About

Welcome to The Renaissance Man Podcast, home of the most interesting men in the world.

Ren·ais·sance Man

noun
 a person with many talents or areas of knowledge.

Have you ever met someone who is always busy pursuing a multitude of activities? Or someone with a broad range of knowledge, who seems to have been everywhere and knows the most random facts? Have you ever wondered how or why they do it? Do you wish that you too could live a more varied life and finally explore those interests you’ve always had in the back of your mind but have pushed aside or not acted on for one reason or another?

Well, you’re in the right place. By learning more about the activities and habits of Renaissance Men, you too will be better equipped to dabble and explore with confidence and lead a more interesting life.

Are you one of those crazy people that can’t sit still? That can’t pick just one passion or focus?

For Renaissance Men, this site exists to both support and nurture your unique personality.


 

MORE SKILLS, MORE SUCCESS

Everywhere we go, society tells us to specialize. It commands that we focus on one thing because that’s the only way to get ahead in life.

This constant barrage of mono-everything can take it’s toll on any polymath. I’m here to reassure you that multiplicity is not a bad thing. I’m here to encourage you to become more varied than ever.

“I suppose it is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a nail.”

– Maslow’s Hammer

The Renaissance Man Podcast is here to renew your desire to add more tools to your toolbox.

Today, the traditional path so many previous generations have followed is crumbling: Go to school, specialize, graduate, get a job, work at it for 40 years, retire and play golf.  This approach isn’t working anymore. Today, so many people find themselves left out in the cold, wondering what happened? They followed the same path as their parents and grandparents but the results were totally different.

It’s a common story but the good news is that today there are more alternative paths to success than ever before.  I’ve found that knowing a little bit about a lot is not only useful, but incredibly rare. Being well-rounded sets you apart from everyone else and makes you stand out in people’s minds.

I invite you to join me, as I share everything that I’ve learned while pursuing my dream life.

ABOUT THE HOST

My name is Marco Almeida and I’m glad you stopped by!

I’m just your average modern-day Jack Of All Trades trying to broaden my understanding of who I am, where to go from here, and how to help others along the way. I’ve seen and done a lot and it has left me wanting to see and do even more than before. But this time, I’ve decided to make my explorations and experiences available to everyone.
