HOP #52: Why you need to watch out for purple sweaters with Matt McWilliams


The Happiness of Pursuit Podcast – Episode #50 with Matt McWilliams

Why you need to avoid Purple Sweaters

We all need to be pushed into the deep end once in a while…

I had an opportunity to talk with Matt McWilliams a few times before having him on the podcast, as well as participating in a number of affiliate launches for some of his clients. For those of you who don’t know what an affiliate launch is, he explains it around the 5-minute mark of this episode, but for those reading, it is essentially a team of people (affiliates) who are paid a commission for promoting your product.

Matt’s story blew me away because the big aha moment when he knew he needed to build his own business came down to a purple sweater!

Most of his life, Matt dreamed of becoming a professional golfer. Something he did accomplish, but not something someone could live on, at least not well. When he was a kid, he and his close friend Hunter, often joked about how terrible it would be to fail at professional golf and end up teaching golf lessons to elderly women wearing purple sweaters…well as you can guess by the title of this show, that day came and it set off a chain of events for Matt that turned his life from frustration to a life of abundance and having the opportunity to work with one of his dream mentors (to hear Matt tell this story, skip to the 8-minute mark).

Everyone on life has that purple sweater – for many, it’s the 9-to-5, and missing out on quality time with their family. Don’t wait for the purple sweater – go build your future today.

What you will learn on this episode of The Happiness of Pursuit Podcast:

  • How to build a six figure side business
  • The importance of jumping into the deep end (not dipping your toe in the water)
  • Understanding that life is not about money
  • Why you need to monetize your passion and find a way to live your vacation


Matt has graciously put together some incredible bonuses for you that will include his Guide to Affiliate Marketing, How to earn $100K, and his Guide to getting Affiliates to Promote your products (all insanely valuable stuff).
