“Being normal is the enemy and being fine sucks.”
Matt Wilson is the Adventurer in Residence at Under30Experiences and Co-founder at Under30CEO. This is his second time on the show and he’s since started a podcast, the Live Different Podcast…where he helps entrepreneurs grow their business, get in better shape, perform at their peak and have more fun.
I wanted to get Matt on the show to talk about living differently, building community and his new podcast, the Live Different Podcast.
(GYSS #11): Matt Wilson – Co-Founder of Under30CEO and Under30Experiences, Building A Mission Driven Business, Importance Of World Travel
Matt Wilson is the co-founder of Under30CEO and Under30Experiences. He graduated from Bryant University in 2008 into a tough economy and never decided to pursue the corporate route. We talk about his journey as an entrepreneur, the ups and downs of running a business and doing work that inspire you.
He’s super well traveled and talks about how traveling has changed his perspective on life and business. I’m going to the Costa Rica trip with Under30Experiences and he talks quite a bit about how to get started with traveling. Here’s a great quote from the episode:
“If you want to take over the world, you better understand it first.”
What’s Holding You Back From Taking The Leap Into Entrepreneurship?
It took me over 7 years of working as an employee before I decided it was time to start a business.
I guess you could say I had a major fear of failure.
But what made me finally take the leap was looking at the potential upside of entrepreneurship. I didn’t realize that there was so much more to becoming an entrepreneur besides it being a way to make more money or to be your own boss.
