Back in 2006, Alpha started his image consulting company. He chose the name ‘alpha m.’ because it was less in-your-face macho & obvious than Alpha Male and had a much better ring than King of the Jungle!

The comments in the YouTube point out that Aaron Marino of alpha m. is not an alpha male: height, high pitched voice, earrings, and the list goes on and one. He ‘gets it’ because historically an alpha male is powerful in their presence and personality. In the modern day, however, all of us can be alpha men.

Alpha is constantly thinking what it means to be a man in today’s world. The men that will get ahead in today’s world are Renaissance men- the leaders. They are good at a lot of things and strive for self improvement. These are the characteristics:

Ten Personality Traits of the Modern Day Alpha Male

  1. Pride in yourself and everything you do
  2. Self esteem – respecting yourself and not putting yourself in compromising situations
  3. Loyalty – people, obligations, and to your word
  4. Compassion – thinking about the world outside of yourself and taking action
  5. Respect – you don’t have to agree with people all the time but you can respect their opinion as well as respect them as a person and human
  6. Motivation – intrinsically and extrinsically motivated to move forward
  7. Passion – something burning deep inside
  8. Honesty – live up to your word
  9. Courage – the ability to do something that scares you
  10. Confidence – doesn’t mean you are good or proficient at everything but that’s okay

 

We don’t have to big, tall, strong, or domineering. We DO have to be in touch with who we are: strive to be better, be Renaissance men, live with passion, purpose, and confidence. Unlock the alpha male in yourself by embracing these ten principles.

Nothing is worse than buying a new super-sexy signature scent and getting home where the fragrance doesn’t smell like you thought. To avoid this, check out my fragrance-buying tips. The first tip is to take your time because it’s all about the transition. The top note is what it smells like at first, which is not how the fragrance will end up. Give it time. The mid and the base follow. The base is what it settles into, so a great rule of thumb is to spray the fragrance on you and then eat lunch or go home. Evaluate after that. The scent will smell different on different people as well. The second tip is to go to the store without applying any fragrance and pick two areas of your body to test. I recommend using a different wrist for different fragrances. After applying, let the cologne chill and smell it about 60 minutes later.
