#125: Heart Centered Service & Brotherhood For Life
Have you ever felt like life didn’t deal you a fair hand? Perhaps it has been full of difficult challenges, or you lost someone you loved way too soon. How do you take these experiences and turn them into something beautiful?
Today, I’m talking with my new friend, Matt Cubbler. Matt has spent his entire life in service to others – protecting his disabled brother when he was young, fighting for our country after 911, and working as a veteran in law enforcement for the past 25 years. He is also an author, speaker, and tireless entrepreneur.
In this episode, Matt shares his heart with the Front Row audience. He is as authentic and honest as it gets on how his brother’s death impacted him and his purpose for life. According to Matt, “I’m not necessarily anyone important, but I believe I have a story to tell and a life that is worthy of being shared.”''I never understood with God – why could you take him and not me.'' - Matt Cubbler Click To Tweet

About Matt Cubbler
Matt Cubbler has always lived a life of sacrifice and dedication to others. From serving in the U.S. Army after 9/11, to working as one of Pennsylvania’s most renowned police officers, to donating his time speaking to teens and young adults about the importance of leadership in their lives, he has devoted his life to helping others through both his professional and personal life.
To him these things come naturally. Because after growing up as the son of a single mother and the brother of a mentally disabled teen who was often picked on, Cubbler always knew it was his calling to serve others.
Today, Cubbler is still a full-time police officer, the COO of Max Out and a sought after public speaker who captivates his audiences through his personal story of struggle and triumph, his leadership training program based on his experiences as a soldier and his law enforcement officer and most importantly his life living with his best friend and brother whose life and death has inspired all that he has accomplished since that fateful day when Andy died in 1989.
