He is also a Master Practitioner of NLP, a Master Practitioner of Time Dynamics™, and a certified Master NLP Life Coach with expertise in the fields of health and wealth. He is also an authority on addictions and peak performance athletics.
Matt is the author of the bestselling book Total Freedom From Addictions, which puts an unprecedented perspective on the very idea of what it is to be an “addict,” and shines new light on how most of us think about obsessive-compulsive behavior. Total Freedom From Addictions is a must-read for anyone who has, or knows someone who has, ever struggled with the idea of any type of addiction.
Still part-owner of Outlook Network, a financial company, Matt has stepped down from the day-to-day operations. What was his passion for nearly a decade is now owned and operated very effectively by the former top-producing agent and new CEO. This enables Matt to pursue his career as an author and international speaker, and allows him to lead seminars in the area of personal development.
Matt lives in Orange County, California, where he enjoys staying very active between speaking engagements and therapy sessions. You can find him constantly cycling or running as training for climbing mountains and adventure races. He can be reached by email very easily at: Matt@evolutionseminars.com.
