Making Your Money Matter to Thrive and

Live a Life of Abundance

Money is important. It's important that you realize that and accept it. Your relationship with money is where most people get in trouble and start doing things they that go against the moral fiber of your being. And when you experience the amazing joy of what money can do for others around the world, you will certainly get motivated to earn more, so you can do more. That's exactly what happen to Cole Hatter and his wife Sonja.

Who is Cole Hatter?

Cole Hatter - husband, father, entrepreneur and investor. Cole is also the Creator of Thrive: Make Money Matter, a top rated business conference designed to help entrepreneurs create for purpose businesses to make more money, and then make it matter.

Cole Hatter with the kidsGrowing up Cole always knew he wanted to do something important with his life. Like so many of us, he did not want to sneak through life unnoticed and arrive at our grave safely; he wanted to shake things up, make a difference, matter, be remembered, and have a blast while doing it. Cole believes most people would like to live a life that looks something like that.

So, Cole Hatter decided to become a firefighter. What better way to give back, make a difference, and live a meaningful life than a career serving others? Unfortunately that dream was cut short by 2 accidents 2 months apart that left him in a wheel chair. Based on my injuries at that time, firefighting was out.

Cole's body was physically broken, his heart emotionally broken, and his bank account…it was “broke” too.

Out of desperation and an uncertain future, Cole pursued entrepreneurship. Fast forward a few years, and he has started several multimillion dollar businesses, he's living what others recognize as a dream life, and sure enough, it’s the life Cole dreamed of having. It’s important to know how to make the kind of money you’ve always dreamed of making, but it’s more important to not sacrifice actually living your life while you do it.

Being rich financially is meaningless if you’re bankrupt emotionally, spiritually, in your relationships, and in your purpose.
