Today I’m excited to welcome Matt Trinetti to The Quarter Life Comeback podcast.

Matt Trinetti is a former consultant turned deliberate journeyer and TEDx speaker who took a 7-month sabbatical to Iceland after the passing of a close friend.

Matt had been feeling a sense of “Is this it?” in his job, not hating life, but also not loving it. However, after his friend’s passing, Matt decided to fulfil a promise he’d made to himself for years: to slow travel around Europe with no fixed plans, guided only by his curiosity and interest.

Upon his return, Matt decided to quit his job and now helps other young adults find more meaningful work via Escape the City. This episode is packed with awesome tips and resources, and we get into some really powerful stuff.

Alright, let’s go hang out with Matt…
