Tim Matthews

Hey, I’m Tim Matthews, Founder of The Powerful Man, it sounds kinda weird to say that. 

Not that I’m embarrassed, I just never planned on being the founder of such a powerful movement (no pun intended) that has taken on a life of its own… it might sound cliche but I stumbled into it…

Around Easter time 2014 I reached my breaking point, and little did I know that my outburst would lead to this! 

Some friends cast me out, others thought I was going insane (literally) and the rest thought I’d joined a cult! 

A little while earlier I’d reached a point in my life where I was sick and tired of wearing a mask.

I am a father, a husband, a business owner and a friend.

From the outside, you’ll see a man who owns several successful companies, travels around the world, has an amazing family, lives a location independent lifestyle… and you’d be right.

What you don’t know is the work I did to get here. You don’t know that trials that I went through in my own life that led me to want to help business leaders like you.

I started coaching back in 1995. Since that time I’ve learned a lot about business owners and even more about myself.

Twenty years ago, I was living the high life or, so it felt. I had recently finished my studies in Electrical Engineering, I was employed by an international finance information company and was making over six figures which is great money for most people let alone someone just two years into their corporate career. I had bought my first property as well as my first car and life was great.

I worked hard, in stressful and high-pressure situations that is the financial world, with loads of overtime and weekend work and when I wasn’t working, I was partying with my friends. This meant lots of alcohol, smoking, junk food and late nights. We lived the maxim work hard, play hard and for that first year I was having the time of my young life.

At the end that year, everything came tumbling down. From being carefree and living it up, my life as I knew it came to a screeching halt. It all started with a bout of food poisoning which should have been over in just a few days, but it turned out to be the beginning of a year of misery and recurring health problems.
