Following the Nudge to Make Big Moves with Will Matthews
In today’s episode,I spoke with Will Matthews, who has taken on the challenge of completing seven Ironman competitions after leaving a successful corporate career to start his own coaching company.
Will shares his journey of starting his own professional development company, the courage it took to take that leap, and the mindset shifts necessary to navigate life’s changes. With insightful discussions on the fear of commitment, the stories we tell ourselves, and the power of taking risks, this episode is sure to spark inspiration and ignite your desire for personal growth.
Will left lucrative corporate leadership roles at the age of 47 to open his professional development company, Matthews Performance Group. Later in life, he completed his first triathlon and followed that with his first Ironman two months later. He has competed in 7 Ironman competitions since then.
This year he became the Colorado State Champion in his age group in the Olympic distance triathon. His book, You’ve Got This! The 5 Keys You Need to Live Boldly and Accomplish Anything describes how to be massively resilient and how to reinvent yourself again and again to live the life that you want. Will is a high-content keynote speaker with a motivational/inspirational style.
