The Sovereign Man Podcast
The Sovereign Man Podcast
Nicky Billou
“A real man is sovereign over his own life. He takes full responsibility for becoming a better man, and owns his own successes and failures. But he also understands the value of being a part of a band of brothers, the kind that have his back, and he can call at 3 AM if he’s stuck in a jail cell, because they’ll come and get him. He understands that just like a wolf pack, the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack.” — Nicky Billou Welcome to the Sovereign Man Podcast where we have the conversations that matter to you as a man, and inspire you to become the best version of yourself. You’ll learn from the best business, career, financial, relationship, and mans skills experts from around the world. The Sovereign Man Podcast is for motivated men like you who want to win in today’s world. We equip you to become better in every area of your life from establishing mastery over yourself, to defining your purpose, strengthening your family and your relationships, becoming a better leader, and learning man skills.

SMP EP52: Arpa & Billou -  Why Jerry West (AKA the NBA Logo) Is Wrong About His Father
Jerry West is an NBA legend who’s been immortalized in the NBA logo. He wrote an autobiography called, West By West: My Charmed, Tormented Life where he shares his perspective on being raised by his imperfect father. Here at the Sovereign Man, we believe that father’s, even many of the imperfect one’s, deserve some credit in the legacy of the their children. Jerry West’s performance as an athlete suggests the his father’s methods, though imperfect, contributed to Jerry’s fire and immense success as an athlete and role model.

EP47: Patrick Francey - What Is Success To A Man?
“Most men don’t know what their values are and therefore they have trouble standing for something. We get to choose who we are as men, we get to choose who we are as business owners and in the context of life.” Patrick Francey is the founder of the Real Estate Investment Network (REIN). For the last 30 years, he’s helped thousands of Canadians create sovereignty and financial freedom for themselves and their families through real estate investing. 200000 people have taken the courses offered by REIN. Patrick is a husband, father, entrepreneur, and intellectual. One of his values is ‘to be a contribution’. Patrick believes that a man’s values are at the core of his success. Takeaways: 1. Your life is a reflection of the decisions you make or the decisions you don’t make. 2. Integrity is who you are when no one’s looking. 3. Define what it means to you to be a successful man. Make it tangible.   Also in this episode: Book, 'Tribes' by Seth Godin. https://www.amazon.ca/Tribes-We-Need-You-Lead/dp/1491514736   Book.
