Want to sell more; tell your story with Matt Shoup

Sometimes we have to look into the mirror of life and deal with what we see if we are serious about being successful entrepreneurs. Matt Shoup shared his story of how he learned to be vulnerable and honest with his clients, which led to deeper trust and connection. He also discussed his book, Painted Baby, which is a collection of stories from entrepreneurs and business leaders about their worst moments and how they used storytelling to build trust.

Hey Chop Squad, meet Matt Shoup a Jesus follower, husband, father, an award-winning serial entrepreneur, author, keynote speaker, Spain aficionado, aspiring paella chef, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt, and Spanish coffee addict at Café Sevilla. Matt’s entrepreneurial journey began at the age of 10, when he started a lawn mowing business to earn $200 for a boombox. It was then that Matt discovered his passion and love of business. Ten years later, while studying at Colorado State University, Matt was recruited by a college painting company, where he learned even more about sales, marketing, and business operations. 

In March of 2005, Matt was recently married, six figures in debt and working at a job he hated as a loan officer. Matt was laid off from that job, and from there, quickly founded M & E Painting with the last $100 he had to his name. M & E Painting grew quickly, and has produced over $35 million dollars in revenue since 2005. Matt and M & E Painting have received dozens of local, state, national and international business awards.

Matt has spoken to companies all over the world, in both English and Spanish.

Matt wrote his first book Become an Award Winning Company in 2011, and his second book, Painted Baby in 2023. Matt has founded 6 successful companies and grown them all from the ground up.
