Who is Matthew Woodward?

Matthew started building websites before Google or YouTube existed – back then he was just a kid delivering newspapers before school to pay for the server.

He had no idea that you could use the internet to make money.  He just loved playing video games and writing which led him to build my first website for people to share their highlight videos.

This was before YouTube.  To record those videos he had to rig his computers up to VHS players and press record, later he had to play the VHS back while recording it on his computer.

I built his skill set with building websites, writing, video production, team management and building communities. In fact, it’s those foundation skills he built as a kid that have enabled him to help thousands of people.
