Hello World. Let’s Do This!

I often ask myself,  “Who do I want to be?” It’s been on my mind for a while. Just like you, I’ve gone through many options: lifeguard, day camp coordinator, yoga teacher, that call center guy, entrepreneur, sales guy, manager, coach, consultant, etc. I even traveled the world and back. You’d think something would stick!?

Hint: what you think you’re looking for is typically no further than your own backyard. In my case, it was nestled securely inside my heart between fear of success and self-consciousness.

Who Do You Want To Be?

I always wanted to be a computer programmer because I loved strategy games (that was after I decided being an astronaut would require too much math.) Then, I thought being a psychologist was the closest major in college to what I wanted to do. I wanted to figure people out and help them, and unlike astronauts, I didn’t need to take lots of math to be a psychologist =  Bonus!  

However, psychologist wasn’t my true calling but I learned that I love working with people and helping them make sense of what seems to be a crazy new world. This new world is a wonderful place to play, thrive, and live your dreams, but we often forget how powerful we are due to so much information coming at us. I’m here to help you sort through it all. My passion is your passion: creating a great life and feeling good every.single.day. Yes, it’s totally possible.

Today I’m announcing it to the world, to you, and here it is:

Over the next few weeks on this website you’ll see my thoughts and videos on topics related to my new work. I’ve worked with over 30 corporate clients and many more individuals doing team management and leadership development, and after six years being in the thick of it myself and with my clients, I realize I have the gifts necessary to deliver increased profitability and employee engagement which help executives develop their unique leadership style, and the high-performing, globally distributed, culturally competent teams they need to support them.

I hope you’ll get inspired, share my content, and enjoy the ride. Of course, let me know what you think by emailing me at matt@matthewkoren.com. I’ll be in touch again soon!
