It's been a great pleasure to work with Matt on Turning Inspiration into Action. Matt, you have gone forth and lived life to the full - taking notice when inspiration has struck, weighing that inspiration against the things that matter to you in life and listening to your heart before taking action to turn those inspirations into your daily reality. In your own words, this has taken you on a 'wild ride', and every transformation, be it from pro football player to father, or businessman to author, has expanded who you are and brought you learnings and treasures beyond even your hugely expansive imagination. You dream BIG - and the Universe gets behind you and gives you BIGGER! I know that, like me, readers will love how clear, concise and practical the book is - it strips away 'self-help' jargon and provides a simple process for Turning Inspiration into Action. Simple doesn't mean easy - transformation requires dedication and commitment, of course - but it sets out a sure path. Matt has been down that path before us, and shares his personal experiences in an honest, funny, moving and extremely engaging way. Of course, he's made his fair share of mistakes, and he offers these to us with humility and candour. He's garnered a huge amount of wisdom, experience and pure spiritual treasure while making his transformations too, and he offers these to us with just as much generosity. It has been a great honor to work on this book, and, Matt, I wish you every success with it.

About the Author
Author. Speaker. Entrepreneur. On a mission to improve the health and wellbeing of the world, one person at a time. Founder, HappyLiving.com. Board Member, Fluoresentric.com.
I live on Lake Norman in Mooresville, North Carolina with my beautiful wife and our two daughters.
I graduated from the University of California - Davis where I studied Economics, ran track, and played football. I dedicated my first two years after college to becoming a professional athlete, only to come up short with the unique distinction of being cut from three different teams, in three different leagues: Canadian, USFL, and NFL.
Over the next 30 years, I focused on training myself to become a successful businessman. I was given many opportunities to learn and gain expertise in the various functions required to start, grow, and lead successful businesses.
I have shifted my focus from helping businesses to helping people. On January 16, 2014, I decided to sell my previous company and dedicate my time and resources to researching and sharing best practices for happy living.
I write to inspire others to believe that a better self is always possible - today, every day, for the rest of their lives.
