Joe’s job then became about building relationships and making decisions. As that transition began to take place, he needed and sought out more and more wise counsel. Looking back, Joe wishes that he had been able to find that one person who had already “been there and done that, who could be by his side. That’s what he is providing now – intimate, ongoing support.
In addition to his nonprofit work, Joe has created for for-profit businesses that have generated tens of millions in revenue, and created jobs for several teams of people. Joe would say that his superpower is that he is great at building pipelines. He likes to build catalytic systems that generate both revenue and impact. And that was the reason why Save The Storks had such a meteoric start.
Joe has been married to his wife Ann for over 10 years, and is proud of their three boys and one girl. They are his life adventures together. They are all about achieving big goals. In fact, his son Sam and he are climbing a series of very difficult mountains, with Sam being the youngest person ever to have climbed them. The final climb is El Capitan. All of his other work is a piece of cake compared to daily training to climb big walls with a five, six, and now seven-year-old.
