In 1984, At the age of 10, Matt entered the Milton Hershey School, a private tuition-free boarding school in Hershey PA founded by the Chocolate Magnate Milton Hershey. He is the youngest of three boys, the first to graduate high school, and the only one not to go to prison. He is also the only one to sell a business for more than 1 Million Dollars. Matt broke the mold of poverty and bounced back from selling his only car on the streets of Washington DC for $50 in 1997.
Matt’s story is inspirational and relatable. As a consultant now since 2018, he has realized his passion which is to help small business owners get more word-of-mouth referrals. He published a book on the subject and his latest book is all about doing business with people who bring you joy.
Matt believes in providing massive value for your audience/listeners and will provide them with actionable learning objectives that are simple to implement in their lives and businesses and will never outright sell anything. He’s a relationship builder at his core and believes firmly in giving without the expectation of getting anything in return.
