A brotherhood of badass Asian dudes seeking their own definition of accomplishment, cultural identity, and masculinity through personal development, mental health, life coaching, emotional intelligence, and psychedelic plant medicine
This is a place for Badass Asian Dudes to become the best version of themselves both on the outside and inside. This is more than achieving big goals just to check off another list.

We talk to Asian male-identifying entrepreneurs, investors, thought leaders, therapists/coaches, entertainers, experts, researchers, etc. about how they managed their internal experience and external obstacles to get to where they are today. So you can have everything you need to truly live a badass life from within.
