I'm Leaving YouTube

📝 Follow Matt’s Newsletter:
After five and a half years as a host on this channel, I've decided to step away. 'Thank You' are the only two words I can muster. You, this community, have shown me nothing but endless love and support. The video goes into detail about my decision.
I'll be writing a short newsletter twice a month at This is the newsletter I wish my 19 year old self had when I first set out to live a fulfilling life. When you sign you'll receive lessons, tips and tricks from ten years of seeking discomfort.
I'll also be working on the book which will come out in November of this year...but more on that later.
Come follow along on the ride. We're only just getting started :)
Also, make sure to wait till the end to watch our EPIC season trailer.
Love you all,

    Matt, When you use this traditional typewriter it’s like dividing your right hand from your left .... don’t cross over. Maintain the rhythm of typing with both hands staying on each side then you will realize you’re acclimatize the system. It will take a while but soon..... just like your dream ... take it one day at a time. Once again... Good luck and God bless Unforgettable Mae 🇵🇭🇵🇭🇵🇭🇵🇭🇵🇭

    asdfghjkl; That's all you need to remember! That's called the Home Row. Keep your fingers on the Home Row then just go up or down to the top or bottom row to reach for other letters nearby. Then...your typing!!! I am 60 years old and learned in high school from an 80 year typing teacher who timed how many words we could type per minute. Once you use all your fingers...its easy!!! You're a wonderful guy and Id love to introduce you to my 24 year old gorgeous niece if you're single. She has an adventurous and emotional spirit like you. You would not be disappointed. PM me if curious.

I have seen a lot of America but I want to do more. I am 62 years old in 6 days. I dont feel like it. Just take my advice and never ever stop exploring dreams. You might need a small break but, dont stop until you just cannot move. Hugs to all of you.

    I have never commented on any HUbuild channel, but watching you guys over the last couple year does remind me that we can do anything we set our minds to when we seek discomfort. I really appreciate everything your team does for others and the message you send to everyone that watches or hears about all of y'all. I've been though a lot and watching y'all's videos reminde that anything is possible. I really appreciate the advice and tools you have offered people! You guys are an inspiration and especially to me in this time of my life. Thank you!!!😁

    I can imagine Richard Branson's book was quite good but he also ended up suing the UK's poorly state funded National Health Service because he didn't get a contract. He took £2million away from patients :(. To me that is unforgiveable. Best of luck to you but please don't turn into a "philanthropist" if you make it to the big money ;).

    ...Almost brand new to this channel and maybe you've explained this phenomena the left upperish part of your screen I see shimmering blue lights. At one point within the first 8 minutes, the shimmering lights were not present but it looked like a luminous feather or large piece of dust floated down in the background (left side). Are those lights reflecting water or is there an amazing visible energy that is twinkling you on into your future adventures. You and your team seem like good souls. All the best in your new endeavors.
