The show reached worldwide coverage and received over 10,000 downloads a week. Matthew’s main advice is utilise time, believe in your idea and just keep working at it. There’s always going to be failures but there is also going to be successes so measure the two equally don’t just dwell on the negative, and see the failures for what they are, ideas for how to improve next time.
