Matt Shoup was born an entrepreneur. At the energetic and determined age of 9, Matt started his own neighborhood lawn mowing and snow shoveling business. From there he peddled candy out of his middle school locker, only to have that business shut down by the school.  Matt founded M & E Painting with the last $100 he had to spare. In a few short years, Matt grew M & E Painting to a multi-million dollar company. Matt is a keynote speaker and coach and has spoken to thousands of international youth and entrepreneurial groups in English and Spanish. “Become An Award Winning Company”, Matt’s first book, was published in 2011 and Matt has plans to release a second book in 2014. Matt finds great joy in spending time with his wife and two children.

Have you ever uttered any of these phrases? What if we told you that they were all lies??

I’m not where I thought I’d be at this point in my life.  I thought I’d be farther along.  I thought I’d have a better job, a nicer house.  I’d be respected in my field…and now I’m not working in the field I thought I would be!”

“I’m just too busy to chase my dreams…there’s no way that I could ever start doing what I really want to do, I have too many responsibilities, too many bills.”

Even if I knew where to start, I couldn’t possibly chase after my dreams–it wouldn’t be responsible!  My spouse and children are counting on me!  It’s just not possible to do what I love to do–no one ever really gets to do what they love doing.”

“My life’s pretty good.  I should just be grateful for all that I have!  At least I have a job! It’s selfish and foolish to think that I could ever actually achieve those dreams I had when I was younger…


Project: Success helps you reconnect with your dreams.

  • Reconnect with your passions and dreams and learn the questions to ask yourself to narrow down what you really want to be doing.
  • Learn to recognize, confront and overcome the mental roadblocks that we all face when chasing our dreams and goals.
  • Take control of your personal development and leverage your experiences to get promotions, secure a new job and transition into work the work you were born to do.
