“When we operate from the premise that everybody is going through something, we show more grace.” – Matt Miller
For over 30 years, Matt Miller has been serving kids, teachers, and their communities in the education system by helping them reach their potential. Join Dr. Michelle Robin as she invites him to share how he met John O’Leary, what inspired him to join John’s mission in 2016 after that interaction, and why they are on a mission to help people live inspired.

His story and wisdom will help you see that living a better life isn’t as complicated as we make it – we just need to do simple better.
