Rachael Newport
They're my friends  •  Author and Editor, Thorsett Publishing and Co-Owner, Thorsett Communications.
He has been one for quite some time. I have learned things from him that have helped me be a better writer and entrepreneur. He has a very p ... ositive approach to life which helps him bounce back when things do not go as planned, as they often do. He learns from those "failures" and moves on to success. He also keeps things real. Something that not all in the field do.

Steven Callender

Out of everyone I've known, Matt has been clearly destined for entrepreneurship. In fact, it's just something I have expected from him since ... he displays all the qualities that would make a great entrepreneur. He is driven, focused, and absolutely relentless once he gets his mind set on something. Matt not only goes that extra mile in every project I see him participate in, he doesn't seem to slow down and the enthusiasm he exerts can be very contagious. He's also extremely intelligent and a very down to earth person to talk to. One of Matt's abilities that I've always admired is his ability to come up with solutions or ideas that most folks wouldn't even think of. He's very resourceful, and I think that is a pretty important trait for an entrepreneur to have.

Matt is that rare individual who is fortunate to have the combined talent of technical skills and creativity...he can envision an idea and t ... hen bring it to life. I've never known a time when he wasn't writing, designing, programming or otherwise engaged in something marketable that would either help or entertain. Matt has had a number of successes and proven his business chops. Additionally, for the last few years he has worked tirelessly on multiple projects, and one particular software concept is his biggest passion. Despite logistical and financial hurdles along the way, he has not given up. Anyone fortunate enough to collaborate on a project with him would experience his dedication and drive to succeed but also his warmth as a person.
Jenna Lloyd
We worked together  •  Certified Hypnotherapist and Master NLP Practitioner, Jenna Lloyd CHt, MPNLP and Owner, Magic Words Marketing.
Matt's vision, tenacity, and passion makes him successful life-long entrepreneur. We first worked together twenty-five years ago and I have ... watched him flourish into a dynamic and accomplished business owner whose achievements are bolstered by his commitment to helping others succeed along the way!

Matt is very creative, intelligent and resourceful. He is great at finding solutions to difficult problems and developing the means so that ... everyone around him benefits from the solution.
Skip Wachman
We worked together  •  Senior Software Support Analyst, Thomson Reuters Elite. Previously QA Software Analyst, QTC.
When Matt and I worked together, he was the go to guru. He could field any question and was the ultimate authority on everything. He would ... deliver his answers / solutions / rulings fairly and timely and in such a fashion to instill confidence and total acceptance. My favorite characteristic about Matt is his imagination and his ability to think outside of the box to arrive at the best possible result. Sometimes I could not see, did not have the vision to realize what Matt seemed to know all along. Without pretense, Matt can channel others down the path to the final destination. If I were to select team-members that would work in synergy on a project, Matt would be one of my first picks for a leadership roll.
Jesse Heindl
