Shownotes

Lucas Krump is building a community for men. He’s the CEO and co-founder of Evryman which proudly calls itself ‘more than just a men’s group’.

It’s a global network of men who are helping each other to live more fulfilling and ultimately successful lives.

In this episode of Let’s Connect For Good, Lucas tells Alicia about his journey which led to the creation of Evryman, including trauma during his childhood.

They discuss the cultural trap experienced by men in society to not express themselves fully, which holds true even today. They talk about the importance of mental well-being, the effect on it from the pandemic, and why lockdown has, in fact, helped people understand its significance even better.

You'll also learn:

  • Why trauma is inevitable and what really matters is how you overcome it and the lessons you learn from being in it
  • How science explains our feelings of connection
  • Why the community is self-created
  • How to create balance in society
