What should we know about you? Tell us a bit more about yourself.

To be honest, I’m really just your regular everyday guy. I’ve been fortunate enough to live a beautiful life filled with memorable experiences from my past. I’m very fortunate those experiences have led me to the space of accomplishments I’ve achieved today. Those achievements include a successful book and a startup, My Patriot Supply, a leader in emergency and survival preparedness.

What can you tell us about the book by Matt Redhawk? Where can the audience go to purchase it?

My Patriot Supply is one very near and dear to me as well. It’s a direct reflection of me and my need to always be prepared in case of any sudden crisis. We offer necessary emergency tools, high quality food and heirloom seeds at prices that won’t break the bank.

Having your experience with business, what advice can you give new entrepreneurs in dealing with customers?

Things get tricky with customers, but above all, construct a vision for customer service, be attentive, learn and smile. Today, we deal with technologies and everything is computerized, these tips make customers feel that human element. Bad customer service will make a great product fail, but great customer service can make a mediocre product better.

So much, but to round it up, I’ll have to say have a burning passion, vision, knowledge, courage and confidence. I believe success in entrepreneurship requires these traits and if you already possess them, you’re well on your way. There’s no way of my making it this far without recognizing and finding these within myself.

What do you do for fun and to relax?

Matt: That’s a great question. When I have the chance to relax, I do enjoy listening to music and podcasts as I hike. One of my favorite hiking trails is the Parker Ridge. Beautiul sites, relaxing, and alone with my thoughts. Sometimes it’s where I get my inspiration from.
