The Art of Masculinity

Oct 24, 2019

Todays guest has had one of the most interesting lives I have come across to date. Calvin Wayman grew up on family farm in a strict fundamentalist religion that practiced polygamy—1 dad, 4 moms and 44 brothers and sisters!

From an early age, he was taught exactly what “could” or “couldn’t” do--how to act, what to think, what to desire and not desire, even down to the kind of underwear he was supposed to wear.But he always felt he was meant for more, and had a dream of designing a life on his own terms.

In 2015 at 27 years old, he took the plunge to leave everything he ever knew to pursue the life he had always dreamed of. He started selling door-to-door, facing adversity and rejection that helped mold him.

  • As rocky as his story has been, he’s been documenting the entire journey on social media to help others on their own path.(Some of the things he’s done are incredible:
  • He was an employee and started working for himself full time 
  • He was $53k in debt and documented him becoming debt free
  • He had never run a marathon before and he ran a 50 mile ultra marathon
  • He was overweight and lost over 50 pounds
  • He had a dream of one day speaking on stage with his mentors, and he’s since shared the stage with people like: Brendon Burchard, Lewis Howes, Mel Robbins, Jay Shetty, and Tom Bilyeu)

Today, he’s a proud papa and successful entrepreneur. He’s an international TEDx Speaker, and the best-selling author of Fish Out of Water.  He’s the host of a podcast carrying his name, and he stars in the YouTube show Making The Millionaire: a vlog where he’s documenting his story from polygamy to prosperity--from $53,000 in debt, to his first one million dollars. He’s been featured in 100s of magazine, television, radio, and podcast shows—including Entrepreneur Magazine, and the Dave Ramsey Show.

He’s the cofounder of the Fish Out of Water Mastermind--a program that helps people launch their entrepreneurial careers, live their dreams, and make an impact on the world.

- My life keeps changing and evolving due to my experiences
- There are several ideas that contain you when you are in the same space every time
- Sometimes, you feel that you can´t have a conversation with someone about your problems, because there is only judgement
- The people is misunderstanding the version of selfishness that I am doing
- It´s not about time itself, is about quality time
- Are you willing to leave everything you know behind just to know the truth?

"Try to put yourself in position where you are out of your element"

"We need to constantly search for the journey of our lives"

"If you don´t become the best of you, you are being selfish to yourself"
