Mindful Parenting, Single Dad

Matt Zinman never saw himself as an entrepreneur. But when he got a divorce, Matt decided to become his own boss so that he could be a present, hands-on father to his, then, young son. Taking that leap wasn’t easy, but Matt works through his fears by moving through the world with relentless positivity and earned confidence.


  • Humans are incredibly adaptable. When we have to, we do.
  • Bravery means being afraid and pushing through the fear. Let your bravery bolster you, even when you’re brave for doing things that feel small.
  • We can’t control what happens to us, but we can control how resilient we are.
