Creativity through the lens of a serial entrepreneur and master salesman
Creativity means "to solve problems that aren't the same way that everyone else does it."
I went to Duquesne University in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and double majored in accounting and finance. The majors were chosen because they give intrinsic skills that are needed by all businesses – everyone needs to know where there money is and how to get more of it. Finance covered a part of how a company gets more money; however the best way is through sales. Knowing that sales are the key to every business I worked a variety commission only sales position throughout my time at Duquesne. Following graduation I worked for three years as a personal financial advisor. In the first year, I was the office’s “rookie of the year”, in the second year I was the “underclassman of the year”, and the third year I left to create my first real estate business in 2011. Since then, my businesses have created revenue from properties in a vast array of methods. Some of the more common ways we create revenue in the real estate sector by preforming land lording services, selling investment grade properties to other investors, and renovation for sale of properties. I also run two podcasts – Father and Joe, and Local Football Flavor, I provide an ever growing amount of keynote addresses and presentations, as well as providing business and personal coaching services. Outside of my professional world I am a married man with a newly born son. In 2017, along with Father Boniface Hicks, we created the podcast Father and Joe. The goal of our podcast is to bring individuals closer to God. I also am an avid axe thrower – in 2019 I finished 192nd in the International Axe Throwing Federation Championship in Toronto.
