Hi, my name's Matt D'Avella and
I help people live up to their potential.


I graduated college in 2010 with $97,000 in student loan debt and did the smartest thing I could think of at the time. I bought a brand new car.

Back then I was living in my parent's basement in New Jersey while trying to make it as a professional filmmaker. At my lowest point I had $13 in the bank. Then I plugged my finances into a net-worth calculator online and realized I actually had negative money.

I wasn't happy with where my life was going, so over the next couple years I became obsessed with turning things around. I read self-help books & listened to every cheesy Tony Robin's audio tape I could find. I discovered minimalist, redefined my idea of success, grew my business and within five years I paid off every last loan. Even the new car.

Then in 2016 I completed a lifelong dream to direct my first feature-length documentary. It was a long journey but I managed to work my way through it. Now I'm passionate about helping other creatives get un-stuck.

Trying to build something meaningful from the ground up can be incredibly daunting, especially when you're doing it alone. I want to help you create the life you want, love the work you do & make a big impact along the way.
