Reposting one of my favorites from my first posts that I did on here, which is more meaningful now that I'm actually a father to a son. Father's, raise your sons to be men of good moral fiber and strong character. Teach them honor, respect, integrity, and compassion. Groom them to be the leaders of tomorrow, in their communities, churches, governments, and more importantly in their families and homes. Lead your sons by the example you live so that they'll know that chivalry is not dead, and that being a gentleman is a way of life. May they grow up focused on being the right kind of man, first for themselves, then for the right woman, but more importantly, for the betterment of generations of men to follow behind them.

Gentleman's tip: "Throughout my life, I grew up watching my Dad always romancing my Mom, and in the very simplest of ways that always, always, always put a smile on her face. One of the most consistent things he would do for her is write little love notes, that alway started with "To My Darling Cecilia..". He would make homemade cards for her, drawing flowers all over the cards, and write to her in the most perfect cursive penmanship. These notes and cards were personalized from his heart, made with effort and purpose and love, something that no mass produced store bought card could ever truly convey.
Gentlemen, if you want to win her heart, or keep her heart, then do the things that will earn her heart, because your special woman deserves that extra personalized efforts of love. #theartofbeingagentleman #manup #mjsolofa #mjsolofamensgrooming" β€” @mjsolofamensgrooming @theartofbeingagentleman #newagegents

Sage advice from one of the classiest actors that I've admired growing up, be it him acting as James Bond, or in one of my favorite movies still to this day, the 1978 commando movie "The Wild Geese". May each of us during our lifetimes remember to teach love, spread love, spread aloha, and live aloha, and do it all with a touch of class along the way. Rest in peace Sir Roger Moore, my son Savai'i will grow up knowing your legacy the same way I did, through your movies.βœ¨πŸ™πŸ½πŸΈβ€οΈπŸŒ΄β˜€οΈπŸŒΊπŸπŸπŸ€™πŸ½

Saturday mornings vibes in the shop. Give good cuts and shaves, but even better service! Service is like butter on the bread. Without butter it's just plain bread, same goes with service. Without great service its just another haircut. Hoping all fellow barbers and creative people have a prosperous day today. # barber life #groomingmentobebettermen #theartofbeingagentleman #tradionalbarber

#Throwback

No one marries expecting to divorce, but failed marriages (or relationships for that matter) don't have to mean failed parenting when there are children involved. As adults, we all understand that there are consequences to our actions, so if we are grown as adult enough to make theme, then we should all be as equally grown and adult to raise them. Not all love stories have fairytale endings, but every child born into this world deserves the chance at a fairytale beginning.

This little girl doesn't know it yet-- but I need her more than she needs me.
(¯`·._.·(¯`·._.· ❀️ ·._.·´¯)·._.·´¯)
To most, I am notability motivated with a paramount sense of fortitude, certitude and determination. I believe I am self-aware and realize my own flaws. Beneath my charismatic facade is an insecure, bewildered and paralyzed soul. I am continuously combating my defects by tying master fatherhood, significant other, emotional intelligence, leadership core competencies and continuously obtaining exceptional education.
(¯`·._.·(¯`·._.· ❀️ ·._.·´¯)·._.·´¯)
I draw energy and strength from my love ones and inner circle of friends. My daughter makes me stronger every day I am with her.

Classic, timeless style...

In a world where social media has become everyone's medium to share everything about their personal life, there is still greater value to be had in keeping one's private life exactly that,....private. Where so many opt to share the change in their relationship status, or vent to the world how scorned their hearts maybe, a gentleman and a lady will always prefer to not only work on their relationship in private, but keep their challenges and struggles and trials and tribulations private too. While there's nothing wrong with celebrating love over the airwaves via social media, there is definitely something more to be respected and admired by those who prefer to celebrate their love journey privately.

Confused between a business look and a casual look? Business casual saves the day...

Thank you Lord for another truly blessed and fruitful week in the Parlor shared with colleagues and clients alike, thank you to all who came in for grooming services and for supporting us in our Barbering journeys, and thank you to everyone here on social media who appreciates what we do, share, and post in the hopes of spreading love, spread aloha, and living aloha through Barbering. Have an amazing weekend everyone and remember to make time for your loved ones. βœ¨πŸ™πŸ½πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈβ€οΈπŸŒΊπŸπŸŒ΄β˜€οΈπŸπŸ€™πŸ½

Throwback Thursday video. Over the years I've affectionately referred to my daughter as "The Boss", and true to that name she showed in this old video as to why she's in charge of this family business of ours,....because she's all about leading, NOT about following! Lol!! I wonder if "The Spinners", "The Drifters", "The Four Tops", "The Temptations", or even "New Edition" for that matter had that one member that always wanted to break from formation and steal the spotlight?! Oh yeah, "New Edition" had Bobby Brown,... well, there always one in every group, but as our leader, she deserves all of the spotlight she wants. βœ¨πŸ™πŸ½β€οΈπŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈπŸŒ΄πŸŒΊπŸβ˜€οΈπŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ•ΊπŸΌπŸ€™πŸ½

Clean up your act + treat yourself to some essential grooming products...

"The most effective way to do it, is to do it." - Amelia Earhart
--------------
You can spend a lifetime dreaming of the life you want, but a life time of living in a dream world is often just wasted effort and years. Or, you could take a leap of faith and TRY to make the life you always wanted, with effort and purpose and perseverance and resilience, and maybe,...just maybe,....doing something about it will actually make it all come to fruition. Stop day dreaming, and start day doing, because the best time to start living your best life is always NOW! βœ¨πŸ™πŸ½πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈβ€οΈπŸŒ΄πŸŒΊπŸβ˜€οΈπŸπŸ€™πŸ½

Dapper and elegant πŸ“·: @skullbeardmode

Maybe it's just a man's nature to want to be heard more than just been seen, explaining why more men would prefer to always offer up an opinion, advice, knowledge and facts (regardless of validity) instead of just humbling listening to them, and then without any desire for fanfare or applause, act on them. Perhaps Ernest Hemingway said it best when he was quoted as saying "I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen." Gentlemen, don't be "that guy" who must always dominate a conversation or be the center of a rooms attention by always being the loudest in the room, because often times the loudest person in the room is the one who not only wants the most attention, but actually knows the least and has the most insecurities. Walk with humility, speaks words of value and with purpose, and take more opportunities to listen and learn, rather than speaking for the sake of just being heard.
