"The path to success is paved with failure and stumbling." - Matt Heinz

Matt Heinz comes from a working family. His Grandfather mowed his lawn until well into his 90s, so it was instilled in him that you just Get S*** Done.

Matt has owned his own business, Heinz Marketing, for quite a few years. Admittedly, he's just figuring it out as he goes, trying to pay the bills and feed his family. He also doesn't wait until he's "ready" to do something. As he said during the show, "to this day, there are at least 3 things in my life that, if I had waited until I was ready, I never would have done it -> get married, have kids, & start a business."

So if there's anything you're waiting to do, STOP WAITING AND DO IT!

Matt also carries with him several years of public speaking. He'll be the first to tell you that, when he started out, he was horrible & made every mistake in the book. His slides were too wordy and he talked too fast. But he kept at it, kept practicing, and kept offering to speak in front of local groups such as non-profits and chambers of commerce, noting that you don't have to have an "in" to be considered to speak at an event. Go and reach out to people! As Matt said, "If you have something interesting to say, if you've got a good point to make that's valuable to a particular audience, put yourself out there and don't worry about making it perfect."

Lastly, and this was the most eye-opening part of the show, I asked Matt if he has ever had to fight that urge to quit and he responded, "All the time."

Check out how Matt Heinz Gets Shit Done and listen to the end as Matt has his own "Walk-Up" song when he arrives at the bar!!!
