Interview with Matt Grieve
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
My career path/trajectory has been somewhat “confused”. I went from being a young athlete signing a professional contract and doing a carpentry apprenticeship in the background to play professionally part-time and running a business, to then retiring from the sport and succeeding with my business, and finally arriving at a successful business and venturing into the Arts of modelling and tv.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
I don’t have any interesting stories come to mind. None that I can share publicly anyway! Haha!
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
My biggest regret and advice that I can give to any of my colleagues are, to know your worth and don’t shy away from asking or pricing for the value you provide. Good things will come, you don’t want to busy yourself with things that don’t reward you as you may not have time for the thing that will reward you.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
From early on in my life, my other was my biggest supporter and helped me through many tough times. Nowadays, my wife is my biggest champion. She has my back regardless of the situation and we have a relationship that has stood the test of time. We both have immense gratitude and respect for each other and what we have.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
In small ways yes. The more success I have, the more I can and am willing to give. At the moment I help friends, family, and staff everywhere that we can.
A lot of the time I help without any recognition or knowledge of anyone else. I like it that way. It’s like a Robin Hood type situation except no one knows who the Robin is.
I guess you could compare me to Superman or Batman Haha!
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
If you want the rainbow, you first have to put up with the rain.
This resinated with me and has come to mind many times in my life. I was most used in my sporting career when injuries would happen, it would keep me positive that something good was coming once I get through this hard time.
It has applied to my business many times also.
I think it is one of those quotes that resinates with everyone. We can all pinpoint a time when we dealt with hard times but it opened a door to many good times.
