It’s time for New Year’s resolutions, people. Maybe you’d like to be less fat. Maybe you’d like to be more fat. Maybe you need to give up the drinking. Maybe you need to read more historical fiction. Whatever. Frankly, I don’t really care what resolutions you have made up to this point. All I care about is that you tack one more resolution on to your list.
Grow the most epic beard of your life.
All the other resolutions may fall by the wayside, but you must stay true to this goal. Like anyone who undertakes a great challenge, you’ll need support. People trying to get in shape may have a trainer. People trying to lose weight can find support in family and friends. When you’re trying to grow a beard, a source of support may not be as readily available. Sadly, many of your friends and family may even attempt to discourage you and try to derail the beard train.
But don’t despair. You have the Beard Coach.
The very first thing you need to do is to download and read (or re-read) the Beard Manifesto. It’s probably the greatest free e-book on the Internet, and it has inspired a great many men to strive for their greatest beard ever
And that’s truly the goal… to grow your best beard. I certainly don’t claim to have the best beard in the world. But I do have the best beard that I can grow.
It doesn’t even have to be a full beard. If you can’t connect your moustache to your beard, then so be it! Keep them separate. It’ll look better than you think. If your cheeks grow out all patchy, then wear a chinstrap or a circle beard. The point is to join us, the gentlemen of the bearded brotherhood… in whatever way you can. 2011 is your beard year. Seize it!
