Since 2016

Moving You Towards Financial Freedom and Increasing Your Impact

My History

My journey as a CPA turned “Frugality Guru” hit national headlines in 2017 when my wife and I saved $50,000 in just one year by leveraging 17 Money Strategies.

Thanks to frugality I now have more in my life. More savings, more time, and now, even more fun. I created a business out of side hustle which was originally a hobby  – and now I’m helping members become financially independent with practical, data driven strategies.

You Don’t need a high IQ to be financially Independent –
You Just Need to avoid real big mistakes!

My Focus

My focus is on helping overwhelmed, overworked, and underpaid online entrepreneurs to take back control of their lives. I support these influencers and small business owners by building sustainable income streams that leave each person with less stress and a more deeply engaged audience.

This isn’t about optimizing as much as it is minimizing your time investment to maximize your impact.

Matt – Distilled Dollar

Full Professional Biography


Matt Zubricki, CPA, has been the owner and sole proprietor of Distilled Dollar, for the last 4 years. At Distilled Dollar, Matt works as an online content publisher helping online entrepreneurs, influencers, and small business owners achieve the impact they desire with their online site.

At the start of 2018, Matt made the leap to enter blogging full time and quickly shifted his online “launch” programs and trainings to trend into only recurring revenue launches – aka membership sites – and this focus on “membership launches” has led to new levels of time and financial freedom. 🙂

Since launching Distilled Dollar in March 2016, Matt has successfully built for himself a following of millions of online readers, viewers, listeners, subscribers, and clients who utilize the services that he offers through Distilled Dollar to help gain a stronger sense of control over their personal finances (in 2016 & 2017) and now gain a clearer sense of direction in their entrepreneurial pursuits (in 2018 & 2019). Matt attributes his extensive network of followers to his focus on connecting with his audience on a deeper level and providing them with distilled solutions to their current problems, no matter what stage of life they are at.

Throughout this successful approach to saving more and making more, Matt has gained a full-time business where he has published 250+ posts, 185+ videos, and 285+ podcasts on Distilled Dollar on the topic of personal finance and entrepreneurship starting in 2016. In that short, two-year span, Matt grew his business exponentially through free content. And by April of 2018, Matt’s following had grown so large that he was forced to stop creating content regularly and shift his attention to the growing demands of paying clients.

Since those early days back in 2016, Matt has expanded his repertoire and has been helping his clients increase their entrepreneurial impact and freedom by helping them create membership and subscription programs out of their own hobbies, side hustles, blogs, and much more – just like Matt did for himself. The goal is to launch what you already know using what you can already set up – which typically means 5 weeks and 2 hours a week for 90% of clients. For instance, Matt offers assistance in membership development through a group called Side Hustle Club (now version 3.0!), where Members receive regular and frequent content published by Matt himself, so that they too can learn the ins and outs of the online subscription business. In addition, Matt frequently cycles through a number of one-time courses that address specific topics and talking points of personal finance that users can sign up for. And soon, Matt will be reopening his Financial Freedom Community, which includes the latest and most advanced-level content to help them gain a deeper insight into the world of personal finance.

Matt’s extensive personal experience in coaching dozens of long-term clients and consulting dozens more on launches serves as his strongpoint for connecting with his clients, because he considers himself no different than just an average, ordinary person looking to save more, make more, and stress less. In addition, his personable, friendly, and warm personality allows his members and clients to feel comfortable when asking him questions regarding their launch or free content strategies.

Each and every day, Matt works to continue to serve his current and past clients and course alum, because he believes that following up is critical to ensuring success. As a dedicated and committed professional, he maintains the utmost level of integrity in everything he does, so that his clients continue to grow and learn through everything that Matt and Distilled Dollar has to offer.

Personal Life
Matt here! Aside from my work with Distilled Dollar, I can frequently be found spending time with my wife and our two cats. Although I’m highly interested in memberships and launches, I’m really an introvert at heart. I choose to step away from my work with Distilled Dollar when I can, so that I can enjoy the simple things in life, like time with my wife, competing in various triathlons, spending time with friends, relaxing at home, and binging some of my favorite television programs on Netflix.

I believe frugality and saving money can lead to more. With more we often stress more, but I focus on distilling the work and processes down so there is less stress and a simple, step-by-step framework. I suppose being a CPA makes me ultra-organized like that at times, but it also leaves me with more time with my wife, the cats, learning more, doing all that I can to leave an impact, and winding down at the end of a long day. For my clients and members, I’m always working to understand what matters most to them, so that I can continue to shape my future work with Distilled Dollar by what matters most to my clients and members.
