Hi, I’m Matt.
My beautiful wife, Julie, and I were recently married and have four kids between us. We live in St. Charles.
Experience: I spent 10+ years working for my dad’s company in Madison, Wisconsin. He built it from the ground up and, naturally, I became an employee myself when I was very young. After school, I was a full-time window washer for dad’s “Radiant Home Service” and was also involved in some of their part-time janitorial endeavors. Dad and I made a go of it until I decided to relocate to St. Louis for some adventure and he up and moved to Wyoming. The man loves his mountains, and he still washes windows out there on occasion.
Character: The only business model that makes any sense to me is to always, always work to earn referrals and repeat business; I just keep it simple and give my clients what they want. I show up, work hard, and it always seems to work out for me in the end. People seem to appreciate honest, hard work, and they tell their friends about it, which is how a business grows.
Plan: Self-employment. My goal is to spend as much quality time with my kids as I can before they’re all grown up. I want to leave a character-driven legacy behind me for them to follow if they wish, or at least from which they can glean something to fuel their own passions. They wouldn’t necessarily have to work for me like I chose to do for my dad, but the option can’t hurt, and working together would afford me more opportunities to continue teaching and coaching them through their teens and young adult lives. Boy, this is getting deep for a window washing website..
My ultimate goal is to someday retire into writing. Mark Twain once said, “It was then that I became a writer; I haven’t worked a day since.” I love to write, if you hadn’t noticed, and I’m blessed to have an off-season in the winter where I get to put some focus there. I like to write about anything that could end up helping someone some day- theology, overcoming adversity, success in relationships, and how I’ve benefited from my own experiences in this small corner of Planet Earth. My hope is to make the most of my life by helping others to make the most of theirs.
