    Hey Matt, You’ve got an incredible message and vehicles for delivering it. Kudos on the yoga as well! This is one of the rare interviews I’ve heard where the interviewee said nothing was holding them back. Even when we know it BS, there are still voices in our heads telling us the reasons we can’t do things. If you’re ADD, you definitely have a system for being productive in spite of it. Being 52 I’m not in the sweet spot of your demographic but I still see a WHOLE lot of stuff I can learn from your sites and will be checking them out. Jeff

        Hey Sara,

        Thanks for the data. I figured I was on EOF’s radar. Do you have the % data for my demographic? Just curious because I know entrepreneurs span a huge segment age-wise. With so many people raised as I was to finish school, get a REAL job (hahahaha), work there forever then retire, I’m sure there’s a TON of people my age reconsidering their lives and careers.

    Big up to Matt! A ton of Insightful takeaways here. The Under 30 Experiences concept is a brilliant if I must say too. Nica is such a beautiful country and we need more leaders with a world view to better understand the challenges of living and working in a global economy. John, you’re always on point per usual sir!
