Our Story

I Mathew Pedersen, 28, the founder of Ambitrek Marketing grew up in a small town, Payson, Utah. 1 hour south of Salt Lake City, UT. I have 7 younger siblings making me the oldest of 8 kids. I have an incredibly hardworking Mother that works as an English teacher, and had such an inspiration of a father displaying such love and care for others to look up to that has since passed. My dog's name is Stella. I rescued her 2 1/2 years ago, she is a blue nose pitbull from an animal shelter in Houston, TX. In my spare time, I love to be outdoors, I love spending time with my family, I love hiking with my dog, taking photos in the mountains (my photography), or surfing down the mountains on a snowboard.

I acquired the inspiration to be an entrepreneur in Nov. 2015 when I was frustrated with corporate America working my administrative job registering and maintaining state licensing for an alarm company while going to school at UVU full-time in pursuit of an Accounting degree? (I laugh reflecting back lol. Ew.) No matter how hard I worked, my boss decided how much I was worth, what I did, and he decided when he did it. Everything I was doing I felt like I didn't control, and I really didn't like it. This was all the motivation I needed to become an entrepreneur.

My entrepreneur venture started by joining and working on 3 different MLM/ Pyramid Schemes (lol)/ Network Marketing companies having some success building teams. I worked with Vemma, Wake Up Now, and MCA. Through these experiences is when I realized I didn't have to work for somebody forever, and I could make as much as I made myself worth. So I quit the admin office job and started working a full-time sales job selling credit repair while still going to school full time at UVU in Orem, Utah working on my general education. My parents were poor growing up, so I was fortunate enough to receive grants that paid for my college tuition. When my mom got her whopping 38K a year salary as a teacher, my grants were revoked and I dropped out of college with my generals completed after paying for just 1 semester. As it didn't serve a vital purpose in what I wanted to do, run my own business.

In May 2015 I moved to Minneapolis, MN to hang out with their state bird the mosquito, well also to sell alarm systems door to door. I decided to go work for 4 months out in Minnesota during the summer so I could come back home and have some money to invest in starting a business. I had a successful summer selling after inching up that oh so brutal learning curve with cold door-to-door sales. Convincing a complete stranger to invest 3K into an alarm system within an hour of meeting them was the hardest thing I'd ever tried to do. Until the next hardest thing I tried to do.

Which was taking a leap moving out to Houston, TX in Nov. 2015 to start an internet marketing business with little to no startup capital. Initially, I had 2 business partners. Our services worked to increase our clients targeted traffic, lead generation, and revenue. Our services mainly consisted of Website design, Pay-Per-Click (PPC) marketing, and SEO marketing. With my sales background, I handled client relationships and acquisition. Over time I learned from my two nerdy tech business partners the majority of the technical aspects of the marketing we provided and I became more involved in the service fulfillment and marketing operations for our clients. 1 year in, 1 of my 2 business partners fell off after stealing some money when we told him there was NO WAY he could have 25% of all revenue, WOW, didn't expect that one. How would we operate? lol. Anyways, my remaining partner and I ran a successful internet marketing company for 2 years ranking client's websites in Google for targeted traffic and sales.

But, there was one BIG issue left. I felt I had no other option but to separate from my now ex-business partner as he would lie and exaggerate truths to clients and potential clients which I had attempted many times to talk with him to correct it only to fail. This resulted in me divorcing my business partner and moving back to my glorious home nature-loving state, Utah in November 2018. Where I have since been working with local and national businesses driving targeted traffic to increase lead generation, sales, and revenue for businesses.
