Ep.132 | Wednesday Recap | Fred Stokes

This is a post for both the men and the ladies.


You’re not soft if you need to get emotional. You’re STRONG. 

Don’t buy into the narrative that men have to always have the gameface on. Your ultimate growth and success is tied to your willingness to be vulnerable, ESPECIALLY with the people you love and care about. 

Real talk, I’ve learned more about myself (and others!) after crying than I have after laughing. 


Encourage the men in your life to show their emotions. Bottling them up helps no one. In fact, it makes matters worse. 

The quicker the men in your life learn how to lean into their emotions…

The quicker they’re able to communicate their emotions confidently and under control…

The more everyone benefits.

In today’s episode of Coming Up Clutch™️, I summarize the Top 3 nuggets from Monday’s interview with Super Bowl Champion and former 10-year NFL veteran turned global keynote speaker, author, and entrepreneur, Fred Stokes.
