My name's Matt Nathanson and I knew from my very first job at Mr. Suds Car Wash when I was 16, that I wanted to be the boss and make the rules. But like most people I took a corporate job out of college, so going into work every day felt a lot like combing my hair the wrong direction.
My sales goals were constantly changed to benefit my former employer, coworkers regularly stabbed each other in the back, I had a miserably long commute and zero passion for the job. So, my experience working for Wells Fargo was a negative one, but it helped me identify the things that are truly important, like autonomy and self-reliance, integrity and loyalty, perseverance and the confidence to live a life of purpose.
In 2002 I tore my pec while bench pressing at the gym and not long after that, I began to have serious issues with my spine and nervous system. I became totally disabled by the end of 2004 and quit my financial planning job to go onto disability. Drugs and surgeries hurt more than they helped, so I began to examine my mind and that started my lifelong journey of self-discovery and spirituality.
Some of my favorite teachers are Eckhart Tolle, Abraham Hicks, Michael Singer, Wayne Dyer, David Hawkins, Murdo MacDonald Bayne, Marianne Williamson, and many more. I went back to school and became ordained as a minister of metaphysical sciences, and began to officiate weddings part-time toward the end of 2008.
The issues with my spine and nervous system make it difficult to get a regular job. Plus, I wanted diversify our income so I searched the internet, looking for legitimate ways to earn a living online from home.
I failed at three different online business ventures before having my big epiphany. Don't you love 'light-bulb' moments? I suddenly realized that I kept failing because I was trying to do it alone. I'd always had football coaches, academic tutors, a guitar instructor and even a meditation teacher, so it only made sense to find an online business guide too!
I met some really great mentors who introduced me to a community of people just like you and me! Not only are we learning the skills needed to support ourselves online, but we’ve found purpose and are expanding who we are as individuals. It’s a place of lifting ourselves and each other up and into happiness, health, and real wealth. I don’t feel defeated and alone anymore, so my mission is to bring an open heart and mind into every interaction, to be an example of purpose, perseverance and progress, and to help others find the courage to reach their full potential. Hopefully that’s you!
