A mark of an impassioned professional is not only his subject matter expertise and capable effective engagement with his clients, is that this subject wells from within him.

As a result, he always makes sure they go hand-in-hand when making his business decisions. Above all, helping people and giving to those less fortunate is the foundation of Matt’s beliefs.
About two years ago, I began a business venture that led me to work closely with Matthew Poll. I had never owned my own business before and was honestly terrified to do so. I heard horror stories of people losing everything not knowing what they were doing or how to handle problems as they arose. That’s what led me to look for a coach.
I thought all I wanted was a proven entrepreneur to help guide me in the inevitable ups and downs of owning your own business, which I absolutely got with Matt. What I didn’t know I needed/wanted was someone who only sees the most powerful you and helps you understand how to be that person in any situation. It was never only about having someone knew the problems that would arise in my business, life is always happening. It’s having someone there to help you see those problems as opportunities and how you already have everything you need right now. It is only a matter of accessing it.
If you find you want to achieve something you haven’t, faster than you ever thought possible, work with Matt.
Over the last seven months, I’ve received weekly coaching calls with Matthew Poll that have caused me to notice tremendous growth in both my business and personal life. It’s a really powerful feeling to know that someone is in your corner and willing to go to bat for you.
Matthew approaches everything from a standpoint that he is willing assist in any way that he can, as long as you’re willing to take the first step. He’s coached me on things for my business that never would’ve occurred to me on my own. Things such as tracking data, marketing, and HR. All of which have have transformed me and my thinking on how to show up not only in work but in life as a whole.
I barely remember the person who I was this time last year.”
I’ve known Matthew Poll for a couple years now and it has been to my great benefit. Matt is not only a terrific businessman, he is a fantastic person with a big heart.
One of the business traits I admire is his ability to quickly examine a situation, bring it down to its essence and recommend a solution that gets things back on track and moving forward.
Matt, however, does this in a very clever way. He gets by giving. Matt asks questions that lead you to figure out the answer versus telling you the answer. And because that, the fix has more buy-in as well as being is more enduring and sustaining .
I always feel better off and grateful when I’ve been able to spend time and consult with him.
