Move the Chains
“The hard thing about hard things is no one has done before what you’re doing.” This quote comes from one of Matt’s favorite books called The Hard Thing about Hard Things by Ben Horowitz. It encapsulates a truth Matt subscribes to, which is we all stare at the same four walls and at times, the work we choose to pursue is going to be hard. There is no playbook for quick success.
Hiring mistakes, productizing opportunities, and finding his agency’s sweet spot are but a few of the many challenges Matt has faced in his sales and marketing career.
“If I’d waited for the ‘right’ moment to get married, have kids and start a business…I’d still be waiting,” Matt says. “Going for it even in the face of a down economy back in the late 2000’s was a big win for me.”
