Anyone who’s been reading my blog for a while knows that I’m kind of a coffee snob.
I appreciate good coffee; I enjoy it. Some might even say that my obsession with the bean is borderline hedonistic. And perhaps it is, but regardless, I recently decided to purchase my first bag of Red Coffee.
For those of you who don’t know, Red Supplements (supplements that actually work) is a joint venture by two of my favorite bloggers: Chris Deoudes of Good Looking Loser and Victor Pride of Bold & Determined.
Up until now I’ve never tried Red Coffee, but due to my trust of these two guys (I’ve been following their blogs for a while) I decided to take a leap of faith and order my first bag. Here’s my honest review of red coffee.
If you’ve been following my blog for any length of time, you know that there’s a ton of paradoxes in self-development that I discuss.
You have to be strong, yet you have to acknowledge your weaknesses. You have to work hard, yet you have to rest when appropriate. You have to be assertive, yet you have to let success come to you. These are all completely mind-boggling paradoxes for the self-development newbie, who can only think in a one dimensional way.
Today, however, I’d like to explain the most fundamental paradox in all of self-development: be humble, yet proud.
“How do I cure depression, Jon?” is one of the most common questions that I get asked. A lot of men are depressed nowadays, for numerous reasons. Well, lucky for you, I’ve struggled with depression, anxiety, and a ton of emotional baggage for most of my life.
A dysfunctional childhood left my psyche completely shattered and fragmented; I was constantly depressed, had horrible panic attacks, couldn’t sleep, and had no motivation to live life. I tried dozens of different ways to fix it, but most of it didn’t work.
Do you know what I’m talking about? That generic advice that you see on like WebMD or some shit, saying to “focus on the positive!” Like yeah, fucking thanks. It’s kind of hard to do that when your mood is like a black hole. I was even on a whole host of anti-depressants, sleeping pills, and other pharmaceutical drugs for a LONG time—none of them worked.
After YEARS of experimentation, however, I’ve created a very simple formula that not only helped me cure depression in myself, but that I know can also help others cure depression, too.
Forward: I have been using Alpha Brain for the last 3-4 years, and here is my experience with it.
I recall first hearing about Alpha Brain from Joe Rogan’s podcast, the Joe Rogan Experience. I was intrigued by the concept of using a supplement to improve my cognition, but I was also wary—I knew that he had a financial stake in the supplement company.
But, due to my trust for Joe Rogan, and the fact that Onnit has a 30 pill money back guarantee, I decided to take a leap of faith. I ordered the 90 count bottle of Alpha Brain.
It arrived in the mail several days later, which I thought was pretty fast, but they ship from Texas so being on the East coast, I guess that makes sense. Regardless, I was sure to record my results.
I actually made a day by day journal for the first 2 weeks that I used it, so that I could look back and decide if I wanted to buy it again…and I’ve been buying it ever since.
In my experience, some of the best men’s colognes are pretty inexpensive. Sure, there’s plenty of great “designer” colognes that will cost you a whopping $500 per bottle. But in all honesty, you don’t need to shell out $500 per bottle to get some good cologne (I had to learn this the hard way).
In fact, you don’t even need to shell out $50 for a bottle. Sure, there’s some great colognes that will run you $50-100 per bottle, but why spend that much money when you can spend $3/month on an equally effective cologne?
Here’s my top 3 best men’s colognes (from experience) for less than $3 a month.
One of the most commonly asked questions I get is: “Jon—how do I get rich?” Well, to be honest, there’s no simple answer to that. There’s as many ways to get rich as there are to skin a cat, but in general, there’s a few rules every rich person follows.
I’ve been re-reading Rich Dad Poor Dad, which is one of the most widely popular books on personal finance ever written, for the very first time, and in this book, Robert Kiyosaki discusses 6 rules that you MUST follow if you want to get rich. Robert Kiyosaki, for those of you who don’t know, is a multi-millionaire real estate mogul…so I think he’s someone we should listen to.
According to him, getting rich really boils down to just 6 simple principles—if you integrate these rules into your life, and genuinely live by them, you will be wealthy beyond your wildest dreams.
A couple of weeks ago, I got this email, and it made me so thankful to see that I’d helped another man become his best self:
I bought your eBook exactly 45 days ago, and I’d like to thank you so much for what you’ve done. I feel like a new man—I’ve been doing everything just like you said, and I can’t believe the results I have.
As I’m writing this, my new girlfriend is lying in bed one room over. This would have never been possible without the immersion period you talked about. I actually bit the bullet and did what you said – I appreciate the insider tips on the best nights to go out in Vegas.
And my bank account? It’s gone WAY up. I’ve started my own consulting business with the confidence I got after taking Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I train three times a week, and take Muai Thai on two of my off days.
I’ve found a mentor, too—I met him at the club, just like you said I would. Turns out he was getting drinks with some clients, and I pulled his girl from him. He thought it was funny (he was about 30 years older than me) and spat some game back. I could see he had crazy game, so we actually ignored the girl (lol) and started talking. Turns out he’s in the consulting biz (like I want to be). I’m meeting with him next Friday to iron out some of the details for my new company.
I gave up porn and masturbating, too – this shit was so hard at first man, I’m not gonna lie, but it’s been one of the best things I’ve ever done. In fact, it’s probably how I got the nerve to approach my current girlfriend.
Thank you so much Jon for everything you’ve done…words cannot express how much gratitude I have, for your blog, your eBook, and EVERYTHING.
If you ever want to do business, you have my email address. I know we’re kind of in different industries, but if you ever need an IT consultant I’d love to help you out.
Thanks again, Jon.

Jerry has conquered it all. His inner demons no longer exist; he’s fought them to the death, and has emerged victorious. His entire life is in alignment with his core principles: he believes in the truth, and his whole life embodies it. He is a man of integrity, and a man of principle.
And because of this, the “material” parts of his life are all in abundance. He has ample money, a nice penthouse suite in Miami, a ton of male comrades, and dozens of gorgeous women who desperately want him to settle down for them.
But this almost dream-like feeling is intoxicating; after achieving it, he almost doesn’t want to intermingle with others who have not attained it themselves. He doesn’t want to come back to “normal reality.”
Gentlemen, this is going to be the definitive guide to any newbie trying to learn game as fast as possible. I’ve thought a lot about potentially putting this in an eBook, and selling it to make some good money, but I’d honestly rather just give it out for free.
This all started months ago, actually—if you read my blog on the regular, you know I talk about periods of immersion vs. periods of maintenance. Basically the idea is that if you want to get really good at something, you have to immerse yourself in it for a period of time. But, if you don’t want to lose the skill, you have to “maintain” it and still practice it a couple times a week.
This is the definitive article for guys who want to get monster game from just a month of immersion.
There’s a new phenomena that’s been sweeping the manosphere, known as kratom.
Kratom is basically a plant native to south-east Asia that can be used for a vast number of reasons, such as:
And more. But today, I’d like to focus on a lesser known benefit of using kratom, which is how it can help you make money.
