We’re not slobs but we are very laid back when it comes to trying to keep the perfect home. You know it’s not gonna happen for us. If there’s dishes in the sink we’ll freak out for a second and then will go watch a movie.  Matt McWilliams

The Startup Dad Journey of Matt McWilliams

 

”” I am a world changer. Now before you think I’m an egotistical, too-big-for-my-britches, jerk, I think we are all world changers. If we weren’t born to change the world, we’re unnecessary. I am a world changer. And so are you.In a nutshell, I arrived at my world changer philosophy after being fired four times after facing 42 years in prison, after starting two companies that rose and fell like the Roman Empire…and finally realizing my true purpose in life. Matt was born and raised in the south and currently lives in Fort Wayne, IN with his wife Tara and daughter Aracelli
