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…

Entrepreneur On Fire Podcast with John Lee Dumas 

 

"Until one has committed, there is hesitancy.  The chance to draw back.  Always ineffectiveness.  Concerning all acts of initiative, and creation there is one elementary truth.  The ignorance of which kills countless ideas, and splendid plans.  That the moment that one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too.  All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred.  A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manor of unforseen incidents and meetings and material substances, which no one could have drempt would have come your way.  Whatever you can do or dream you can begin it.  Boldness has genius, power and magic in it."
