Matthew Soldier was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and has spent his entire life there. He says that over the years he has probably lived in just about every Winnipeg neighborhood there is, and that he is particularly fond of the city’s West End.
For now, Matthew Soldier is working at the FXR Warehouse in Winnipeg, but he has greater aspirations in life. “My goal in life is to become financially free,” he says. And part of his strategy is learning about becoming an entrepreneur. “Entrepreneurship is all about meeting people and showing people they can be financially free, and live the life they want,” he says.
And so Matthew Soldier has always like to meet new people and make new friends. He says that in his opinion, it isn’t as easy for people to make friends as it once was, back before he was born. He has a Facebook page, and has plenty of Facebook friends on it. But he says as fun an interesting as that can be, it is no substitute for living and breathing friends and getting together with them face to face.
Even that can have its drawbacks to a person as people-oriented as Matthew Soldier. He says that it’s easy to get stuck in a rut with the same group of friends who know all your best and worst points, laugh at all of your jokes, and keep us in our comfort zones. He believes that it is important to always stretch his boundaries and break out of his comfort zone, because it is the only way to keep growing as a person and to achieve the goals that he has set out for himself in life.
