Why Mojomatt ?
When I started bartending at 20, we used to always scream "Faya" before a shot.
That's how I became Fayamatt for years.
Then in 2016 I started MojoSons.
So when I decided to really establish my personal brand, I became Mojomatt.
If you don't know what the " mojo " is, according to Cambridge Dictionary it is :
a quality that attracts people to you and makes you successful and full of energy:
I'm from the country side of France, from a little city called Tours, mostly famous for wine and castles.
Nice childhood, I'm raised by my mother and I get picked on as a child because I'm super shy and ginger !
But everything else is fine.
I manage to finish high school alive, got my driver licence, saved some money by working during weekends and holidays and I can't wait to live my life.
2009 : I drop out of Uni after 2 months, get a full time job and save money to travel.
2010 : I fly to Australia to spend one year there with a one year working / holiday visa. Best decision ever !
2011 : In just a year down under I learn to speak english fluently, try about 30 different jobs, meet incredible people, get challenged a lot, travel to some incredible places, skydive, make more money than I though was possible.
After a year, it's time to go and I know what I want to do with my life... become a bartender !
Back home in Tours (France), I'm moving back with my mum.
One of my friend introduce me to the only Australian Bar in Tours. I meet the owner, lie on my resume, and get the job.
With that job, I move to a shared house with 2 friends. Life is good.
2012 : After watching the movie Cocktails about 10 times, I know everything I need to know about bartending.
I'm working in such a small bar, I don't need to know much about cocktails, but I learn as much as I can anyway because it's amazing.
During that year I learn how to manage a crowd, get the party started, get drunk way too much... I have the time of my life.
After working way too much, getting my heart broken by a girl, and a strong disagreement with my boss, I'm done.
I quit my job, my house with my friends and I go to Thailand for the first time.
2013 : I spend a total of 5 months in Asia. I almost don't drink, don't date, don't have fun.
My only focus is self improvement. I'm trying new diets, new routines, I work on myself to become better.
Oh and I start a blog, that don't get any visitors.
I go back to France in April.
Back to drinking, working in different places as a bartender... a lot of parties and drinks, not much else.
2014 : Working, drinking, working, drinking, working...
2015 : I'm back at the small Australian bar in Tours after 1 month in Brazil.
I start Ninjapero with 3 of my best friends.
We make Youtube videos on cocktails.
It's amazing, fun, but we loose focus and we're not able to break.
2016 : I quit my job again. This time I'm done, I don't work to work for anyone else. It's time to fail on my own.
After a month traveling in Europe and some time in Paris, I fly to Bangkok in April to look for a place to open a bar / cafe.
Long story short, I meet my business partner and in October we start MojoSons Events, an event planning company that specialize in Bachelor Parties and Fun trips.
2017 : Lots of challenges and fun time with MojoSons.
We meet amazing people and make unforgettable memories but we don't manage to bring a stable income.
2018 : I start to learn SEO to bring more customers into my business.
I'm also using that to grow my own blog.
Fayamatt.com become themojomatt.com and finally Mojomatt.me
2019 : With my business partner at MojoSons we decide to split ways.
He keep MojoSons Events that will keep running.
I keep MojoSons brand.
I dedicate all my time to star affiliate websites and grow my blog to become a digital nomad.
