Realizing Your Potential: Jack Lee Matthews Turns Hard Work And Skill Into Financial Freedom

Jack Lee Matthews has always been a big dreamer. Raised in North Carolina, he’s a self-proclaimed country boy. Every job he took, he always worked his hardest to be noticed by those in charge, whether it be folding clothes as American Eagle, making calls for supplements, or working for a big company like Verizon. Despite all his hard work, Jack quickly became restless, and he decided to move out west to California.
“I wasn’t sure what I would find there, but I thought going across the country was what I needed. I had a couple thousand dollars in my pocket when I arrived, but knew that wouldn’t go far. Knowing I was a good salesman, I looked for a sales oriented job and landed one at Elmore Toyota in Westminister,” Jack says.
Although he hadn’t worked as a car salesman before, he knew he’d work to be the best. After working for a while, he learned that the best salesmen understood their customers weren’t just buying a car, they were also buying stories.
“Being a great story-teller I quickly became their top salesmen,” Jack recalls.
Then, as it often goes in business, Jack ran into a bit of luck that pushed his career even further.
“Through a fortuitous elevator meeting, I met the finance manager of a Porsche dealer. We hit it off, and he encouraged me to apply to the downtown LA Porsche dealership. I made a terrific impression and got the position. Imagine being hired to sell Porsches at age 26,” Jack says.   
Determined to be the best in the dealership, no matter what, Jack made sure that every day he got up I felt like a winner and I expected to win. By being the first to get to work and the last to leave, he was able to achieve this, becoming the youngest “Porsche Grand Ambassador” ever, and accounted for $26 million in revenue to the dealership.
“My secret? The smartphone — and knowing how to leverage social media. Using my tech skills, I had a much bigger customer base than anyone else. I was on top of the “new wave” of digital marketing & commerce. I quickly realized, however,  that being on a salary — any salary  — was undervaluing my potential,” Jack recalls.
This realization pushed Jack to start his own digital marketing firm, Go Exclusive. This made him a seven figure income and led him to a new venture, Fansplan, of which he is Founder and CEO.
“Fansplan is a digital platform that connects contemporary entrepreneurs with potential customers at one digital address.  Fansplan users have the ability to connect with each other anywhere, anytime,” Jack explains.
The Fansplan digital residence allows personality-driven brands to start businesses with virtually no upfront cash. Fansplan is where you can be seen, develop a following, and create a revenue stream 24/7 with no out-of-pocket investment. Each personality or enterprise on Fansplan becomes branded, scalable, and transactional. Once a sale is completed, all transactions and payment processing is handled internally by Fansplan and its affiliated processor. It’s fast, simple and eliminates burdensome operational and administrative headaches for its members . Fansplan makes no money until its users make money — it receives a small % on each of their transactions. Jack was able to delve into his new venture because he realized he was being undervalued at his old job.
“By creating $26 million in sales for the LA Porsche dealership and only making $250,000 in personal income, alarm bells went off. I knew how to attract people to a product or service, I knew where to find them, what to say to them, and how to close them. I knew if I channeled this expertise into my own business I could make a lot of money. Not only would that be thrilling, but it would be an opportunity to live by my own convictions, choose my own lifestyle, and have the freedom to be and do whatever I chose,” says Jack.
Beyond knowing his own worth, Jack also had a desire to help others. Jack believes it’s one thing to become successful at a young age, but it’s even more exciting to make others successful simultaneously. Jack places a lot of value in watching others gain confidence, evolve, and develop a 24/7 cash flow. Because of his skill and experience, Jack is able to help others, including his family, reach financial freedom, just as he has.
“Financial freedom allows me the flexibility to keep dreaming, and keep striving for a higher orbit. My family comes first, and I certainly want them to be stable for years to come. But after my family is secure, in my view, financial freedom allows me to evolve and grow in lots of exciting ways,” Jack says.
