Men like tools. That’s why we’re giving you a set of your own tools. We’ve also designed the Toolbox of Change as an additional set of resources for you. They are not excerpts from Oprah on how to keep your mortgage low, no GQ column on well-defined abs. These are the wrenches, drills, and sometimes jackhammers of building your life.
Your life as a man. We like to define this here because we have some precepts about what a man is. We believe a lot of us wear the physiology of a man, but disallow (through culture, unhealthy relationships, stress, trauma, etc.) the psychology and the essence of being a man.
We suggest a man is capable and in control of his life. This is naturally only possible if he's living the life he wants, the life he's chosen, created for himself. The tools to do that are right here.
Here is your set of tools. Use them to build that life you always wanted.
owenmarcus.com is the blog for Owen and F2W. We dive deep into how to free ourselves, how to win and how to be with women where everyone wins. We explore new research as well as the wisdom of ancient traditions. We address the concerns of men today that have a virtual and a real life that never stops.
owenmarcus.com pulls back the veils that hide what it really is to be your own man. You learn how stress and our culture take you out. You discover simple ways to get back in the game so you win.
Grow Up: A Man’s Guide to Masculine Emotional Intelligence
Owen’s book lays out the nine stages in a man’s development. When one of these phases is skipped due to stress, trauma or just not being modeled or taught you have a gap in your maturation. That gap becomes a hole that you are vulnerable to fall into.

What is your MQ?
Emotional intelligence for men is not an oxymoron, it’s just something we never had modeled or taught.
Your MQ or Masculine Emotional Quotient represents your embodiment of masculine emotional qualities. After centuries of growing up in a culture where women raised kids and became the responsible party for emotions the masculine prospective disappeared.
F2W is about helping you bring back what is inherent within you—your own way of being a man emotionally. Over the years of working with men we have observed key emotional traits that when possessed by a man his life rocks. He’s happy and so are those in relationship to him.
Your MQ score reflects how much you have mastered these unique masculine emotional traits.
Developing them can be easy. They aren’t learning how to be a macho jerk or some weak new age man. You are learning how to express yourself in ways that you always wanted to express. Here’s a secret… it also the way women want you to express.
Women want us to be emotional. They will tell us how to do it—from a feminine prospective. What they want is right on; how they want us do it isn’t right for us men. Yet, when we do it in our own masculine way, women melt.
We are busy developing the test to draw out these skills. We already have many of the programs to raise your MQ. Click on the the image to learn more about our MQ (Masculine Quotient) Test. We need men and women to take our beta test, if you do we will give you two tests for you and your emotionally intelligent friend. Thanks for helping us.
