DTD #41: Raising The Bar of Happiness With Entrepreneur and Spiritual Sage, Matt Winkley

At age 26, with a broken heart and a burning desire to be his own boss, our guest Matt Winkley moved across the country and started asking these big questions:

What would it be like to not answer to anyone?

What would it be like to wake up and create my own time?

What would it be like to chart my own path?

These questions led to Matt starting a multi-million dollar company out of his apartment, which has helped thousands of kids on the autism spectrum get the therapy they need. Throughout his extraordinary life, Matt has realized that the key to being ridiculously and unbelievably happy is to know exactly what you want and why you want it. 

What would a 10/10 look like in your health, your finances, your relationships, and your spirituality? We hope this episode helps you consider these questions sincerely and honestly. 

Join us as we discuss Matt's formula for raising the bar of happiness and why you need to put your dreams back on the table. We also explore Matt's deep spiritual journey into Sufism. He explains how taking off your armor can allow you to experience life in a new way. 

Matt taught us that dreams aren't easy to achieve--but we are all capable of reaching them.
