The "Gentle Man" Origin Story

I've been really enjoying the Marvel Comics movies with my kids in the past couple of years. One of the coolest parts of these superhero tales are the "origin stories" of the characters. You know, being bitten by a radioactive spider, getting exposed to gamma rays, etc.

I got the chance to spend a lot of time talking with my good friend Mike Sweeney from Saber Coaching recently. He's the guy who planted the words "gentle man" - with that all-important space between the words - in my head. In the video above from Mike's website, we spent a little time talking about how we both came to be Gentle Men, and what it means to each of us.

If this strikes a chord with you, I'd love it if you'd share it. I keep hearing from people "the world needs more gentle man energy", so feel free to multiply and amplify the message!!

If you want to share a Gentle Man story with me, please shoot an email to I'm collecting lots of data and stories on this topic and would love your input.

P. S. - You don't have to identify as a man to share your story!
