Ordinary people doing extraordinary things.


Meet the Host -Something Significant: Matt Gersper

Matt Gersper (aka Mr. Happy Living),is an author, motivational speaker, and businessman. He is the Founder of Happy Living: a health and wellness media and book publishing company. He is a three-time author: Turning Inspiration into Action, The Belief Road Map, and Inspiring Women. Matt believes a better self is always possible – today and every day… and he has dedicated the rest of his professional life to becoming all he is capable of becoming with the gifts he’s been given so that he can give to others, lift them, and help them become all they are capable of becoming with the gifts they are given.


Matt speaks to people about finding true self.

He failed and he’s succeeded. Lots of times. . .

Been hired. Been fired. Gone through divorce and nearly drowned – separate occasions!

Then one day at the bottom of a canyon, he woke up, took another chance.

He found truth and joy.

Love. Adventure. Significance. Things that matter most… to him!

And now he lives to give back.

To help. To inspire. To believe as he does, that a better self is always possible.


Matt graduated from the University of California – Davis where he studied economics, played Strong Safety for the football team, and pole-vaulted for the track team. Immediately after college, he pursued his childhood dream of becoming a professional athlete, only to come up short with the unique distinction of being cut from three different football teams, in three different leagues: Canadian, USFL, and NFL, all with names beginning with the letter R: Roughriders, Renegades, and Raiders, over the course of three years: 1983, ’84, and ’85.


In his leisure, Matt loves to hike, paddleboard, laugh, read, think, and spend time with his wife, his children, his dog, and his friends at his two homes on Lake Norman.

Something Significant broadcast Thursday@ 8:00pm est airs out of Mooresville, NC.
