KYLE INGHAM is the founder and editor of The Distilled Man, a website that helps everyday guys become well-rounded gentlemen.

In this episode we talk about:

  • How Kyle’s interest in learning to grill better turned into full time business teaching man skills like making a martini, tying a bow tie, and grilling.
  • How Kyle actually creates and builds relationships by talking about taboo topics and pushing peoples’ comfort zones.
  • How learning new skills (such as mixing a martini!) can increase a man’s confidence.

Quotes from this episode:

I have a few role models that are comedians. Not because they’re funny, but because of their honesty.

My father, he had high expectations of me being good at sports and I wasn’t that good at sports…

I’ve always found that I’m way more happy when I have a sense of purpose. I’m the kind of person who needs to embody what I’m doing.
