The absence of role models in a young boy’s life

Last week Australia inherited a new Prime Minister in Malcolm Turnbull, a self-made man who displays the benefits of some solid single-parenting. Mr Turnbull opened up about the experiences recently on the ABC’c Australian story and the influence his Father had on him throughout his formative years. It’s a side of the politician I had no knowledge of and is refreshing to see when many other public figures abstain from opening up but rather leave us with watered-down, PR-friendly versions of themselves.

Stuart Cox – Where the real men are

Despite being the founder of the Where the real men are, I’ve not fully divulged where my personal story sits in regard to it. Finally I get around to speaking freely about the origins of this project and what it means to me.

While I’d be happy to one day have someone ask me the tough questions, this time I’ll shoot from the heart in a brief introduction as to who I am and why we’re on this little crusade. Hopefully it gives you some scope as to what we’re all about and you can appreciate and/or join in on what I hope is a lasting and successful adventure.

Thanks for watching and reading, Stuart Cox.

Take it from a Rock legend

Duff Mckgam Load

Duff McKagan doesn’t need to, but he is just saying it how it is and doing a damn fine job. The bassist from Guns n’ Roses, Loaded and Velvet Revolver does more than his fair share of writing these days and for us, this is the pick.

What a man is to him, learning from mistakes and making decisions it is all there and refreshing to hear from the kind of person that many of us idolised in our youth. Courtesy of Seattle Weekly:

Apparently there is also a book of such Duffisms:
