Nick Sparks needed a break. After 8 years of coaching and training men to be amazing with women, he vanished. His much anticipated return comes full circle on this episode of the Lifestyle Arts podcast. We discuss everything from grass-fed meat and beards to maintaining sexual polarity with women, approaching them powerfully (no routines, no gimmicks), feeling sexual, building an empowering lifestyle and how to walk away from “her” with grace and power. We also discuss his remarkable new book, “As You Are” which lays out his deep and powerful philosophy soup-to-nuts and is certain to be soon acknowledged as one of the finer dating books on the market. Enjoy!
David Tian’s journey has led him from being in a Chinese gang (& being assigned the task of sexually training the new girls at the brothel) to becoming an expert in Buddhism. He has tested his limits via a wild motorcycle ride thru Vietnam (after only 6 hours of training). He practiced “pick-up” for 4 years, becoming an expert in dating and seduction only to find that the promises of the PUA lifestyle are hollow, turning everything he touched into fool’s gold. After an arduous process of introspection and powerful, masculine development, David has emerged as one of the finest dating coaches in the world – and he truly walks the walk. In this epic interview, Stephen Nash and David Tian discuss his current lifestyle, the powerful process of becoming internally validated, testing your real limits as a man, how to use social media to great effect, Tinder, the unfortunate consequences of overdosing on Viagra (migraines & more) and what lies on the other side of learning who you truly are, and what you are ultimately capable of.
“What is the best way to spend my $5K bonus?”, “How can I meet more women without becoming a pick-up artist?”, “How do I live a life of purpose?” I answer these three very different, yet very related questions on this week’s Lifestyle Arts podcast. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. What I love is how different these questions are, how they each focus on a very specific challenge many men face. Yet, each is also very connected to the other. If you would like your question answered on the weekly podcast, and stand a chance to win a free copy of my eBook “How to Get a Girlfriend”, please send it in via email (click the link in the show notes at the bottom of this page).

Scot McKay is a classic Texan. He loves women and music, drives a truck and has zero tolerance for BS. He’s also one of the finest dating coaches in the world, and it’s clear that his clients LOVE him. My favorite part of this interview was when Scot decided to take a “special” chance with a woman he was on a date with some years back. This risk made for a rather interesting evening AND showed him – very clearly – what women truly want from a man (and how what we’re often taught from an early age is worthless). It changed his life and he’s now happily married, travels the world and loves helping guys learn the truth about women and dating. This interview is one of the easiest I’ve ever done. Scot knows his stuff, and is eager to share…all I had to do was ask the right questions. You’re about to learn a lot about women, dating, what things you should focus on to improve and what is total nonsense and an utter waste of time.
3 inspiring quotes for men. Stephen shares his 3 favorite quotes and discusses the principles behind them which have inspired him and which highlight important facets of what it means to be a man in today’s world. Featuring Joseph Campbell, Mark Twain and Helen Keller, these 3 quotes point to the importance of risk, adventure and the flawed notion of “security” which we are taught from an early age. Please add your favorite quote(s) to the comments section of this post on the LSA blog. Enjoy!
Fashion & style can be baffling to many men. Most are so confused that they simply don’t apply any original thought to their appearance, thus unconsciously creating a look which works against them rather than for. In this podcast, I aim to eliminate any and all confusion by listing the specific “must haves” for your wardrobe, what to stop doing and wearing today, I share core principles to follow for creating an empowering look and discuss how and why your look influences those around you, particularly women, on an unconscious level. Your “look” might not be the most crucial thing to handle when improving your success with women and dating, but finding one that works FOR you rather than against is easy and is something every guy owes it to himself to focus on.
Sean Stephenson has faced his more than his share of challenges, but his life has become so much more than that. At birth, doctors didn’t think he would live 36 hours much less 36 years. He was told by one dating guru that “this won’t work for you” and by another “don’t let anyone tell you that success isn’t possible”. He is one of the most powerful and riveting public speakers in the world and yet his physical carriage is about 3 feet, and he lives mostly in a wheelchair. This hasn’t stopped him from meeting and marrying the woman of his dreams, from building a wildly successful business and from becoming one of the premier motivational speakers in the world. His mission is to rid the world of insecurity, and after listening to this week’s podcast, I am sure you will feel that anything is possible….because, it is.
Attraction…a topic so profoundly misunderstood that it has men resorting to foolish gimmicks and disturbing techniques designed to gain the interest of a woman. These artificial “cosmetics” of attraction might lead to an instant of interest but contain a devastating downside. Understanding the true nature of attraction is what leads to enduring, powerful & loving relationships between men and women. In this episode of the LSA Podcast, I share with you my view of this authentic “nature” of attraction and provide clear guidelines and actions to take on a regular basis to encourage these truly attractive qualities to grow & evolve within you. There are no magic bullets, but this is probably as close to one as you will ever get.
Fresh off his wedding and honeymoon, Paul Janka candidly discusses the new feeling of being married. We discuss how he met his wife (hint: cold approach), dealing with challenges in a long-term relationship (2nd hint: communication), his wedding ring, how being a bachelor prepared him for marriage & much, much more. Oh, and we talk about his recent wedding & honeymoon, and how powerful it is to say your vows surrounded by the people you love. Powerful, revealing & emotional talk by two mature men. Enjoy.
The wrong relationship…no one wants it, and yet so many people find themselves IN it…far too often. The downside to ending up with the wrong woman is massive, with potentially catastrophic results. Focusing on improving your success with women and dating might be the most important thing you do – ever. Plus, improvement in this area yields massive returns in other life areas as well. The upside is tremendous. In this week’s podcast, I cover all of these facets plus reveal the worst kept secret in the world about relationships: that all of them are difficult (sometimes), which is why it’s imperative you end up with the right woman for you.
