An Open Letter to Under30CEO Readers

by / ⠀Blog Entrepreneurship / February 24, 2015

Hey guys it’s Matt. I want to write you a really honest email about the future of Under30CEO…As you guys have probably felt, our community has lost a lot of its luster. What was once a vibrant community of young people trying to take control of our futures has slowly but surely declined. Our attempt to go from a couple bloggers into media company didn’t really work. We launched…

Everything You Thought About Your Purpose in Life is Wrong

by / ⠀Entrepreneurship Travel / January 28, 2015

It’s the challenge of our generation. But is it too late? So many of us have joined the establishment. We were duped into thinking a college degree meant something. We’ve been tricked into debt, justifying it as an investment in our futures. Now, most young people feel that they have to join the “real world”, sign on the line for a paycheck that doesn’t fulfill them, that doesn’t challenge…

How to Stay Sane When The World is Crumbling Around You

by / ⠀Entrepreneurship / January 13, 2015

I’m currently homeless. It’s really not a good look when women ask me where I live. I’ve set foot in six countries so far this year and it’s only January 10th. Wtf, I ask myself? How do I stay sane? How can I create a home away from home that keeps me grounded, healthy, productive, and happy? It all comes down to habits. Forget your external environment– what is important…

How to Have Presence (It’s Simpler Than You Think)

by / ⠀Entrepreneurship Travel / December 16, 2014

Last week one of my best friends asked me a simple question: “Do you think people can be taught to have presence in a room?” After years of studying human interaction, public speaking, hosting events, and looking at things unconventionally, here is what you need to know… Let’s start with confidence. Want to captivate a room?  It starts way before you arrive.  People can sniff out your bullshit and…

My Battle Banishing Stress: Why I Detached From My Business

by / ⠀Entrepreneurship Health & Fitness Travel / November 18, 2014

  Since 2008 we’ve published 4,000+ articles on Under30CEO.com.  I once wore a button up and produced business content like  Stop Waiting and Start Making Decisions. Since then, I’ve gone totally off the grid, (like the last three weeks in Ireland) and what I’m learning is much different from the regular old business jargon.  My titles now read:  How to Take Control of Your Life, or What Bali Taught Me About Life…

How to Take Control of Your Life

by / ⠀Entrepreneurship Travel / October 28, 2014

It’s all self inflicted. Trust me I know. After forcing startup idea, after startup idea, following every trend on Techcrunch, attending every douchey networking event, and living in a city where just trying to cross the street makes you think about how many different ways you could kill someone, I had enough. It’s really unsettling how many people we call idiots or assholes just because we are behind the wheel…

The #1 Reason Most 20-Somethings Get Stuck

by / ⠀Entrepreneurship / July 21, 2014

I can remember, just a few short years ago, when I would have done ANYTHING to get “unstuck”. I had “played the game” just like I’d been told. Went to school, picked a major that made sense, got good grades and followed the rules. (I can see you nodding your head in agreement with me — we’ve all been there.) But as college ended and the real world…

Depression F-ing Sucks! 5 Things You Can Do RIGHT NOW to Overcome It…

by / ⠀Entrepreneurship / July 9, 2014

  Okay, depression really fucking sucks. It’s like doing everything you can, day in and day out, just to have the chance to take a positive step in the right direction. Every day is an accumulation of all the shitty days that came before, piled onto your back like 49 contestants from the Biggest Loser, waiting for you to take them to the finish line. The finish line, of course,…

Magic Ticket to Anywhere: 4 Easy Steps

by / ⠀Entrepreneurship / June 11, 2014

I remember a moment setting in my apartment when was thinking, “Why do I keep going and working for these other people? Why do I keep building up their pocket books? Why do I keep building their dream that they decided to go after and do?” I was like, “Here I am, building someone else’s dream.”  That’s when I asked myself, “Why do I keep doing that?  Why…
