I'm Matt Gordon (and you're not).

Well, maybe you are. Occasionally, someone who shares my name asks if the domain name of my personal site, MattGordon.com, is for sale (it isn’t, but thanks for asking, you obviously handsome, wise, and honorable gentleman!).

Anyways, this Matt Gordon (pictured at left) has made a living in the marketing and advertising industries for almost 30 years, and has combined that experience with a passion for history to become The Authority Muse.

It means that I help writers, podcasters, marketers, and others with a personal brand (and a mission to change the world) achieve what I call “Generational Prestige.” Especially if they’re not named “Matt Gordon” — because the emails would get too confusing.

"What Is 'Generational Prestige' and How Do I Get It?"

In every generation, there exists a handful of people who are transformative in their own field and in their own way. These extraordinary people are in many walks of life — political and business leaders, inventors, scientists, writers, etc.

If you study the lives of these people and get to “know” them in-depth, you learn that they tend to share a handful of commonalities and follow the same patterns. You can adapt these patterns to modern marketing and use them to establish generational prestige in your market.
