I'm Leaving YouTube

📝 Follow Matt’s Newsletter: yestheory.com/newsletter/

After five and a half years as a host on this channel, I've decided to step away. 'Thank You' are the only two words I can muster. You, this community, have shown me nothing but endless love and support. The video goes into detail about my decision.

I'll be writing a short newsletter twice a month at www.yestheory.com/newsletter. This is the newsletter I wish my 19 year old self had when I first set out to live a fulfilling life. When you sign you'll receive lessons, tips and tricks from ten years of seeking discomfort.

I'll also be working on the book which will come out in November of this year...but more on that later.

Come follow along on the ride. We're only just getting started :)

Also, make sure to wait till the end to watch our EPIC season trailer.

Love you all,

    Matt... thank you for this video. As a viewer I've been very inspired by the videos that you have helped to make. To be honest, I have a lot of fear around "settling down"... I turn 28 this year, I am getting married in the fall, and I feel a little like I missed out on a lot of the adventure that you talk about in this video. I'm not an extrovert - social situations give me a lot of anxiety - and I like my time alone. But I also want adventure and fun and to try new things. I can't wait anymore. I'm getting married, and it would seem like I wouldn't want to take a lot of risks, but I honestly feel like that is exactly what I should be doing. Maybe getting married is the ultimate reason to go and live the life I really want to live... with my partner. We can do all the things we want to do. We can do them together. I don't want it to be a reason to only do safe things. I have so many ideas and dreams that I want to pursue, and sometimes, as cliché as it may sound, videos like this do inspire me to go for those dreams. Thanks Matt.

He’s so awesome! After an awkward “where do I know you from?! “ I was so excited to know it was him! I had to get a pic 😆 Matt Thank you for the epic part of my Puerto Rico Trip! Good luck on your next chapter, you’ll truly be missed!

    Oh my ducking god!! Is this serious? Or another skit? It’s about him doing something for himself using yes theory to promote his new shit. Your not doing anything different bruh. You just won’t be in front of the camera. He is acting like he has had a secret family with two kids and a wife, just finding out he is now dying of cancer. Holy shit. Really like yes theory, I use to LOVE THIS CHANNEL a couple years ago but it’s now become part of the beast. It does standout with a light of positivity and a “vibe” of family but just a fraction of how it did a couple years ago. Maybe you should see a therapist for these such difficult transitions you are going through.

    I literally don't understand why he's leaving. He's not having a kid, he's not starting a family, he's not moving away. He already has this successful business, so many possible amazing experiences he could have. He literally just said he was writing a book and left. His loss I guess

  58. Leyren

    Leyren9 päivää sitten

    Peoples interest change while growing older. Sometimes in life you just want to do something different, following new goals. What "possible amazing experiences" are is subjective. Are you still pursuing the same hobby as you did when you were 12 year old? Did people tell you you are not allowed to drop something you did until now because you "are not having a kid"? If you force yourself to continue doing something you don't enjoy any more, it would just turn out to have a bad outcome anyway.

But stay fluid and clear and eyes open.perhaps something bad will turn to new growth or shedding of old skin.i dont know anything about you folks But i trust in the long run everything will work toghther for good on the highest level in your lives.
