Reena loves a story, and she‘s fascinated by the people behind them. In fact, she loves to bring stories to life. Her appetite for storytelling has taken her from the Jerry Springer Show to the legal drama of the courtroom. From influential players to reality stars, nothing is censored here. Reena interviews people whose stories haven‘t been told, at least not through her unique lens, and then gets daddy‘s advice afterward. Whether you have daddy issues or a father who‘s inspired your path, you will be able to tap into my daddy‘s wisdom, wit, and humor at the end of every episode. My daddy has been a guiding light my whole life and there‘s not much he doesn‘t know, as an entrepreneur for forty-plus years, a husband, a loyal son, and my number one supporter. He has learned lots of life lessons along the way and is here to share them with you. It‘s time to reminisce and reflect on the conversations you‘d like to have with your daddy and learn from mine. Come share in some good old fashioned family bonding. There is wisdom from four generations and I’m addressing what happens from childhood to adulthood!

Better Call Daddy: The Safe Space For Controversy.
Matt collects chicken soup books, holds family board meetings, and is an eternal optimist even through many surgeries!
“My Mission is to push people to be the best they can be and to OWN that we were all made with limitless potential.”
Matt’s career has been highlighted by his passion for his customers and people. His career sales totals exceed $130Million. He’s coached and given talks within organizations such as Equitable, Vector Marketing, Red Hat, CoreNet, EO(Entrepreneur’s Organization), Oracle, Bank of America, Tarkett, Rheem, Google, and Front Row Dads. He has grown his reputation on the platforms of integrity for doing the right thing the right way and his highly energetic and enthusiastic personality. Matt lives in Charlotte, NC with his wife Julie and their 3 young daughters where he enjoys being a scratch golfer, avid sports fan, real estate investor, and a VERY active family man 😊.
One of the recent defining moments in Matt’s career came as a result of a freak zipline accident in 2015. As he was speedingdown a zipline, the attachment to the line broke and sent him falling to the ground where he crash-landed directly on his spine. Over the next 9 months his physical health deteriorated to the point where he ultimately wasn’t able to walk anymore and was in constant excruciating pain. Using his strategy of “let your adversities guide your growth”, he turned this great challenge into a great teacher and coached and spoke to teams and companies as he was literally lying flat on his back in his home office. Ultimately 2016 was his best year in business up to that date and Matt credits the support of his family and the preparation of his mindset through “eternal optimism” for his success.
