TheMOV.org is a non profit foundation that helps teach people from all walks of life how to live healthier, smarter, and become more productive. We have no offices and nor employees. We are simply a community that live all over the world and help each other in as many ways as we can. Without any offices or employees, our overhead is extremely low. Sure, we have a few freelancers who will help out time to time, but we try to implement as many open-source pieces of software and open-source ideas so each member can benefit from our work to its full potential.
Founded by Matt Hackney, TheMOV has grown to over 800,000 members and is growing every day. We have books, videos, and classrooms all geared to help individuals build skills they have always dreamed of learning such as ballroom dancing, weight loss, getting rid of the 9-5 job, and so much more. We have even opened a network of sites we call theOpens. In theOpens, you can find tools to help you write your first book, open your first business, sell art and photography online, and even direct your own film. We supply tools, tutorials, and an outreach program so you may utilize the same network that we use to create what you see before you. We use theOpens to write our own books, to direct our own films, and to sell our own photography & we share that with everyone else.
In addition to taking great care of our Minds, Bodies, and Souls ~ we take great care of the Earth. Our affiliates are involved in fundraisers to save the ocean, to help fight cancer, to educate gangs, and to beautify our cities. We accept faxes through email to save paper. We save client databases electronically instead of filing with paper. We do no advertisements via paper and we accept no sponsors unless they live up to our Green Policy. Our affiliates are our backbone and they are encouraged to live by these standards to shape each community into a better place.
Since we are an open-source community and with no staff, you are actually TheMOV! As advisors on all areas of life, we are happy to teach anyone how we made our website, how to get in shape, how to do practically anything. Looking on the site, you’ll be inspired by all the people who are there to help you out and who are making progress in their lives. TheMOV is a new wave of social networking where we come together around the world as one community to move forward in whatever way possible.
Matt was a personal trainer for many years and branched out with his company to start MOVFitness – a collection of personal trainers who all worked with his method to help people lose weight and get in shape. He wrote a book on all of this and continued to see people see success every time with his method. He then had other authors approaching him asking how he became successful with writing. All the while, he was learning a new hobby – ballroom dancing. Within a year, Matt had an internship teaching aspiring authors around the world how to publish their first book and he had grown into a professional ballroom dancer. He even helped his dance studio double their income and his own business was flourishing with clients. Universities were grabbing his books and students from as far as China & France were enrolling in his new internship program.
Something sparked inside of Matt when he became a successful author, personal trainer, businessman, and ballroom dancer. He realized that what he was doing wasn’t personal training, but in fact life coaching. This was the birth of TheMOV. No longer concentrating on teaching just the physical aspect of life, TheMOV enabled his company to show people we want balance in our Minds, Bodies, and Souls. This is the epitome of TheMOV. All the people we have helped throughout the years are now professionals, too, and you may find them in our community.
We continue to create new programs that enable our community to work from home, increase their awareness, and meet other fun members. With no overhead, we are able to give back practically all the funds for a project. When someone sells their photography with us, we give back up to 90% of the photo profits to the original photographer. If someone sells their book with us, again, they get up to 90% of the profits made from selling it. This allows authors and creators to sell their content at much lower prices while they will also retain higher profits from any other company. How cool is that?
Thanks for being a part of TheMOV and we look forward to having you involved in making new dreams come true for you, your community, and the world!
