Joe is a story teller and schmoozer.  Since 1996, he has traveled the country telling stories about the places he’s been and the people he’s met (many of them famous) to small groups at exclusive VIP events.  He also shares his philosophy based on the lessons he’s learned along the way, or Rules, if you will.

Joe is a member of the National Speakers Association and his authentic style is perfect for after-dinner talks. 


  1. Be Grateful for what you have while you pursue what you want.  Jim Rohn.
  2. Have Fun 
  3. Be Safe
  4. Be Nice – No, Really BE NICE – Didn’t your mother teach you this?
  5. Deal with the hard stuff
  6. Work harder on yourself than on ANYTHING ELSE – bring more VALUE to the marketplace!  Jim Rohn.
  7. Be Generous
  8. BE (AWESOME!!!)


Joe created his current company in 1995.  He is a hands-on expert in sales, marketing and administration.  From $zero to several million$, Joe’s consistent pursuit of satisfied clients, has led to an incredible lifestyle full of many smiles & good times with family & friends.


In addition to selling millions$ in his own business, Joe was also an award-winning sales rep for major companies:  GTE Directories and BellSouth Advertising & Publishing.  During the nine years with those companies, Joe attended many, many, many, many…sales training sessions.  He also has been to the major seminars by Tony Robbins, Harvey MacKay, Jim Rohn (his fav), Tom Hopkins, etc.  And his BA Degree is in Applied Behavioral Science (business psychology).

Joe has gathered the pertinent information from top experts.  He shares that knowledge in an authentic interesting manner to help other entrepreneurs .  But his forte has always been relating to customers.  And that’s where Joe helps small business owners the most.

Joe’s major focus in all talks is ‘how can we deliver even more than this customer wants or expects?’  He is a huge proponent of making sure that all ‘internal’ customers are more than satisfied and that includes vendors.  Joe emphasizes individuality working for the common goal of satisfying ‘external’ customers resulting in everybody ‘winning.’

To paraphrase W. Edwards Deming, if you have a viable product/service and deliver it in a timely manner by appreciated team members, you can only experience one result – SUCCESS!!!

Topics include:

  1. Business Philosophy & Mission – who do you think you are?
  2. Goals – short term, medium term & long term – not just financial
  3. PR/Advertising – how are your prospects going to find out about you?
  4. Prospects found you & are interested.  Now what do you do?
  5. Constant contact – out of sight, out of mind.  You got to stay in touch.
