Daily Inspiration: Meet Matthew Haddix

Today we’d like to introduce you to Matthew Haddix.

Hi Matthew, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
Well, starting off about 3 years ago, I always was looking for skincare and beauty products that men can use on a daily basis and was having a lot of trouble finding them in stores. Especially lotion and creams. After searching and searching, I decided to research companies and pursue my own craft and start to make my own products that catered to men. In the beginning, it was very difficult due to a lot of men not wanting to be interviewed or talk about their beauty regimen on a daily basis but after some success, I created products that men were asking for and that men were looking for. Starting in Houston, TX. I moved to different states and shared my company and my products with a lot of people. I attended vending markets and pursued social media which increased my business a lot. I am just getting started and loving this journey.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
The road has not been smooth. There have been times when I wanted to shut it down due to not getting a lot of support and not getting a lot of sales. Also, a lot of people were telling me that the market is saturated and there is no point in trying to start this company but I never gave up and continued to progress.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
Well, I worked in IT and Technology for about 8 years, and currently, I am a full-time business owner and own a cafe. What sets me apart from others is that I am a very big people person. I love going out and meeting a lot of people and marketing my business to the unknown. I am also a voice actor and an aspiring actor as well.

Do you have any advice for those looking to network or find a mentor?
The advice I would say is to reach out on social media. Social media was made to connect to people all over the world in an instant and it has worked very well for my business. Also do not be afraid to put yourself out there. It’s your dream and business so do not be afraid to speak to everyone and people you do not know.
