This isn’t your average personal development blog.

And NOT because Just Be Real’s been rated a top 100 personal development blog.

No. The reason is:

  1. I don’t sugar coat anything.
  2. I don’t hold back.
  3. I’m straightforward.
  4. Brutally honest.
  5. I swear (you read that right).
  6. I touch on topics others won’t challenge.
  7. I have a no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is approach.
The “average” personal development blog is like a garden full of daisies.


Everything looks nice and pretty. But that’s not how it always works.

So you’ll find nothing but no-nonsense insights, tips and advice to build your confidence and grow as a human being.

And you won’t be mislead while you’re at it.

I don’t claim to know it all. I don’t.

But what I do claim to do is share my experiences in hopes to benefit you in some way, shape or form.

And the same is true for all the authors and bloggers who contribute to Just Be Real.
