    Hey Matt, Great video with some awesome ideas! Thanks for putting it out there. You and Roland share some great thoughts. I especially liked the idea of volunteering for a local non-profit. Great way to benefit a cause that you are interested in!

    Hey Chris, I’m glad you liked it! Volunteering on boards as a way to meet people with similar interests. You never know who you are going to meet, or how they can help you advance your goals! Matt

    Great video Matt. Volunteering at the state’s professional association has helped me a lot in my engineering career. I have met some awesome people and picked up a lot about marketing and book-keeping along the way. I am yet to do that when it comes to Real Estate club though. Keep doing a great work.
