Journey From Fear To Faith

My Interview with HealthyBlackMen.org

According to a New York Times op-ed written by Duke University Medical Center psychiatrist Damon Tweety, “black men are seven times more likely than white men to receive a diagnosis of H.I.V. and more than twice as likely to die of prostate cancer.” With that said, health education and inspiring men to go see the […]

As I head into this weekend’s events…I am reflecting back on how, during my first book signing, I asked Kim for assistance and she dove right in to help. All I had to do was show up and sign books. She partnered my book signing with my favorite pass time (tennis). It was a total success, and she never once asks for anything in return. Although I’d like to feel special…I’m not; she’s helped to create a wheel-chair tennis program, inner-city youth tennis program and has made sure that EVERYONE of all ages, cultures and abilities has the opportunity to play the sport we both love…TENNIS. A special thanks goes out to you Kim, it definitely takes a village, and I’m honored to have you as a friend.

Matt D Talford Book Signing

As I head into this latest meet the author event on Saturday Feb 27, 2016 at Shepherd’s Fold Bookstore in Rock Hill, from 11am-2pm, I’m reminded of what a wonderful time I had at my very first book signing. Thanks to all who came and I’m looking forward to meeting many more of you at the book signing this weekend!

In this interview on the Radio Show (“The Master Key”) host Solomon Keyes discusses the book, “From Fear to Faith: A Survivor’s Story” with author Matt D. Talford. Keyes asked Matt D Talford about moving from fear to faith in a situation and how any leader can use it to drive performance. His new book, From Fear To Faith: A Survivor’s Story, is focused on this topic.

This would be a great interview to listen to with your team, take notes, and then discuss. There are few things more important than intentionally creating the life you want to live.

Matt at South Pointe High

Just finished one of the most rewarding one-hour periods of my 23 years as a working professional. Today I was blessed to be able to spend part of my afternoon sharing my story (“From Fear to Faith: A Survivor’s Story“), as well as my upbringing, professional experience and life lessons with a wonderful group of writing students at South Pointe High School in Rock Hill, SC. And to my friend Mrs Carlo Goodson Dawson, thank you for the opportunity to participate in your Black History program and share with your students. That was so therapeutic for me; I’ll always remember it!
