Joe is an “odds beater” and electrifying speaker your audience will never forget! Born and reared by a teenage mother in one of the toughest inner-city ghettos in Miami, he watched six of his friends die before he reached the age of 16.
In spite of growing up in a family plagued by alcoholism, drugs, and abuse, Joe started his first successful business (a retail clothing store) at the age of 22; became the youngest professor ever hired to teach at an accredited university in the state of Florida at the age of 24, and owned and operated a successful special events/public relations agency at the age of 26.
Currently, Joe is the president and founder of RealWorld University, the largest college student success web site in the country. He has also worked as a communications director for the Florida’s Governor’s Office, and as a top sales trainer for a Fortune 500 company.
Over the past decade, Joe has spoken for more than 550 businesses, governmental agencies, associations, colleges and universities. And he’s been recognized nationally as “America’s #1 Educator Motivator™” and was voted “America’s Campus Speaker of the Year” by the Association for Programming Campus Activities.
