    For as long as he can remember, Matt Racz has desired to serve humanity and be a force for good. He spent the majority of his 20's building Funderbolt, an impact-driven startup - going from a novice, first-time entrepreneur to raising millions of dollars in capital and impacting the lives of tens of thousands of change-makers. At 29, he exited the company to Arizona's fastest-growing software company, CampusLogic, fulfilling a lifelong dream and entering an elite category of entrepreneurs. With his new company, OptimusYou, he now helps business and community leaders strengthen their mindset, live their "Optimus You" identity, and establish powerful, daily protocols that create a heroic life.

    — Maya Angelou

    "A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself."

    - Joseph Campbell

    “If you are not the hero of your own story, then you're missing the whole point of your humanity.”

    ― Steve Maraboli

    “The true hero is one who conquers his own anger and hatred.”

    ― Dalai Lama XIV

    “The thing about a hero is even when it doesn't look like there's a light at the end of the tunnel, they keep digging, they keep trying to do right and make up for what's gone before, just because that's who they are.”

    ― Joss Whedon

    “A real hero doesn't expect to be thanked or even recognized.”

    ― Tom Collins
