#336: Matt Lesser: Overcoming Adversity

In this episode of the Follow 2 Lead Podcast, we have the privilege of sitting down with an extraordinary leader who has faced and conquered immense challenges throughout his life: Matt Lesser.

At the age of 23, Matt's world was turned upside down when his father revealed he was leaving to be with his second secret family in Florida and handed over the family business to Matt. Overnight, Matt found himself thrust into the role of business owner at a young age.

By 24, Matt had to make the difficult decision to shut down the family business and start over with just three employees. Despite this setback, he persevered, and by the age of 34, his new business had grown to over 270 employees and was eventually sold for millions.

However, success didn't shield Matt from the internal battles he faced. At 42, he found himself battling a dark night of the soul and sought help through counseling. Now, at 50, Matt is using his experiences to help others as the founder of his own leadership consulting firm, determined to prevent fellow leaders from succumbing to the same fate he once faced.

Join us as we delve into Matt's remarkable journey of resilience, perseverance, and transformation. Through his story, we'll uncover invaluable lessons about overcoming adversity, prioritizing mental health, and finding purpose in the face of life's challenges.

Let's learn together how to turn adversity into opportunity and lead with courage and compassion.
