Process Hacker News for October 16, 2017

I started publishing Hack the Process as a podcast last year to gather and share insights from people who’ve managed to get over the hurdle of going from an idea to putting something real out into the world. One of the things I learned along the way was how helpful it can be to curate regular lists of inspiring publications and services. And since I’ve been following our growing community of Process Hackers, here are some of their recent updates you might appreciate. Check out what they’re working on, and please be sure to let them know what you think by offering your feedback.

The Power to Heal and Grow as Integrated Men, with JuVan Langford on Hack the Process Podcast, Episode 42

Being a man in modern society comes with a lot of assumptions and negative stereotypes. JuVan Langford took a look at his own struggles with finding a positive masculine identity for himself, and made it his mission to help men identify with their integrated selves. JuVan currently runs a nonprofit that counsels young men in school, and works as a men’s empowerment coach, running events and working directly with clients around the world. In this episode, JuVan will share how he turned his feelings of vulnerability as an abused child into an asset, how he trains his clients to choose and use affirmations even when they don’t believe them at first, and how he identifies and connects with mentors from the past and the present as part of his personal development.
