I have attended private sessions with Matt, along with a six week workshop, and have come away each time feeling more empowered to make my life better. The tools that he gives and the principles he teaches are simple and truly have had a positive effect in my life. The way Matt teaches makes it fun and makes so much sense. I wish I would have had this knowledge many years ago as it has helped in my relationships in all aspects of my life and has made me a better mother, a better friend and a more confident person. Matt and what he teaches is truly AWESOME!!!
The things we have learned from you have totally changed our lives. We have revamped every aspect of our relationship and our pattern of living. I love what I am learning in the workshops. Matt has done a great job at organizing it all in a way that's more concrete. I like the simplicity of the workbook too. Any way, I am really enjoying the workshops. Sometimes...I listen and think to myself, ”Getting rid of a little bit of selfishness can go a long way.”
I just have to tell you that you have made an amazing difference in our family. Because of what you taught us, we totally changed the way we spend time together and turned it from a time that we dreaded into a time that was unique and special for all of us. You are a miracle worker
I am very impressed. I knew your teaching would be great, but it was even more incredible than I thought it would be. You are so fun to listen to and the things you teach are so “right on target.”
