Interview with Order of Man founder, Ryan Michler

Austin Komarek published on

In this episode I interview Ryan Michler. Ryan is the founder of the Order of Man website, blog and podcast. Order of Man is a community of motivated and ambitious men working to improve in all areas of life. The Order of Man is focused on a wide variety of topics and facets of manhood ranging from self mastery to finance. Ryan is also a committed husband, father of three, Army veteran and financial advisor. 

What you will hear from listening to Ryan is that he is a man who has his values and priorities in the right place. His path in life is parallel to my own and we are both on a journey of self-discovery with our projects. Although it didn’t make it into this podcast Ryan shared with me some insider tips on how to make my Podcast better, some of which I implemented on this episode. It’s exciting to know that Ryan is an ally on the path of helping men become better men. He's doing great work in the world and proving to be a valuable man in our society.
