Fresh out of college, Matt Toy found himself working a variety of different career paths and ultimately getting burnt out over the years. Managing the logistics of farmer’s markets in the Bay Area, working for a bakery while still in school, a year-long stint in landscaping, etc.
Although he learned a bunch of different skills along the way, he still found himself yearning for more direction and meaning in his life, and wanting to create his own online business. During all of this, Matt discovered yoga, which “saved him along the way”, helping him keep from tearing apart at the seams with the different jobs and busy lifestyle.
It wasn’t until after a solo, 500-mile pilgrimage across Spain that he started to realize what he wanted to pursue and decided to get the coaching he needed to kick-start the process.
These days, he has taken his passion for yoga and carved out an exciting path for himself, primarily focusing on running events and yoga classes for men who normally wouldn’t go to yoga.
Matt is a perfect example of hitting the eject button on a stressful career, tuning into your personal strengths and passions, and bringing it all together to create a meaningful and rewarding new career.
