Matt Walker

Matt Walker has conquered mountains on every continent, earned a master’s degree in applied behavioral science, launched his own personal development company and written a book, Adventure in Everything (Hay House, 2011) — all before his 40th birthday. But he’ll be the first to tell you that what you accomplish isn’t nearly as important as how you go about accomplishing it.

What matters, says the 38-year-old Walker, is to be mindful and intentional in all your actions — from taking your next step on a rock wall to choosing the next step on your life’s path.

That’s the whole idea behind Walker’s company, Inner Passage (, which Walker established with a conscious goal in mind: helping others embrace their sense of adventure, make more mindful life choices and expand their sense of self in the process.
