“What happened to BravoPUA”?
I can’t call myself a PUA anymore.
Being a “Pick Up Artist” is only COOL to guys who can’t get girls.
So many self proclaimed PUAs have given the entire community a horrible name, and much of it deserved.
Technically i was never teaching guys how to be a “PUA”.
What I have done, is teach guys how to be confident and cool, how to be social, and how to convey that in a non-creepy way in an unfamiliar environment with the clock against them!
I got into Pick UP after my divorce and a miscarriage, because I had issues with DATING and WOMEN. Then I figured out that I just had issues with PEOPLE. Only later did I figure out, that I really only had issues with MYSELF.
Before I ever got into the whole crazy world of Pick Up, I was the Director of Training at a big gun range where I wrote and taught all of the advanced firearms classes. I left and started working for a private contracting company and helped teach some even more amazing stuff to some pretty bad dudes.
Once I got known in the PUA world, Neil Strauss, author of THE GAME, hired and moved me to LA to work for his company, The Stylelife Academy as the Executive Coach. For years I taught thousands of men across the world, and was featured in his best selling follow up RULES OF THE GAME.
In 2010 I started my own company, because I wanted to teach guys on a deeper and more personal level. Instead of teaching guys how to pretend to be a cool social guy and copy what someone else says, I teach them how to level up and become the best and AUTHENTIC version of themselves.
In 2016, as a natural progression of my personal growth and my teachings, I retired BravoPUA.
This allows me to share with you the things that really made me the MAN I am today, MORE than just “Pick Up”.
I constantly examine my life, looking for areas I can improve and do what it takes to master them. The Bravohood is my place to share that with you, what I think is the most important things every man should know.
It can best been summed up as-
* How to love yourself and others.
* How to protect yourself and your loved ones.
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, start the family they always dreamed about, and live the life they always wanted.
I hope you some of what I share can help you!
