Damian Taggart

Practical solutions for men.

Do you have an issue you want clear, unbiased, insightful input on? Consider booking a session.I am passionate about supporting men in building health, positive relationships, financial well-being, and overcoming challenges.

Modern men face unique challenges & are increasingly being left behind.

I offer compassionate, solutions-focused consultations for men.

I am passionate about helping men and have personally felt how difficult it is to find real wisdom and mentorship. I am a man who actually understands what you are going through, not only intellectually, but based on having lived through similar experiences.There is a dire lack of quality men in the various helping professions, from teachers to therapists and beyond. I am called to offer my support to men and share the lessons I have learned.

My Experience

I bring significant, real world wisdom that comes from achieving amazing successes, and surviving awful lows.

Relevant highlights:

  • Overcoming addiction - I have personally overcome addiction and understand both the positives and negatives of substance use and can provide straight, honest talk without judgement.

  • Rebuilding after being "cancelled" - I have personally felt the pain of substantial loss related to cancel culture and understand how difficult rebuilding can be.

  • Financially successful - I know what it takes to build very high credit and live totally debt-free, working my way up from minimum wage jobs.

  • Relationship loss - I have been through divorce, the suicides of multiple people close to me, and have lost multiple long term partners and friends, and understand the pain from these events.

  • Losing weight - I went from a very sedentary life, weighing over 220 lbs to maintaining a healthy weight at 165 lbs with a healthy 15 percent body fat.

  • Changing careers - I have moved between careers and had to reinvent myself several times.

  • Starting and selling businesses - I have started 6 companies with 2 successful exits.

  • Overcoming low self esteem - I have overcome extreme shyness and social anxiety and have worked hard to build self esteem, self efficacy, and self worth.

  • Overcoming abandonment issues - I was raised in a divorced household with a lot of mental illness and didn't meet my father until I was 38 years old.

  • Having been through the system - I have had life plans altered from having been caught up in the legal system in my youth.

  • Learning how to live through mental illness - I have personally struggled with mental illness and can offer real wisdom in these areas that does not come from a textbook.

  • Overcoming fears - I have learned how to work with fear instead of avoiding it. One example, is overcoming the fear of heights sufficiently to have climbed many of the most challenging sumits in the lower 48 from the Sierras to the Tetons.

  • Developing self discipline I have published 6 books, hosted 2 podcasts, and completed multiple ultra-marathons, including a self-supported solo run across the Grand Canyon and back to the other side in 12 hours.
