Matthew Hussey - What Makes A Happy Relationship?
Show Notes

Today I bring you the first of a mini-series on relationships which I have been waiting for for a while. But I couldn’t start them without my guest Matthew Hussey who started from humble beginnings, you know, being a life coach in the cafes of London, to being the coach for Christina Aguilera, to then having half of the corporate world listening to his advice, including Hugo Boss and others. And today he’s just talking to us so hey we’re doing well! But the thing about Matthew is that in 2013,  he had a  New York Times best-seller called Get The Guy. From there he became more and more successful internationally with millions and millions of followers, with events that changed the lives of thousands of people at a time - a wonderful human being. In the studio today we have his wonderful fiancée Audrey, and my incredible ex-girlfriend and a true, true soul partner for me, Shelly.

Matthew Hussey is a speaker, New York Times bestselling author, columnist for Cosmopolitan Magazine, and dating expert on ABC’s digital series What To Text Him Back. Matthew’s rise to success as a motivational speaker has been meteoric. From humble beginnings working as a life coach with individual clients in London’s coffee shops and cafes, Hussey now runs programs across the globe, helping thousands of men and women reach their true performance potential. Through his online programs, viral internet broadcasts, sell-out seminars, NYT Bestselling book, and his roster of private clients, he has been able to pass on his insights and strategies to countless people. 50,000 women have attended his live events and he has reached over 10 million online. Hussey is the new international guru of the dating and relationship-coaching scene.
