243: How to Communicate Better and Express Vulnerability as Men in Relationships

Originally Published Mar 04, 2021 This week we will be exploring a subject often ignored – men and vulnerability in relationships. Travis Belanger will be telling us about his journey that started in divorce in the early 2000’s and what he learned along the way. Now he helps men get in touch with themselves and be able to show up in their relationships of all types in being able to show emotion in a healthy way without feeling a loss of power within. All this flows with his mission: To change the belief that “men don’t talk” and create opportunities for men to be more connected and authentic to who they are and vulnerable about the challenges they face.


Guest Bio

Travis Belanger is a dynamic coach, speaker and founder of Men On Fire. Travis helps men ignite their life and reclaim their passion & purpose. Which helps them redefine how they identify themselves, change their dialogue internally and with others to create a more fulfilled life. Travis realized the need for men to come together to support each other, share ideas and struggles. He created Ignite Your Life Brotherhood that meets monthly and plans to grow that community.   


After going through a divorce and multiple relationships struggles, he realized that there was something missing in his life. He began a personal growth journey that would change him forever. Staying busy and always go go go, he ignored everything on the inside. Once he became aware of this, he realized that how he had been living, wasn’t serving him in a positive way.  Travis began looking for answers to why he was struggling and not where he wanted to be. He realized he was the common factor in all of it and knew it was time to change. After reading numerous books, taking personal development courses and connecting with mentors, Travis realized there’s so much we don’t know and it became his life’s mission to share it with other men.  Society perpetuates men living in their traditional stoic, unemotional, “provider” roles, but not necessarily in a way that creates the best version of themselves. Travis helps them open up and be more connected, authentic and successful.
