About me...

Hello everyone, and welcome to my blog! Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Matt Brown. Maybe you think me a bit bold in calling myself THE Matt Brown. Allow me to explain…

My given name, Matthew, is one of the most common male names in North America. There are nearly 1 million Matthews in the United States alone. My surname, Brown, is even more common, and according to wikipedia is currently the 4th most common surname in the US.

What all of this means, is that there are a lot of Matt Browns out there. As you can imagine, this makes for some humorous encounters. I once had a visit with my Doctor and then to the lab for some blood work. The kind lady at the lab looked at the paperwork, looked at me and said “You’re not 14 years old, are you?” I don’t think you want to know what the visit was about, but let’s just hope, for that kids’ sake, that somebody at the Doctor’s office realized the mistake.

I am still waiting for the day that some other Matt Brown commits a heinous crime and I get arrested for it by mistake. Me: “No, I’m innocent! You want the other Matt Brown!” Police officer: “Right…”

One of my dreams has always been to work for myself. I have tried my hand at a few different businesses, and I have learned a thing or two (despite a bruise here and there). I currently work full time and have 2 successful part-time businesses on the go (an electrical contracting business and a yard care business). I now know very well what works and what doesn’t. As you can see by my full time job, I have not yet become an “entrepreneurial guru”, but I am very good at keeping my little companies going, and I want to help you become successful too. My goal in the near future is to become my own full-time boss, and to help you towards whatever your business goals are.

Take a look around, read my articles, leave some comments, and please feel free to ask any questions. No need to be lonely when we reach the top, so follow me!


  1. Matt,
    I have to pull your chain, but just for the fun of it.

    You say there are a million Matts in the US and Brown is 4th most populous last name in the US. But you are in Canada.

    That'll be only... what? 4 or maybe 5 Matts in Canada? Oh, that's right; you name your bears and deer.

    snicker snicker..... sorry - I just had to do it.

    1. 5 Matts in Canada means almost 50% of Canadians are named Matt! ;)
