The sad thing is, I actually started emailing one of his "partners" regarding my commissions explaining that, as a partner, he was now liable for my unpaid commissions.
He was really upset about the situation and stated that he had had similar emails from other unhappy members about not being paid, and was in the process of trying to get a refund on his investment, with no success.
I really wish I'd kept the email for proof. but, alas I didn't.
In my early days, I genuinely used to look up to Matthew as someone I wanted to aspire to be, whereas now, I aim to be the exact opposite and genuinely care about my members.
In a roundabout way, he taught me well.
