“Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one.”
― Marcus Aurelius
Since 2006 Bravo / BravoPUA (real name Stephen) has helped thousands of men around the world improve their skills in Pick Up, Dating, and Life.
After a painful miscarriage, and a marriage that ended in divorce in less than a year, he was at his lowest point in his life. “I had to start dating all over again and I felt like DAMAGED GOODS, and I was never any good at dating in the first place. I suffered from extreme Social Anxiety.”
He put his career as a firearms and edged weapon instructor on hold, and decided he had to master this area of his life if he was to survive.
He started practicing everything that he had always tried to avoid. Going out to bar and clubs 3-4 nights a week, talking to everyone, especially the prettiest women that other guys were too scared to talk to. Going on more dates than ever before, so much that all the women at his favorite sushi spot all assumed he was a fashion photographer because “each time you come here you are with a woman even more beautiful than the last”!
Stephen got so good at his new found hobby that soon his friends started asking for dating advice. He began sharing his knowledge with other men on dating advice forums, out in-field, some even driving across state lines just to get a few hours with him. Eventually he met Neil Strauss, author of The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists.
Neil was so impressed with Stephen’s transformation and teaching abilities that he hired and paid him to move out to Hollywood, to coach at the Stylelife Academy, and quickly promoted him to Executive Coach in charge of conferences, bootcamps, and managing the coaching staff.
“I went from reading THE GAME, to being featured in his New York Times Best Selling follow up, Rules of The Game a year later.”
Eventually in 2010 Bravo made a decision to separate himself from the PUA world and started his own company, where he helps men level up their lives.“I never wanted to be some guy always chasing women, and after being around the PUA scene for years, it never made sense to me, all these coaches teaching guys how to PRETEND to be cool and confident so girls would like them. Saying things like “you are only as good as your last Pick Up” just went against everything I believe. I help guys actually become cool and confident so they can meet women, find someone special, build a genuine connection, and not make hooking up the center of their life”.
The Bravohood is a place to share with you things every man should know such as-
- How to dramatically improve your dating life
- How to build real connections with people that add value to your life
- How to level up your businesses
- How to be confident
- How to be a man, a leader, and a protector
- and so much more
“I have been told what I have shared with others has saved lives, helped people more than double their income, find the woman of their dreams, and create life by starting a family. I hope some of what I share can help you”
