Chris Niemeyer and Michael McGreevy found themselves in a predicament faced by many men; How to excel at work without neglecting their responsibilities at home? It was a balancing act that seemed to demand all or nothing. However, instead of succumbing to the notion of incompatibility between the two, they decided to challenge it.

Their paths intersected during a meet at Dan Miller's mastermind group. There, they discovered a shared struggle and a shared belief - it is possible to be a devoted family man and a successful businessman. Chris, has a keen business acumen, with a knack for setting up supportive frameworks for entrepreneurs. Meanwhile his Pacific Northwest heart cherishes family time. This makes him adept at realizing the importance of balance in a working professional's life. Similarly, Michael, a proud Buffalo native, brings extensive experience in business and an even greater dedication to his family, understands the want to excel in both walks of life. Thus, The Forge was born, a community aimed at supporting men in their dual journey of family and work.

The Forge has become a haven for men to express their struggles, share their victories, and learn from each other, all in the pursuit of a harmonious balance between family and work. The idea was sprung from seeing a need for companionship and support for men navigating the tightrope walk between work and family. Their collective mission with The Forge is to help men enjoy fulfilling relationships with their families whilst also thriving professionally.

"Often it's up to you to make the decision that changes your own life."

Ray Edwards was a copywriter and marketer at the top of his game. But in 2011, his life took an unexpected turn when he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. As the disease progressed, he found himself in constant pain, unable to walk, and even contemplating suicide. Despite trying various treatments, nothing seemed to work.

After much reflection he found himself considering that key to living well, even with his circumstances, was to change his mindset. He realized that he had the power within himself to change his mindset and live a fulfilling life despite his diagnosis. Drawing upon his skills as a persuader, Ray crafted a raw, compelling sales letter to himself, outlining the reasons to live and the purpose he could find in his life. The letter was the catalyst for him to undergo a transformative brain surgery called Deep Brain Stimulation. The surgery improved his symptoms significantly, and he was able to once again enjoy life.

Ray's story serves as a powerful testament to the importance of living with intention and finding purpose in even the most challenging situations. Intentional living can transform even the most challenging situations. Take a listen to our conversation to get a glimpse into how he guides others on their own journey to live a meaningful life aligned with their values. His passionate advocacy for intentional living makes him a truly inspiring guest.
