Michael J. K. replied to Rocco Vallerand's discussion Looking for a mentor in the group Manly Mentors
"well sometimes when someone is hurt or falls down it is in the standing up to walk some more where the real strength of a man lies I choose to live with integrity and passion and love. Some men do not go this route."

Henry H. replied to Rocco Vallerand's discussion Looking for a mentor in the group Manly Mentors
"Yes, a sound approach, but I wasn't talking about keeping one another accountable to our individual respective goals / commitments; I was talking about commitments to the group, to ensure its viability.  If a group is to exist, then…"

Todd Serveto replied to Rocco Vallerand's discussion Looking for a mentor in the group Manly Mentors
"While I've never done live group meet-ups, I'd like to comment on failure to reach benchmarks.  A good principal to follow is: "you get as much freedom as you can handle". It works like this---you and your Acct. Partner or…"

Henry H. replied to Rocco Vallerand's discussion Looking for a mentor in the group Manly Mentors
"Agreed.  Phone via Skype is best.  I've had some good and bad experiences with other accountability groups, and one of the important lessons I learned was to have a "three strikes" policy toward absenteeism, failure to…"

Todd Serveto replied to Rocco Vallerand's discussion Looking for a mentor in the group Manly Mentors
"Only one caveat--a group cyber-chat (particularly once per month) is no substitute for one-on-one accountability on at least a once-a-week basis.  And that needs to be as face-to-face as possible---if "in person" is not…"

"I like the Skype idea - probably monthly.  Forums, chats, etc. (for me) can be a big time suck."

Todd Serveto replied to Rocco Vallerand's discussion Looking for a mentor in the group Manly Mentors
"It would be fantastic if we could do that.  Guys often struggle to make accountability arrangements work over the long haul.  At first, EVERYBODY is enthusiastic.  Naturally, you've got a new friend who is interested in helping…"

Rocco Vallerand replied to Rocco Vallerand's discussion Looking for a mentor in the group Manly Mentors
"I'm loving your suggestions Todd. I will definitely check that app out. I also had an idea.....speaking of Skype chat, perhaps we all can meet for weekly or monthly video chat round ups to discuss with each other our successes and areas of…"

Todd Serveto replied to Rocco Vallerand's discussion Looking for a mentor in the group Manly Mentors
"I hope we can get some hearty accountability partnerships going as a result of this discussion.  I know it helps me to have to report to someone--and I tend to respond very well to the carrot/stick approach.  Meanwhile, there is a great,…"

"Yea, you'll want insurance for the meds.  My meds would cost $270 if I didn't have insurance.  But yeah if you do make the plunge, just remember to take the meds like every 24 hours on or as close to the dot as possible."
