It’s a question I hear a lot.
Usually either after an event or someone who’s followed my story for a while and knows that I spent 5 years struggling before I got full-time and at one point was homeless, living out of my little red Honda Civic.
“Matt, how does it feel to have ‘made it’?”
Well, first off, I don’t feel like I’ve ‘made it’ because I feel like I still have so much farther to go.
But in general, it’s about like I figured it would be.
- Freedom is freaking awesome.
- Sure there are leadership issues.
- Sure I’ve had plenty of ups and downs.
- Sure you have bigger challenges when you take on a major leadership role.
I’m human so I’ll admit that, after a decade of being a millionaire, sometimes I take it for granted. But thankfully I’m pretty good at reminding myself how good I have it and I kick myself in the ass for bitching.
