The courage it takes to tell a story like Matt's over and over again in front of audience after audience, and ensure other people learn from his mistakes is just amazing. It truly takes courage to open one's self up so deeply and honestly.

After hearing Matt's talk the word heart comes to mind because he just has such passion and really spoke to the audience from his heart. He shared his life story and some of his most intimate moments and struggles.
