About Us

As two thirty-something-year-old guys who learned many lessons too late, we created The Considered Man to share our experiences with young men worldwide.

It’s never too early to prepare for the long haul. We’ve talked to some of the most successful men (and women!) in the world and found that they all have one thing in common: they define success according to their own terms.

But we also know that being thoughtful and deliberate with your life is a huge challenge; that’s where The Considered Man comes in. There are no shortcuts in life but we strive to help you become the man you want to be in the shortest time possible.

The Considered Man is a resource that aims to teach men how to be better men. We want to help you live a more fulfilled life and we believe that you can do it with thoughtfulness.

We’re not perfect. We’re not here to lecture you about what you should or shouldn’t do. Instead, we share what we learned in our journeys of becoming the men we want to be.
