After graduating college, Matt LeBris spent three years working with Daymond John of ABC’s Shark Tank. Now Matt is the founder of 1B Branding (a branding agency in NY City), the host of the Decoding Success Podcast, and speaks in front of audiences across the U.S. – all of which propel him closer to his goal of positively impacting the lives of one billion individuals.

On this episode, Matt shares the successes and challenges that he’s faced in his life, including:

  • How he turned a 5 minute conversation with Daymond John into a job offer
  • His earliest entrepreneurial venture at age 12, when he opened a “restaurant” selling his parents’ groceries on the corner in Queens – until his parents found out about it
  • His struggles in school – getting kicked out of two high schools and failing out of college, but eventually graduating college with honors after 7 years
  • Losing his athletic dream (and all his college scholarships) during his senior year of high school
  • Turning his “18th birthday party” into a revenue-generating opportunity
  • How he discovered the concept of legacy over currency, and why it changed the focus of his life
