He describes the events in his life that redefined his definition of success and discusses his flashpoints and what he now realizes in hindsight. He explains why he left the corporate world as well as the lessons he learned from being part of it. Matt shares how you can reframe pain and resting as part of the processes that help you grow. He also describes some of the lowest points in his life and how he pulled himself back up.
