Joe shared: “I am passionate about people, and empowering and inspiring humans to fight to be their best, to attain joy and fulfill their glorious purpose in life. I’ve learned this is possible through humility, compassion, empathy, giving of my time and openness in sharing life experience and lessons hard learned. I strive to seek out gratitude in every simple and complex thing in life and have found it has created a positive shift in my life”.
