Matt Morris Story
Matt Morris was raised by a single mother, who he credits as his biggest inspiration, who worked two and three jobs to finish college and law school. In Matt’s early childhood, his father went to prison for murder, then became a severe alcoholic and ended up committing suicide when Matt was thirteen.
His business career didn’t exactly have the most stellar start. After three years as an entrepreneur he found himself, at age 21, $30,000 in debt, homeless, and living out of his beat up Honda Civic. After only two months of living out of his car and bathing in gas station bathrooms, Matt made a decision to radically re-invent his life.
Through a massive commitment to personal development and disciplined work ethic, by age 24 he was earning a six-figure income and by 29 he was a self-made millionaire. Now in his mid thirties, Matt Morris is happily married with three beautiful children.
A self-admitted adventure junkie, Matt Morris has traveled to over 65 countries around the world, has checked off 80 accomplishments on his bucket list, some of which include the highest bungee jump in the world, cage diving with the Great White sharks, paragliding, skydiving, racing camels around the Great Pyramids in Egypt, hiking to Machu Picchu in Peru, zip lining at Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, riding a hot air balloon in Africa over the running of the Wildebeests, and white water rafting in the Andes Mountains.
While Matt Morris has earned millions as an entrepreneur and helped many others do the same, his sense of accomplishment comes not from the money. Matt believes creating wealth is as simple as providing value in the lives of others.
According to Matt, “It’s not the money that creates significance. It’s the person you have to become in order to be a millionaire that matters”.
Matt’s mission in life is to help millions of people live a life with no regrets.

“I was a machinist for almost 30 years and had failed miserably in my efforts to become an entrepreneur on the side. Since learning the techniques Matt Morris taught me, I’ve been able to earn a residual income from home allowing us to live a millionaire’s lifestyle… in the last six months alone, we’ve vacationed to London, Spain, Hawaii, Malta, France, and Italy. The best part about our life is that I’ve been able to be a stay-at-home dad for the past seven years!”
—Ned & Cheryl Rae, Entrepreneur
“Not long after 09/11/01, I was 36 and found myself at an all time low in every area of my life. I had lost my home . . . the company I was working for collapsed, leaving me without a career . . . and
worst of all, my two young girls had just moved east to New Jersey with my ex-wife. I felt like a complete failure and for the first time in my life I got a glimpse of understanding what the handful of people in my life that had committed suicide must have felt like. There was one person above all others who helped me turn my life around. After being mentored by Matt Morris, everything started to change. Within just a few months, I was able to give up the job I had taken and have been increasing my wealth ever since. Because of Matt’s teachings, I’ve been earning a six-figure residual income for the past four years . . . I own five acres in Colorado . . . I’m living in a wonderful condo in Philadelphia with a fabulous view . . . and most importantly, I now have all the time I want to spend with my two daughters”
—Chris Kinney, Entrepreneur
“I’ve had the privilege of knowing and learning from Matt Morris for the past several years.

Just one idea I acted on has turned into more than $40,000 (and growing) of passive income.”
—Kevin Wilke, Cofounder, Nitro Marketing
“At the end of 2006 my life had hit rock bottom. My last business venture had failed unexpectedly and I had no income to support my family. I found Matt Morris and his success system in January of 2007 and my life is now at an all-time high. I am writing this testimonial from my new dream home at the Michelangelo
Towers, Sandton, Johannesburg, the most prestigious high-rise condo in South Africa. I went from zero income in January 2007 to earning a six-figure income in just 18 months thanks to Matt Morris!”
—Soojay Devraj, Entrepreneur, South Africa
“Hi Matt Morris,
I bought and read your book about six weeks ago and I loved it. I’ve read a bunch of similar books and while many are great, I found The Unemployed Millionaire spoke to me more than the others. More importantly, I’d like to share with you the results I’ve experienced in the last six weeks:
- I quit my job as an Account Manager with a digital agency and have already replaced my income through consulting work.
- I created and (soft) launched my own info product and it is doing very well.
- I finally got around to self-publishing a book that I had written a year ago but didn’t do anything with!
Lots more is going on but I don’t want to bore you with the details. Suffice it to say, the $30 or whatever I paid for your book was well worth it. Thanks for sharing your experience.”
—Eric Haaranen, Author of Nice People Can Sell
I have just listened to your 7 Secrets to 7 Figures Audio right now. Originally I thought that the most inspiring person for me was Dr Wayne Dyer (Manifest your Destiny) I was wrong and WOW!! This has really hit home for me.
You are in America (maybe not right now I don’t know, haha) and I am over in South Africa. We have never met or even spoken to each other and yet you have managed to inspire me in every level that will change my life which would also change the lives of the people around me and the people around them, to me that is truly amazing!!
You are a great man, and I really admire what you have done and who you are. I aspire to be like you. You have amazing inner strength and disciplne.”
—Dan Ekerold, South Africa
“Dear Matt Morris,
Since I received your book ‘The Unemployed Millionaire‘ I have not been able to put it down! I am only on page 52 but I have highlighted something with my bright orange marker on nearly every page! I know you probably get emails like this all the time however I felt it important to show my thanks and appreciation to you for putting out such inspirational reading. I have been reading this since Tuesday on the train on the way to work with a bounce in my step a (which is usually very unlike me when on my way to work.) I also have a permanent smirk on my face when I am in the office because I feel as though I am one step ahead of my manager! I will achieve greatness and i am going to change my internal programming! Thank you Matt Morris and good wishes to your young family.”
—Rebecca Forbes, London, United Kingdom
