About Me

Who Is Richard Matthews

Family First Entrepreneur, Full-Time Traveler, Collector of Skills


Hey, I'm Richard.

I’m the CEO of PushButtonPodcasts & Host of The HERO Show.

I’m the guy people come to when they want to build a podcast to promote their business but don't want to spend a ton of time on it.

I travel full-time with my wife, 4 children, a standard poodle, and 2 ferrets. I spend 8-10 hours a week running my companies and the rest of my time living my best life. I've been living the dream for more than 6 years and have lots of ideas on how other entrepreneurs can do the same if they want.

I write on this blog about the concepts that let me live this lifestyle: Family First Entrepreneurship, Lifestyle Design, & HEROic Brands so other business owners can finally give themselves permission to play.

I am not currently accepting clients due to current projects.

If you feel that you are a unique case, feel free to reach out and we can discuss it.
