MATT THERIAULT, is former Marine or should I say Marine because they say once a Marine always a Marine, behind both the Your Do Over and Epic Real Estate Investing new media shows. He is a fifth-generation California native and served during Desert Storm (USMC). After his tour of duty, he resumed my pursuit of a career in music of which ultimately added up to fifteen successful years. Year after year, his music business was growing and maintaining a steady momentum until the advent of the digital download caught the music industry off guard and quickly put him, out of business. As the song title states “Video Killed the Radio Star,” in Matt’s case… the digital download killed the CD distributor but there is more to the story so let’s get right to the conversation with Matt (listen into the audio).
BLUF: Just take the first step and you will eventually get there; but be firm on your decision on what you want to do (This show has motivated me and I’m sure it affected Glen).

ADMINISTRATIVE NOTE: Matt Theriault was a Marine (once a Marine always a Marine) so he fits into this weeks group of military related shows. He was one of my first interview so my sound was not great and my format has evolved, but this was an excellent interview and it is worth listening to, especially the last five minutes, and especially if you are just getting out of the military.
