A serial entrepreneur turned investor, Matt is driven by the idea that you don't
have to put your family or your future in jeopardy to start and run a successful
business. A graduate of the #1-ranked undergraduate entrepreneurship program in the
United States, the Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Houston,
Matt graduated summa cum laude with a double-major in finance and entrepreneurship.
After a stint in corporate finance, he founded his first business at the age of 22
and grew that business into a multi-million dollar, industry-leading enterprise
with thousands of products. Over the next four years, he launched and grew three
more multi-million dollar businesses focused on bottom line profitability. Matt is
now hyper-focused on practical things that business owners can do to drive growth
and profitability, which he considers the true measure of any business. Learning
and teaching these practices has become Matt's personal passion and the mission of
Amazing.com. He has authored numerous articles for some of the world's most
respected business publications, including Forbes, Business.com, and Under 30 CEO.
Matt is determined to teach would-be entrepreneurs all over the world how to start
and run a business without making the same catastrophic mistakes as nearly eighty
