Happiness Happens

Oct 22, 2019

At 39 years old, Matt Newman, a financial services wholesaler and father to three small children, was diagnosed with grade three astrocytoma - brain cancer.


Through his journey, Matt wrote a book called Starting at The Finish Line. In this episode, Matt and I chat about his battle with cancer, the impact it had on his life and family, and ultimately how his perspective shifted.


More specifically, we talk about:

  • Paving your path and mastering your craft
  • Owning your life and your legacy
  • Battling loneliness while on his journey with cancer
  • How his journey with cancer impacted his perspective
  • The gift cancer gave him
  • The power of support systems 
  • How the idea for his book, Starting at The Finish Line, was born
