Matthews advice and support has been critical in securing my place in the Los Angeles market as a ‘Writer/Producer & Editor’, working on some of ‘Falls’ biggest launches, and marketing campaigns including spots for ABC, CBS, Disney, CW, G4, Esquire Network, ‘TruTV’, ‘Soap Net’, & ‘FX’, also including campaigns for the features “21 and Over”, ‘2 Guns’, and ‘This is the End’. After 20 years of experience working with many of the major Australian television networks as a writer, editor and producer I decided to take my career to the next level by heading to Los Angeles. Soon after arriving I realised getting into the Los Angeles market was a much harder endeavour than I first thought. In Australia I had grown relationships and status over many years, with many of the major television stations, and in Los Angeles I had to start again. Matthew’s help has been amazing! He talked me through keeping a clear mind when approaching prospective clients; managing my time to priorities and get the money generating tasks done each week; provided ways of staying motivated to call, what seemed to be an endless number of people each day; and gave me invaluable advise when negotiating complex engagement contracts. Matthew is the essential ingredient to any business that has a great functional skill but lacks the sales, marketing and time management strategies to get the world to know it.
Matthew's Speaking Events
I started with Matthew with a very complex business problem, and in just one session he completely solved it. After three sessions, he completely rebranded my business, and gave me all the tools to connect with my ideal clients. Working with Matthew was the best decision I've made to ensure my online business is a total success. Thanks Matthew!Michael Bruinix2016-05-17
Matthew’s participation to our last Startup Weekend event in Austin, TX was highly valuable! Indeed, his speech at the start of the event was really inspiring. It's exactly the kind of energy participants needed to be pumped up for the weekend. Plus, he also spoke on behalf of the jury to reward teams and was able to convey the right messages to the teams regarding their projects. We hope we’ll get a chance to collaborate again sometime soon!
I found this program to be incredibly helpful. I wish that I had gone through this program when I was a new business owner, so that I could have made the last few years of my life more productive, and I strongly urge any new business owner to take the time to do so. For anyone who doesn't feel like they have the time to do this program, ask yourself if you have the time not to. For me, several hours (plus the additional time I spent in coaching with Matthew) could have saved me several yea...
