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…

by / ⠀Entrepreneurship / February 11, 2015

Hey Under30CEO, as you guys know 2.5 years ago we started a travel company because we realized that there was a lot more to life than just sitting behind a computer working. After a pretty wild ride taking us everywhere from the glaciers of Iceland to the volcanoes of Bali, we’ve now brought hundreds of people to over 10 destinations across the world all to help people truly…

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…

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…

Best Advice Ever: Be Cool with Being Different via @Inc

Hey Under30CEO, For years I spent my life trying to fit in.  I acclimated myself to my surroundings, tried to assimilate to society, and followed the straight and narrow path in hopes I would be accepted by the people around me. If you’ve read Under30CEO for a while, you know by now, I put an end to that noise, and now take pride in doing my own thing. After spending…

Hey guys, as most of you know by now, my mission is to help young people build strong foundations for their lives. What we learn in school, memorizing all those facts, are the basics for academics… but the truth is, our education system doesn’t have a lot of bearing on how well we will do in life, or what we’ll achieve… If what we are trying to do is…

by / ⠀Entrepreneurship Travel / September 17, 2014

I know what you’re thinking: “Oh great, another what I learned traveling the world, detached from real life” post. At this point, we’ve heard all the cliches: “travel changes you,” “helps you seek new perspectives,” “gets you out of your comfort zone…” But here’s the truth: For centuries, man has had incredible curiosity and desire to explore the world… and man still loves writing in moleskin travel journals.…

Why Gen Y Needs to Build Something That Lasts Forever

by / ⠀Career Advice Entrepreneurship / September 11, 2013

I’ve been off the radar for a little bit.  Not writing much…. In the depths of summer, grinding it out in New York City building a company. Sometimes I ask myself, is this for me? This week I lost my voice.  Why?  Because I didn’t sleep much.  I was at the office at 7:45AM, back to back to back sales calls, two meetings, being interviewed on a podcast,…

Zen (Business) Habits: Stop Stressing and Enjoy the Ride

by / ⠀Entrepreneurship Startup Advice / July 15, 2013

I wrote “You’re Already a Millionaire, All You Have To Do Is Show Up”. How many successful people have you heard say: I always knew I was going to be successful? Maybe it’s supreme confidence, or maybe they realized that they were put on earth to do something and executed upon it, but my article came to one important conclusion– if you know you are going to be successful,…
