I wasted my 20s. Here’s how: a Born Muslim’s Convert Story.

It was all necessary. Those experiences made me who I am today.

But that doesn’t mean others have to make the same mistakes, or worse.

You don’t have to learn the hard way. Most of you will, because you don’t listen to people with more experience than you.

Some of you won’t. You’re the smart ones. This post is for you.

Like me, Alexander Juan Antonio Cortes wasted his 20s.

I asked him to join me on the Becoming the Alpha Muslim podcast to talk about the mistakes we both made.

We also tell you how young Muslim men (and non-Muslim men) in their late teens and early-to-mid 20s can do better.

If you don’t know who Alex is, he was one of my earliest podcast guests. We talked about the connection between physicality and spirituality.

You should listen to it after you finish listening to this one. Both are jam-packed with invaluable wisdom and practical life advice.
