Introducing XL Tribesmen Club

In true form and fashion over here at XL Tribe, we are continuing to grow, to learn and to invest in our audience so that our audience can invest back into their families and so on and so forth…. we teamed up with  Dr. Marquita & Mr.Donavan West to bring to you the XL Tribesmen Club.

One of the things that we consistently see is that women have spaces to share their feelings and emotions in a healthy and comfortable way. Well, that’s what the XL Tribesmen Club will solve a way for men to do the same. In the future we do plan on adding more people to join in the conversation and hopefully, we can take this thing off line eventually will we have you meet up retreats and things like that or maybe even do a summit. Ultimately my goal is to help men mentally do better, think better and eventually be better. Better men raise better kids, are better husbands and ultimately are better stewards of their community.

In our Tribesmen Club, we will discuss and expand on a lot of the topics from Jay’s 4:44 album. Which will include Communication, Trust, Vulnerability, Safety, Finance, Issues of Masculinity, Traditional vs. Non-Traditional Relationship Roles and more?

Examples of Some of the Articles

This couple (man/woman) has been dating for 1 year.  Over the course of the year, the male partner has had some financial difficulties. One evening the couple

goes on a double date with friends. When the bill comes, girlfriend senses her boyfriend’s discomfort and realizes that the total is out of boyfriend’s budget.

She quietly sends enough cash to his account to cover the bill and texts him to check his account. He pays and all is well. The discussion would center around hierarchy, masculinity and roles/expectations in relationships. It may also include some tips for and navigating through sensitive issues in a relationship

(female partner earning more, partners with unresolved issues from a previous relationship (baby mama/daddy drama, misaligned values in relationships).

Follow – Up Questions May Include:

  1. What do you think of the girlfriend’s actions?
  2. Is she setting up a co-dependent relationship?
  3. How would you have handled this scenario?
  4. What are the possible “fall-out issues” from this interaction, if any?
  5. What advice would you give to this couple?

Keep in mind this format won’t be used on every article but more so to give you an idea of the tye of content we trying to produce. So to make sure both sides of the coin are heard we got Dr. Marqutia and Mr. Donavan as our Tribesmen Council.

They will each be taking question via email and answering them on the site.. askdrmarquita{@} and askdonavan{@}
