Alf Herigstad has loved writing since he was a child. Since then he has authored hundreds of poems and stories, just for fun. He had a love for the written word and enjoyed being able to invoke emotion and inspire thought in others. Later, he wrote professionally for a time in the Army and used his passion for writing in many of his entrepreneurial ventures.
In 2012, Alf became a contestant on a popular Norwegian Reality show called ‘Alt For Norge,’ it was a life-changing experience in many ways. Upon returning to America he wrote his first book, an account of his adventures based on the journal he kept in Norway. A revision of that book will be available soon in paperback and digitally. Its a behind the scenes look at being on a reality show in a different country, what its like to be embraced by a nation, and the experience of being ‘re-booted’ to your factory settings.
Alf has done a lot of things in the past five decades; He isn’t just a minor celebrity in Norway, he has been a boxer, a boxing gym owner / trainer, a construction contractor, an Ostrich farmer, a long-haul truck driver and worked in several other industries such as real estate and fitness.
Alf is currently the creator and host of the popular podcast, ‘Being A Better Man.’ A program that is focused exclusively on the character of men of all ages. You can listen at his website: www.beingabettermanpodcast.com, or on Apple Podcasts, or Stitcher.
He also enjoys contributing to his local community by volunteering time to projects, hosting gatherings, and also being a substitute school bus driver with a portion of his time.
