Dear Joe and Sue,

I saw the announcement of your wedding in the Grand Rapids Press. Congratulations! That is great news. I am sending along a copy to my parents, who will remember my talking about you when we were in college together and worked at the same bank.

You are great people and I wish you all the best!

Best Regards,
Robert "RJ" Regan

"Sounds like it was a wonderful wedding. I wish I had made the list.
Good luck."

7 Common Habits That Make People Lose Respect For You

In this video I will be talking about 7 common behaviors that I see all the time, that are causing you to lose respect, and what you can do instead so that you stop.

  • When the first thing you do is sharing your achievements.
  • Diverting your attention.

  • Instantly changing your energy levels based on who you're talking to.
  • Selling to your friends and family.
  • Lapses in honesty & integrity.

Also one quick note, this video is about psychology not any particular belief. So if you strongly disagree with anything Bill says in these upcoming clips, then they’ve been picked well :-)

The Dad Bod

By Eric Bach on T Nation

Men are gaining weight and losing muscle. Dad bods are everywhere.

What’s a dad bod? It’s the “average guy” physique that’s not particularly lean or muscular. It’s more of a hot-dog devouring, beer-drinking suburban father.

For the average population, the term “dad bod” is endearing compared to “skinny fat,” which may offend some delicate sensibilities. Some folks view the dad bod as relatable or a sign of body acceptance. But today’s average man is far from a pillar of health, and he’s probably not thrilled about it.

Sure, the changes men undergo when they become fathers aren’t all bad. But part of being a father is being a leader, and that includes your health and vitality.

Impress your date & save $200

One of my favorite things to do is cook. A good filet mignon, paired with a nice bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon doesn’t have to break the bank either.

In this video, I show you the proper way to deliver the perfect “Ruth’s Chris” experience, without breaking the bank. Impress your lady and enjoy a fine evening at home.


The lost art of writing a note.

a gentleman writes a noteHere is a "what to write", and "what not to write."
 
A Gentleman writes this when he is concerned about a friend's health.

"I have heard the news about your diagnosis. There is no reason that this disease chooses to strike one person rather than another.

You are, however, a brave, strong-willed fellow, and you have an army of friends to stick with you through the coming days.

Please know how honored I am to be one of that army.

You are in my thoughts.

Sincerely,
RJ"

A Gentleman does not write:

"I hope you will finally begin taking care of yourself - I don't want to lose you.
RJ"
