Journeys with the No Schedule Man

Apr 4, 2017

Eustan Matthews is a Business Coach, Consultant & Speaker who helps busy entrepreneurs and business owners avoid or escape what he calls “The Freedom Quandary.” At the time of our discussion, he’s taken on a project called “40 Coffees in 40 Days,” designed to meet with a different small business owner on 40 separate occasions and to solve one challenge in their business over a cup of coffee. Like anyone else, Eustan’s story is not without its challenges. Being moved from his home country of Trinidad at an early age left him with feelings and questions he’s had to carry with him since. And, like most of us, his journey has taken twists and turns and has provided opportunities for him to re-examine his path and what he can be doing to best represent his authentic self on a day-to-day basis. I think he’s on to it. Some of the key things I took away from the time with Eustan include: 1. Leaving Authentic Impressions – It occurred me, as I listened to Eustan speak about people in his life, how many impressions are being made and absorbed over the course of a day, a week or a lifetime. We make impressions on so many other people, both good and not as good, without even trying, and these impressions become part of our collective experience, in both how we identify ourselves, and in what we say about ourselves to others. 2. Invest in the person, not in the business (or the numbers) – A wise choice for any business involving human beings, in my opinion. 3. Positivity is a choice – He tells a great story about a time when he asked his wife, “Am I a negative person?” The honest answer he got presented him with a choice as to how he wanted to move forward. I believe he chose well. ©2017 Kevin Bulmer Enterprises
