Gay vs. Straight Fathers - Is There a Difference?

STAND Magazine (a magazine for men who give a damn) asked me to explore what makes gay fathers different from straight fathers. Hmm.

I figured the best way to explore that would be to ask some gay fathers. So I crowd-sourced my response. Click here to give it a read on STAND.

Is Your Brand Struggling with Millennials?

Ok so this isn't the first article ever written about marketing to Millennials. And it won't be the last. But it is my first one for Entrepreneur, and perhaps my last.

Pariah Men's Underwear

There's a new line of men's underwear out there that is looking to change the world...the men’s health world that is. The brand's aim is to help provide men's healthcare to those underserved and under-informed and to specifically educate about testicular self-exams with the ultimate goal of eliminating testicular cancer.

Ok, kinda makes sense coming from a men’s underwear brand. Keep going...

It's called Pariah underwear. And while the imagery is very sexy and very “underwear," the message is uniquely clear for the skivvy category: make sure you don't suffer from testicular cancer and support the brand that helps you get there.

Each package comes with an educational pamphlet and each item sold contributes 50% of the sale price to research. So $5.00 from a $9.95 brief goes to researching a cure for testicular cancer (and other men's health issues). Not bad.

Plus the product has a "new" technology called CLEANCOOL that helps to eliminate odor.

I'm sold on Pariah. What's your experience? JIM

Race Case

I was traveling recently with a colleague in Italy, and he snapped (with permission) this pic of a gentleman on something called a Race Case. It’s a roller bag with a scooter built in, so that not only do you not have to carry your luggage through the airport but you can also scoot through the long corridors to make your flight.

Pretty ingenious, I must say. Turns out that the gentleman was the inventor. Wow!

And it’s available via Suit Supply, a men’s clothing retailer that I also just recently discovered. Have partaken in that brand yet, but I will. I have my eye on a vest there! But I digress, here’s their sales video for Race Case:

Want one? I kinda do! What’s your experience? JIM
