    Matt Moore - Creating Lasting Business Leaders Through Focusing On Everyday Life Relationships.

    Owner of Heartland Direct, a multi-million dollar company and president of the Young Business Men Of Tulsa club (YBT) - Matt Moore, 26 speaks about how YBTs mission may differ from the norm when it comes to successful business.

    The mission of YBT is clear, "to create business leaders for a lifetime." However, the perspective taken by YBTs president to develop business leaders differs from what you might usually find.

    "Your Bottom line and profit is not the most important thing in the world. Making sure that your personal affairs, spiritual life and relationships are in order comes first because without those the financial gain is worth nothing." - Matt Moore

    While this might seem different from what we commonly hear about business being all about profits; Karson Kraybill, business authority consultant echoes Matt - "Focusing on profits is an easy way to forget what matters most, the relationships you foster with people everyday."

    Matt goes on to say, “Those in business who take before they give are what I call business card ninjas, throwing out cards trying to create one-sided relationships. In the end that’s not what business is about.”

    YBT might be considered young for a business club at only 1 year of age but has many accomplishments under its belt; staying true with putting people first YBT recently raised 10k for kids in need at Christmas time. Matt expressed his joy in personally going bike shopping with over 30 children.

    With beliefs rooted in fostering relationships while helping, the club mentioned its wishes to move towards monthly good deeds on a smaller scale.

    In addition to helping the community and offering members mentoring from business leaders in the region, YBT holds monthly luncheons. The luncheons are free to the public and host a new influential leader to share applicable principles and advice in business and life.
