EP. 023 |“My routine is my awareness tool. My tracking tool to tell me when I’m on track, when I’m off track, when do I need to course correct, and when I need to double-down.”

My guest today has flipped over 150 houses in the last six years. He’s Matt Aitchison, creator of 6FigureFlipper.com and an individual who has a unique and inspiring approach to happiness.

Matt’s goal is to be a millionaire in ALL areas of his life. Passionate about showing up as his ‘organic self’ consistently in all 8 of his ‘life gardens’, Matt’s attention to detail and ‘small bet’ testing mentality is an inspiration.

Thanks to his daily routines and methodical tracking, Matt has developed an intense level of self awareness, which helps him know when to course correct, double down, or change tact.

It’s an approach that’s brought him wealth in business, health, relationships, and financially - and a methodology that he shares in this powerful episode.

What youre doing right now in this exact moment was once a stretch for you mentally and physically, but you figured out a way to normalize it. Its just what you do now.

Matt wasn’t always this focused and dedicated to his path..

In fact, it took a nosedive to rock bottom after a college arrest for a physical altercation. This was the wake-up call he needed to start designing the life his organic self craved.

For the last 10 years, Matt has been dedicated to 2.0 himself. Fuelled by a belief that what seems scary can become his new reality, Matt leverages his all in, all out personality to live a full on life.

So if you want hacks and strategies that will help step into your ‘organic self’, this episode is a must watch.

I promise, it’s a doozy!
