Matthew started his first business when he was just thirteen years old. Before he was twenty he started a clothing company, an entertainment business, and an advertising agency. It was around that time, at the age of nineteen, that he began speaking and writing.
Over the past thirty years, he has served dozens of organizations, founded a number of non-profit organizations, served on the boards of others, and started a number of businesses with friends. All while becoming one of the most read authors in the world. His books have been published in more than 25 languages, have appeared on the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestseller lists, and have sold more than 40 million copies.
Throughout his life, he has demonstrated his gifts as an entrepreneur, a social-preneur, and a spiritual-preneur. He believes in the power of collaboration; he is a proponent of the idea that organizations exist to serve people and not vice-versa; and, he holds a firm conviction that we have a responsibility to steward all that is entrusted to us for maximum impact.
These are some of the ventures and organizations that Matthew has an interest in today.
