Most men have crippling troubles around sex, money, and motivation that they never get fixed in their lifetime, driving them into deep depression and suffering in silence and seclusion.
In 3 Days, Conquer Your Anxieties Around Women, Wealth, and Emotional Well-Being, While Uniting With a Community of Brothers Committed To Creating A Life On Your Own Terms
Spend The Weekend With Some Of The World’s Most Sought After Experts In Relationships, Sex, Friendships, And Life
Do you wish you had a sex life that you're proud of with the quantity and quality of sex that makes you happy? Do you wake up every morning without the energy and drive to do the work that you love? Does money bring you anxiety and worry? Are you constantly concerned with paying bills and managing expenses? Do you wish you had a group of friends that you can count on no matter what? Do you ever feel lonely? If you were to disappear from the world, would anyone care? Do you feel you are hiding who you really are from the world just to make everyone else happy? If your answer to any of these questions is Yes, then this might be the most important letter you'll ever read in your life.
I'm Mike Hrostoski, The Men's Coach.
It's been 2 years since I quit my six figure corporate job and decided to live life on my own terms.
I’ve since become a life coach teaching high performing men who run six and seven figure businesses how to live life to the fullest, despite all their traditional success.
I've helped them have better sex, make more money, have deeper relationships with women, and cultivate friendships they hadn’t experienced in decades of living.These guys who seemingly have everything together on the outside open up to me on a regular basis. Because the real truth is: they don’t have everything together.And I didn’t either.
You See, I Wasn't Happy At All...
I remember when I was 30. I had just finished my MBA. I was working in a highly competitive human resources leadership development program at one of the world’s largest healthcare companies. And I wasn't happy. At all.
Everything I had done up to that point in my life was supposed to make me happy, fulfilled, and feel "successful"... but I was depressed.
I had trouble maintaining fulfilling relationships with women, crushing my self esteem because society makes us feel success with women determines your worth as a man.
I had no idea what I was doing in the bedroom. And I still had a great deal of sexual shame from my upbringing.
I struggled to express my feelings to the people I loved the most. Instead I numbed my pain with drugs and alcohol.
Despite having an active social life, I never felt like I had friends who truly had my back no matter what.
Worst of all… I felt alone. Really alone. Like if I had died, the few people who would show up at my funeral would forget about me in just a few days.
I didn’t know what happiness felt like anymore.
What it felt like to be alive.
What it was like to even feel.
I didn't know what to do, or where to go.
I read books. I listened to podcasts. I watched seminars.
But nothing was getting better. I was only consuming information, never applying it to my actual life.
I needed to get out and live.
I Remember Those Days When...
I used to read "pickup" material that really screwed up my views on women. This eventually ruined several relationships, and made it a lot harder for me to even have a healthy relationship with a woman.
I consumed endless amounts of information on how to have good sex and satisfy a woman, only to get overwhelmed and anxious when actually having sex. This led to sexual dysfunction, which killed my self esteem and made me feel like less of a man. It was a depressing and distressing downward spiral that intensified every time I had the chance to have sex and perform in the bedroom.
I would hang out with "friends" on weekends only to end up getting drunk, bitching about life, and ending the night feeling unfulfilled. If I had gotten into a serious accident, very few of my "friends" would have even been around to help me.
I went to sleep every night feeling like there was more to life, only to wake up the next morning and do the same thing over again. This drew me even deeper into my self-pity and intense feelings of indifference for being alive.
I was jealous of anyone who had what I thought I wanted. A hot girlfriend, a nice car, financial success. I was a bonafide hater. Really. If hating were a sport, I would have held Olympic records.
But Then It All Changed In One Weekend...
And I'm not even exaggerating.
In 2011 I went to Chris Guillebeau’s World Domination Summit. This weekend conference changed my life forever.
Looking back, I don’t even know what the hell I was doing there.
I wasn’t an entrepreneur. I was still working a job I hated. I had no semblance of freedom in my life.
But for some reason I felt called to attend. I remember looking at my computer screen, seeing the website and thinking, “I have no idea why, but I need to be here.”
So, on a whim, I purchased my ticket. I booked my hotel, bought my ticket to Portland, and asked for time off from work.
I was ready to go, still unsure of what I was even getting myself into.
I got to Portland. I checked into my hotel. I met some new friends. I even went skydiving for the first time in my life, with 40 of the conference attendees. I was riding high.
But before the conference could begin, I got a phone call at 3am.
My mom passed away unexpectedly in her sleep. The conference was set to start in 5 hours.
In that moment, I woke up to my life. It was as if I’d been sleepwalking until that moment. And when the news hit me, I finally woke up.
As I walked into the conference space, I found myself, for the first time ever, in a room with 500 other people who also wanted more from life. It felt like home.
I was among complete strangers, yet I finally felt understood. And most of them were much further along on their journey than I was on mine. Little did I know how important that would turn out to be.
The weekend was like drinking liquid inspiration from a firehose.
The speakers openly shared their stories of how they created their remarkable lives on their own terms.
The conference attendees were some of the most courageous people I’d ever met.
I formed new friendships. I connected with amazingly successful people. I learned things, both from the speakers and the death of my mother, that would jumpstart my life.
Because of this weekend, I went from being a mildly depressed 30 year old man to the life-loving and fulfilled person I am today.
Immediately following the conference, I started my blog. Six months later I left my corporate job and sold everything that I owned. I set out to travel the world and I've been doing so for the past two years straight. And I’ve been building my business ever since while studying and living with some of the world's greatest teachers.
As I Traveled All Over The World, I Saw The Two Biggest Problems That Men Face...
1) Men don’t have deep connections with other men.
Over the past two years, I’ve consistently heard a common complaint from men:
They don’t have any real friends.
And the more work a man has done on himself, in an effort to better his life, the fewer friends he has.
In fact, the more successful a man is, the more likely it is that he feels lonely.
Many of these men share their desire to have friends like they had in college, in their fraternity, or at their first job.
They’re tired of sacrificing their needs for unfulfilling friendships. They’re tired of keeping friends around who don’t have their back. They’re tired of hiding their true selves from their friends, feeling like they always have to impress people.
And at their core, all they truly want is a group of men they can count on.The number one reason why they don’t have this is because...
2) Men are afraid to ask for help.
In my coaching practice and friendships with amazing men, I hear this seven word phrase all the time:
“I’ve never told that to anybody before.”
When we were younger, we were taught that “boys don’t cry.” Maybe we were even ridiculed by our peers or father when we expressed emotion.
As a teenager, the worst thing we could possibly hear from our friends was, “Stop being a pussy.”As adults, we’re told to “man up," communicating to us that we’re less of a man for being vulnerable and telling people how we actually feel.
With all of this social programming, life gets more and more difficult. The pressure mounts. And ultimately we feel like we’re carrying the weight of the world on our shoulders.But your life doesn’t have to be this way.
What Would It Be Like to Have It All Figured Out?
- Imagine having a community of brothers who have your back when nothing is going your way with money, health, and relationships
Imagine having men in your life who support you through the best and worst of times, whether it be with your business, family, or physical well-being
Imagine being capable of creating the life you want on your own terms, consistently acting in the face of fear without any panic
Imagine having real confidence that attracts amazing women into your life without rehearsed pickup lines
Imagine having the best sex of your life no matter what your age or experience level, getting rid of the anxieties and worries you have, and being fully confident in your abilities
Imagine having excitement and inspiration coursing through your veins each morning, because you are completely fulfilled with your life’s work
- Imagine simply feeling alive again... or perhaps... for the very first time.
Some Men Who Have Worked With Me Have Said...
Mike lives his life to the fullest every day and empowers others to do the same. Without judgment — both by not judging others and not caring what other people think — he inspires by doing. Mike lives and breathes what he coaches and I leave a better person every time we connect. Mike both listens and teaches and I’m grateful to call him a friend.
Jimmy Tomczak, Founder at Nothing Says
Mike has the uncanny ability to be unbelievably direct with his feedback, while at the same time, remaining loving, open and supportive. Whether you are ready to hear what he has to say is another story, though it usually has an alarming degree of truth—and probably a few ways to get you unstuck and thriving. Whenever we speak, I feel like I’m getting the “real” him—not a performance or a facade. It’s who he is, warts and all: unapologetic, courageous, and bold. I’ve definitely become a better person because of our relationship.
Nathan Agin, Owner at Virtual Nathan and Founder at Nonstop Awesomeness
You know the kind of man you meet and immediately know is the real deal? The kind of man who doesn’t hesitate to treat a perfect stranger with complete appreciation and respect, because that’s what he feels for himself? The kind of man you see across the room, and for some reason you just feel drawn to connect with?
Well, that’s Mike.
It has been my biggest challenge as a modern man to move through life with an open mind and an open heart. But life has a funny way of turning our biggest challenges into our biggest rewards. Every time I have ever shared a moment with Mike, he has helped me move toward openness. The rewards have been among the greatest in my life, and they have not stopped flowing to this day.
If you are reading this and even considering working with Mike, I suspect there is a little voice tugging at you from within. Please, please listen to that voice.
Shogo Garcia, Founder at The Social Generation
Introducing The Conference For Men --Since October, I’ve been working with my core team on creating the ultimate conference experience for men.
April 25-27, 2014 in San Diego, CA
The only conference that focuses directly on men’s core issues. A conference that prioritizes your transformation over information.We’re designing an experience unlike any other. It starts with 50 men on the opening Friday at the VIP Lunch. It comes full circle with 300 men at the closing party on Sunday.
Friday, April 25, 2014Friday afternoon will begin with a VIP lunch for the first 50 men to purchase their tickets. You’ll get more quality time with your group leader and the guys in your group. You’ll also get to meet the other speakers and leaders. Quality time with those minds alone is worth your admission to the conference.
Friday evening we will officially kick off the conference with an opening party designed to faciliate open and authentic communication. You'll walk away feeling deep connection with the other men even before the official programming starts.
Saturday, April 26, 2014Saturday morning we’ll launch into the conference, with a keynote speech by Michaela Boehm, the only counselor trained and authorized by David Deida.
After the keynote speech, we’ll break out into groups. These groups will be your community of brothers for the weekend. These groups are led by men who’ve done the work, who’ve experienced the pain and overcome it triumphantly.
In your groups, you’ll begin doing the work in your life. Through exercises in authentic relating and deep coaching, we’ll uncover the things that are holding you back and the beliefs that are preventing you from living the life you want. Such as…
- I feel like I have to do all of this on my own
- I have too many responsibilities
- All women are crazy
- I’m not good looking enough
- I’m hopeless with women
- I don’t know where to start
- I don’t have enough resources
- I can't figure out what I really want
Sunday, April 27, 2014That’s why Sunday is the perfect day to focus on how to show up in the world as your best self, in your relationships, your work, your spiritual life, and in your sex life. Sunday has 3 panel interviews with men and women on sex and communication. You’ll have the chance to ask some of the most amazing women in the world the questions you’ve always wanted to ask them.
You’ll also hear from two men’s panels: a group of young men committed to doing this work in their life and a group of middle-aged men, who have been doing this work for decades.
You’ll get answers to questions like:
- What does it mean to be a man?
- I’m too inexperienced. How do I keep this from holding me back?
- What's the secret to making sure marriage makes my sex life better instead of diminishing it?
- Once you’re an adult, life seems to be just about work. How do you still have fun?
- How do I attract women who are out of my league?
- I haven’t had very many sexual partners. Can I still have amazing sex?
- My girlfriend/wife/partner is moody all the time. How do I handle that?
There are some people who we’ve spent so little time with, but they’ve had a huge impact in our lives. Do you know the type? The people who you just seem to form real, meaningful connections with almost immediately?
The after-party is going to give you that.
It’ll be an entire night of celebrating with new friends whom you feel like you’ve known your whole life. At the party, you’ll:
- Solidify new friendships that will last you a lifetime and leave you with the confidence of having a community of brothers who you can really call “friends"
- Experience what it’s like to have a meaningful and epic night, AND how you can enjoy similar nights like these for the rest of your life
- Finish the night with a story that you’ll be telling over and over again
- Feel what it’s like to go from sleepwalking through your life to actually being alive
Plus… there’s going to be a BIG surprise, almost a true “test” of how much you’ve changed over the weekend that you won’t want to miss. You’ll have some of the best men in the world around you to support you in this life-changing experience.
Let's Talk About Money
I’m going to be upfront with you. I’m undercharging for this conference.
This conference should be far more expensive, especially with the caliber of work that we’ll be doing.
I've carefully selected the speakers and group leaders. They are hand picked and sought after experts in their fields.
My original plan was to do this conference once every year. Now I’m not even sure if I’ll EVER do this conference again. That’s why I’m really pouring my heart and soul into making it THE men's personal development event to go to in 2014. I really believe in this work. I believe in the work so much that I’ve invested nearly $40,000 in to my own personal development work in the last two years alone.
And for that reason, I’m not about huge profit margins. I'm not doing this for the money. I'm doing this because I know this is what we need as men. I’m doing this so that you can have the type of life and the relationships you really want.
Based on what my colleagues have told me, I should be charging at least $2000 for this weekend.
But you won’t pay that.
To try and learn everything on your own, you’d spend decades. You’d spend years just trying to find the best resources. But in a single weekend, we’ll get you 80% of the way there.
To work with me one-on-one for a weekend, you’d pay $5,000.
To work with the all of the experts one-on-one who are here to work with, you’d pay tens of thousands of dollars.
To go to other conferences that don't touch anything as deep as what'll be covered here, you’d spend more money.
It's Not Just 3 Days Of Change, But Becoming The Man That You Know You Are Destined To Be
And none of these other options allow you to connect with 300 other men doing the work that you’ll be doing. These are men and mentors you’ll be able to bring your deepest, darkest issues to, without being judged for it.
On top of that, you’ll be added to an exclusive Facebook group to stay in contact with your community of brothers from all over the world. Most of the the group leaders and speakers will also be a part of this group. This will be your space to stay accountable, ask more questions, and keep in touch after the conference has ended.
The Cost For The Conference For Men Is...
If you were to pay for intensive one-on-one coaching programs with the speakers and group leaders, you’d pay out tens of thousands of dollars.
If you were to spend your life trying to figure it out on your own means, through therapy and books, you’d spend thousands upon thousands of dollars, and years of your life would pass you by as you searched.
This is the first Conference For Men. And because of that, you won’t pay the tens of thousands of dollars you’d have to spend for all of the one-on-one attention with the speakers and group leaders. You won’t pay the $40,000 I’ve invested into myself. You won’t even pay half that.
You won't pay $5000, you won’t pay $2500.
This Conference Will Change Your Life Forever...
Or I'll Give You All Your Money Back
This weekend will change your life. I can promise you that with no hesitation. This work is my heart and soul.
You'll come out confident in knowing where you'll be taking your sex life, your relationships, and your friendships for the rest of your life, after only 3 days together.
I'm confident you’ll be satisfied. Here's how confident I am: I invite you to come entirely risk free.
Come listen to all of the speakers. Participate in all of the coaching exercises and authentic relating, make amazing friends, and come to the after party and have the most amazing time of your life.
After all of that, if you don't think the conference was worth the low cost, after doing ALL of the work, just tell me at the after party. I’ll personally refund your money, while we talk about what I could have done to serve you better.
All I ask from you is that you look me in the eye and tell me that you participated in all the sessions, showed up fully, and did not get what you came for. And then tell me what I could have done differently. If you do this, I'll fully refund your money.
Note: If you do not attend all of the workshops or sessions, you forfeit your right to claim this guarantee.
But I KNOW with absolute certainty, that the time in the workshops, lectures, breakout sessions, meals, and after party will change your life. I’m so sure of this that I’m willing to take on all of the risk.
Now...There Are A Few Things I Want You To Keep In Mind...
This is the first time we're running this conference, and it's been a TON of work. Don't get me wrong, I love the process of growing as an entrepreneur, and can't wait to see you there.
But the amount of work required is really taxing, and we will only be able to run it once a year, if we decide to and have the energy to do it again next year. If not, this may be the only one.
There hasn't been any other conference like this ever in the past, and there aren't any others out there right now.
I might be biased, but I think it's true when I say there's nowhere else to experience a conference like this.
This is why I’ve spent months of hard work and long nights building such an important event from scratch.
Imagine what it would be like to be one of the 300 men who walk out of the conference having the highest sense of esteem and confidence in your sex life, relationships, professional life, and life in general. Imagine knowing where your life is going, and having it completely in control.
Don't Just Listen To Me...Take It From The Men Who Have Worked With Me...
I’m truly grateful to have worked with Mike this year. I launched my blog, improved my relationships, got contacted by 10 prospective employers, negotiated a higher salary, and got my business moving again, all while raising my one year old son. Mike is a gifted coach with a knack for identifying hidden snags and he loves to over-deliver.
Matt Parrett, Systems Engineer at Broken Bulb Studios and Creator at MattParrett.com
Since meeting him at a private retreat in Mexico two years ago, Mike has influenced me to focus on and improve my relationship with myself and my relationships with those around me more than anyone I know. On top of that, he is an absolute master at reframing and helping you see the good in situations you might not otherwise see.
Karol Gajda, Creator at Gajda.com
Mike’s coaching took me from a place of uncertainty to massive confidence. His empowering presence provided me the strength to move past the fear of going after the opportunities I most wanted — both in my professional and intimate relationships. I had multiple breakthroughs within those relationships which enabled me to have one of the most transformational years of my life so far. This ultimately led to having the best relationship ever with the person that truly matters most in life — myself.

Here's Everything You Can Expect: The Game Plan For The Conference For Men
We're going to spend three days together working on the most important, but often neglected parts of our lives, and finally figure them out. Sex, money, purpose, fulfillment, relationships, and friendships.
Our guest speakers, panel experts, and group leaders will come together to support you in becoming the man you want to be, getting these areas of your life sorted out in the most life-changing weekend of your life.
You'll leave the weekend as a man who is grounded in his confidence across the most important domains of life.
The venue, the speakers, the experts, the group leaders and everything that went into putting together this conference wasn't cheap, but I had to do it because there really is no other conference like this out there.
One that provides the actual expertise and support that men need, but no one has offered so far.
I tried my best to make it as affordable as possible for you, and to be honest, it really is for everything I'm SURE you'll be getting out of it.
I want to bring to you the best of coaching, advice, and support that would otherwise cost you tens thousands of dollars if you decided to put the time and money into it.And I'm even putting my neck on the line with my full money-back guarantee.
How To Know If This Is For You
Trust your instincts and your heart. That’s how I’ve made my biggest decisions for the past two years and it’s served me very well.
They say we only use about 10% of the intelligence we have in our brains. I believe that’s because the other 90% lies in our bodies.
I know you can feel how badly you want your life to be in control.
Imagine how it will feel to have everything that is giving you anxiety and worry totally figured out.
Imagine finally having that feeling of control. Great sex, beautiful women, supportive friends, a clear sense of purpose, and waking up everyday happy and excited.
Imagine walking back into your life feeling a foot taller with the backing of an army of 300 men.
It's Time To Step Up, Reserve Your Spot, And Become The Man You Were Born To Be
Thanks for reading this far. I know it was a lot to read, but since this will be a brand new event I wanted to make sure that I clearly communicated how important this conference will be for you.
I can't wait to see you there.
PS - How important is your life to you? How important is control to you? This conference may never happen again. If it does, it will be at least a year away. That's another year of underutilized potential and mediocre living. The price is right, and will probably go up next year.
My guarantee is ironclad. If you don’t feel it was worth your investment, then just let me know at the after party. I'm here to serve you.
Imagine how happy you'd be if you were unstuck?
What will happen to your life in a year from now if you don't come to the conference?
Will your life still be the same? Same sex, same friends, same lack of direction? Still worrying about money and not having a good reason for waking up in the morning?
Will your life be worse because you’re on a downward spiral already? Will your relationships get worse, friendships fade away, and every day feel like more of a drag than the last?
I really don't want that to happen to you. And I know you don’t want it to either.
"Frequently Asked Questions"
What makes this conference different from other personal development conferences?
Most personal development conferences are about speakers providing you information and inspiration in their life stories. And that’s great, so long as you have the structure to implement what they’ve told you into your life after the conference has ended.
At The Conference For Men, you get both information and implementation. This conference is about experience and growth, transformation not information. In these other conferences, the speakers describe their journey and tell you about all the work they’ve done. At The Conference For Men, you’ll be doing this work you only ever hear about.
Are we just going to listen to speakers the whole time? What are we going to do?
No, many of the men speaking will also be the conference’s group leaders. That’s right, group leaders. You’ll be put in a group of 20-25 men, and you’ll have a leader there for support. Our leaders are amazing men. That’s why we’ve asked them to speak. They’ve done the work they’re going to support you in doing. You won’t be alone, because your group and group leader will serve as your main line of support during your weekend.
This support is vital, because we’ll be doing a lot of heavy lifting in our lives. Again, this conference is experiential. You will be getting things done. You’ll be confronting your fears and shame head on. And not only will you walk away a man with more integrity and purpose, you’ll walk away with a group of amazing men in your corner and all the tools to continue taking action in your life.
Wait, there are women speaking? I thought this was The Conference For Men?
A large part of the conference is learning how to honestly, openly, and authentically relate with women. So why not get the information directly from the source? We’ve assembled an amazing group of women who will share openly from their years of practice. The one and only Michaela Boehm will deliver our keynote on Saturday morning and we will have two panels of women on Sunday.
Women will only be in the room during their speaking times to maintain the sacred container of the conference.
How old do I need to be to attend?
Attendees must be 21 years old by April 27th, 2014. We’ll have an event on the last night of the conference that you will need to be 21 for.
Can I bring my girlfriend, fiance or wife? What if I’m single?
No, this is The Conference For Men, not Men and Women. This does not mean that you’re not welcome to attend if you’re in a committed partnership. This conference is for ALL men looking to show up with more purpose, more integrity, and less shame in their lives. Single or in a relationship, this conference is for you.
Will you be recording the speeches to give to people who cannot attend? If not, why?
No, the only way to hear the speeches is by actually attending the conference. We’ve weighed the pros and cons of selling and distributing conference material to make money and promote future conferences, but the ability to hold a safe space for the men attending is far more important than making money.
I’m a gay or transgendered man. Can I attend?
We will be doing a lot of work on Sunday around sex and communication with women. We’re not sure how this will translate directly, but this conference is inclusionary for all men. So, yes, any man can attend regardless of his sexual orientation.
Is there a Facebook group for attendees to connect beforehand?
Yes, it’s a secret group, and you’ll have to be added by the group moderator. Once you’ve bought your ticket, we will add you to the group.
Can I be a volunteer?
We will be recruiting 8-10 volunteer ambassadors. To apply for this role, you must live in San Diego (or in the greater metropolitan area), and you must also be available the entire weekend of the event: Friday, April 25th thru Sunday, April 27th.
Applications to volunteer will be available after ticket sales end. When applications become available Mike will make an announcement on his blog. You may also email Sam at: sam [at] hershberger [dot] co -- (yes, .co not .com). Please use SUBJECT: TCFM: I want to volunteer
Who is speaking at the event?

Some people call me a transformation artist. Some people call me a leader in the men’s movement. And some people call me their secret weapon. I’m a seasoned life coach, adventurer, speaker, and author. And just like you, I’m making this up as I go and doing the best I can.
In my work, I help high performing men master their relationships with their women and their work. And in my life, I unapologetically push forward on the path of growth, while having as much fun along the way as possible. Because if it doesn't involve love or fun, what's the point?

Brad’s passion for what a Men’s Circle experience can do has driven him to facilitate workshops. He holds a foundational truth that, as men, we are reframing the definition of what it is to be a man in today’s world.

As an avid explorer of life, Max forged his path for becoming a Men’s Coach in college, where he broke through his crippling social anxiety and dove into what it means to become a man.
