What does it mean to truly be rich? That’s the question today’s guest is answering every day. He is literally redefining rich through his book, his podcast, and his online platform.

Redefining Rich with Matt Ham (Part One)

Matt Ham’s story starts with what he calls a “good life crisis.” Not a mid-life crisis, but a crisis rooted in settling for the American Dream as he knew it.

That led him on a quest to redefine rich using his four principles, which make up an acronym for the word RICH.

R – Recognize you’re broken

I – Invest in others

C – Choose gratitude

H – Humble yourself with confidence.

Those might not make much sense until you listen, but when you do, you’ll be blown away by Matt’s world-changing message. It was so good, that we went for more than an hour, so I broke the episode into two parts. Part one airs today and part two will air next Friday, so come back for that!

About Matt

matt-ham-redefine-rich-bookAfter chasing the world’s version of richness in his own life, Matt found himself empty. Regardless of his material well-being or his financial prowess, he felt a longing for more. Truthfully, he lived a life rooted in comparison; He was trapped in what he calls The Good-Life Crisis.

Life was good, but then again, it wasn’t.

Matt shares stories, thoughts, and ideas that help uncover life that is truly life, thus answering the question:

“Am I living richly?”

Matt Ham is dedicated to guiding others toward rich living. His own experiences have led him to the understanding and freedom of a rich life, and through his RICH Principles he helps folks uncover true richness, identifying real treasure and discovering true joy and contentment.
