How A "Lazy, Big-Mouthed" College Dropout Became One of the Most Wildly Successful Lifestyle Bloggers on the Planet...

Hey, there.


My name's Jon Anthony, and I've been featured in some of the biggest websites out there.


Forbes, Entrepreneur, USA Today, Barbend, T-Nation. You name it.


In fact, over the past 5 years, I've helped over 5,000+ high-achieving men:

  • Supercharge Their Dating Lives - From high-school kids trying to ask their crush on a date, to middle-aged men seeking to re-enter today's tumultuous dating environment, I've helped a wide variety of men not only increase the number of the dates, but the quality of their dates as well
  • Get in "Superhero" Shape - One of my passions is, and always has been, fitness. I love teaching motivated men the tricks of the trade, like how to burn fat fast as hell, and how to build muscle without having it take forever. I ESPECIALLY love exposing the myths and lies of the fitness industry, too
  • Increase Their Wealth - Whether it's my cryptocurrency investing course, which has helped several men become millionaires, or my blogging course, which has allowed numerous men to quit their jobs and become financially free, I've helped dozens of men across the world achieve financial freedom

It wasn't always like this, though.

In 2015 I Was Desperate. Flat Broke, and Struggling to Scrape By.

I was going to college, as a philosophy and mathematics "pre-law" double major, but I quickly found out that the regular "work grind" wasn't for me.


After all, why would I want to work to make someone ELSE rich?


So, I ended up dropping out of college, with nobody to support me but myself.


In fact, I was so embarrassed about it, that I hid it from my parents for months.


(They know now, and we are on very good terms, of course)


At the time, I had NO CLUE how I was going to support myself, but I was determined to find a way. I was NOT going to be a fucking office slave for the rest of my life. No way in hell.


So, after a slew of online gigs and side hustles that didn't work, I asked myself one very important question:


"How can I start making money with what I'm good at?"


"I'm good at fitness," I thought. "I love self-improvement, too."


So then, it dawned upon me.


Why not start a blog, where I share what I've learned with others?


What better way to make a living, than by helping men across the world?

Thus, Masculine Development Was Born

Just like that, I started a blog.


I was confused as HELL at first, but I'd seen others make a killing from their blogs (guys like Victor Pride, Good Looking Loser, and Mike Cernovich).


So, like the headstrong man I am, I set out to learn. Whatever it took.


It wasn't easy at first. In fact, it was HELL at first.


At one point I was so far behind on rent, and so broke, that I was literally living off of protein shakes and donuts (that's all I could afford).


I remember being in bed, late at night...


Not being able to fall asleep, because I was TERRIFIED.

  • "How am I going to pay rent this month?"
  • "What if I go broke and have to move back in with my parents?
  • "What if this was all for nothing?"

Thoughts like this raced through my head almost 24/7.


...but again, I was determined as hell.


And it finally paid off.

Cracking The Code

After a couple of years, I started to crack the "blogging" code.


By 2017 I was making around $5,000 per month from my blog.


By 2018 it was around $7,500 per month.


Then, in 2020, after years of hard work, everything started to click, and I started making upwards of $30,000 per month from my blog.


In fact, here's some screenshots so you know I'm the real deal - 



Needless to say, life is pretty good these days.


After throwing myself into the abyss, with one singular goal (to make it big), after YEARS of struggle, I was finally able to make my dreams come true.


In fact, my blog ended up becoming SO successful and profitable, that I had a ton of dudes asking me to make a course on how to do it.


(Which I made, and you can click here to learn more about)


Now I spend most of my time managing this blog, working out, helping other men grow THEIR blogs, and going on as many vacations as I can.


After mastering the areas of fitness, dating, money, and lifestyle, I now aim to teach it to other men seeking to learn (because yes, these are skillsets, and you can LEARN them).


So, if you're ready and willing to learn, go read through this blog, and see what area of your life you want to start mastering first.


To Your Success,
