Matthew greatly disliked school when he was younger, his favorite place at school when he attended was the cafeteria. Even at this age he had a very strong view of working for the rest of his life, especially working for someone else. Matthew had only been an IBO for a very short time before attending his first Major Function with his sponsor.
He was blown away with what he saw and heard and announced to his sponsor that he would be a Diamond.
In this Audio Mathew urges IBOs to set their goals and not let anything side track them.
