What the initials S.M.A.R.T. stand for in career goal setting and how can I make a start?
S - Specific M - Measurable A - Achievable R - Realistic T - Timely Yet, there are few things that you should be aware of when it comes to goal setting. On top of everything, decide what you want to accomplish, do or be in life. Then, break down the whole (goal) into smaller and more achievable parts that you have to achieve. This will make it easier to manage and will show you the way towards reaching your ultimate goal. At last, create and develop a proper plan for your goal. Ideally, a step by step process that will allow and guide you to start working towards achieving it.

Could you please check the following sentence? I told the salesman that I was not interesting in buying the latest model.
Correct: I told the salesman that I was not interested in buying the latest model. Interesting acts as an adjective to describe the object, i.e the latest model may not be interesting. But, You need to complete the sentence with a verb in the correct tense, in this case past participle to continue what you started saying to the salesman.
What is a Matrix Organisational Structure and how does it work?
It is an organizational structure that allocates resources to multiple projects or products or geographies, promoting the horizontal exchange of skills and information. It allows employees from various departments to work part-time on different assignments and teams, without removing them from their functional positions. The reporting line is equally affected as employees may have multiple managers. For example, we have the project of implementing a new accounting system for the better handling of expenses, where we will need participants from the Accounting, IT, Sales, Marketing and HR departments. The employees will allocate part of their time in this project, usually until its completion, and they will report their day-to-day effort to the Project Manager who is responsible for the specific project. The same group of employees may in parallel continue performing their daily tasks as normal and, report on their overall performance to the head of their functional department.
