The hot summer sun has barely cracked over Texas’ Hill Country. Under the branches of an Ash tree, Matthew Layman sits with his legs comfortably crossed. Eyes closed and posture upright, he draws his breath gently in…then out. In repetition his breathing flows in unison as he enters a state of mindfulness. Connecting with his higher consciousness he listens to the messages that fill his mind and body. They will guide him throughout his day.
“I think one of the reasons I’ve found success as an Affiliate and in real estate is because every morning I start my day in meditation and stillness of what I want the day to look and feel like. I go inward and create those feelings and create images in my heart, body, and soul first—before going out there to do my business,” Matthew says.
A practice that keeps him grounded and focused, meditation has revealed a lot to Matthew about himself. It’s also how Matthew found PrimeMyBody and our Nano-Enhanced Hemp Oil.
“I was actually in Santa Fe attending a meditation workshop. After the retreat I was back in the city eating at a taco stand. A young man literally had a bottle of our hemp oil on the table. I asked him if it was hemp oil and he said it was. He ended up selling me his half used bottle. I took it back home and started doing research.”
His first test of the hemp oil’s effectiveness was on himself. Matthew is a healthy adult who lives a healthy lifestyle. But, working in real estate—an industry he says, “is a world riddled with high and low days,”— Matthew deals with the situational pressures that come with the profession. Noticing how the hemp oil aided his daily work life, his second research test was to see what people in his inner circle thought of the hemp oil.
“I’d say I got a lot more interested when I bought ten sample bottles off Dr. Erin (Pollinger) before I was even in the business. I wanted to know this product really did work, and not just for me. Some people that I know have legitimate health issues…and when eight out ten of them tried the hemp oil and said, “Matt, this product has changed my life,” I really fell in love with what we have.”
In less than six months Matthew has risen quickly up the Affiliate ranks at PrimeMyBody. The funny thing is, after working in network and affiliate marketing for well over a decade—starting when he was just 18—Matt swore he would never work in the industry again. Even after months of casual pitches and discussions with PrimeMyBody’s Lead Marketer, John Taylor, and Affiliate Dr. Erin Pollinger, Matthew was still tentative to jump into the business side of PrimeMyBody.
“I was going to leave the industry in my past and focus on real estate and meditation, but I guess the hemp oil had other plans for me.”
He credits not only the hemp oil for his resurgence in affiliate marketing, but also a new found devotion to helping others and PrimeMyBody’s plans for international growth.
“I love helping people create memorable experiences. I believe experiences are a lot more valuable than things. The fact that we’re opening up internationally got me really excited. If I can incorporate building a business with my lifestyle and love for travel that’s just a dream come true.”
Matthew isn’t someone that will waste your time. He doesn’t command a room or conversation with bravado or empty words. When he speaks it’s with sincerity and the wisdom that his life’s experiences has taught him.
Talking about his past you can tell he’s grown to understand that by helping others he can better sustain his own drive and peace of mind. Matthew knows he’s not perfect. That continued progress toward building and sharing positive character traits is the mission.
“I try to always think of the collective community as a whole. It’s taking and removing ego and looking through the lens of a community, a tribe, a culture of a family. It’s serving PrimeMyBody Affiliates and the community of the company as a whole,” he says. “I try to operate in what I believe is the law of abundance. The law of abundance just means that there is enough good and abundance around for everyone to thrive. I always try to wake up everyday with that principle as a guide because this world is filled with people who do live in fear and lack. If I can operate with faith and abundance then I’m doing my part to help this planet heal.
One of Matthew’s ultimate goals to is to move a million men to meditate. He views PrimeMyBody’s hemp oil as a catalyst for that movement.
“My dream is to inspire a million men to meditate. I felt this product was ideally suited to help men meditate. It helps people’s brains to calm and moves them to rest, recovery, and renewal. It can be helpful for people dealing with those real masculine emotions.”
As an Affiliate whose success has grown steadily, Matthew suggests meditation or quiet stillness as a way to center and focus the energy that’s needed to build a business.
“I do encourage Affiliates to start every morning in meditation. If you can’t wrap your head around meditation, at least start your day by visioning and getting excited for what you want your day to look and feel like.”
We’re certainly glad Matthew stepped out of his affiliate marketing hiatus to become a leader in the PrimeMyBody community.
Cheers to you, Matthew.
