The 'dance of attraction' is a common theme. So how are dancing and attraction integrally related, anyway? It's important to get down to the bottom of this because women LOVE dancing, but most of us as men not so much. Why is that? Well, given how much we are missing out on by being 'wallflowers', I needed the right expert co-host for this all-important discussion. My returning guest Jennifer Rhodes is not only a dance enthusiast, she's a world traveler, having recently spent time enjoying the Tango culture of Argentina. She has great stories to tell as she articulates exactly what it is about dancing that's so seductive, and why you as a man should absolutely go for it. So how much allure does a man have who will dance with women? What is it about dancing in particular that wakes up and ignites a woman's feminine nature? Is it as powerfully attractive as, say, being funny or playing the guitar? Do women really 'dance like nobody is watching'? And once and for all...is dancing really a metaphor for sex? Should we be worried if some guy who is an amazing dancer 'cuts in' with our girlfriend? Practically speaking, if a man wants to finally get up and go dancing with women, where does he start? Which styles of dancing are best...salsa, bachata, tango, line dancing, swing, ballroom? What about kizomba? And good grief...how is anybody supposed to go dancing at all while COVID is still going on? Find more about Dr. Jennie and talk to me free for 25-minutes about upleveling your success with women, all at https://mountaintoppodcast.com

It seems like we've gotten to the point nowadays where it's almost dangerous to disagree with someone, especially online. Despite more access to information than ever before, people in general decide what they believe, find their 'tribe' and conclude everyone else is just straight-up wrong. If you find yourself on the other side of the opinion spectrum, you're at best excluded from the conversation, and at worst insulted or even 'canceled' altogether. As a result, more and more people are consorting only with like-minded folks and keeping quiet around everyone else. Obviously, this has created a deeply divisive social environment that tests the boundaries of free speech itself. The very first amendment to The Constitution is about free speech for good reason, so we've got to do something about the current state of communications between fellow citizens...right? I mean, on top of all the idealistic reasons why we should rediscover how to handle our differences, there's the purely logistical matter of it being unreasonable to expect we'll never again encounter anyone with a different viewpoint. Isn't there any other means by which to discern one's character as a human being than who they vote for? What's more, many guys are reporting that women in particular are harder to get along with than ever for us as men. In this episode, My guest Nick Reed and I cover how to navigate all of the sometimes mine-laden paths to clearer, more civil and yes...more productive discussions with people we don't necessarily agree with. If, however, you can agree it's time to get the right woman in your life, I'm right there with you. Let's talk about a plan to make that happen for you.

His name is Dr. Peter McGraw, and he's indeed quick on the draw. He has to be, considering he's quite literally a professor specializing in the psychology of humor, and the director of the Humor Research Lab (aka HuRL) at University of Colorado at Boulder. By now we all know how making women laugh is a legitmate superpower when it comes to charming and attracting them. And yes, you can get the job done by helping women have fun, but there's something about a man who knows how to craft legit humor that absolutely mesmerizes them. Yet, most of us can count on one hand the number of men we know who have developed such a skill and have incorporated it to the level of 'unconscious competence'. Why is that? Well, for starters, the idea of what 'funny' really is and how it works is completely esoteric to most people. It's as if you either get it or you don't. Well, upon listening to this remarkably practical (and yes, funny) episode, the joke will no longer be on you. Listen as Peter and I equip you with real-world knowledge and action steps to transform you into a virtual laugh factory in your own right. And worry not...this isn't about becoming some kind of performing puppet or dancing monkey. You're about to gain the foundation to being irresistibly fun to women while subcommunicating all the right messages about who you are as a masculine man who exudes personal power. Do you have the right woman in your life yet? If not, that's indeed no joke. My coaching program combines both strategic and tactical elements to deliver an objective result--living the dream with the kind of woman you've always known you deserve.

Over the past year, COVID has wrought widespread social isolation and loneliness. We've sheltered in place and looked to social media and dating apps for potential connection with others. But that's at best an electronic substitute for real, human interaction, of course. Pete Bombaci is a human connection expert and head of the GenWell Project, a global connection movement based in Toronto. His mission is to inspire us to take action toward more and better face-to-face communication. Pete claims that real, live human connection is at least as important to our overall health as eating right or going to the gym. Yet, we as men tend to blow off our need for human interaction, as if we're too macho for that sort of thing. Well, it's time to get real with ourselves, as well as with the women who want so much for us to be there and present for them. Along the way, we discuss why people in big cities often feel most isolated, the sneaky and unexpected effects of COVID social isolation, and the surprising way that less is sometimes more in the midst of all this. But is it that our 'meet women' muscles have truly atrophied throughout this past year, or are we simply in the throes of wholesale societal change...be it for better or worse? No matter what, you can get yourself back into 'meet women' shape and establish your own 'new normal'. It all starts with a free 25-minute phone call with me personally that you can schedule at https://mountaintoppodcast.com

As goes the bedroom, so goes the bedroom...at least that's what my guest on this episode believes. Delora Guignon is the founder of Mindsex Mastery, and she says the very same sexual energy that propels the women in your life to multiple orgasms is what causes certain men to be wildly successful financially and reach the pinnacle of their career. In this fast-paced and often riotously entertaining episode, you'll discover how both 'get rich quick' and 'get laid quick' usually don't work, and why the pickup artist movement had such a hard time figuring that out. Meanwhile, what exactly does this all-conquering sexual energy look like? What are the practical features of it? Do all those angry political people on Twitter just need to get laid? Why is it Delora can tell who's having great sex and who isn't just by asking them three questions? Contrary to popular belief, why are so many rich guys so lonely? How does the compliance vs. willingness factor enter into all of this? And what are the practical steps to mastering our sexual energy in a way that translates to financial and business success? Could it be possible that all of this is once again tied to self-worth and self-image? And wait a minute...what if you encounter a woman who's ravenously sexy to you, but whose sexual energy is somewhat...off? What do you do? Get what you want in 2021, including the right woman in your life. It's all there for you, starting with a free 25-minute call with me to discuss your plan of action.

The American Dream is often thought of as being all about achieving, acquiring and outperforming. Bigger, faster, better, more, more more. Indeed, when John D. Rockefeller was once asked how much money is enough, his answer was, 'just a little more'. My guest this time is Robert Althuis, author of Never Enoughitis, who has long since recognized how all of this is really just one big psychological trap. His mission is to redirect us from the treadmill of endless expectations regarding achievement and acquisitions and on to something much more fulfilling. Now, it may be true that you may have already risen above the need for '80s style 'conspicuous consumption' or keeping up with the Joneses. But that's only the tip of the iceberg. Many of us grew up with parents who pushed us to succeed, and 2nd place or a B+ wasn't an option. Meanwhile, in the midst of the ratrace, we never actually get to do what we really want. We grow up never satisfied, even though we keep trying harder and harder. Are we doomed to this cycle of outlandish expectations and unreasonable self-judgment? What is the better, more reasonable option, and why should we even bother to investigate such a different path? Well, the raw truth is your health, relationships, self-worth and even your very happiness itself are all at stake...all at a time in history where the stakes couldn't be higher. What do you give the man who has everything? How about his LIFE back. If this is indeed the time in your history to refocus on what's truly important to you, and find the right woman to share it all with, schedule your 'results in advance' call with me for free at https://mountaintoppodcast.com

Have you noticed how edgy and snippy people in general have been lately? There has been a lot of fear and turmoil over the past nine months or so, culminating in a particularly rough couple of weeks, and it has begun to wear on even the most stoic among us as men. So what in the world are we to do about that? And what if we found ourselves angry way too often even before 2020 descended upon us? Well, my guest Dr. Ron Potter-Efron is in my estimation the world's foremost expert on the topic of anger management. He claims anger is one of the top reasons why men go to a therapist, in stark contrast to the typical reasons why women do. It's no joke how many men seem to go through life fuming and snarling over just about any and everything that happens, even if it's something minor. We instinctively know such a mental state is intrinsically unattractive to women, yet we slip into fury and lose our temper anyway. What's up with that? And what's the difference between righteous indignation and the kind of anger that classifies as 'toxic'? What are the classic situations that really anger us as men, and how can we see them coming and address them properly? What is the dangerous relationship between anger and disgust? And what's the deal with anger due to hate? How do shame and guilt affect how angry we get? Why do we as men love angry music so much? Most of all, what's the one question we must always ask whenever we're angry? Never has there been a more timely discussion on this show, and never one with more potentially imminent life-changing possibilities. Now you are guaranteed results in advance when you talk to me personally for 25-minutes. Reserve your time with me at https://mountaintoppodcast.com

Co-Host Zach Schleien (https://mountaintoppodcast.com/filteroff) My guest is the founder of an innovative new app that enables video speed dating. That means there's nobody better to join me for an all-important conversation on how to get past the dating frustrations of 2020 and on to the bold new world of 2021. In proper fashion, we kick it all off with a post mortem on 2020 dating and relating, including some eyebrow raising opinions with regard to what people out there have really been thinking and doing for the last year. But then it's on to the here and now. Will COVID continue to loom large well into this year? Will the vaccine change anything? Whether or not that's the case, will people's attitudes (and actions) change regardless? What is the idea behind video speed dating, and how is it different and more effective than the much-maligned OG version? Are there really benefits of meeting women over video as opposed to real-life, or is that just an excuse? Does this new paradigm stand any chance of replacing the dreaded dating apps? What are the killer strategies for early adopters of video dating? What are the chances we'll face yet another string of hardcore rejection by embracing video speed dating? And most of all, as the pandemic rages what do we do if we actually match up with real women online? Is it advisable to meet in real life, or should we still shelter in place and keep it virtual? Stay tuned for surprising and at times hilarious answers to these questions and more. Meanwhile, my new pledge to you is you'll receive bona-fide 'results in advance' when you talk to me free for 25-minutes. Get on my calendar at https://mountaintoppodcast.com

Well, two podcasts dropping on two holidays in a row means it's a moral imperative to have Emily back on again, especially since 2020 has finally drawn to a close and it's time to address 2021. What will the 'new normal' look like insofar as dating and relationships go? How soon until we can actually get there? What unexpected surprises might be in store for all of us, whether we're currently in a relationship or looking forward to getting into one? What can be observed from past pandemics and applied to the current dating situation? What are the perhaps untold truths about how men and women have been relating together all along for the last nine months? And what about some real-world strategies for making damn skippy sure 2021 is far better than 2020? How much of that is really within our control, anyway? Are we really going to be doomed to endless suggestions for 'Zoom dating'? Where can our source of optimism come from in a world where many believe it's as bad as it gets and won't get better anytime soon? Well, if you're going to favor an optimistic viewpoint, you're going to need a plan to bounce back. You don't have to go it alone. Go to https://mountaintoppodcast.com and start the year off right by scheduling a free 25-minute call with me to set that plan in motion.
