Ryan Michler - How To Reclaim Your Masculinity And Celebrate It


Military Man to Self Sovereignty

Ryan Michler is the American former financial advisor turned influential podcaster, author, broadcaster, combat veteran, and founder of the “Order of Man”. His mission is to help men grow fully into their roles as protectors and providers for themselves, their families and their communities.

His latest book, “Sovereignty,” calls for men to fulfil their masculine potential with his thirteen Sovereign Virtues, and the “Order of Man” podcast features leading influential men like Jocko Willink, Ryan Holiday and David Goggins. In this episode of London Real, Ryan joins Brian Rose in the studio to talk about what are the important attributes for a good podcaster, toxic masculinity and rates of suicide and depression in young men.

Born and raised in a small town in Southern Oregon, Ryan Michler experienced firsthand the trials and tribulations of growing up in a world that demands resilience and determination. His early years instilled in him a sense of responsibility and a desire to help others overcome the obstacles they face, particularly men grappling with the complexities of masculinity in the 21st century.

Michler’s professional journey began in the financial sector, where he worked as a financial advisor. Despite achieving success in his career, he felt a growing disconnect between his personal mission and the corporate world. This realisation prompted him to pivot towards a more meaningful path.

In 2015, Michler founded the Order of Man podcast as a platform to address the challenges faced by men and to provide actionable insights for personal development. The podcast quickly gained traction, attracting a global audience seeking guidance on relationships, leadership, and personal growth. With a focus on interviews with successful individuals and discussions on relevant topics, Michler’s podcast became a source of inspiration for men looking to reclaim control over their lives.

Ryan Michler expanded his impact beyond the podcast by creating the Order of Man movement. This community, rooted in principles of masculinity, personal responsibility, and leadership, has grown into a thriving network of men supporting each other’s journeys. Through the Order of Man, Michler provides resources, events, and a virtual space where men can connect, learn, and grow together.

Michler has taken his message to a broader audience with the release of his new book, “Sovereignty: The Battle for the Hearts and Minds of Men.” In it, he explores the concept of sovereignty, emphasising the importance of men taking control of their lives, responsibilities, and destinies. Drawing on personal experiences and the stories of others, Michler offers a roadmap for men seeking fulfilment and purpose.

Central to Michler’s message is the idea that true masculinity involves continuous growth, leadership, and service to others. He challenges men to embrace their roles as leaders within their families, communities, and workplaces, highlighting the importance of cultivating strength, resilience, and integrity.

Ryan Michler’s impact goes beyond the digital realm; he hosts events, workshops, and retreats to facilitate face-to-face connections among men committed to personal development. His work resonates with individuals from various walks of life, offering practical advice and a supportive community to navigate the challenges of modern masculinity.

Ryan Michler’s journey from financial advisor to influential podcaster and leader of the Order of Man movement reflects his commitment to empowering men to lead purposeful and fulfilling lives. Through his podcast, book, and community, Michler has created a space where men can learn, grow, and support each other in the pursuit of personal excellence. As a beacon of inspiration and guidance, Ryan Michler continues to shape the conversation around modern masculinity, encouraging men to embrace responsibility, cultivate leadership, and forge their path to greatness.
