I just wanted to tell you a little more about myself.
My name is Michael Jackson I’m the founder of . . .
Haha just fucking with you!
It’s Justin Stenstrom actually 🙂
I’m the founder of EliteManMagazine.com, the host of the Elite Man Podcast on iTunes, a best-selling author, life coach, dating coach, and speaker.
I’ve been featured on major news websites like The Huffington Post, Maxim, The Good Men Project, Lifehack, Elite Daily, and many more, and I’ve worked alongside some of the best self-help experts in the world, including guys like Robert Greene, Elliott Hulse, Bas Rutten, Sean Stephenson, John Romaniello, Dan Millman, and so many others.
I love riding motorcycles, playing ping-pong, grabbing a beer with friends, and hanging out with my beautiful and amazing girlfriend.
But my life wasn’t always this great. No, once, it was AWFUL…
There was a time (over 8 years ago) when I was extremely shy, lonely, insecure, anxious, and even depressed.
I had no confidence, no friends, no dating life, and no purpose. I was completely lost and hopeless, and I even contemplated the thought of suicide.
Finding The Self-Help Community
But after searching for an answer, I stumbled upon the Self-Help Community. From here, my life completely changed…
I listened to self-help legends like Tony Robbins, life coaches like Eckhart Tolle, and top dating coach after top dating coach like the David DeAngelo’s and the David Wygant’s of the world, and I watched incredibly powerful events like the TedX Talks.
I soaked in all of this amazing self-improvement advice and started implementing what I was learning.
It wasn’t a linear curve to success like you see in the movies though…
No, actually it was a pretty fucked up line of ups, downs, wins, losses, more losses, some wins, and back and forth until slowly over time I was able to figure things out.
Taking Care of My Inner Demons
I took care of my internal demons first, focusing on my depression, anxiety, and panic attacks.
This took me about a year or so to figure out and move past.
But it was very liberating and empowering once I did.
From here I worked on my dating and social life, pushing myself continually out of my comfort zone and doing anything possible to scare the shit out of myself.
But I loved it!
Scaring The Shit Out of Myself
Whether that was approaching 100 women in a single day (multiple times a week!), or taking a dance class where I was the only guy and there was 30 attractive women in there, or joining an acting and improv class and having to regularly perform in front of 40-50 spectators.
I constantly pushed myself out of my comfort zone socially, and challenged all my beliefs about fear…until there was no fear.
And I took this newfound confidence to another level.
It took some time (a few years of a lot of hard work in fact), but eventually I became very good socially, made a ton of friends, and took care of my dating life to the point where I had multiple beautiful women constantly sleeping with me and wanting to be my girlfriends.
I can honestly say this complete 180 lifestyle switch was more than I could have asked for, and I was so thankful and blessed that I was able to overcome so much and now have so much to be thankful for.
Helping Others Become Elite Men
And it’s for this very reason that soon after I figured out and overcame the major obstacles in my own life, that I decided I wanted to give back and help others do the same.
So I became a life coach and a dating coach and I began helping other guys who were going through the same issues as I had been, and it made me incredibly happy and fulfilled.
I helped guys get confidence, become more attractive men, and date the most beautiful women.
And I created my site Elite Man Magazine soon after this and found my passion for helping other guys better themselves.
Yes, the journey has been brutally long and incredibly fucking hard, but I am finally where I want to be in life.
And I want to help you be there too!
I’m going to be giving you some of the best advice I have on becoming the best version of yourself and living life to the absolute fullest.
I hope you’re ready…
