Why listen to me?

There's a LOT of talking heads on the internet.
99% have never built a single actual business.
Unlike them, I'm an actual builder.
I run two brands and have more than 100 + employees.
I started my first company Demac Media 15 + years ago and sold it in 2018 to private equity group. It had 100 + employees and facilitated over $1 Billion in online sales.
I boot strapped my first company, but I've also raised $30M+ in venture capital for my current companies.
So yah. I've done a bunch of stuff for long enough to feel less stupid (still learning though).
I'm an in-the-weeds operator just like you.

Matt's Book

In 2017, long before the Shopify gurus took over the internet, I wrote a book on eCommerce. I still think a lot of this makes up the essential building blocks for GREAT digital brand building.

This book contains step-by-step instructions to help you plan, build, and grow a profitable eCommerce business.

Anything, Anywhere will show you how I built platforms and marketing plans for some of the largest brands in North America, including my own brands I own & operate today.
