Matthew S. Newman, a financial services wholesaler and father to three small children, was diagnosed with grade three astrocytoma (brain cancer) at 39 years old. Matthew’s best-selling memoir, "Starting At The Finish Line," chronicles the journey that he and his entire family took together, which got him to a place of clarity, understanding, and appreciation. The book’s underlying message of why it’s important to get your financial planning in order is both inspirational and actionable.
Now, Matt travels the world as an in-demand, motivational keynote speaker to inspire and connect deeply with each and every audience.
In his free time Matt loves spending time with his family, being dedicated to fitness, and truly appreciating life and living in the now.
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
