Hailed as “part football coach, part loving dad, and part slightly crazed drill sergeant” ROBERT KANDELL has spent the last sixteen years helping people re energize their lives and build better relationships through more honest and authentic connection.

After building a successful consulting firm in San Francisco, he then took his business acumen and co-founded OneTaste in 2004 with Nicole Daedone. Taking on the challenging task of bringing conscious sexuality to the mainstream market, Robert built the company from scratch to a high seven-figure international corporation. He left OneTaste in 2014 to start his own Consulting firm helping small businesses become marketable and profitable.

Robert is also an accomplished teacher, coach, and lecturer. He brings his enthusiasm and acumen to his weekly podcast, Tuff Love, on subjects around relationships, intimacy, communication and gender dynamics.

In this episode we talk about:

  • Rob’s story of going from an insecure, nerdy, fat Jewish kid to growing a multi 7 figure business and helping men all over the world become more confident, attractive, and fulfilled in their lives and relationships.
  • The importance of authentic male friendship.
  • The trifecta of male socialization that causes competition, frustration, and loneliness – and how to overcome them.

The difference between a master and a beginner is that the master has tried more times than the beginner has ever tried.

In suppressing your feelings you’re not allowing yourself to grow.

Quotes from this episode:

At the base of addiction is a dissatisfaction with this moment.

Without a doubt beginning to work with the mind – with the self awareness of detaching from your frames of reference and belief systems – is the most transformative tool that there is.

We need to feel worthy and deserving of love. I had so much shame and difficulty going through what I went through as a younger guy that I didn’t really feel I deserved it for a long time.
