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,

    OMG! I just met Matt recently this past May in Puerto Rico! I had no idea he was leaving Yes Theory :( after watching this video it makes me so happy to know that I got to meet him! 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!

    Hahahahaha I just found this channel and you’re so right

  27. Justin Brewer

    Justin BrewerPred 5 dnevi

    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.

  40. Foxツ

    FoxツPred 7 dnevi

    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

  41. Foxツ

    FoxツPred 6 dnevi

    @Leyren Ya that's true, thank you.

  42. Leyren

    LeyrenPred 6 dnevi

    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.

    I see just found yes thery today,and i really hate to day this,i mean it but it wouldnt be rihht to go against my guts not for me or any of you.but as this episode was vloseing out i got a very distinct feeling that something bad was about to happen Kerp vigalant not paranoid as that may facilitate something negitive. 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. Stay frosty David
