As a high-achieving man, society often sees you as having everything you could want. But we know that true happiness and fulfillment go beyond optics of the right job, right family dynamic, right home etc.
We’ve become accustomed to responding to the question “how are you?” with generic phrases like “good thanks” or “hanging in there.”
But as men and fathers, we owe it to ourselves and our families to strive for more, to make a difference and create a legacy we can be proud of.
The Privileged Man was created to connect other high achieving men who feel the call.
Together, we listen, learn, empathise, and hold each other accountable.
We know that the days of “man up” or “just tough it out” are over but that doesn’t mean sitting around in a vortex of awareness.
The results of inaction (or for want of a better phrase – “lumping it”) are generational loops of wasted lives, broken relationships, families, businesses, communities and ultimately society. So, as such you will be held to account to take acction.
It serves no one not too.
A stiff upper lip cannot digest life, it can only stop the embodiment of riches.
It’s time to break the cycle, for you and your children’s sake.
Pete is the Founder of The Privileged Man. Brought up in Surrey in the UK, Pete had an exceptional education at Aldro and Charterhouse School.
Subsequently Pete ventured out on an illustrious real estate career working for Knight Frank, Merrill Lynch and CBRE in London and then Hong Kong. The gold standard way to spend your 20’s.
However, after a couple of years in Hong Kong, Pete was asked to lead a Real Estate Private Equity team in Bali buying beaches.
On paper, it was heaven, but Bali asked many questions of his existence.
Thus, whilst trying to sustain a professional persona through capital raising ventures and highly stressful, complex work situations in Indonesia, Pete’s world went from light to dark.
Determined to heal, the fall out catapulted him into the world of personal development, spending two years travelling the world working on himself, and asking searching questions about his and the world’s future.
During these years, Pete identified that there were no spaces for men of his similar background to safely express themselves with other men without fear of ridicule, and the idea of The Privileged Man was born.
Pete lives in Seaview on the Isle of Wight with his wife Joanna and his two daughters.
