On this episode, I speak with high performance business owner, Mat Steinwede. Mat controls 6 offices, manages over 150 staff and after 20 years in real estate, is a master at what he does.
But that’s not the phenomenal part. Many will see the above and not know the real back story to it. The fact of the matter is, 20+ years ago, Mat used to be heavily involved in the underworld scene. Dealing, using, standing over people and more. After being listed on the Australia’s most wanted list, and being homeless, Mat knew it was time to turn his life around.
He spent 9 months ‘in hiding’ before a call from a friend prompted him to begin a career in real estate. And as they say, the rest is history. In this podcast, we get deep. It was an honest, raw and very real conversation.
These days, as well as managing his real estate business and speaking from various stages, he is also an avid surfer (getting up at 4:45am each morning to do so), with 6 kids at home also.
