Matt quit his consulting job in New York City.
Why? he wanted to chase the typical millennial dream of working for himself.
He was thankful for his job, but at the end of the day, he wasn’t fulfilled. Living for the weekends and dreading Mondays didn’t sit right with him. Not during the most important time of his life, his twenties…
The previous year, his grandpa, unfortunately, passed away, his role model Scott Dinsmore passed away at 33 years old, and he witnessed his brother lose several friends (under the age of twenty) to tragic accidents. These events served as another reminder that we are all on a timeline.
He knew he had to make a change…
Without much of a plan, he packed up his apartment and moved to Medellín, Colombia.
He needed to start figuring things out fast. He was fed up with the fluffy, BS self-help advice of 'Follow your passion… Follow your purpose…'.
So, he started reaching out to people who had already achieved the success he was after.
