Talking Beards

May 22, 2016

One of my favorite "beard-o's" in the community, Anthony " The Stache" Fontes joins me for an afternoon of talking about the bearding community.  Anthony and I began our journeys around the same time in the world of facial hair competitions.  Setting lofty goals right off the bat, Anthony has got his personality all over his styles and has delivered in getting he face, and beard, out there.  His approach of style is more of a creative branding of himself and a way to get in front of a completely new audience and share the world of creative facial hair design.  Take a listen and find out how Anthony started off growing, competing, designing, and organizing events in the bearding world.  This was one fun time with a good guy.  He has a great view on the community and interesting thoughts on self promotion.  There are many great stories in this podcast.  Take a listen and take away some excellent insight from one of the communities well known faces and beards.  Thanks to Anthony Fontes and the Wings of Destiny for a fun afternoon!!!  Please check out these links below to things we discussed.  Subscribe on ITunes, Stitcher, and now GooglePlay. Let your friends know about this podcast and help me try and grow something special!!!
