Matthew Perret, one of SilverFirst Inc’s finest, has been turning heads with his drive, motivation and infectious attitude in the office. One of the things that makes Matthew such a valuable asset to the SilverFirst Inc team is his go-getter mentality. Besides having big goals, the underlying reason behind those goals (his why) is even more impressive. As a leader and mentor in the company, Matthew is a great example of being willing to make sacrifices in the pursuit of achieving his goals.
This SilverFirst Inc stud was born and raised in Slidell, Louisiana and has been competitively racing sailboats since he was 13 years old. “I also love to water ski, wakeboard, paddle board, and spend time with my wonderful girlfriend and my family,” says Matthew. “Motivational books and articles are key for me. They refuel my mentality and keep me going strong. One thing I have found is that it is very important to overfill your mind with positivity so that it spills over to others around me, ultimately improving everything I do and everyone I spend my time with.”
President, Steve Silverthorne described Matthew’s contagious attitude this way, “It doesn’t matter if you are having a rough day or a great day; hang around that guy for five minutes and your day will instantly better.”
SilverFirst Inc prides ourselves on the training and coaching that is provided to each employee, regardless of their background and experience level. So we wanted to know what has been Matthew’s biggest takeaway so far. He answered,
“One of the most important things I have learned is maintaining a positive attitude and mentality is key in all aspects of life. Life is a grind stone. Whether the stone grinds you down or polishes you up depends on what you are made of.”
It’s no surprise with such an optimistic outlook on business and life why Matthew is doing so well at SilverFirst Inc. He looks forward to being able to help change other people’s lives by helping them achieve their personal and professional goals alongside his own. Matthew also added, “On a more personal level, I will have a house on a body of water with a boat in my backyard, a strong loving marriage with my girlfriend I am now dating and the financial freedom to be able to provide the life I want for my family and me.”
