Hi there, My name is Alf Herigstad, thanks for checking out my Patreon page. 

I am a lifelong entrepreneur in four different industries; Construction, fitness, transportation, real estate, and now…as host of the Being A Better Man podcast. I am a former boxer, a Veteran of the Army, a farmer, a reality TV personality in Norway, a father of three and grandfather of nine. All of my life experience has culminated into a driving passion to now share the things I have learned with the rest of the world, particularly with other men. My primary message; be a better man today, than you were yesterday….and then keep doing that every day until you die.

Making this podcast was a bit of an experiment…in the beginning,  I launched it January 22nd, 2016, it has turned out to be so much more. Even better, I’ve heard from a lot of people who really love it. I’ve gotten letters from people as young as 16 and as old as 52 telling me that the show has helped them some way in their life. That is SO awesome! That is exactly why I’m doing this, to help guys make the choice to be a better man today than they were yesterday.

I decided I want to keep making this happen, because…When a bunch of guys decide to be better men something happens; the world becomes a better place.

There are a few ways I can continue to make this happen. One would be to join a podcast network and lose some control over how things are done. Another would be to sell advertising on the show, you know...commercials.
 
But I don’t really want to do either of those. People seem to like that the episodes are short and contained, to the point, not a lot of extra jibber-jabber, and I like that too. I don't want to mess that up with a bunch of extra stuff.  Though I may have to in the short term, we'll see.

Right now it's just me and you guys, a community of listeners, figuring this thing out together. I’d like to keep it that way for as long as I can.

The bottom line is, I've been running this out of pocket since I started…I do actually have to eat, and pay bills and stuff, just like you, plus the expenses of producing the show.  I’m hoping to figure out a way to NOT have to spend all my time working somewhere else…because then the show suffers. That’s why we are here.

If you enjoy the show, if you get value out of it and believe the world needs it, I hope you'll contribute. I want to be a bright spot in your day, three times a week, and hope you'll find enough value in that to support Being A Better Man. Heck…if I have more time I will be able to make it more than three a week.

I’ve tried to put together some fun extras for those of you that do decide to lend a hand. You can check them out over on the right.  They will probably change and get more stuff added to them as time goes on, we are just getting started.

So if you haven’t, give the show a listen. If you like it, tell your friends about it. And if you can, please consider donating to help keep it going.

Thank you,
Alf Herigstad
