    Hi everyone, my name is Matthew Green, i'm from the UK and I am 27 years young, for 26 of those years I've been hiding away, like most people, lost in financial insecurity. I've also been incredibly lazy, my high school years wasted by not turning up often, and leading to low prospect minimum wage jobs. No prospects, crazy spending, spiralling debts and no ambition ultimately changed 12 months ago upon changing my career prospects, I had grown tired of the warehouse/factory work and decided I needed a career change if I ever wanted my life to change.

    I applied for a job working for a pawnbrokers as a trainee and luckily having not known barely anything about the industry got the job. That was the turning point, for a few reasons. My manager at the shop has pretty much become my mentor, teaching me about compound interest, financial freedom and helping me sort out my money. In the space of a year my life has done a 180, I'm now grinding towards financial freedom, i'm paying off my debts as fast as possible to invest my 9-5 money, i'm working on side hustles to give me more cash to start even bigger hustles which I want to make as residual as possible. I've also just created a YouTube channel to document my journey to success.

    I'm also working on my health, loosing weight in the gym and improving my diet which is boosting my confidence even further. A healthy mind is a wealthy mind.

    Ultimately, I have a family, a beautiful wife and a beautiful daughter, i'm hustling for them and to be able to spend the rest of my life with them, not working to make somebody else rich. I have never felt of value, and have never truly believed in anything other than my family, until this past year. We only live this life once, and I want spend it with my family, never being restricted by anything. So here's to freedom, and I very much look forward to meeting you all,

    Health, Wealth, Success,

    Matthew Green

    Congrats, brother. It's tough trying to break out of the 9-to-5 because every thing we do, we have to put intent behind it. You've already pushed through a whole year and that says a lot. Keep up the hard work and be conscious of what you do. I know books, comics, and tv shows were ways for me to runaway from stress and depression. It's not easy, but it's harder to live a mediocre life.

    Cheers to your journey.
