Although my wife, Kimberly, will tell you I’m a kickass husband, I candidly admit that it hasn’t always been that way.
The two of us got married 26 years ago. I was a hopeless romantic, and I took the art of wooing very seriously. But, as I’m sure you can relate, life happened, and 20 years into our relationship we realized we were far from the vibrant couple we had once been. We were together, yes, but there was no excitement, no investing in each other.
I began making a habit of leaning in to Kimberly, and the two of us began practicing the 3Cs every day. And let me tell you—the last 6 years have been the most fulfilling, most rewarding, all-around best years of my life!
We travel, entertain, do business together. We homeschool our youngest son, and expose each other to new ideas. We grow together spiritually. We’re not perfect, and we fail every day. But we are also 100% committed to each other and we have a lot of fun learning from our missteps.
I believe every married spouses life would be better if they were fully committed to their spouse. I am on a mission to help others live that reality and prioritize their number one relationship.

SPEAKING PROGRAM: KICKASS COUPLES
The 3-C’s of Kickass Relationships
In Matthew’s keynote presentation, he shares the 3 foundational pillars of thriving relationships and explains how relationship success leads to success in all other areas of one’s life.
Anybody who has ever been in a long-term relationship knows how easy it is to let life’s many distractions take precedence.
Matthew’s keynote presentation on the 3Cs reminds us how important (and life-giving) it is to invest in our most important relationships, with a focus on 3 key areas:
- Conflict Resolution
Audience members will leave with a newfound hope and actionable steps for taking their relationships, whether at home or at work, to the next level.
Life is too short not to love the one you're with
Using the 3Cs to fortify your relationship
I know how hard it can be to figure out how to invest in your relationship amidst all of life’s other demands. But I also know how rewarding it can be to do so; when your relationship with your spouse is thriving, it becomes a well-spring of success for all other areas in your life!
I think about my own marriage, and how many mediocre years might have been infused with more happiness and fulfillment if only I’d had the knowledge I do now.
That’s why I am on a mission to teach every couple (or individual) who wants to level-up exactly how to do so. I want to share the tools, processes, and techniques I wished I had—the why and how of investing in one’s marriage.
Most of all, I want to empower others to become Kickass Couples, because life is too short not to love the one you’re with.
