Thanks for stopping by the Masculine Evolution site. My name is Andy Fogarty and I’m the one responsible for everything around here.
My personal mission is to lead men to live superior lives of more wealth, love, and respect.
I call this the Masculine Trifecta, and I believe this is how men are designed to live.
Everything you’ll find here is designed to help you achieve the Masculine Trifecta.
I use many of my own personal experiences and client case studies to guide you on your journey.
I don’t judge. I don’t get all kumbaya, and I don’t talk theory.
This is my life’s purpose, and I take it very seriously.
Join us to jumpstart your journey to achieve the Masculine Trifecta in your life.
A few things you should know…
- I hate bananas. I mean really hate them.
- I’m another one of those Apple fanboys
- I think skinny jeans for men should die forever. Seriously.
- I’ve been married for over 10 years
- I have two beautiful daughters. One is a friggin genius. One is an evil genius. Together they will eventually rule the world. I’m convinced of this.
- I’m a paintball ninja. I will paint your ass pink, and you’ll never see me.
- I have no real credentials to do what I do, and I thank God for that every single day.
- I’m addicted to my local taco stand.
I’ve been down many paths in my life. That’s just how life is when you’re searching for your purpose.
Of course, I didn’t know I was searching for my life’s purpose. I just thought I was a “restless soul”. Whatever that means.
I always knew I was meant for something bigger than me, but I had know idea how to define it.
I noticed most of my male friends felt the same about their lives. Jumping from one opportunity to the next without any real reason other than trying to gain security.
It’s how men (the world, really) have been trained. Choose a career path that pays (or start a business), find a mate, live life.
I didn’t know then that this is fundamentally flawed. So naturally, it’s the path I took. My “career path” was, well… interesting.
- I did the corporate thing very briefly
- I was a baker
- I was a welder
- I bought a manufacturing business (WAY too young. For WAY too much money – $250,000!)
- I started an ornamental iron company
- I became a sculpture artist
- I ran several large ecommerce sites
- I became a productivity coach
- I became a online business consultant
While most of those paid well, and were generally fun. They didn’t fill the void. I always felt like something was missing. Like I wasn’t doing what I was supposed to be doing.
I had a life, but it didn’t feel like I was living it with purpose.
I love my family. They’re a huge driving force behind everything I do. Providing for them is not my purpose, but I didn’t know that then. (Providing for your family is not your life’s purpose either.)
I spent years (a decade, actually) chasing down dreams that worked for other people. Trying to make them my own because, after all, they worked for them. Why not me?
Somewhere along the line something snapped, and I lost myself while trying to become my mentors (or anyone who seemed successful, really). I worked feverishly. I ignored my family. “I’m doing this for my family” is how I justified it to myself and everyone.
It soon started to crumble. I was scared. I was lost. I was prone to sudden and severe panic attacks. My family was supportive, but they were also stressed almost to the breaking point.
I wasn’t happy, but I kept working and working and working. Working was my coping mechanism. It was also my addiction.
I could feel myself transforming into my dad (not a good thing), and I was working myself to death like my mom. I wasn’t happy, and I was quickly losing my family.
Then I found it
It’s an interesting time when a loved one dies. So many emotions flood the body and mind.
Of course sadness and grief are the two with the loudest voices. There’s much more going on behind those two that has much greater impact. That was the case when my dad died.
I learned more about my dad in the three days following his death than in our entire 29 years as father and son.
His death left me with more questions than answers. It also put me on the path I’m on today.
Life from death. God’s creative that way.
I wish I could say dad’s death was the turning point in my life. It wasn’t.
It was everything I learned about him in the following days that was the real turning point for me.
He was a different man before my time. A man I’d of liked to have known, loved, and learned from. That didn’t happen. This was a defining moment in my life.
The fact that it didn’t happen. That it would never happen. It opened my eyes to the path I was on. Not the one I imagined I was on. The path I was really on. It looked a lot like dad’s.
The man who, in the end, had nothing on the inside. He had no purpose in life. He stopped caring. Stopped giving. Stopped loving. It left him empty.
That was the turning point. That is when I devoted my life to caring. To Loving. To giving. To me. To my family. To others. To you.
That is when I found my purpose.
My Life’s Purpose is…
My life’s purpose is to guide normal, everyday guys to change the world by becoming superior men who enjoy lives of wealth, love, respect.
If you feel like your life is off track. If you feel like a drone.
If you’re scared. If you feel like less of a man.
If you don’t enjoy enough passion and respect in your life.
If your bank statements depress you.
I can help you. That’s what I do.
I will help you achieve the Masculine Trifecta of Wealth, Love, and Respect.
