Our small town, Sandpoint, ID is the focus of this NYT article on western grit.

It's true, after living in all parts of the country, what we are creating in Sandpoint is unique. From our men's groups to the new business like Kochava we are bucking the odds and carving out a community that nourishes us.

Through grit and persistence, the center is holding in this Western small town, against forces that are turning other hamlets into ghost towns.

Many people want to be more assertive in the workplace. Being assertive can help you voice your opinions to your coworkers, help you negotiate that promotion and pay raise, and also has a number of health benefits. #Beingassertive  
Think you know how assertive you are being? Coworkers say otherwise.

Applying these three will end up setting you and your partner free. I have used this model to deepen my romantic relationships, my men’s groups, and my relationships and impact with my clients.
We all want to improve ourselves. Some of us wait for opportunities to come that will change us. Others seek out those opportunities. Either way, change can be a lot of work. So let’s make it easie...

Discovering how to be a Freeman… stumbling towards Remarkable – owenmarcus.com
Introduction

Business owner, blogger, Rolfer, men’s group developer, skier and connoisseur of nature. I like helping others create what they thought impossible, be a body that works or a life that is Remarkable - through combining innovative techniques and the caring of an old friend. 

We live in a time where so much of our interaction is virtual, fast and not personal – we need real interactions. Through developing a micro-community you give yourself what our ancestors had in their tribes, friends that support you beyond your limitations. I teach men and women how to create groups that are intimate communities of sponsorship.

I blog for men and the women who love them at: www.owenmarcus.com. As men we aren’t bad or broken – we never were taught what we needed to learn to be the men we want to be.We were never taught the traits of Masculine Emotional Intelligence.

My passion for men winning as men created Free to Win, a training company for men. We help men get back what it means to be a man – a man that gets to just show up as himself. Our nonprofit, Men Corps give men all they need to start their own free micro-community or men’s group. The documentary fill About Men explores the Sandpoint Men’s Group’s unique model of men’s groups.

    Founder, 2012 - present
    Free2Win is not your usual personal growth development plan. It is not a place for you to embrace your feminine side, learn how to emote like a woman, or find peace in the banality of today's suburbia living. Free2Win is a program, and a community, and it is indeed for men. It is where men come to learn how to be free, and to learn that being free is the first step to succeeding: To winning at the life YOU want to create for yourself.
