EP30: Matt Black, Serial Entrepreneur | Change Maker, be passionate about your business idea, but not attached to it
This is a conversation with Matt Black. Matt grew up in an aboriginal community in the Australian Outback. He didn’t wear shoes until he left home at 14, but at 17 he started a logistics business which he sold at 19 for the equivalent of £3.4M in today’s money.
He was worth $70M by 29. Lost everything and was flat broke at 30. By age 31 he was a multi-millionaire again and to date has launched and exited 6 different businesses. As an Author, his 1st book ‘The Little Black Book for Entrepreneurs’, which was written in 4 days, has sold over 1.3M copies.
In this episode, Matt charts the journey of a start-up entrepreneur. How to get others to buy into your idea, how to scale, and how to know when it’s time to step aside.
