Matthew Teck: Trust the Journey
Show Notes

Ask most kids who play an instrument what they want to be when they grow up. "I want to be a rockstar," they'll say. Well, our guest today, Matt Teck, got that opportunity! After touring part-time around his sales career, he got the call -- the call that took him to Branson full-time performing in a headline show. We'll get into the details during the interview, but Matt had to get moving on some side hustle after their first pay cut. He takes us through the circumstances that led into a lawsuit against their producer and how he became a Director of Sales in the hotel industry with no hotel experience. Immediately, he walked into a career that takes most experienced hotel employees years to achieve. Let's hear how he did it. 

 We learned from Matt Teck: 

*If you are looking for a job, tell them about your strengths, be honest about your limited experiences emphasizing that this is what will make you moldable to their company’s specific needs.

*Choose a “Victor” attitude over a “Victim” attitude.

*The setbacks in your journey may be the very catapult you needed to get to the next step in your journey. 

*Have the courage to take risks. You will be amazed at where they may take you! 


You can find Matt Teck on his podcast: TeckTalks, where he interviews others who have overcome adversity.
