The Modern

Renaissance

Man Story

Modern Renaissance Man is..

About the man who recognizes that he’s on a journey to discover his deepest truth. The resourceful man who’s willing to find his edge and meet his challenges with a fire in his soul and seeks to manifest harmony and sovereignty in life.

We exist to help tomorrow’s leaders create themselves TODAY.

We inspire men to confidently show their families, their communities, and the world exactly who the f*#k they are.

Through brotherhood, we transform lone wolves into pack heads. Through vulnerability, we guide men to release limiting beliefs and step into their power.

Yeah, we encourage style and self-expression, but we’re more than just men with dope tats and swaggy hats. We empower men show up as better entrepreneurs, creators, and impact-driven leaders by disconnecting from doubt and reconnecting them with themselves– shifting society’s view on masculine leadership.

This ain’t your granddaddy’s boy’s club. This is training.

This is where Modern Renaissance Men are seen, heard and put to the fire to be forged for service.

Modern Renaissance Man empowers men

to find their edge so they can fully express their truth and own their power. Through brotherhood, resources and transformative events, we inspire men to lead embodied and integrated lives of service.
We are the movement shifting society’s view on leadership and masculinity.

Success Stories

“Through my relationship with MRM, I’ve been able to cultivate the skills, temperament, and capabilities of a true man. The brothers have shown me the power of acting from integrity, challenging myself to stay in honor by holding true to my words, actions, and deeds; their example continuously proves to me the power of a man of integrity, whose word is amplified by the full force of his masculine presence, energy, and commitment. As I continue to grow, I feel a constantly deepening bond with these men, who continue to hold me in my highest and best version of myself, allow me to fully flourish as the man I know I am, and, thankfully, am constantly reminded of by their reflection.”

“MRM has changed my life for the better…previously I was a lone wolf, totally isolated…after meeting MRM, these men held tremendous space for me to help uncover the doubts and traumas that were hidden in the shadows…as a result, I let go of so much fear, resentment and anger…I never felt more aligned with myself and my professional life…these brothers helped me get out of my own way and for that, I am eternally grateful…I am a Modern Renaissance Man for life.”

Our Story

Modern Renaissance Man began with the combined vision of our Co-Founders,
Jose Alejandro and Voy Wiacek.

During their time working together in Corporate America, Jose Alejandro started a men’s group veiled as a book club and Voy was one of the first to who show up to its initial meeting.

Fortunately, this encounter revealed that the two had common goals.

Jose wanted to provide men with meaningful growth and personal development opportunities by bridging the worlds of men’s lifestyle and well-being.

Voy wanted to create a brand that helped men cultivate masculine leadership and the integration of mind, body, and soul through style and fitness.

The rest was history; MRM was born!

However, it wasn’t easy.

They initially experienced many roadblocks in manifesting this vision, as it was hard communicating the importance of integrated self-mastery and embodied leadership to men.

Constantly met by their edge and sometimes deterred by self-doubt, their commitment was tested, but remained unshakable.

Knowing the impact it had on their own lives, there was no turning back on giving this gift to other men.

By leaning into the early events and experiences, the transformation men felt continued to validate this vision and fueled its growth.

They began expressing themselves authentically, leading more confidently, and identifying with a sense of community.

MRM was successfully bridging the gap between men’s lifestyle and men’s work, meeting men where they are and offering them the tools and resources to lead and live freely.

The community continued to grow and the co-founders found themselves surrounded by a brotherhood of embodied leaders committed to service and a mutual mission.

MRM had taken on a consciousness of its own.

There was no turning back.

MRM wasn’t just a men’s brand, it wasn’t just a men’s group; it was a lifestyle– a way of being.
