Matt was at rock bottom. Working two jobs, accused of a crime he did not commit, broke and sharing a room with another homeless guy AND a goat (seriously). Then, on his drive home, when the night was getting darkest, his least favourite Springsteen song came on the tape deck. Why couldn't those kids just realise that their lives weren't over? Why couldn't Matt?
As I mentioned in his intro, Matthew Dicks is one of North America's leading personal storytellers. You can learn more about him on his website which includes links to his twitter, instagram and facebook accounts. You can also learn more about Matthew's analytical approach to storytelling on the podcast that he hosts with his wife Elysha Dicks. It's called Speak Up Storytelling.
