    This is inspirational.  I am not being nationalistic when I say that I completely agree with you that America should be on the top 10 of that list.  I started a blog myself about young entrepreneurship (http://www.tylerwardisbored.com) but it is more about my journey as someone trying to make it in America rather than someone that has.  This is an inspiration to know it is possible for people in Gen Y today.  Thank you for this video.

    I commented below but I messed it up somehow: This is inspirational.  I am not being nationalistic when I say that I completely agree with you that America should be on the top 10 of that list.  I started a blog myself about young entrepreneurship but it is more about my journey as someone trying to make it in America rather than someone that has already.  This is an inspiration to know it is possible for people in Gen Y today.  Thank you for this video.

    Dude this chick is HILARIOUS!!! I’ve been on LOTS of shows and met TONS of major media figures and never have I met someone who puts on the facade of taking themselves 100% seriously… why? because it makes the people you are interviewing not have fun and not be relaxed which means she is not getting the best of her guests which means the people watching are not enjoying the show.  This girl should have been a lawyer I would probably stutter if she asked me what my name is.  Good for her for getting you on the show but dude do not sweat the 7 minute mark stumble this girl has no place on TV unless she’s playing a ball busting lawyer

    By watching the shoulder shrugs she gives when agreeing with Matt, I’d say she is skeptical or has no confidence in what he’s saying at all.  I can’t think of why that would be though…

    Great stuff Matt keep it up, one of the things I’ve always been curious about is how specifically some of the most famous people on the planet became successful. Being so curious, I decided to break it down and created this online magazine: http://www.feelingsuccess.com
