Setting boundaries and expectations up front is the key to any successful business and personal relationship. I’m talking to Kyree Oliver about the importance of clear communication, why it’s so easy to learn what you don’t want out of a relationship, and how women can express the masculine aspect of their personality while still allowing their male partner to feel validated.
Kyree is a successful marketing entrepreneur, but his roots are in college football. After leaving his scholarship behind, he spent years interviewing over 600 people from all walks of life about love, friendship, relationships, money, death, and more.
Have you ever found yourself in a difficult situation between a work contract and a crisis? How do you make your expectations clear when entering into a relationship? Is it possible to be in a relationship while owning both the masculine and feminine sides of your personality? I’d love to hear your experience in the comments!

“Real masculinity is holding space for women. Real masculinity is making men feel like they can tell men the difficult things that they don’t want to see sometimes because women have to protect man’s ego.” (41:55)
