12 Articles Every Man Should Read
The problem with the Internet is that the barriers to entry of starting a website are virtually nothing. Which means anyone can buy a domain, get hosting, and start putting their thoughts online.
Some of the writing on the Internet is amazing. And some of it is misleading, poorly researched, or confusing.
Here are 12 articles that I think all men should read. Some of the writers focus on helping men as a career and others are entrepreneurs or bloggers whose voices have had a great impact on my life.
One of the primary goals of my writing is to change the way men view their relationships with women, with other men, and with themselves. These articles are all a great place to start.
