You (Yes, YOU!) can make or fix nearly anything. Its true! Ultimately these abilities result from a superpower that lies within each of us: the ability to self instruct. Matt McEntee wants to learn and help others learn. This is why he has made a practice of helping anyone make or fix nearly[1] anything.
