56 Matthew Pollard – The Rapid Growth Guy Edit

Matthew Pollard The Rapid Growth Guy

matthew pollard the rapid growth guyMatthew Pollard came to Austin TX and the US via Melbourne, Australia where he had been wildly successful in outbound sales. So successful that he had built 5 multi-million dollar businesses before he was 30! He grew tired of running a staff of 50 plus and decided to focus on inbound sales.  His drive came from the building of the businesses and not the running of them. Matthew Pollard the Rapid Growth Guy, found his passion was to help others build rapid growth companies rather than build them for himself.

Within the last 12 months Matthew has launched his website and achieved International Sales Blogger Hall of Fame status, launched his Twitter and is now the number 43 rated business coach to follow and his podcast Better Business Coach reached New and Noteworthy within 24 hours on three continents in audio and video format.

Matthew is motivated by what he loves and not by money. Seeing others succeed through his rapid growth strategies is what gets him up in the morning.

Matthew Pollard – Define What Success Means to You

Matthew has his clients write down three measurable and time-based business goals and three personal goals with one being incredibly selfish because that is that one that is going to drive you.

Then summarize your goals in 250 words including why it is important to you. This is where you will discover what is truly important and what you only thought was important. This is vital to your success according to Matthew Pollard the Rapid Growth Guy.

Having your goals quick and easy to read is absolutely vital. – Matthew Pollard


Overcoming Obstacles – Matthew Pollard

Matthew Pollard shares how he breaks his barrier for reading and writing. Matthew had a reading and writing speed of 6th grade when he graduated high school. To overcome his reading difficulties, he listens to 3 audio books and 30 podcasts per week. Matthew writes a huge amount of content and uses a text to voice technology to review it to overcome his inhibitors. If Matthew can overcome his reading and writing difficulties, he says anyone can overcome their own difficulties.

Matthew lost his first job out of high school right before the 3 week Christmas Holiday. The only job he could find was a challenging commission only sales job. Matthew was highly introverted but his back was to a wall and he needed to make money. He knocked on 93 doors before making his first sale. When he realized he had to do it all over again the next day he had an epiphany that he was in charge of his own destiny.

Matthew says to stop making excuses because you are not gifted. Sales is not a gift, it’s a learnable skill. Marketing is not a gift it is a learnable skill. Knowing what you want in life isn’t something that you have been blessed with, it takes work. We all have skills that we are stronger in. We should not make excuses for our weaknesses, we should just go out and acquire them.
