desperate for his care and attention. Please help me!!!
I truly enjoy your words. You get “it”. And I’m never entirely certain as to what “it” is, most of the time. All that I can say is that I appreciate that you do…
Just found your blog…am wanting to be a better man. 2 questions, what is the 500 club, and how do you know you’re becoming a better man?

Thank you for sharing your story, your writings, your words and inspiration.
Evan, your write up made me laugh.
I’m an avid reader of anything you write, because you’re a true inspiration. And I totally relate. Was in a bad accident in 2013 and I’m still recovering…it has been a roller coaster.
I appreciate what you do.
Your write up made me laugh.
You’re a true inspiration. I’ve followed you on Instagram for a while until I stumbled on your website. It is true that the things we go through are to shapen us, and ultimately, help others in similar situations.
I’m so trully gratefull for you and this project. I don’t have words for can explain this peace, this smile that comes up in my face, when I read or I watch your vision about the world. So, thank you for dedicate your time and passion in this project. It’s very important for me.

I found you on Pinterest while looking for quotes. I am going through a horrible divorce and custody battle. I love your quote boards and they have greatly encouraged me to keep going on the rough days. You are right the world needs better men. Thank you for your boards and blog.
Hi, I just finished reading your book/journal/life. Thank you for sharing your words with us, I truly enjoyed reading them, they helped me to focus and help me to start defining my life in a different way. Many small changes in my current day to day are making me happier and your thoughts/advices relate to things happening now, they are helping me to define whats important and what’s not. I’m taking actions and doing things, I’m building who what I want to be… thanks
Awesome!!!! Love Your Spirit and Writing… from one 100%er to Another… Keep Your Amazing Strength and Light Blazing Eternally… Helping Change the World for Positive.. Simply by being You!!!
Stumbled upon you on this Pinterest – fangled outlet I have.
Good luck with all your thoughts-turned realities … at least the ones you really, really want to materialize. Pieces of the puzzle fall into place when you are not watching to see who is watching… when you are not looking to impress…
when you are not “steering the river” as Deepak calls it. (love that phrase).
Wish I followed my heart.. my soul my desires…long ago. I was always afraid. Afraid of not being able to be out on my own. Didn’t think I could make it out there without a man or at least a roommate. So I settled. And the results leave me lost and yearning for simple true love and contentment. Many have it worse in the world so who am I to look back and not be happy. I am happy outwardly. At work. With friends. But I’m so empty and sad when at home. I’m not in a good place.
It’s because I was afraid … To be myself.
You are so lucky u know this already!
U have interesting personality and interests . Love reading ur posts.
I just emailed you but would love top he possibility of meeting you in person when I’m up north!
