Fired Up! – Bonus Episode

Fired Up! Season 2 is coming soon. The guys will be interviewing some huge guests, including a Startup Millionaire, a huge TV Producer and the biggest Adult film Star on the planet. Stay Tuned! In the meantime here’s Matt and Alex telling their stories about getting fired from corporate america and moving to LA to pursue a career in entertainment. 


  • Matt used to work for the largest law firm in the world.
  • After subsequent weeks of partying and slacking off at work, Matt fell asleep one morning under his desk at work. His boss found him with 2 different shoes on and knew he had been out drinking. This was during a meeting where the firm was closing a Billion dollar deal.
  • After billing for about ¼ of the hours his colleagues were billing for, Matt’s managers asked him what he wanted to do with his life. They offered him 4 months severance to go find a new gig.
  • After trying to caddie, Alex got fired on the first day after he couldn’t find his golfers ball.
  • Alex played a big prank at work, got caught and got fired. It ended up being the best thing that happened to him.

The Takeaway: You have to take the leap into what you want to do. The longer you put it off the harder it will be. It takes courage, but in the end you won’t regret trying to pursue your dreams.
