So there I was, staring at the gun. It was pointed at my face.

“How rude!” I thought to myself. But inside I was shaking with fear.

“This is really gonna hurt,” I heard myself say.

The guy holding the gun just laughed.

Wow, not good.

I gotta get out of here.

———Fast forward three years———>

My life has been a whirlwind in the last three years.

- Major mid-life crisis. Check.

- Divorce. Check.

- Nearly completely destroyed business. Check.

- Depression and suicidal. Check.

- Gratitude, finding and loving myself, new awesome relationship, exploding business, awesome life…

Check, check and check.

Yep it’s been a wild and awesome ride.

As I look back on the day when the gun was pointed my face, I see a major missed opportunity.

But if I didn’t have the last three crazy years I wouldn’t have even seen that day as pivotal.

“Wait, what? A gun shoved in your face isn’t pivotal?”

I know I hear you. Seems like it should be.

But at the time it just wasn’t. I was so engulfed in self-hatred at the time I couldn’t see incredible things right in front of me. I was living in a serious mental fog.

That day was pivotal because that was the day I decided to launch my own secret society.

I’ve studied secret societies for most of my life. It all started when I was a very young. My dad gave me a book titled “None Dare Call It Conspiracy.” I was immeditately hooked and since that time I’ve studied all these “secret societies” in extreme depth.

From that time forward I’ve hated how those secret societies and the REAL one-percenters run the world at our expense.

But then three years ago I had a brilliant plan. Why not start my own?

My good friend Doug Allen and I concocted the whole thing. It was an amazing plan…until…

…I lost my freakin’ mind and went off the deep end.

But now I’m back and better than ever and I’m launching that secret society now!

AND BIG!

This society is called “The Automati.” (Guess its not secret anymore. Damn.)

You’ll hear a lot more about it in the coming days and how you can join.

Stay tuned,

Matt “Illuminati Copier” Trainer

P.S. OK this is the “PS” part of the post where I give sidebar comments. I can’t think of anything today but I did find this cool video.

Really brings back old memories…  :)

Yes the gun story is true.

The rest of that story coming in next email…

Stay tuned.

I have to admit, I thought Instagram was freakin’ LAME!8191946_f260

My fiancé was always talking about it and I wanted nothing to do with the damn thing.

I’m really not a fan of social media as it is, but finally listenting a testing a bit…

I really think she’s onto something.

Now just a few weeks after getting started with it I’m an addict.

I’m not afraid to admit it, Instagram is BAD ASS!

A year ago I was talking smack about hashtags.
(Still seems dumb to me but man they work.)

My fiance showed me how to get in front of the right audience for my custom car and motorcycle business.

Then seemingly out of the blue, one of the best custom automotive fabricators in the world reached out to me.

Then just a few days ago Jay Leno’s right hand man and “car guy” contacted me via Instagram and wanted to talk to me about my shop.

Not about marketing. He’d never heard of me. He wanted to talk about my shop.

Guess this stuff is legit?

It’s stupid simple to get this level of engagement. I did ZERO marketing. I just showed cool pictures from my shop.

It really is “Marketing For Dummies.”

Get the free training she did for me here.

Talk soon,
Matt

P.S. Since Instagram is such a visual medium, I’m applying what I’ve learned to everything automotive.
Not many people know this, but I’ve owned a few car lots and custom car shops in my life.

If you know the ropes, the car business can make you a LOT of money really fast.

My buddy did a cool course on how he makes millions buying and selling high end used cars.

Check it out here >>>>

It’s the PERFECT business for Instagram too because the visual part does all the marketing for you.

Again, marketing for dummies. Just put the two together and you have something very cool and really simple.

Get the free Instagram training here and the Zero Down Car Millionaire course here.

Oh, and follow me on Instagram at @quantumcustoms too!
(I mainly only post cool shit from around my shop.)

What’s going well?

March 3, 2015

In today’s world most people only focus on the negative. The “missing” pieces. The “scary” stuff. The stress-causing crap around us every day. I just had to stop today and say, “Why is that?” My belief is that 90% of that mindset comes from our mass media. Mass media is all negative, especially the news. […]
