Reed Bennet, - HeroHomes.com, CEO

Thomas Typinski is not only my trusted mentor but also my friend. He has taken me through the crucible of my startup offering humor, motivation, and/or two-by-fours-of-truth-across-the-forehead always as warranted. Frankly, I love the guy. And I'm sure anyone that comes in contact with him in the future will benefit just like I did!

Stephen Potter, - Colonel, US Army

I am a man with a lot going on with job, family, commitments out the wazoo.  At 50 do you continue to drive on with your life or put in a framework to achieve and inspire for more. Since meeting T. J., and growing veteran entrepreneurship in Michigan together, I have become even more inspired. Sometimes to push more, make a bigger impact on those I serve, and to lead a more well balanced and purposeful life.

Seann Lewis, - SeannLewis.com, CEO

My name is Seann Lewis and I know Thomas Typinski through the Bunker Labs program. Thomas helped me in many ways. His mentor ship helped me to focus on the important tasks at hand. With his help I have been able to make inroads that would have taken much longer otherwise. His help and mentor ship has been invaluable.

Armando Arteaga, - ToDoolie.com, CTO

TJ helped me realize that my max potential could be raised A LOT higher. To the average person, I was a superstar and most likely to succeed amongst my peers (a bunch of potheads and students). He helped me tweak my lifestyle just a bit and now I track everything I do, eat only clean foods, and operate at a higher level mentally and physically. He is real and authentic with calling out your bullshit and that's what the world lacks right now - to be real with themselves.

Pete Raciti, - Templar Life Safety, CEO

Under the guidance and direction of TJ Typinski, my idea of how to start and grow a business was transformed. The insight, direction and challenges that TJ put forth, made me rethink what I’m doing but more importantly, how I’m doing it!

In the first months I wasn’t sure the changes were even needed. It wasn’t until month 5 and 6 that I started to see the benefits of the changes I made. Of the things I was measuring, ALL of them went in the right direction! The assistance TJ provided was more than helpful, it was transformational.

Jake Gissendanner, Software Engineer

At some point I realized I was not the man I wanted to be.  I honestly wasn't sure who I was. I approached Thomas for help.  He wasted no time, and was direct and honest.  Every man knows the valuable scarcity of this. He coached me towards healthy eating, fitness, life organization, and discovery of purpose.
I have never felt better.  I really mean that.  I very clearly understand who I am and what I want.  I'm happy.  I don't fear failure. I own myself.

Andre T. - Cohort 0001 Member - Week 3 of Program

"Lions Den has far exceeded my expectations. Physically I have pushed my limits more than I realized possible. The coaches never let you quit on yourself, I push my limits daily. Everyone is cool in my Cohort, a bond grown with good people who are attaining new skills, discipline and a better mindset like myself. The only downfall is I’m in my 4th week and I’m going to miss these times and experiences when it is over! I’m glad I joined the ISI Academy because I know in another 5 weeks, my life will never be the same."

The "Iron Sharpens Iron Academy" Roadmap Flyer
Iron Sharpens Iron.

We've heard it all of our lives, but little did we realize how important those words were to living a life to it's fullest potential.

FULLEST POTENTIAL.

I'm not talking about making some money and living comfortably.

Fuck comfort.

All that matters is freedom.

Freedom from the fears that hold us back from our true potential.

Freedom from the chains that societal norms have put on us men.

Freedom to live according to our true nature as men.

Competition.

Exertion of physical energy.

Feeding our magnificent machine by using only the most high quality foods and supplements for fuel.

Without pain, there is no growth. There is simply no possible other way.

No shortcut or "Red Pill".

Discipline.

We've gone soft and society says it's ok.

It's not ok.

It's nobody's else's fault but our own.

There is no one coming to save you. No one to give you an award for carrying an enourmous amount of weight on your shoulders.

It's time to take care of you because that's all you've got.

It's time to be whole again.

It's time we realize that in this game of life...it is always...only...You vs. You.
