How My Journey Began

My Mission

Simply put, it’s to transform lives. My name is Pav Nikolov and for the last 8+ years I’ve been on a journey of self discovery. I have a deep passion for guiding men to take the inner journey deep into themselves, to slay their dragons, connect back to the earth, back to who they truly are, so they can live a purposeful life and lead from their heart.

I got originally into personal development and in men’s work in particular, because of (you guessed it) a woman. I fell in love, and it quickly realised there was something missing on a fundamental level and if I was to keep this person in my life, I had to rise to the challenge and look within.

Naturally what I did was to start looking for ways to become better with women as I thought this was my problem … “How to be an Alpha Male” articles lead me to discover Pick Up and so called Pick up Artists (PUA). And whilst that has it place and does work, it quickly became obvious to me that I didn’t resonate with the manipulative nature of it, women being sexual conquests and numbers for most of the misguided men.

It wasn’t so much becoming better with women, but a lot more deeper topics – how to mature, grow into adulthood, let the boy die in order for the man to be born.

I believe most people when asked ” What is a Man” they imagine or refer to an adult male human being. To me being a man is some thing sacred, which goes way deeper than mere sexual encounters and flashy pick up lines.

So I started learning more about how to become a man, healing through trials and tribulations and naturally mu journey lead me to men’s work. This is how Man with Purpose was born.

Today, I am still on my own journey learning and growing every day. In this process, I have personally spent over $30,000 on mentoring, personal development, workshops, retreats and more in just the last few years and have trained in various modalities (NLP, Coaching, Bio Energetics and more).


I take a no BS approach and promise to show up without judgement and guide you on your journey to reconnecting with your deeper self.

Lets Connect
