Interview With CleanCo Founder: Spencer Matthews

What inspires you?

SM: Seeking a life without limitations.

How would others describe you?

SM: You would have to ask others. I suspect they might say, blunt, driven and occasionally funny.  

What do you do in your free time?

SM: Outside of work I like to be with my family but also regularly remain active through sport. 

What do you believe is your superpower?

SM: Having a naturally positive mindset and dealing with problems effectively and without the cloudiness of unnecessary emotion. 

What has been the most powerful piece of criticism you've received and how has it affected your career?

SM: Stop talking. Let others speak and mold your answers around what you’re hearing. 

Do you ever experience burnout and how do you handle it?

SM: I enjoy being overloaded. Makes me feel like my purpose is relevant. If it feels like too much I make sure to sleep well and train properly.

What motivated you to start your company? 

SM: I wanted to fill a gap in my own life. I fundamentally disagreed with the thought that cutting alcohol out of your life meant a boring existence.
