From Zero To Hero And Back Again with Matt Lillie

Our guest on the podcast today is Matt Lillie. Matt is a serial entrepreneur in the real estate, healthcare, and education space. He is currently focused on bringing business leaders together to use business as a catalyst for positive change in the world. He’s also the host of the incredibly successful Brightvibe podcast.

In today’s conversation, you’re going to hear some very personal revelations from Matt as he describes his business journey from zero to hero and back again. He’s not afraid to get down and dirty with stuff you don’t often hear successful leaders talk about in public forums. He shares in depth about his dark night of the soul, how it affected him personally, and what he learned to help himself break through to begin to find his way back to life again.

You’ll hear how you can use your business experience to evolve yourself, navigate your own “dark night of the soul” and hear Matt’s sage advice about recognizing those moments of fear and discomfort that can derail us. It was so inspirational just listening to Matt being so honest and vulnerable, I think there are lessons for every leader here, to not allow false impressions to define you. And what’s refreshing is, despite his deeper purpose he doesn’t negate the money in business, he shares freely how he wants to make a lot of money, in fact, he wants a private electric jet as he knows that purpose and profit are not mutually exclusive.

If you are interested in your own evolution, growing personally and professionally, then I encourage you to listen to this deep dialogue for insights. I suspect you’ll enjoy Matt's perspective on what we can do to grow and make a difference in the lives of others. I think you’ll enjoy this conversation as much as I did.

Key Takeaways

  • Matt’s unique business and leadership journey has shaped his approach to life in unexpected ways
  • The importance of collaboration and the power of one conversation to change the world
  • How he has been able to be more authentic in his relationship with God
  • How he feels about the challenges the world is facing right now
  • How personal and spiritual transformation can be achieved through taking the initiative and committing to making a difference for those around us.

Memorable Quote

“It's not about changing a whole organization. It's what am I doing to impact that one person's life? And if I can impact that one person's life, then guess what? My life's impacted too”—Matt Lillie
