1. How To Be The Patriarch Of Your Family - MTP355 Scot McKay 37:40

Co-Host Elliott Katz (https://mountaintoppodcast.com/katz) My returning guest is the author of several books for both men and women on relationships, especially pertaining to long-term success. He’s the right guy to help cover an important topic that has been on my radar screen for a long time now, which is being the patriarch of one’s family. What does that even mean? And does it necessarily have to be tied to the negative Feminist stereotype of ‘The Patriarchy’? Could it be that most red-blooded women really WANT you to be the leader of your family…even your extended family? We know men should provide and protect, but what is the caveat to that if you really want to be respected by your family? Why is it so many men can be leaders at work, but fail at being the leader at home? As it turns out, there are undeniable traits and characteristics of a true family patriarch. What are they? On the other hand, how do perfectly good, decent men take themselves out of the running for being the family patriarch, even if unwittingly? Finally–and importantly–why should a man even WANT or CARE to be the patriarch of his family…especially if he’s still way too young to even think about it yet? What’s in it for him? By the time this episode is finished, you’ll stand up and cheer. You’ll feel believed in, for once…and emerge with quite a bit of third-party validation that what we talk about here at X & Y Communications really, really works.

Scot McKay Dating Strategist

Scot McKay has shared bad jokes with North Korean military officers, sipped coffee at Pablo Escobar’s home (served by his maid), survived a shark attack while surfing, held his breath as the pride of lions walked by his tent, and blitzed through California canyons with his knee on the double-yellow line at 140 mph. Yet somehow, he has also been referred to as the “sane one” on Twitter by Scott Adams, of all people.

But despite once being mobbed by the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders, being able to back a 30′ travel trailer into its slot on the first try, and that time he beat the World Champion at his own sport (no details provided), he’s still the most objective and down-to-earth dating expert out there.

He’s also the most fluff-free fountainhead of original content in his field, if only because that’s what seventeen years of immersive geekery on the subject does for someone.

Scot’s wife Emily is his “proof of concept”, given that she’s just as sweet as she is smokin’ hot and still gets carded at her age. But you’ll never hear her brag about any of that, only Scot.

His show The Mountain Top has also been named a Top 10 Dating Podcast by DatingAdvice.com, and a long time ago Grader.com weirdly ranked Scot the #1 most influential Facebook user in the world.
