Behind the Scenes of the Becoming Kings Book

by Oct 18, 2021

Why write a book?

Today, I’ve given the mic to my roommate, Dan Meinerz, to interview me on the making of Becoming Kings: A Modern Man’s Path to Being Powerful, Purpose-Driven, and Fulfilled in a World that has Taught You Not to Be

We dove straight into it, similarly to how in the book I share three life defining moments. The first of those moments was my mom’s passing when I was 26. And one of the many, many lessons I learned from that time was that being vulnerable and showing emotions isn’t a negative thing. 

This was reaffirmed when writing Becoming Kings, moving through the fear of the unknown or others’ judgements — being vulnerable with you — meant I could help so many more. So when I’m asked “Why write a book? Why call it Becoming Kings?” I will continue to answer because persevering even when fearful, being vulnerable, and taking action is what we all need to know. 

My goal for this book is to show men, specifically, that it’s okay to not have all the answers. It’s okay to feel. It’s okay to be afraid. It’s okay to be wrong. And it’s okay to be fully you. My hope is that you read this book and are inspired to take action even when you don’t know how it’ll turn out. 

Move through the fear. Be vulnerable. Take action.
