Today's special guest is Matt Haycox, the host of The Matt Haycox Show podcast. Matt is the embodiment of entrepreneurship and in this episode, he shares the ups and downs of his entrepreneurial journey and what he learned along the way. From a young age, he knew that he wanted to be rich and understood that to get there he needed to be a business owner. To pursue his dream of becoming his own boss and making millions he delved into business books, tried various entrepreneurial ventures, and eventually joined his dad's uniform business, turning it from a significant annual loss into a profit.
After three years in the uniform business, Matt ventured into the world of leisure and, eventually, strip clubs. He aimed to change the image of strip clubs and found success by opening his first club "Wildcats" in the UK. Over the next five years, he expanded his business empire, becoming a lender, property developer, investor, and father. However, in 2008, he faced financial challenges during the credit crunch and lost everything, including personal bankruptcy and he goes into how that all came about.
Undeterred, Matt rebuilt himself by building a strong network, seeking mentors, and learning from his past mistakes. He transitioned from a borrower to a lender, operator to advisor, and investment seeker to investor, funding and supporting the businesses of tomorrow using the lessons learned from his past.
"If you have a business that needs funding, a problem that needs solving, a network that needs growing or a potential mistake that needs avoiding"…… Matt's your man!
